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.” AQ Monsoon solves this problem by the use of True-Concentric Conductors to minimize strand interaction & magnetic confusion. This geometry is further enhanced by the reduction of EMI noise using AQ’s patented Ground Noise Dissipation Technology. Lastly, directionally controlled conductors and AQ’s ZERO Technology (no characteristic impedance) contribute to the excellence of this power cable. Monsoon and Stellar, the perfect match.
