Product Highlights

    Interderence Blocking For Supurb Sound

    It's time to get closer to nature with the Forest Digital Coax cable from AudioQuest. 1.5m (5ft) of solid 0.5% silver conductors eliminate distortion caused by strands touching, with hard–cell foam insulation, nitrogen injected foam, designed to keep conductors in place from end to end. Foil and tinned braid provides 100% shield coverage and a proper return path for uninhibited sound, while a metal–layer noise–dissipation system blocks RF interference from reaching the ground plane of your equipment. Sometimes getting lost in the forest is a good thing.

Details from AudioQuest


    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 0.5% 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 & Tinned 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.

    Metal–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. Noise–Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.
