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 Wind interconnect features a plethora of AQ technologies that allow it for a truly seamless signal transfer between your hifi or home cinema components. Available in a variety of lengths and in either RCA or XLR configurations depending on your preference of unbalanced or balanced.

SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER:

This cable utilises a truly superlative conductor design, dubbed 'Perfect Surface Technology'. This technology is applied to extreme-purity silver to offer an unrivalled signal transfer quality and further improved with the use of truly solid conductors. Solid conductors prevent wire strands from interacting with each other and compromising the integrity of the signal, while the high purity, perfect surface silver keeps distortion to an absolute minimum. This is a superior signal transfer to that found with OFHC, OCC, 8N and other copper conductors.

TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY:

This cable features a unique conductor configuration known as 'Triple-Balanced'. This means that when used in either an RCA or XLR application, the positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths. The shield gives 100% coverage while never being used as a lesser conductor, ensuring the integrity of the signal being passed through the interconnect itself.

POLYETHYLENE FEP AIR-TUBE 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 benefits from the company's FEB Air-Tube insulation in order to counteract this unwanted effect. Air absorbs next to zero energy, while FEP (a Fluoro-Polymer) is the best material for solid insulation as it absorbs far less energy than other materials. These FEP Air Tubes have practically nothing but air around the conductors, so the signal is untampered with in this respect, for the entirety of its transmission through the cable.

CARBON-BASED 6-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS):

This cable also benefits from the innovative Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System, often shortened 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 6-layer design, preventing most RFI from ever reaching the ground plane of the electrical component.

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.
