The new Red Dawn power cable offers a greatly improved performance over the stock power cables supplied with most AV equipment. The cable is UL approved and designed for use with all two channel and multichannel AV components
as well as video projectors and televisions. Unlike conventional power cables that use thick insulation, which impedes current flow and slows transient response, the new, heavier gauge, Red Dawn cable offers improved transient response better power transfer and increased thermal efficiency.
Nordost asserts that by drawing a twisted FEP Mono-filament thread around the conductor in a helix pattern, insulation contact with the conductors is reduced by more than 80%.
Extruded FEP insulation has very low signal loss and a high thermal efficiency- meaning it will dissipate heat quickly. This allows greater power to be transferred more efficiently.
The Red Dawn power cord uses three Flexible, Multi-Strand 99.9999 oxygen free, copper 14 AWG conductors to ensure increased power transfer and optimum performance.
Each power cord is handcrafted at the Nordost factory in Holliston Massachusetts using high quality gold plated connectors. Wrapped in a red, medical grade jacket, the power cables use high-grade IEC connectors with triple gold plated Oxygen Free Copper.
The Red Dawn power cord is shipping now and is priced at $349.99/1 meter length (additional half meter increments are $75.00.)
