Marshall Nack of Positive-Feedback checks out the new Neutron SW16 Digital power cord in his system. The Neutron SW16 is Dynamic Design’s latest flagship Digital power cord embodying over 17 years of R&D and evolutionary innovation! Marshall was so enamored with the performance of the Neutron SW16 in his system that he proclaimed “The Neutron SW16 is staying put on my CH Precision C1 DAC.” There is no better compliment for the performance of the Neutron SW16 than that! This is no surprise as Marshall use terms like ” having exceptional resolving powers” and “lifelike” to describe the performance of the Neutron SW16 in his system!

The Neutron SW16 concept is a culmination of 17 years of design and evolutionary progress. It builds on the strengths of our previous flagship VLT Nebula DPC and innovations debuted in the Challenger AE15 DPC. The Neutron SW16 represents the ultimate digital power cord in the Heritage series.
Dielectrics: Cable dielectrics should be terrible conductors of electrical signals; the worse they are 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 insulation system in the Neutron SW16 delivers a charge storage of 1.3, just a mere 0.3 more than a perfect vacuum (1.0). This results in a velocity of propagation of 95% the speed of light, reducing signal smearing to a minimum with superb phase linearity!
Shielding: The pervasiveness of noise around today’s audio systems demand a full commitment to protecting the audio signal. Efficient and effective shields, as those in the Neutron SW16, that both reflect and absorb noise mitigates the impact on the audio signal. 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, in addition to our renowned Dynamic Shielding™ technology, features a special twisting geometry and multiple shield types that are layered in a proprietary sequence to deliver ultra wide-bandwidth protection from DC to the gigahertz range. This results in 100% shield coverage and over -95db shielding effectiveness!
Conductors: The massive 99.9999% high purity copper and silver stranded conductors utilized in the Neutron SW16 are specially treated to maximize conductivity and power handling. The complex and intricate geometry of the conductors ensures maximum isolation from crosstalk and reduced coupling capacitance.
