From The Manufacturer's Website:
AudioQuest Digital Coax cables are designed to minimize
distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. For many applications, the speed
of digital communication is important. Most visibly, “speed” is about
transferring large files as quickly as possible, or carrying enough data for HD
video. For Digital Coax audio “speed” is critical not because of how-much
how-fast, but because time relationships within a digital stream are critical
to the reconstruction of the analog waveform that brings information, music and
joy to our ears. Time-based damage (jitter) to this information within the data
package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D, harsh and foggy instead
of smooth and clear.
SOLID 10% SILVER-CONDUCTORS
Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and
reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very
high-frequency applications. 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 digital coax cables.
HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION
Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair
geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an
imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb
energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion.
Hard-Cell Foam Insulation is similar to the Foamed-PE used in our more
affordable Bridges & Falls cables, and is nitrogen-injected to create air
pockets. Because nitrogen (like air) does not absorb energy and therefore does
not release any energy from or into the conductor, distortion is reduced. In
addition, the stiffness of the material allows the cable's conductors to
maintain a stable relationship along the cable's full length, producing a
stable impedance character and further minimizing distortion.
CARBON-BASED 6-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS)
It's easy to accomplish 100% shield coverage. Preventing
captured Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from modulating the equipment's
ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System (NDS). Traditional
shield systems typically absorb and then drain noise/RF energy to component
ground, modulating and distorting the critical "reference" ground
plane, which in turn causes a distortion of the signal. NDS's alternating
layers of metal and carbon-loaded synthetics "shield the shield,"
absorbing and reflecting most of this noise/RF energy before it reaches the
layer attached to ground.
SILVER-PLATED BRAID SHIELD
72 Volt DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM
All insulation between two or more conductors is also a
dielectric whose properties will affect the integrity of the signal. When the
dielectric is unbiased, dielectric-involvement (absorption and non-linear
release of energy) causes different amounts of time delay (phase shift) for
different frequencies and energy levels, which is a real problem for very
time-sensitive multi-octave audio. The inclusion of an RF Trap (developed for
AudioQuest’s Niagara Series of power products), ensures that radio frequency
noise will not be induced into the signal conductors from the DBS field elements.
