AudioQuest NRG-1.5

Overview

Our take on the AudioQuest NRG-1.5

The AC power that feeds your gear is really the foundation of your system's audio and video performance. Even if you've plugged your components into a power conditioner to clean up the current coming out of your wall, a flimsy stock power cord can act as an antenna for airborne interference that subtly degrades high-resolution audio and video signals.

A high-performance power cord? Believe it.

Can a better AC power cord really improve a component's performance? The surprising answer is "yes." Many Blu-ray players, satellite/cable boxes, and video game consoles come with a detachable power cord, which gives you the flexibility to upgrade to a higher-quality cable. Simply replacing a component's stock power cord with AudioQuest's NRG-1.5 low-distortion AC power cable can noticeably improve your system's picture and sound quality.

Why power cords make a difference

The AC power that feeds your gear is really the foundation of your system's audio and video performance. Even if you've plugged your components into a power conditioner to clean up the current coming out of your wall, a flimsy stock power cord can act as an antenna for airborne interference that subtly degrades high-resolution audio and video signals.

Cross section

Advanced materials and construction for lower distortion

The NRG-1.5 uses four solid conductors made of high-purity long-grain copper. Solid conductors eliminate interaction between wire strands, which is a major source of distortion in an AC power cable.

Make sure it fits your component

The NRG-1.5 works with most components that have a detachable, two-pole "C7" power cord. That includes many Blu-ray players, most cable and satellite set-top boxes, a few audio receivers, and all PlayStation® and Xbox™ game consoles.

I was skeptical, but there was a slight but immediate improvement in picture quality on my 55" 1080p Sony TV.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Audioquest NRG-1.5 Power Cord uses solid Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) conductors in a Quad-Helix configuration. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, which is the greatest single source of distortion in an audio cable or in an AC power cable. The nearly perfect surface finish and interior grain structure of PSC copper dramatically reduce distortion compared to OFHC or other metals. The Quad-Helix spiral creates a fixed low-inductance relationship between conductors.

Construction: The Audioquest NRG-1.5 Power Cord features four 19 AWG solid perfect-surface copper (PSC) conductors inside a UL CL-3 rated black PVC jacket surrounded by a black, blue, and red flexible nylon braid.

Connectors: The Audioquest NRG-1.5 Power Cord features a C7-2 pole connector on one end to plug into your audio/video electronic component and a 2-prong North American AC connector on other end to plug into your AC wall outlet.

Available Lengths: The Audioquest NRG-1.5 Power Cord is available in a 3', 6', and 10' length.

1 question already asked

Per the specs and research we have on file for the Onkyo BD-SP809 Blu-ray player, the AudioQuest NRG-1.5 cable would work as a replacement power cord. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159 [ Larry  Mar 25, 2016 ]  Staff
