You are viewing a listing for a current production Audioquest model VDM-5 directional digital interconnect cable. It is terminated with silver BNC on the source end and silver RC on the pre-processor end. This cable was connected in my system only a few months ago and was not moved after that except to repackage back into the original box. There is some slight darkening to the outside of the silver ends but the cable is otherwise unmarked and shows little, if any, signs of wear. I will ship in the original box with cable end sleeves and then double boxed. Asking price includes worldwide shipping via USPS Priority Mail, insurance and PayPal fees. I will accept only PayPal as payment. Thanks for looking!
SOLID 100% PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER CONDUCTORS (PSS): Perfect-Surface Technology applied to extreme-purity silver provides unprecedented clarity and dynamic contrast. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver minimizes distortion caused by the grain boundaries which exist within any metal conductor, nearly eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers.
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.
100% SHIELD COVERAGE (FOIL + SILVER-PLATED BRAID): Shielding always plays an important role in any cable design, but the shield on coax interconnect plays an especially important role because it functions not only as a shield but a return path as well. Because of this, AudioQuest pays special attention to the shield’s metal quality and the fabrication techniques as both will effect the sound and the picture.
CARBON-BASED 2-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. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground plane.
