Analysis Plus - Pro Power Oval MK II - Power Cable
Analysis Plus new PRO POWER OVAL uses better than hospital grade plugs that have a Perma-Lock Terminals, Large, high spring-rate contacts, Glass filled high temperature nylon front housing, Polycarbonate rear housing, Stainless hardware mated to a true balance cable for lower common mode noise. The cable design has hot and cold leads that are symmetrical with a full shield around the hot and cold conductors to eliminate EMI/EMC. The cable also has the lowest inductance on the market for the lowest noise voltage of any pro power cord.
Why Do You Need the Power Oval?
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 don't 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. I have seen some power cords that are so big and stiff that the CD player connected to them is lifted off the ground.
What Analysis Plus has done is use computer simulation to optimize the design of a power distribution system. What Analysis Plus discovered is that their patented hollow oval design provides a low L cable without having to use stiff and bulky cables. The 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 don't 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 computer simulation and measurements, Analysis Plus found patented hollow oval cables do a great job at this. Analysis Plus has the lowest noise voltage seen with hollow oval designs.
For higher frequencies, silver-plated copper braided shield does a great job. What's used is 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.
