With a quick glance, you might think this is their regular Silver Series AC cord. But this is their Updated version which is basically a “refreshed” design that now includes two cylinders that are attached to two of the three cable lines running between the two ends. These cylinders act as resonant couplers which helps keep in check the conductor’s natural resonating frequency so that it won’t adversely affect the audio signals travelling through it. The AC cord has a bit more “sparkle” to the non-updated version so it is better suited to components where you want to get a bit more detail and sparkle. Cable has the same 10awg solid core conductors (into three individual runs) that are sealed over with silver. Cable can be a bit stiff due to its thick solid core design but once you maneuver it into place, its all smooth sailing from there.
Cosmetically, the cable looks great. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. Cable will be securely packed for safe shipping.
