AudioQuest announced that it now offers 5 low-distortion USB digital interconnects specifically made for all of Apple’s iOS devices.
According to the company, AudioQuest’s USB cables minimize distortion (primarily timing errors) by incorporating a variety of design techniques, superior materials, and high-precision construction. Solid conductors completely eliminate strand interaction distortion. As all audio cables, analog and digital, are sensitive to metal’s drawing direction, the signal-carrying conductors are controlled for directionality.
“Forest” uses solid Long-Grain Copper conductors, “Cinnamon” introduces the cost-effective performance advantages of precision silver-plating, “Carbon” quadruples the amount of silver to 5 percent and introduces silver-plated contacts, “Coffee” further doubles the silver to 10 percent and employs AQ’s patented Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) with its proven ability to reduce insulation-induced timing errors. Finally, “Diamond” includes every beneficial feature and technique in the AudioQuest arsenal, including using the 100 percent Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) for its signal conductors.
All of AudioQuest’s Made for iPod USB digital interconnects are available now in lengths from 0.7 meters to 5 meters. Prices start with Forest at $29/0.75m ($35/1.5m), and culminate with Diamond at $549/0.75M ($695/1.5m).
