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.
Yosemite is the penultimate analogue interconnect within AudioQuest's critically acclaimed Rivers & Bridges series.
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.
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 3-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 3-layer design, preventing most RFI from ever reaching the ground plane of the electrical component.
ASYMMETRICAL DOUBLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY:
This cable benefits from AudioQuests asymmetrical double-balanced geometry, a technology that was purpose-engineered for single-ended applications. This cable geometry gives a comparatively low impedance level on the ground, resulting in a richer and more dynamic listening experience. Other single-ended cables on the market may use a single path for both ground and shield, but Double-Balanced designed isolate the two elements for a clearer and less muddy performance on the whole.
COLD-WELDED, DIRECT-SILVER PLATED PURE RED COPPER:
AudioQuest refuse to compromise on quality and always ensure that only the finest materials and technological construction methods are achieved at every price-point. Because of this meticulous attention to detail, even the plug-design has been carefully thought out to guarantee the best possible signal transfer. This cold-welded design doesn't use solder, which is regarded as a common source of distortion while the ground shells are pressed instead of machines, meaning that the metal used is chosen not because of how easy is to machine - but simply because it's low-distortion in nature. Using Red Copper results in a cleaner and more detailed sound than nickel-plated or OFHC metals that can usually be found in cable models from alternative manufacturers, while silver is generally regarded to be the best electrical conductor. Direct-Silver Plating means that quality is assured from either end of the signal transfer.
