AudioQuest Rocket Series Bulk Spool Cables – Rocket 44 Bulk
Rocket 44 speaker cables use a carefully finessed combination of Solid Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) and Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+). Its solid conductors elimante harshness and confusion due to strand interaction. The Double-Star Quad construction allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel. Rocket 44 is an exceptional Single-BiWire cable and a maximum performance Double-BiWire in a single cable. Rocket 44 is controlled for correct directionality.
Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+)/Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) Conductors
This cable uses a carefully finessed combination of Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) and extremely high purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors. The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. Extremely high-purity PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.
Double 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 reasonably neutral balance, the particular geometric relationship between conductors greatly affects the sound. Star-Quad geometry is not only vastly superior to conductors run in parallel, but also to the same conductors as two twisted pairs.
Carbon-Based Noise- and Crosstalk-Dissipation System
This cable’s negative conductors are covered with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material reduces radio-frequency garbage being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in “hash” and improved dimensionality that comes whenever RF interference is reduced in an audio circuit. In addition, a carbon layer damps interaction between positive and negative conductors, and an external Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation System reduces external interference.
Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation (For All Positive Conductors)
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. This cable, however, uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on both conductors. Because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile, Foamed-PE, with its high air content, causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
