Pangea Audio's AC-9SE has been upgraded as the new model AC-9SE Signature Edition MkII to include premium Cardas Grade One Copper in its conductors. AC-9SE MkII is the AC power cable of choice, for getting the highest level of performance from hi-fi and home theater amplifiers, powered subwoofers, and other high current AV components.
Despite its name, the AC-9SE MkII isn't, in fact, a nine-gauge cable. It's actually a seven-gauge cable, which means it's even heftier than the nine-gauge! (The lower the gauge, the thicker the cable.) This difference is especially noticeable in the bass, where the AC-9SE MkII truly excels.
This 7-awg design with its advanced combination of Cardas Grade One Copper conductors, OFC copper conductors, and Litz wire conductors offers a substantial upgrade compared to the already excellent AC-9 MkII. Furthermore, the AC9-SE MkII contains several times the amount of Cardas Grade One Copper than is used in the AC-9 MkII, and this makes a significant sonic difference.
Founded in 2010, Pangea Audio, LLC is an American-based company dedicated to providing premium audio products and accessories.

Pangea Audio products are currently in use by more than 100,000 audiophiles and music lovers in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and dozens of other countries.
Cardas Grade One Copper – The Finest Copper Available
Any cable is ultimately only as good as its conductor, and AC-9SE MkII uses a combination of 99.99% purity OFC copper, Litz wire, and – most important of all – Cardas Grade One Copper, which George Cardas of Cardas Audio developed for his own premium cables.
George’s copper is mined in Arizona, then shipped to a New England factory where it is very S-L-O-W-L-Y drawn into conductors in a process that includes reduction annealing between steps to further purify and meld the copper into what George Cardas calls the most amazing audio conductor he has ever experienced.
Triple-shielded to Screen Out Electrical Noise
Just like a fine audio cable needs to be shielded to screen out stray airborne noise, Pangea's AC-9SE MkII AC power cable is shielded, too. In fact, it's triple shielded for maximum effectiveness. This shielding helps make sure that the two main sources of noise that are in the air don't get into the power signal and degrade your sound and picture quality: RFI (radio frequency interference) and EMI (electromagnetic interference), which are emitted by appliances, computer gear, wireless phones, and other components in your home.
Seven-Way Multi-Gauge Geometry
The AC-9SE MkII uses different wire gauges consisting of a combination of Cardas Grade One Copper, OFC copper, and Litz wire copper conductors. Counter-spiraled conductors offer superior noise rejection. The large-diameter 7-awg construction boasts seven-way multi-gauge geometry optimized for high-current delivery of AC power.
Solid-blade 24k Gold-plated AC Contacts
Standard power cables use thin blades (or prongs) to plug into your AC outlet. Not AC-9 SE MkII. It uses solid-blade 24k gold-plated copper AC contacts. These thick, solid blades plug in firmly to your AC outlet to provide superior electrical contact. And a good, solid connection is critical to getting top performance from your gear.
DeathGrip IEC Connector Stays FIRMLY Plugged Into Your Component
One weak link in the power chain that is often overlooked is the IEC connector. We found a good one for our Pangea cables with large contacts that grip firmly. Then Jay Victor discovered another IEC connector with massive gold-plated contacts that gripped a component's IEC more firmly than anything he had ever seen.
