AudioQuest Tower 2ph-2ph 5m
For many years Audioquest has advocated solid-core rather than multi-strand cables. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in conventional cables can cause distortion, giving an unnatural edge to the sound. Using long-grain copper with fewer impurities, the Audioquest Tower gives a cleaner, clearer sound compared to regular cables using oxygen-free high-conductivity copper.
Air-filled foamed polyethylene insulation
Wire insulation can cause an imperfect signal by absorbing energy and then releasing it as distortion. The Tower uses air-filled foamed-polyethylene, as air absorbs next to no energy and polyethylene is low-loss with a benign distortion profile. The result is reduced distortion for an even purer sound.
Cold-welded, gold-plated plugs
By using a high pressure weld rather than solder, there's less chance of a faulty connection between cable and plug. This gives a more reliable connection in the long term and ensures low resistance and, hence, low distortion connection for the entire life of the cable.
This might be the entry level Audioquest interconnect but the quality sound the brand is renowned for is still there - and then some!
