Audio Engineers Lightspeed Power Cord Series

Audio Engineers writes: "In audio systems, power cords play an important role. Through these, the equipment is connected to the electrical network, to which thousands of other electrical appliances (eg. Refrigeration and washing machines, air conditioning, household appliances, machine tools, home solar power system) are connected every day. These devices do not only use the electrical network but also cause disturbances in them. These disturbances affect most of the audio- and video devices." 

Lightspeed power cord series by Audio Engineers

The audio- and video systems basically is using modulated household electricity. So this should arrive at the device as quickly and in the cleanest, disturbance-free form as possible. In this case, special and high quality, and high-performance power cords are essential.

The power cords in the Lightspeed series attract attention with their high quality and unique look.

LightSpeed Pure Energy technology

All LightSpeed power cord includes a special Pure Energy electronics that can effectively filter DC components that contaminate the alternating current. This results in a cleaner sinusoidal alternating current, which results in more efficient operation. 

Nano Black Helix outer layer

The new dual Nano Black Helix outer layer not only provides a special and unique appearance to the Lightspeed series power cords, but the special polymer film with a coating of 500 nanometers thick metal prevents radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference from entering the cable inner structure. The fields generated by the current in the pure copper conductors are effectively attenuated by the internal shielding, while the new improved nano Black Helix layer is responsible for external electromagnetic and radiofrequency noise protection, which together reduces the negative interaction between the current flowing in the conductor and the insulation.

Connectors

The LightSpeed models received high-quality, hand-selected polymer-composite connectors with pure copper contacts inside. The rhodium-silver coating on the outside of the contacts provides the right connection, which has measurably better electrical parameters than for example gold coating and is more resistant to environmental impacts.

In addition to the high quality of the connectors, the special look is also emphasized by the built-in lighting. The lighting rings of the connectors give the Lightspeed models a unique look.

Lightspeed power cord

The Lightspeed power cord is specifically designed for source devices, preamplifiers, low and medium power integrated amplifiers and AV receivers, and active bookshelf speakers for the audiophile category.

LightSpeed power cord has Balanced dual-core helix structure conductors, 12 AWG total conductive cross-section, separated multi-purpose shielding, and reduced resistance. The Lightspeed model has the newest inner helix structure, thereby minimizing the inductive and capacitive effects of the parallel construction of the conductors, which negatively affects the alternating current phase accuracy.

The Lightspeed model features a Balanced dual-core Helix structure, 126 discrete solid conductors, and a total of 12 AWG total conductive cross-sections to provide balanced and continuous power to the connected devices.

Lightspeed 3D power cord

The Lightspeed 3D power cord is the middle level of the series, designed specifically for source devices, preamplifiers, medium and higher power integrated amplifiers, tube amplifiers, AV receivers, projectors, active speakers and subwoofers for the audiophile category.

Lightspeed 3D has full separate Balanced quad-core helix structure conductors, 9 AWG total conductive cross-section, separated multi-purpose shielding, and reduced resistance. The appearance of the Lightspeed 3D model has the 3D braid structure, which ensures asymmetrical transverse positioning, thereby minimizing the inductive and capacitive effects of the parallel construction of the conductors, which negatively affects the alternating current phase accuracy.

The increased cross-section Balanced quad-core helix conductors are covered with special anti-static film, tin-plated, dense woven pure copper shielding, synthetic polymer insulation, and a special high-density polyester damping outer casing. The high-density polyester layer has a dielectric constant lower than the often used Teflon insulation and provides adequate protection against vibrations from the environment.

The Lightspeed 3D model features a Balanced quad-core Helix structure, 222 discrete solid conductors, and a total of 9 AWG total conductive cross-sections to provide balanced and continuous power to the connected devices.

Lightspeed 4D power cord

The LightSpeed 4D is the flagship of the series, designed specifically for the high category, high-power audio devices.

LightSpeed 4D has full separate Balanced dual quad-core structure conductors, 6 AWG total conductive cross-section, separated multi-purpose shielding, and reduced resistance. The appearance of the LightSpeed 4D model has the newest 4D braid structure, which ensures full-symmetrical transverse positioning, thereby minimizing the inductive and capacitive effects of the parallel construction of the conductors, which negatively affects the alternating current phase accuracy.

The increased cross-section Balanced dual quad-core conductors are covered with special anti-static film, tin-plated, dense woven pure copper shielding, synthetic polymer insulation, and a special high-density polyester damping outer casing. The high-density polyester layer has a dielectric constant lower than the often used Teflon insulation and provides adequate protection against vibrations from the environment.

The Lightspeed 4D model features a Balanced dual quad-core Helix structure, 414 discrete solid conductors, and a total of 6 AWG total conductive cross-sections to provide balanced and continuous power to the connected devices.
