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.
THE DEFINITION OF VDM: AudioQuest/CinemaQuest VDM Series cables are designed to minimize distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. A 75? cable is like a conduit which has to carry relatively low frequency analog video (Composite, up to 4.2MHz), or super sensitive digital audio (SP/DIF, up to 24.576 MHz), or uncompressed High Definition video (HDTV, up to 750 MHz), or cable TV/broadband (CATV, up to 1 GHz). AQ/CQ VDM (preterminated cables) and VSD (bulk installation cables) cables are designed to carry all these signals with minimum interference from the cable.
THE INGREDIENTS: VDM-5 uses a Solid Silver (Perfect-Surface Silver) center conductor insulated with Hard Cell Foam (HCF). Normal 1.25% silver-plate greatly improves high frequency performance for a fraction of the cost of Solid Silver. 2.5% and 6.1% silver conductors allow much higher performance. However, Solid Silver made using Perfect-Surface technology is the clear answer to "How good can it get?"Nitrogen-Injected HCF reduces distortion caused by the insulating material. The combination conductive PVC and Silver-Plated braid shield provides 100% protection coverage and lower distortion. Silver-Plated RCA plugs are welded to VDM-5 with 8,000 amps, commingling the molecules for an ideal connection.
