AudioQuest - WEL Signature - Digital Coaxial Audio Cable (Single)
AudioQuest's WELSignature Digital Coaxial 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 Coaxial 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 to this information within the data package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D; harsh and foggy instead of smooth and clear.
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 causes different amounts of time delay for different frequencies and energy levels, which is a real problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. The inclusion of an RF Trap, ensures that radio-frequency noise will not be induced into the signal conductors from the DBS field elements.
It's easy to accomplish 100% shield coverage. Preventing captured Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AudioQuest'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.
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 nitrogen-injected to create air pockets, because nitrogen 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 minimizing distortion.
