Imagine you're drawing water from a tap the size of a pencil. The amount of water drawn will be limited to that of the tap's size. Now imagine the tap is the size of a water bottle. You will sustain considerably more water than previously. The same concept applies to power cables when comparing the current flow between a standard thin power cable and the AudioQuest Monsoon Power Cable.
The Monsoon Power Cable's performance resembles that of its name. With an impressive 18mm outside diameter, the Monsoon Power Cable has a tremendous capacity for current flow. This makes it perfect for providing extensive current to your equipment for increased dynamics and detail.
When connected to our power amplifier here at Future Shop, we personally noticed an increase in dynamic range with a lower noise floor. Connected to our CD player, we noticed an improvement in the clarity of sound reproduction.
All in all, the AudioQuest Monsoon Power Cable is perfect for those looking to improve their listening experience with a wider dynamic range, lowered noise floor, and greater clarity.
GND-TECH (GROUND-NOISE DISSIPATION)
AC Ground wires provide protection from current-wiring faults, but they also act as antennas. Thus, they are subject to induced radio-frequency (RF) noise. This RF noise bypasses component power supplies and is typically coupled directly into a system’s most sensitive audio/video circuits. AudioQuest’s patented Ground-Noise Dissipation (GND) greatly reduces this distortion, yielding unprecedented levels of noise dissipation across the widest bandwidth (range) of radio frequencies possible. Our unique circuit topology utilizes a common-mode phase-cancelling array, in concert with proprietary dielectric materials which provide additional differential linear filtering.

HIGH-PURITY TRUE-CONCENTRIC PSC+ & LGC CONDUCTORS
With only Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) on the outside, Monsoon’s conductors are essentially all PSC+ even though the conductor core is Long-Grain Copper (LGC). Both superior metal and conductor geometry greatly reduce ear-fatiguing Transient Intermodulation (TIM) Distortion.
All drawn metal strands or conductors have a non-symmetrical, and therefore directional, grain structure. AudioQuest controls the resulting RF impedance variation so that noise is drained away from where it will cause distortion. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio cable. When applicable, arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality. For most models of AQ cable, the arrows not only indicate the direction that optimizes metal-directionality as part of Noise-Dissipation, but also indicates non-symmetrical attachment of shield and GND in order to optimize full-system performance.
UNCOMPRESSED HIGH CURRENT TRANSFER
While many AC power cables feature low DC resistance in order to accommodate the demand for high current, a cable’s characteristic impedance is also crucial for optimal performance. Unlike most AC cables that constrict or compress an audio-provoked transient, AudioQuest AC cables combine low DC resistance and ZERO (no) characteristic impedance in order to deliver uncompressed high-current transients on demand.
