Audioquest's Sky with 72V DBS (Pair)
Interconnects by Audioquest
Our pricing for this product is the "MAP Pricing." This means that the prices shown here are the "minimum advertised prices" permitted by the manufacturer. Because these are already the lowest prices possible, the additional incentives usually available under "Frequent Flyer" program do not apply to this item.
PSS CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries which exist within any metal conductor, eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to all other conducting materials.
FEP AIR-TUBES: Air is the best insulation because it does not absorb and later release energy. FEP is the best extrudable solid insulation because it absorbs less than other materials. The large FEP Air-Tubes used in Sky have almost nothing but air around the PSS conductors.
DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (patent pending): Greatly improved performance is made possible by a constant 72 volt charge on all Sky's insulation. As 72 volts is far above the voltage of an audio signal, the result is considerably more transparency and dynamics than possible even from a cable in continuous use, with equipment that is never turned off. Because DBS battery packs are attached when Sky cables are assembled, Sky does not require an additional run-in period. Because there is no "load"on the two standard hardware-store batteries, they will last for years. A test button and LED allow for occasional verification of battery performance.
TRIPLE BALANCED: The 3 conductors in "Triple Balanced" Sky cable insure that whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally low distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior audio conductor.
WELDED PLUGS: 8,000 amps is used to weld RCA plugs to Sky, creating a perfect connection alloy where the cable and plug meet. A thick direct-silver plating provides the best possible connection.
