Gordon J. Technologies Inc., parent company of Clarus high-fidelity audio cable, power conditioners and digital-to-analog convertors, and its sister company, Tributaries A/V Cables, today announced a series of new, high end audiophile AC Power cables designed to use advanced technology to block out negative, external factors from a high performance music playback system via its electrical connections. 

“An audiophile system is only as good as its weakest link and often in higher end systems, one of the biggest places to improve one’s sound is to deal with AC power problems,” says Joe Perfito, Founder and CEO, Gordon J. Technologies Inc. “Our new Crimson and Aqua AC power cables are the result of us going to extreme measures to find ways to remove any negative effects that noise has on an audiophile-grade system.”

Performance Advantages From Clarus Crimson and Aqua AC Power Cables

The new Clarus Crimson and Aqua power cable designs employ heavy multi-gauge, individually insulated PCCC conductors geometrically arranged in alternating lays and twists to cancel out high-frequency noise residing on the AC line thus reducing distortion. This helps to protect the power cable from extraneous noise generated by the ingress of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), Clarus Cables’ Crimson and Aqua power cable’s conductors are surrounded by heavy shielding consisting of an aluminum foil wrap and a 90 percent silver-plated copper braided shield.

The Clarus Mark II power cable design features new, sophisticated proprietary connectors and termination processes. The Mark II Clarus AC power connector contacts and termination pins are specifically made with C1100 pure copper that has superior electrical and thermal conductivity. During the termination process, the cable’s multi-layered shield is connected to the source connector (NEMA 5-15P) end only thus sending noise to the ground. 

Shielding the signal doesn’t stop at the cable: the Clarus Mark II connector housing is wrapped in a brass shell that is covered in light-weight carbon fiber and sealed with an aluminum collar to further protect from noise getting into the signal path. Termination of the line, neutral and ground wires to the connector contacts involves first preparing the power cable wires by stripping the PE insulation, maintaining the original twist in the conductor and dipping in a high temperature solder pot. 

Clarus Mark II power cables are terminated with proprietary Nema 5-15P male US Type B and female IEC C15 connectors. Since IEC receptacles are notorious for accidental disconnection, Clarus solves this problem with a proprietary high-retention C15 connector. 

At the molded end of the IEC C15 there is a raised collar. Simply insert the plug into an IEC receptacle and, when a “click” is felt, the plug is seated securely for a tight fit and reliable connection.

Clarus Crimson and Aqua Mark II Source and High-Current power cables are custom made to order in Orlando, FL by skilled craftsmen at Gordon J. Gow Technologies headquarters.
