AudioQuest: Invest in the best

Don't be fooled by the hype about specially-designed digital audio cable either it's a proper audio cable or it isn't. And since AudioQuest has perfected audio/video cable technology, trust that they know what "proper" is. You may ask what makes AudioQuest cables that much more superior? Well, let me tell you. These cables are babied. They're coddled. Each cable's hand is held from its conception in Bill Low's head until it is carefully swaddled in product packaging and shipped off to your home.

Silver: The superior conductor

AudioQuest's mission is to provide a cable for every audio/video need as well as a price for every pocketbook, without sacrificing one iota of performance quality. And they've certainly achieved high-performance status with the VDM1. The VDM1 has twice the content of silver (2.5-percent) as the VDMXR, which basically means that AudioQuest took the path of least resistance and paved it. What's the difference between silver-plated copper and pure copper? Well, let's take a step back and explain that pure silver is the very best performing material for audio, video or digital, but it's very expensive. So the engineers came up with a more cost-effective solution silver-plated copper. Don't make assumptions though: high-quality silver-plated copper, when used in video, RF or digital applications, becomes an extraordinary value, allowing for much higher performance even in small quantities.

Keep your signals clean

AudioQuest's VDM Series cables are designed to minimize distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. A 75? cable acts as a conduit which carries relatively low frequency analog video (up to 4.2MHz), super sensitive digital audio (up to 24.576 MHz), uncompressed High Definition video (up to 750 MHz), or cable TV/broadband (up to 1 GHz). Keeping true to AudioQuest's vision, the VDM cable is designed to carry all these signals with minimum interference from the cable.

Damage controllet's compare apples. . .

It's important to know that an audio or video signal cannot be improved upon it's as good as it's going to get once it leaves your amp, DVD player, whatever component you're running. So why bother with a high-end cable? Simple: the signal can't be improved, but it can be damaged. Significantly. A lesser-quality cable leaves your signal wide-open to instabilities. A lesser-quality cable is constructed of bundled, twisted strands of conductive materialup to 200 to 2000 strands per bundle. And as the signal wants to travel the path of least resistance (down the outside of the bundle), all those twisted strands inhibit the signal. They draw the signal from the outside of the bundle to the inside, where it fights to get back to the outside again. What's the result? Distortion. Lost data. Poor sound quality.

. . .to oranges

AudioQuest, on the other hand, engineers their cables with the highest quality, perfectly gauged solid-core, copper and silver conductors. And each conductor strand is slowly and precisely loomed, not twisted, into the final cable bundle and it's important to note that the maximum amount of strands AudioQuest has used in their longest cable, for flexibility requirements, is 32 (that's a few less than 200, and a lot less than 2000). Once they have constructed the conductor, AudioQuest wraps it in the dielectric (a fancy word for the insulating material) to keep the cable at peak performance levels at all times by absorbing as little energy as possible in order to avoid the reintroduction of energy (distortion) back into the conductor.

AudioQuest makes sure you're headed in the right direction

Cables, from hardware store electrical cable to the finest pure silver cables, have a direction much like wood has a grain. It has to do with molecular structure, which we won't get into. What you should know though is that a cable sounds much better when the signal is traveling in the proper direction. AudioQuest audio cables are marked for direction, so you don't have to figure it out.

The bottom line

What AudioQuest is doing is engineering cables with conductors that have all the proper attributes, for decreased distortion. They've arranged the conductors so the signal travels down a straight path, for decreased distortion. They've wrapped the conductor metal in a non-conductive material, to decrease distortion. The result is an astonishingly pure, very stable signal. Starting to make sense? AudioQuest loathes distortion. You'll love AudioQuest.
