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.

Type 4 is factory prepared by AudioQuest to your specification. Part of their Star-Quad series. 

SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS:

Using solid conductors ensures that potential distortion caused by conductor strands is completely eliminated. This means that the cable is able to offer a much smoother and more detailed sound response than lesser cables that use OFHC copper. OFHC stands for 'Oxygen Free High Conductivity', but this acronym is slightly misleading as the term is a general metal specification that does not take distortion into consideration as being 'loss'. Long-Grain Copper however has fewer oxides within the conducting material, reduced grain boundaries and as a result; a superior performance in audio.

STAR-QUAD GEOMETRY:

The relationship between conductors truly defines the most basic electrical values of any cable, namely the capacitance and inductance. The issue is that even when these variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the way the conductors talk to each other may be varied in ways that greatly effect the sound of the signal being transmitted through it. AudioQuest have developed the StarQuad cable geometry in order to improve this relationship between conductors, resulting in a dramatically better dynamic contrast and information pass-through than if the conductors were simply run in parallel.

FOAMED-POLYETHYLENE INSULATION:

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 NOISE-DISSIPATION
and
CROSS-TALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEMS (INSULATION):

This cable features two negative conductors that AudioQuest have partially insulated with conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This superlative material has the extraordinary ability to dampen radio-frequency interference from being fed back into the system's amplifier. This has a positive effect on the overall sound response in the same way that it does when reducing RF in an audio circuit; better dimensionality and clearer sound across the board. This cable further enhances the signal transfer by using air-filled, Nitrogen-Injected Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on the positive conductors. This is done because air absorbs practically zero energy, while polyethylene has a benign distortion profile.
