Clarus Cable Aqua Source AC Power Cable
Clarus Aqua audio cables provide the same unique performance features found in their Crimson products, but are designed with slightly smaller wire gauges. Like the Crimson line, Aqua cables feature a multi-gauge design using three different-shaped conductors - each individually insulated - resulting in superior bass, midrange and high frequencies for superior imaging and maximum definition across the sound spectrum. Sound clarity is enhanced through the use of ultra-low-distortion PCOCC conductors. The use of precision-formulated polyethylene (PE) insulation results in low loss, superior imaging and maximum sound definition. No other audiophile-grade cables on the market offer the patented design breakthroughs and sound reproduction of Clarus Aqua.
Clarus Power Cables are designed specifically for maximum noise reduction, to support a 50/60Hz low frequency AC signal and to supply the current demands of audio components without any loss of dynamics. Noise rejection is critical and Clarus Power Cables rely on proprietary winding techniques and triple shielding to limit noise in the building’s grid as well as EMI egress and ingress thus ensuring the lowest noise floor for sensitive source components. Since line and neutral alternate back and forth 60 times per second, vibration isolation is critical, Clarus Power Cables are engineered with a specialized dielectric formula developed specifically to dampen AC vibrational noise.
Current capabilities for power cables are a major concern. Wire gauges must be sufficient so as not to starve this current. When only large conductors are used a cable tends to lose dynamics. To respond quickly to transients and prevent any loss of signal, Clarus Power Cables combines different sizes of large conductors.
For line-level components, such as CD players, DACS, Transports, & preamps, much less current is needed, and additional flexibility is very desirable to aid in installation. For this application, Clarus uses a smaller overall gauge cable but additional shielding is added. These types of components are much more sensitive, and can pick up RF and/or EMI noise easily. The result is an obvious audible improvement created by lowering the noise floor, and allowing you to hear more of the recorded information.
