Audioquest Carbon Coaxial

The Audioquest Carbon Coax is high-performance award-winning digital coaxial cable at a very reasonable price. Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion.

Audioquest Carbon Coaxial

The Audioquest Carbon Coax is high-performance award-winning digital coaxial cable at a very reasonable price.

HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION
Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Hard-Cell Foam Insulation is similar to the Foamed-PE used in our more affordable Bridges & Falls cables, and is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. Because nitrogen (like air) does not absorb energy and therefore does not release any energy from or into the conductor, distortion is reduced. In addition, the stiffness of the material allows the cable’s conductors to maintain a stable relationship along the cable’s full length, producing a stable impedance character and further minimizing distortion.
SOLID 5% SILVER CONDUCTORS IMPROVE ANALOG PERFORMANCE
Solid conductors eliminate inter-strand distortion, one of the biggest sources of distortion in cables.
CARBON-BASED 5-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS)
It’s easy to accomplish 100% shield coverage. Preventing captured Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from modulating the equipment’s ground reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation System (NDS). Traditional shield systems typically absorb and then drain noise/RF energy to component ground, modulating and distorting the critical “reference” ground plane, which in turn causes a distortion of the signal. NDS’s alternating layers of metal and carbon-loaded synthetics “shield the shield,” absorbing and reflecting most of this noise/RF energy before it reaches the layer attached to ground.
FOIL + SILVER-PLATED BRAID SHIELD
COLD-WELDED, HANGING-SILVER DIRECTLY OVER PURE PURPLE COPPER TERMINATIONS

AudioQuest Digital Coax cables are designed to minimize distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. For many applications, the speed of digital communication is important. Most visibly, “speed” is about transferring large files as quickly as possible, or carrying enough data for HD video. For Digital Coax audio “speed” is critical not because of how-much how-fast, but because time relationships within a digital stream are critical to the reconstruction of the analog waveform that brings information, music and joy to our ears. Time-based damage (jitter) to this information within the data package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D, harsh and foggy instead of smooth and clear.

    I had originally thought of buying an Audioquest Coffee coaxial cable to connect my Creek Evolution 100 CD player to a Hegel H120 integrated amplifier, to replace an existing optical cable. Richard advised that an AQ Carbon coax would provide around 90% of the performance of the AQ Coffee coax but at roughly a third of the price, so it seemed a no-brainer. Around the same time I had purchased a new Hegel H390 from Audiologica, again after taking Richard’s advice, and tested both the coax and optical connectors: needless to say the AQ coax won hands down. Thanks Richard for providing sound (pardon the pun) advice on both acquisitions. Since installing these new components I have experienced some truly outstanding if not mesmerising musical performances from both vinyl and CD sources running through a pair of Harbeth M30.2 speakers.

    AQ Carbon digital coax cable – great transaction from Richard. Excellent comms, regular updates, friendly and professional service. The cable was well packaged; it’s a step up from the AQ Cinnamon. No hesitation in buying from Richard again. Thanks!
