AudioQuest Cougar Tonearm Cable
AudioQuest is one of the most well-regarded cable manufacturers in the world, with each cable seeing a level of meticulous detail in both its aesthetic construction, as well as intuitive engineering within to provide an impressive performance. Regardless of whether the cable in question be an analogue or digital interconnect, speaker cable, subwoofer cable or anything with Audioquest's badge on it - only the finest quality materials and construction expertise is used to form an exceptional, industry-leading product.
Audioquest's range of analogue tonearm cables are designed to further improve the quality of transmission from vinyl to hifi, utilising only the finest materials and innovative construction methods. The Cougar is a testament to this design philosophy and construction ethic, using the best possible materials for the price point to allow for a truly superior signal transfer from the source.
SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS:
Perfect-Surface Copper, as can be assumed by the name, features a truly smooth and pure surface, thanks to the proprietary metal processing technology used in its construction. This technology protects the surface of the the wire at every step of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity, low-oxide copper is kept soft, pure and smooth - it forms a truly superlative conductor, with absolute minimal distortion. Conventional interconnect cables often struggle with electrical and magnetic interaction between stands, which tends to be the greatest source of unwanted audio distortion, usually resulting in a dirty or harsh sound. These quality conductors and refusal to compromise are what make AudioQuest's cables so exemplary. The PSC+ conductors undergo the same process as the PSC ones, but instead comprises of a truly ultra-pure copper for the best possible signal transmission.
When a solid material adjoins a conductor, it actually exists as an element within an imperfect circuit. The insulation of the wire and the materials that make up the circuit board all absorb energy, which equates to loss. Some of this energy is stored within the component and then released as distortion. This AudioQuest cable attempts to counteract this unwanted effect by using specialised air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on both conductors. Air absorbs next to zero energy, while Polyethylene as a material is low-loss and has no harmful effect with distortion.
CARBON-BASED 3-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS):
This cable also benefits from the innovative Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System, often shortned easily to NDS. Poor quality cables that use minimal shielding techniques can often act as aerials for parasitic RF frequency interference, passing these signals through your system and effecting the sound of your music. AudioQuest believe that 100% shield coverage is simple. Using their Noise-Dissipation System, RF interference is captured and prevented from modifying the electronic component's ground reference. NDS simply prevents a significantly large amount of potential RFI from ever reaching the equipment's ground plane, whether that piece of equipment be hifi-based, home cinema or otherwise. AudioQuest ensure that this cable is truly protected from these interferences by using both metal and carbon-loaded synthetics in 3-layer design, preventing most RFI from ever reaching the ground plane of the electrical component.
