Product Highlights

    Constructed Of The Finest Metals

    Enjoy audio that's pure and distortion free when you incorporate the AudioQuest Earth XLR Audio Interconnects to your home theater or sound system. A pair of 1.5m (5 ft) Audio Interconnects with XLR plugs, the Elements Series – Earth from AudioQuest features Solid Perfect–Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors increases clarity and prevents distortion caused by strand interaction and grain boundaries. The Dielectric–Bias system (DBS) creates an electrostatic field that's both strong and stable, polarizing insulation molecules to reduce dielectric induced signal smearing, while carbon–based 6–layer noise–dissipation (NDS) reduces RFI contamination of the equipment ground plane. FEP air–tubes, triple–balanced geometry and cold–welded, hanging–silver plating over high–purity red copper plugs all work together to ensure you hear sound from a "black" background that's distortion and noise free.

    Audioquest Earth XLR Audio Interconnect

    Consider this simple fact: Even the smallest flowers crack concrete. It's enough to make one wonder what might happen if the Earth were freed from humankind's influence and simply left to its own devices–to regenerate, blossom, and grow wild. What wonders might spring from its soil? Scientists speculate that it would take only a century or two to wipe away the plants, crops, and animal species so carefully fashioned by humankind's industrious hand. In a few thousand years, the world might look exactly as it did before humanity came along: a wilderness. Take, for instance, New York City, considered by many the greatest city on Earth. Without humankind's interference, the repeated thawing and freezing of spring and winter would, within a decade, shatter the city's cement skin, allowing water to seep deep into the fertile ground below. Cracks would widen, deepen, and provide the soil from which exotic plant species, such as New York's prolific Chinese ailanthus tree, would grow. Within as little as five years, ailanthus roots would heave up the sidewalks and course through the sewers, while native Virginia creeper and poison ivy would adorn the city's skyscrapers. Within two decades, the water–soaked steel columns that support the street above the city's vast subway tunnels would give way, quickly transforming Lexington Avenue into a mighty river. Coyotes would find shelter in Central Park, to be soon followed by deer, bears, and wolves. Large oak trees would cover the land, while hawks and falcons would soar through the skies. But let's not forget: We are also a product of Earth's rich soil, sharing even the most majestic creature's ability to strengthen, diversify, and cultivate the land; to create a world fit for work and play, where we can share happiness and nurture life. Indeed, Earth is a reservoir of such life, a treasure chest overflowing with the elements–the rocks, metals, clay, and other ingredients–with which we build our villages and cities, our most modest shelters and most breathtaking monuments: the skyscrapers that part the highest clouds, tunnels that connect the farthest lands, and bridges that cross the widest rivers. That the smallest flower can display as much strength as the tallest skyscraper is not an indictment against humanity. Instead, it is a testament to humankind's vast potential: to engineer a beauty rivaled only by Earth's natural magnificence.

    Solid Perfect–Surface Copper+ (PSC+) Conductors

    Solid conductors prevent both strand–to–strand contacts and magnetic interaction, major sources of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail–guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure surface of all AudioQuest's Perfect–Surface metals nearly eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to all other premium coppers. The extreme purity of PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.

    Dielectric–Bias System

    Creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This dramatically reduces dielectric induced smearing of the signal, letting sound emerge from a "black" background.

    Carbon–Based 6–Layer Noise–Dissipation (NDS)

    Shields–the–shield, reducing RFI contamination of the equipment ground plane.

    FEP Air–Tubes

    Almost no contact between conductors and insulation reduces smearing and preserves dynamics.

    Triple–Balanced Geometry

    Proper ground–reference conductor prevents using the shield as an inferior ground–reference conductor.

    Directions

    Because all drawn metal is directional, all audio cables are directional. AudioQuest analog and digital audio cables are all controlled for correct directionality. For the best sound, please use the cable with the arrows pointing from source to receiver or component.
