SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER (PSS) CONDUCTORS
Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. While less perfectly processed silver can have the same irritating tweeter-in-your-face sound as silver-plated strands, PSS Silver’s smooth surface, extraordinarily careful processing, and high purity, deliver sound as smooth and beautiful as our PSC+ Copper, but with significantly higher resolution.
Dielectric – bias system
Creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This dramatically reduces dielectric induced smearing of the signal, letting sound emerge from a “black” background.
Carbon – based 8-layer noice dissipation (NDS)
Shields-the-shield, reducing RFI contamination of the equipment ground plane.
FEP Air-tubes (FEP is a fluoro – polymer)
Almost no contact between conductors and insulation reduces smearing and preserves dynamics.
Triple – balanced geometry
Proper ground-reference conductor prevents using the shield as an inferior ground-reference conductor.
Because all drawn metal is directional, all audio cables are directional. AudioQuest analog and digital audio cables are all controlled for correct directionality. Please use the cable with the arrows pointing from source to receiver or component.
