Low-Z / Noise-Dissipation 3-Pole AC Power Cable

Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) & Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors
True-Concentric Conductors Minimize Strand Interaction & Magnetic Confusion
Ground Noise Dissipation Technology (US Patent # 9,373,439)
ZERO (No) Characteristic Impedance (50Hz – 1MHz) Enables Uncompressed Current Transfer
Directionally Controlled Conductors


Ground-Noise Dissipation Technology
AC Ground wires provide protection from current-wiring faults, but they also act as antennas. Thus, they are subject to induced radio-frequency (RF) noise. This RF noise bypasses component power supplies and is typically coupled directly into a system’s most sensitive audio/video circuits. AudioQuest’s patented Ground-Noise Dissipation greatly reduces this distortion, yielding unprecedented levels of noise dissipation across the widest bandwidth (range) of radio frequencies possible. Our unique circuit topology utilizes a common-mode phase-cancelling array, in concert with proprietary dielectric materials which provide additional differential linear filtering. (US Patent # 9,373,439)

High-Purity True-Concentric PSC+ & LGC Conductors
With only Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) on the outside, Monsoon’s conductors are essentially all PSC+ even though the conductor core is Long-Grain Copper (LGC). Both superior metal and conductor geometry greatly reduce ear-fatiguing Transient Intermodulation (TIM) Distortion.

Uncompressed High-Current Transfer
While many AC power cables feature low DC resistance in order to accommodate the demand for high current, a cable’s characteristic impedance is also crucial for optimal performance. Unlike most AC cables that constrict or compress an audio-provoked transient, AudioQuest AC cables combine low DC resistance and ZERO (no) characteristic impedance in order to deliver uncompressed high-current transients on demand.

All drawn metal strands or conductors have a non-symmetrical, and therefore directional, grain structure. AudioQuest controls the resulting RF impedance variation so that noise is drained away from where it will cause distortion. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio cable. When applicable, arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality. For most models of AQ cable, the arrows not only indicate the direction that optimizes metal-directionality as part of Noise-Dissipation, but also indicates non-symmetrical attachment of shield and GND in order to optimize full-system performance.

AQ Monsoon/Niagara 1200 combo
I wanted to upgrade from a 14 gauge AQ NRG Z-3 to a 12 gauge 2 meter power cable from the wall to my Niagara 1200 power conditioner. TTVJ said the AQ Monsoon/Niagara 1200 combo are a perfect match. TTVJ also offered the best price I could find for the 2m Monsoon power cord. Turned out to be a great combo. I noticed an immediate sound improvement.

Monsoon is a good power cable
Guys at PSAudio recommended Audioquest Monsoon power cables for our PSAudio equipment. We tried them and removed the one from the amp after a few months and put a Pangea AC14 SE MkII in for a test. The music seemed to be less lively and less detailed. We switched back and recovered the sweetness that we had become accustomed to.
