Details & Highlights

Product Highlights

    Give your high–quality components the wiring they deserve with the 1.5m (4.92 ft) Coffee Digital Coaxial Cable from AudioQuest features solid 10% silver conductors designed to eliminate distortion and reduce jitter for a clean, clear signal across wide bandwidth. Hard–cell foam insulation is a high–density material that allows conductors to maintain the same relationship to each other along the length of the cable, while a foil and silver–plated braid alongside a carbon–based 6–layer Noise–Dissipation System (NDS), and cold–welded, hanging–silver terminations all work together to deliver the high performance you demand.

    Coffee Digital Coax Audio Cable (1.5m)

    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.

    Solid 10% Silver Conductors

    Solid conductors eliminate strand–interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver–plated conductors are excellent for very high–frequency applications. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high–purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high–quality digital coax cables.

    Hard–Cell Foam Insulation

    Hard–Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed–PE, it is nitrogen injected to create air pockets. 'Hard' foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.

    100% Shield Coverage (Foil + Silver–Plated Braid)

    Shielding always plays an important role in any cable design, but the shield on coax interconnect plays an especially important role because it functions not only as a shield but a return path as well. Because of this, AudioQuest pays special attention to the shield's metal quality and the fabrication techniques as both will affect the sound and the picture.

    72V Dielectric–Bias System

    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 6–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.

    Terminations

    Cold–Welded, Hanging–Silver directly over pure Red Copper.
