    AudioQuest's Precision Design in an XLR Cable

    Utilizing purple copper, AudioQuest is bringing a cleaner, clearer sound to the Mackenzie 1.5m XLR cables that are sure to be your new favorites. The triple–balanced geometry ensuires that the positive and negative signals each have low–distortion paths. The signal will pass through the Mackenzie cables with extra special care and less RF interference, thanks to the Carbon–Based 3–Layer Noise–DIssipation System. And with the nitrogen–injected hard–cell foam insulation, the conductors are able to maintain their same relationship throughout the length of the cable, thanks to the hard foam adding extra stiffness to the cables. Named for the MacKenzie River that runs through Canada, this cable is sure to add an extra air of sophistication while it delivers top–of–the–line audio to whichever setup you choose.

    Rivers Series - Mackenzie (XLR, Pair, 1.5m)

    Originally named Disappointment for dashing Alexander Mackenzie’s hope that it would lead to the Pacific rather than the Arctic Ocean, the Mackenzie River is Canada’s largest, longest river system. Traversing 2,635 miles, it flows through a vast network of lakes, boreal forests and arctic tundra. Mackenzie’s many tributaries cover portions of three provinces—British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan—and two territories, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. Known as "The Amazon of the North," Mackenzie’s sparsely populated basin remains one of the great unspoiled natural areas in the world.

    Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) Conductors

    Perfect-Surface Copper+ has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire’s surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion PSC+ conductor. PSC+ is manufactured by applying the same exceptional technology to an ultra-pure copper. The resulting sound quality is even more focused and simply less in the way. For over 30 years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by the huge leap in performance made possible with Perfect-Surface Technology. PSC+ simply outperforms all previously available copper metals at any price. All of Mackenzie’s conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat dirty, harsh sound. Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Mackenzie’s very clean sound.

    Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam Insulation

    Nitrogen-Injected 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.

    Carbon-Based 3-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.
