JPS Labs Digital AC-X 2.0m (6.6ft) Power Cord – $399 US Retail. This is our favorite cable for digital applications (unless you have a lot more money to spend). The JPS Labs Digital AC-X is an excellent cable for any digital based component, more “analog environment” for audio and video. Uniquely engineered specifically for the elimination of digital based noise, it very effectively eliminates what we call ‘ digititis ‘, the harshness and background noise present and very difficult to remove in all digital sources. Most all of today’s devices that plug into a wall outlet act as noise sources creating an invisible shower of high frequency energy causing today’s sophisticated electronics to error and perform well below their capabilities. Even the finest audio and video component’s generate noise, limiting themselves of fine detail and resolution.
Using advanced RF engineering, the Digital AC-X effectively ISOLATES and ABSORBS any noise within the cord itself for over a 100 fold decrease, allowing any quality digital component to provide amazingly real inner detail and resolution while offering smoother sound and video. The Digital AC-X is a proven universal winner for over 14 years running. It’s forward thinking design increases effectiveness proportionately to noise frequencies, and offers universal improvement on any quality digital based lower power equipment including CD, Blu-Ray, SACD, or DVD player, DAC, transport, or PC/computer server. It also allows for a more lifelike picture when used with a projector, DVD player, flat screen TV’s, or any other digital based quality video component which will accept a detachable AC cord.
THE DIGITAL AC-X will also keep other components clean on the same circuit, and when used on a computer or music server will contain all of that processor noise within the cord. Because of that, you can effectively think of the JPS Digital AC-X as a power conditioner packaged in the from of a power cord!
I’m excited to say we’ve updated the world’s most unique and oldest model AC cord (since 1998), and it’s a simple name change to The Digital AC-X’ , the ‘X’ for the number 10 in 2010. About a year ago the filter networks were redesigned with the latest generation passive components capable of handling even higher offending frequencies now and in the future. The cords still provide over 40 db of noise absorption, and sonically have a bit more clarity than the older models. If you or your customers have purchased Digital AC’s within the last year or so, they already contain the upgrade and we’re now calling it something, with the promise of higher performance going forward as sampling frequencies and speeds continue to increase.
