Brand new AudioQuest Mackenzie RCA to RCA Cable - Available in a 0.75m length at a reduced price
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 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 the 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.
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.
NITROGEN-INJECTED HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION:
AudioQuest uses 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 mean 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 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 affecting the sound of your music. AudioQuest believes 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 is hifi-based, home cinema or otherwise. AudioQuest ensures 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.
COLD-WELDED HANGING-SILVER DIRECTLY OVER PURE PURPLE COPPER 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 is able to choose the metal construction based on sound quality, rather than how easy is to the 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 results are a pure signal transfer and an exemplary sound quality.
