Product Highlights

    GO–4

    A step above in the Star–Quad Geometry series, the GO–4 virtously offers professional–grade metals and the inclusion of AudioQuest's unique patented Dielectric–Bias System. These two advancements decidely outperform the Type 4, AudioQuest's most successful speaker cable in their 30+ year history.

    SOLID PERFECT–SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS

    GO–4 uses extremely high–purity Perfect–Surface Copper+ conductors. All conductors are solid, which prevents strand interaction, a major source of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered a rail–guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC+ eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. The superior purity of PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.

    CARBON–BASED NOISE–DISSIPATION and CROSS–TALK–DISSIPATION SYSTEMS (INSULATION)

    The two negative conductors in GO–4 are insulated with partially conductive Carbon–Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio–frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and better dimensionality that comes whenever RF garbage is reduced in an audio circuit. GO–4 uses air–filled Nitrogen–Injected Foamed–Polyethylene Insulation on its positive conductors because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low–loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed–PE, it causes much less of the out–of–focus effect common to other materials.

    STAR–QUAD GEOMETRY

    The relationship between conductors defines a cable's most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly affect the sound. The Star–Quad construction of GO–4 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.

    SPREAD–SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY (SST)

    Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature. SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different size conductors. The different SST–determined conductor sizes used in GO–4 allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.

    DIELECTRIC–BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #s 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1)

    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.

    TERMINATIONS

    AudioQuest offers a wide range of high–quality connectors that allow GO–4 to be securely attached to any type of equipment. Quality is in the low–distortion sound, not necessarily in the eye–candy effect. AQ ends are either a dull looking gold or silver because these metals are plated directly over the connector. There is no shiny and harsh sounding nickel layer underneath. AQ PK–spade lugs are soft because better metal is soft, and facilitates a higher quality connection. For pieces requiring a banana plug or BFA connector the AQ PK–BFA/Banana provides unprecedented performance over conventional brass versions.
