PAUL'S REFERENCE AudioQuest Dragon AC Power Cable

PS Audio's choice for our Reference System

AQ Dragons are available in two versions: High (Variable) Current for Power Plants, power amplifiers, and any power conditioner, and Source (Constant) Current tailored specifically for source equipment and lower-powered devices like DACs and transports.

Power amplifiers present a real challenge for any AC power source, as the transient current requirements can be many times that of the average current consumption. Power amplifiers are also unique from all other components in that the current draw is dynamic, not constant, and it changes with volume and audio signal content. Though many AC power cords may feature low DC resistance to allow for some of this requirement, the characteristic impedance of the AC cable is equally responsible for assuring uncompromised performance.

PAUL’S REFERENCE AudioQuest Dragon AC Power Cable

Product Description

Paul’s Reference power cable choice for the entire Music Room II Reference system is AudioQuest’s Dragon. Paul uses the fixed-current Dragons for the source gear and the variable-current Dragons for Power Plants and BHK Amplifiers. These babies are the best he’s yet heard and will make magic in your system.

One of the biggest improvements to Music Room II—PS Audio’s Reference System—has been the addition of AQ’s Dragon power cables. These gems have breathed new life and opened up the soundstage in ways rarely experienced in this world class system.

AC power technology is well over a century old and was never designed to meet the exacting standards of today’s high resolution audio-video components. AC noise is at the utility source, and is made worse by the component power supply. This creates distortion and low-level signal losses via the “masking effect.” The AQ Dragons solve this problem by the use of superior conductors, controlling the characteristic impedance, and dissipating ground noise. Connect a Dragon to your high-end audio system today, and get ready to be amazed.

This product qualifies for our risk free in-home trial in the continental United States when purchased directly from PS Audio. Break-in on AQ Cables may be required for optimal performance.

Solid 100% Perfect-Surface Silver

Perfect-Surface Technology applied to extreme-purity silver provides unprecedented clarity and dynamic contrast. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver minimizes distortion caused by the grain boundaries that exist within any metal conductor, nearly eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers.

ZERO Tech (No Characteristic Impedance) for Uncompressed Current Transfer

With current capacity of 20 amps RMS @ 125VAC 50/60Hz (16 amps RMS @ 220-240VA 50/60Hz), Dragon High-Current can withstand current transient peaks many times its continuous (average) RMS rating. This makes Dragon High-Current ideally suited for a wide assortment of AC power conditioners, power regenerators, AC isolation transformers, and AC battery backup devices, as well as any power amplifier, powered subwoofer, powered loudspeaker, powered receiver, or integrated amplifier.
