For sale is a 1 metre pair of interconnects with RCA connectors and 72v DBS.
They originally came with 36vDBS; but I purchased the upgrade kit to raise them to 72v.
The cables are in very good condition with only the slightest wear on the braids, the connectors or the battery packs.
I do not have the original packaging for these but they will be packed well for shipping.
At the time of purchase, these cables were second in the AudioQuest line to the Sky interconnects. They share almost identical designs, with the main differences being: the gauge of the conductors, the size of the air tubes and the RCA connectors.
From the Audioquest brochure:
PSS CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries which exist within any metal conductor, eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to all other conducting materials.
TEFLON AIR-TUBES: Air is the best insulation because it does not absorb and later release energy. Teflon is the best extrudable solid insulation because it absorbs less than other materials. The Teflon Air-Tubes used in Cheetah have almost nothing but air around the PSS conductors.
DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (patent pending): Greatly improved performance is made possible by a constant 36volt charge on all Cheetah’s insulation. As 36 volts is far above the voltage of an audio signal, the result is considerably more transparency and dynamics than possible even from a cable in continuous use, with equipment that is never turned off. Because DBS battery packs are attached when Cheetah cables are assembled, Cheetah does not require an additional run-in period. Because there is no “load” on the single standard hardware-store battery, it will last for years. A test button and LED allow for occasional verification of battery performance.
TRIPLE BALANCED: The 3 conductors in "Triple Balanced" Cheetah cable insure that whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally low distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior audio conductor.
WELDED PLUGS: 8,000 amps is used to weld RCA plugs to Cheetah, creating a perfect connection alloy where the cable and plug meet. A thick direct-silver plating provides the best possible connection.
