Pangea Audio AC 14SE MKII Signature power cable. Pangea Audio's AC-14SE MkII is the ultimate affordable high end AC power cable for source components. This fourteen gauge cable uses three conductor groups consisting of a combination of solid and Litz conductors. The large-gauge center conductor is made of solid Cardas Grade One Copper. Surrounding this conductor are six cores consisting of one medium-gauge solid OFC copper conductor, which in turn is surrounded by six Litz conductors.
The net effect of Jay Victor's patented design is that every conductor is individually insulated. The braided shield is made of silver-plated copper for lower noise.
The new MkII version goes a substantial step further, upgrading to no-compromise Cardas Grade One Copper, which George Cardas of Cardas Audio developed for his own premium cables.
George’s copper is mined in Arizona, then shipped to a New England factory where it is very S-L-O-W-L-Y drawn into conductors in a process that includes reduction annealing between steps to further purify and meld the copper into what George calls "the most amazing audio conductor I have ever experienced. It is quite simply the best copper on the planet."
