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 DVD 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.
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. Every NRG-1.5 cable features two barrel-shaped RF stoppers that filter RFI (radio frequency interference) in both directions. They keep outside interference from entering your equipment, while also preventing noise generated by your digital gear from affecting other components in your system.
Make sure it fits your component
The NRG-1.5 works with most components that have a detachable, two-pole "C7" power cord (see illustration above). That includes many DVD players and Blu-ray players, most cable and satellite set-top boxes, a few audio receivers, and all PlayStation® and Xbox™ game consoles.
