AudioQuest Tower Analogue Interconnect
AudioQuest Tower Interconnect Cable
The new entry-level 'Tower' cable from AudioQuest utilises robust Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors, as well as Asymmetrical Double-Balanced Geometry, Foamed-Polyethylene insulation, Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS) and Cold-Welded Gold-Plated RCA plugs. When analysed against the next cable, Evergreen, Tower makes use of slightly smaller conductors to provide a cost-effective performance, whilst retaining the exquisite quality of sound one would expect from an AudioQuest cable.
Available in both RCA and 3.5mm jack configurations.
SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER CONDUCTORS (LGC):
Solid conductors dispose of strand-interaction distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, fewer impurities, fewer grain boundaries, and undeniably better performance.
Any solid material bordering a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials absorb energy (and therefore, lose it). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Tower uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on both conductors because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
METAL-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS):
AudioQuest says that 100% shield coverage is simple. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment’s ground reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground plane.
DOUBLE-BALANCED ASYMMETRICAL GEOMETRY:
Purpose designed for single-ended applications, Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer and more dynamic experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance.
COLD-WELDED GOLD-PLATED RCA PLUGS:
This proprietary, novel plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.
Who is Audioquest?
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.
