Do no harm!
Cable design is all about damage control. No cable can make your system sound or look better, they can only cause damage to the original signal. That’s whu AudioQuest’s perspective has always been to design cables that DO NO HARM!
It’s an unavoidable fact of life that every component and cable in a system causes distortion, changing the overall character of the signal. These aberrations add up, like layers of dirty glass between you and an image you are trying to see. Better cables, and for that matter better components, cannot improve the signals they carry … they can only do less harm to those signals and reduce the amount of noise and distortion introduced into a system, thus improving performance. The goal of high quality components and cables is to be like cleaner panes of glass — to minimize any alteration or distortion of the signal.
Some of the most fundamental distortion mechanisms are honored and addressed by AudioQuest’s 4-Elements. Any improvement in these areas of design and materials results in less damage to the signal:
Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands is one of the greatest sources of distortion in normal cables. Separate solid conductors prevent interaction between strands.
Conductor material quality has a pronounced effect on the signal passing through. Different materials have more or less impurities, grain boundaries, surface irregularities, etc.
The relationship between conductors, whether of the same polarity (+ & +) or opposite polarity (+ & -) af- fects many electrical and mechanical parameters, in- cluding capacitance, inductance, RF Interference, etc.
In addition to insulating, all conductor coatings are also a “dielectric.” Signal flow is slowed down and distorted by a dielectric, making the choice of material, and AQ’s Dielectric-Bias System, very important.
