When people design power cords they use massive cable to reduce the noise voltage on the cable. The noise voltage that occurs on the cable is related to L (inductance) and di/dt (the rate of change in the current). You can reduce L by using larger gauge wire but you dont get much bang for your buck because it is a log function.
What this means is that as you keep increasing the gauge of the wire you do not get much improvement for your effort. This is why you see people using very heavy and stiff wires in power cords. We have seen some power cords that are so big and stiff that the CD player connected to them is lifted off the ground. What they have done at Analysis Plus is use computer simulation to optimize the design of a power distribution system. What they discovered is their patented hollow oval design provides a low L cable without having to use stiff and bulky cables.
Their cables have a super low noise voltage to reduce the background noise to a minimum. This is extremely important during quiet passages, if you want to hear subtle details (this is very important for classical music fans and for other lovers of live music). The other thing people dont realize about low frequency noise is that the thin aluminum shield found on many power cords does nothing to reduce this problem. The best way to reduce low frequency noise on cables is to reduce loop area. From their computer simulation and measurements they found their patented hollow oval cables do a great job at this.
They have the lowest noise voltage we have seen with their hollow oval design. For higher frequencies their silver-plated copper braided shield does a great job. They used an open braid design that works much like the window on your microwave oven. You can see through the window but the radiation stays where it belongs.
Terminated with WattGate connectors, this power cable is engineered to deliver your audio/video components the clean power they deserve. Analysis Plus pro cables are fine precision instruments and should be treated that way. Many cable companies treat their cables like a commodity. They will replace the cable without looking at it, because they make the cables for pennies. They are not that type of cable company.
They seldom see their cables fail. The connection can fail when people trip or jerk on the ends of the cables and cause damage to the connector, if this is the case they will fix the connector for a fair charge as listed on their website under connectors.
