Ideal for video displays, powered speakers, and all other electronics, NRG-Y3 (3-pole) cables use direction-controlled Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors in a Semi-Solid Concentric arrangement in which the individual copper strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle. This construction significantly reduces strand interaction distortion. The greater purity and more uniform grain structure of Long-Grain Copper further reduces distortion. In addition, NRG-Y3’s direction-controlled silver-plated shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise to ground.
A non-technical analogy for this might be that if you drop a coin in a tube with shampoo in it, no matter how wide (low resistance) that tube, the shampoo (the Characteristic Impedance) is going to get in the way (compromise current transients). Eliminating Characteristic Impedance (Zero means No in this application) is like having only air in the tube, as close to a vacuum as possible. Whether the amp is running at less than a watt or is fully maxed out, the unrestricted transients are visceral — something the whole body understands, no words required. Email for a larger size.
