No matter how you choose to connect with your music and media, AudioQuest provides a high-quality cable specifically designed for the job. The complete Audioquest line of USB cables includes four models now available with Apple’s® Lightning™ connector (as used on all recent iOS devices). Whether you’re connecting mobile devices to the USB ports common to so many car audio systems or streaming content to a home entertainment system, a high-quality, low-distortion cable is required for sound that is full-bodied, engaging, and three-dimensional. Thin and flat is a great look for an iPhone or iPad®, but it’s not how the music from those marvelous devices should sound!
SOLID 1.25% SILVER CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like USB audio. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality USB cables.
HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest’s video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen injected to create air pockets. ‘Hard’ foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.
METAL-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS): 100% shield coverage is easy. 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.
The US cable manufacturer AudioQuest has always given great attention to loss-free transmission. The company has been one of the largest cable suppliers on the high-end market for years.
