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.
SOLID SILVER CONDUCTORS (100%):
Solid conductors ensure that the cable doesn't suffer from distortion that would arise from the conductor strands interacting with each other, while also reducing jitter. Solid silver is suited brilliantly for very high-frequency applications; these frequencies travel almost entirely along the surface of the conductor and as silver is generally regarded to be the best conductor metal, the result is a fast and dynamic signal transfer.
NITROGEN-INJECTED HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION:
AudioQuest use a specialised Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell foam insulation for this cable. It's similar in nature to Foamed-PE, but it is nitrogen-injected to form air pockets. 'Hard' foam is used because the rigidity and stiffness means that the cable's conductors are able to maintain a partnership with each other for the full length of the interconnect. This results in a consistent impedance and an outstanding sound quality.
CARBON-BASED 7-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS), WITH 3 X EMI ABSORPTION:
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 4-layer design, preventing most RFI from ever reaching the ground plane of the electrical component. This cable benefits from 2 EMI absorption components, in addition to the high quality NDS, making electro-magnetic interference essentially non-existent.
COLD-WELDED HANGING-SILVER DIRECTLY OVER PURE REDCOPPER PLUGS:
Solder is known to be a common source of distortion within interconnect, AudioQuest counter this using a cold-welded design. This plug configuration does not use solder in its construction. Because the shells of the cable are pressed instead of machined, AudioQuest are able to choose the metal construction based on sound quality, rather than how easy is to machine. Purple copper provides a far cleaner and clearer sound than can be achieved with nickel-plated or OFHC metals typically found in other branded cable plugs. This outstanding quality is further improved by the use of hanging silver, as silver is regarded to be one of the best electrical conductors available. The result is a pure signal transfer and an exemplary sound quality. This result is further enhanced by the use of RED copper, which is superior in quality and connectivity than lesser metals.
COPPER FOIL + 100% PSS-SILVER SPIRAL:
Proper shielding is always an important element in cable design but even more-so in digital interconnects. This is because the shielding not only acts as a shield from environmental interferences, but it also functions as a return path. Because of this, AudioQuest have meticulously integrated the highest quality metal at each price-point, using the best available materials and construction techniques for each cable's shielding. This cable uses a high-conducting Copper Foil and innovativ 100% PSS-Silver spiral shielding design for a no-compromise signal transfer.
