Blizzard

Power Cable

Upgrade a wide range of audio/video components, constant- and variable-current alike, with AudioQuest’s Blizzard 3-pole AC power cable. Blizzard features True Concentric Perfect-Surface Plus (PSC+) conductors that have been carefully controlled for directionality to efficiently drain RF noise. ZERO-Tech ensures uncompressed current transfer while RF/ND-Tech minimizes circuit misbehavior by cancelling induced RF noise for quiet backgrounds and thrilling dynamics. Blizzard adds AudioQuest’s patented 72v Dielectric-Bias System, which further reduces radio-frequency noise.

Key Features & Technology Explained

  • Compared to Semi-Solid Concentric Conductors, True Concentric further reduces strand-interaction, resulting in lower distortion and improved resolution.

  • AudioQuest's best copper. To the greatest extent presently possible, extreme-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors minimize distortion caused by grain boundaries.

  • ZERO-Tech eliminates the electrostatic field between the cable’s high and low signal conductors, enabling linear Radio Frequency (RF) Noise-Dissipation, and uncompressed transients.

  • RF/ND-Tech minimizes circuit misbehavior by cancelling induced RF noise.

  • 72v Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) saturates and polarizes insulation, allowing clear, dynamic sound against a quiet “black” background.

  • All conductors controlled for RF-noise directionality.

Description

    High-Purity True-Concentric PSC+ Conductors
    Blizzard uses only our very purest copper: 100% Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+). Both superior metal and conductor geometry greatly reduce ear-fatiguing Transient Intermodulation (TIM) Distortion.

    ZERO-Tech
    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.

    RF/ND-Tech
    AC Ground wires may provide protection from an electrical short circuit, but they also act as an antenna. 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 RF/ND-Tech greatly reduces this distortion, yielding unprecedented levels of noise dissipation across the widest bandwidth (range) of radio frequencies possible. Our unique circuit topology uses a common-mode phase-cancelling array, in concert with proprietary dielectric materials which provide additional differential linear filtering. US Patent # 8,988,168.

    72v Dielectric-Bias System (DBS)
    Insulation is also a dielectric that can act like a shunt-filter. Biasing minimizes dielectric-noise and linearizes the filter, significantly improving wide-bandwidth dissipation of induced RF noise.

    Directionality
    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.
