SOLD PER FOOT
This cable is sold by foot so you will have to enter number of feet you need in the order quantity field above.
The 4-Series of AudioQuest speakers cables may be the most successful in AudioQuest’s 30+ year history. Type 2′s roots go all the way back to the late 80′s…
SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS: Type 2’s Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding “loss” without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance. All four of Type 2’s conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the single greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat harsh, dirty and confused sound. Solid conductors are the most important ingredients enabling Type 2’s very clear sound. Whether a conductor is solid or stranded, skin-effect is a prime distortion mechanism in speaker cables. Type 2 very simply keeps this effect out of the audio range by using conductor sizes that are below the threshold for audible distortion.
STAR-QUAD GEOMETRY: The relationship between conductors defines a cable’s most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly affect the sound. The Star-Quad construction of Type 2 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.
