For sale is a brand new 85 foot length Audioquest Cat700 Carbon ethernet cable with Telegartner male connectors. This was a custom order placed with Audioquest through my local dealer for a project that sadly did not pan out. My loss is your gain.
Info from AQ:
Even generic Ethernet cable offers audio performance that’s clearly
superior to the fastest, most robust wireless networked-audio
system. Moving beyond the limitations of wireless, the specific cable
matters, too. AudioQuest offers multiple CAT600 (Cat6) and CAT700
(Cat7) bulk Ethernet cables for whole-house “electronic plumbing,”
as well as prepared RJ/E Ethernet cables. While Cat6/CAT600 cables
support network speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps), Cat7/
CAT700 cables support network speeds up to 10 Gbps at 100 meters
length. AudioQuest’s CAT700 and RJ/E prepared Ethernet cables are
all built on a Cat7 foundation, the highest Cat standard.
CAT700 Pearl uses Hard-Cell Foam insulation because the stiffness of the material
allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same geometric
relationship along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the
characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent. CAT700 Forest
and CAT700 Carbon off er all of the same benefits as CAT700 Pearl,
but upgrade from Pearl’s Solid Long-Grain Copper conductors with
Solid 0.5% Silver and Solid 5% Silver conductors, respectively.
In addition to AudioQuest’s hallmark materials and techniques, the
top Ethernet models feature extreme-performance Telegärtner
RJ45 connectors, which employ a patented combination of geometry
and circuitry to minimize impedance-mismatch distortion.
The improvement in performance is slap-in-the-ears obvious and
indicative of the difference all connectors and materials make.
