Description:

The Challenge: No matter how perfect an AC power source, distortion is added within any cable carrying AC, especially within any stranded cable. Even the most sophisticated power supplies and filters cannot completely eliminate these upstream irregularities.
The Solution: NRG-5 uses solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors in a Self Shielding Counter-Spiral Hyperlitz. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, which is the greatest single source of distortion in an audio cable or an AC power cable. PSC+ copper’s exceptionally high purity, nearly perfect surface finish, and refined interior grain structure dramatically reduce distortion compared to OFHC or other metals. The Counter-Spiral geometry minimizes conductor interaction while maintaining a fixed low-inductance relationship between conductors.
NRG-5’s two RF Stoppers filter Radio Frequency Interference in both directions. They prevent outside interference from entering the equipment, and they prevent equipment generated interference (from all digital equipment and tuners) from reaching other equipment in the system.

Review:

Audio Drom: “Audioquest NRG-5 would be a very good choice when in doubt about a power cable selection. Above all, it is exquisitely quiet – one of the quietest cords in this test. The sonic events are drawn against a very dark background which subjectively increases the sense of dynamic and the musical enjoyment. However, the Audioquest does not surpress the ambient information; neither the precious detail. In Hurt you may hear less fingers on the guitar’s neck, but…wait a moment…what was the sound at the 0’21 mark in the left channel? You can simply hear much better into the mix than with some other cords – once the track is getting busier the NRG-5 doesn’t lose control and the voice, guitar and other elements remain nicely delineated. The cable does not work with such rich color palettes as the Cardas, so its sound may tend to be too controlled (too neutral?) here and there, resulting in a certain carefulness of the voice of Vienna Teng or Elvis. Things are simply too tidy, similarly to the Oyaide, and they lack the ultimate sense of unbridled energy.”
