High-Definition Digital Audio Cable

Diamond USB features high-purity 100% Silver conductors and Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation for optimal dissipation of radio-frequency noise.

Solid Conductors

Solid conductors prevent strand-interaction, a major source of dynamic distortion in cables.

Perfect-Surface Silver Metal

AudioQuest's highest-quality metal. Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) minimises distortion caused by grain boundaries and maximises linear RF Noise-Dissipation.

Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation

Alternating layers of metal and carbon-loaded synthetics "shield the shield," minimising RF noise before it reaches the layer attached to ground.

72v DBS Technology

72v Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) saturates and polarises insulation, allowing clear, dynamic sound against a quiet “black” background.

Hard-Cell Foam Insulation

Hard-Cell Foam's high air content minimises energy absorption for clearer sound.

Direction Controlled

All conductors controlled for RF-noise directionality.

Solid Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) Conductors

Solid conductors prevent electrical and magnetic strand-interaction. PSS Solid-Silver minimises distortion caused by grain boundaries and maximises linear RF Noise-Dissipation.

Carbon-Based 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation

It's easy to accomplish 100% shield coverage. Preventing captured Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System (NDS). Traditional shield systems typically absorb and then drain noise/RF energy to component ground, modulating and distorting the critical "reference" ground plane, which in turn causes a distortion of the signal. NDS's alternating layers of metal and carbon-loaded synthetics "shield the shield," absorbing and reflecting most of this noise/RF energy before it reaches the layer attached to ground.

72v Dielectric-Bias System (DBS)

All insulation between two or more conductors is also a dielectric whose properties will affect the integrity of the signal. When the dielectric is unbiased, dielectric-involvement (absorption and non-linear release of energy) causes different amounts of time delay (phase shift) for different frequencies and energy levels, which is a real problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. The inclusion of an RF Trap (developed for AudioQuest’s Niagara Series of power products), ensures that radio-frequency noise will not be induced into the signal conductors from the DBS field elements.

Hard-Cell Foam Insulation

Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Hard-Cell Foam Insulation is similar to the Foamed-PE used in our more affordable Bridges & Falls cables, and is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. Because nitrogen (like air) does not absorb energy and therefore does not release any energy from or into the conductor, distortion is reduced. In addition, the stiffness of the material allows the cable's conductors to maintain a stable relationship along the cable's full length, producing a stable impedance character and further minimising distortion.

Direction-Controlled Conductors

All drawn metal strands or conductors have a non-symmetrical, and therefore directional, grain structure. AudioQuest controls the resulting RF impedance variation so that noise is drained away from where it will cause distortion. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio cable. When applicable, arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality. For most models of AQ cable, the arrows not only indicate the direction that optimises metal-directionality as part of Noise-Dissipation, but also indicates non-symmetrical attachment of shield and GND in order to optimise full-system performance. A fundamental aspect of AudioQuest's multifaceted Noise-Dissipation technology, Direction-Controlled Conductors ensure induced noise is dissipated and drained properly.
