AudioQuest Angel with Mini or RCA Terminations Details
AudioQuest Angel with Mini or RCA Terminations Analog Interconnects
AudioQuest continues to produce high-end, cutting edge cables that produce an unrivaled resolution, crystal clear signal while noticeably reducing digital smearing and distortion. AudioQuest's Angel, the top of the River series, is certainly no exception. Compared to other high-end analog interconnect cables, Angel's price is appealing. AudioQuest Angel features top-of-the-line technology such as the Perfect-Surface Silver conductors, their signature DBS system and solid core conductors. All producing efficiency, clarity and dynamic audio. Like all of AudioQuest's cables, the Angel strives to "Do No Harm" to the original audio signal. So plug-in and immediately experience a noticeably superior, immersive audio experience.
- Solid Perfect-Surface Silver conductors ensure clear signal
- Superior Asymmetrical double-balanced geometry producing dynamic audio
- Features foamed-polyethylene insulation materials to minimize digital smearing and produce crystal clear signals
- Metal-Layer noise dissipation system optimizes signal clarity
Solid 100% Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) Conductors
Perfect-Surface Technology applied to extreme-purity silver provides unprecedented clarity and dynamic contrast. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver minimizes distortion caused by the grain boundaries which exist within any metal conductor, nearly eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers.
FEP Air-Tube Insulation
Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then later released as distortion. All of Angel’s conductors use Air-Tube insulation because air absorbs next to no energy, and FEP is the best extrudable solid insulation and absorbs less energy than other materials. The FEP Air-Tubes used in Angel have almost nothing but air around the solid PSS conductors.
Dielectric-Bias System (DBS)
All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest’s DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur. Sound appears from a surprisingly black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check.
Carbon-Based 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS)
100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment’s ground reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground plane.
Asymmetrical Double-Balanced Geometry
Purpose designed for single-ended applications, Asymmetrical Double-Balanced Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance.
Cold-Welded Direct-Silver Plated Pure Red Copper RCA Plugs
This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability. Red Copper offers a cleaner, clearer sound over nickel-plated or OFHC metals commonly found in competing manufacturers’ plugs. Direct-Silver Plating offers one more important step toward greater clarity and doing no harm to the signal.
