Dynamic Design’s Neutron SW16 Digital power cord wins the prestigious and highly coveted Positive-Feedback 2016 Brutus Award, the highest award that can be bestowed by Positive-Feedback! We are so proud and grateful to the PF Editor-in-Chief, Dr. David Robinson, for the award, it means a lot to us. This award validates our efforts in designing a power cord that profoundly elevates the performance of digital front-ends no matter the pedigree.
Dr. David, in his comments about the Neutron SW16, noted how the Neutron SW16 ascended to the top of the line as the power cord of choice for digital gear in his system.
The Neutron SW16 materials and processes are without peer, pushing it to the pinnacle of digital power cords! With SOTA design and build, the Neutron SW16’s insulation, conductors and, shielding represent a profound advancement from what is available today:
Insulation System: Cable insulation should be terrible conductors of electrical signals; the worse they are as conductors the better the cable performance. Storing and the subsequent releasing of the signal create distortions that adversely affect the performance of a cable. The air impregnated, multi-layer film type insulation system in the Neutron SW16 delivers a charge storage of just a mere 0.3 more than a perfect vacuum. This results in a velocity of propagation of 95% the speed of light, reducing signal smearing to a minimum with superb phase linearity and stunning clarity!
Shielding: The pervasiveness of noise around today’s audio systems demand a full commitment to protecting the audio signal, by designing efficient and effective shields. Mere twisting of conductors regardless of geometries is not adequate to protect from the myriad and complex types of noise bombarding our systems. The Neutron SW16 features a special twisting geometry and multiple shield types that are layered in a proprietary sequence to deliver ultra wide-bandwidth protection well into the gigahertz range. This results in 100% shield coverage, over -95db shielding effectiveness and ultra-fast propagation speed!
Conductors: The Neutron SW16 utilizes massive 99.9999% high purity copper and silver stranded conductors that are specially treated to maximize conductivity and power handling. The conductors are twisted in a complex and intricate array ensuring maximum isolation from crosstalk and reduced coupling capacitance.
