HAC "SIGNATURE" - "Hi A/C SIGNATURE"
is designed to allow any power hungry component to effortlessly
draw current from your supply. The "SIGNATURE" version has all
HAC features plus extra outer mesh insulation and a premium
gold-over-silver plated custom wall plug and silver-plated IEC
connector. The HAC consists of nine individually TeflonŽ
insulated shielded conductors. HAC cord can handle the demands
of both low and high wattage equipment. This cord has been tested with 1000W monoblocks and worked with
extremely low resistance and no stress.
Source components also benefit from the quality, shielding, and effortless
power draw provided by the HAC.

"ground"; Double Teflon insulation (rated at 1500V continuous) -

The HAC "SIGNATURE" - like all STEALTH AC cords - is
conceptually different from the majority of audiophile cords of
the market. AC power cords' "sound" mostly depends not on the AC
carrying wires, but on the ground wire, which NEEDS to be
shielded since it's included into the sound SIGNAL PATH (ground
path, to be more precise) - that's mostly why different AC power
cords sound differently! AC is filtered in the power supplies,
but the ground goes in and out just the way it is. Therefore, in
general, the better your house ground wiring is, the more
obvious are the HAC "SIGNATURE" sonic advantages. But all the
technical justifications and positive reviews do not matter as much as
the improvement this cord will make on
