ASYMMETRICAL DOUBLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY
Asymmetrical Double-Balanced Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience.
SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER (PSC) CONDUCTORS
Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving a very clean, natural sound.
METAL-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION
Noise-Dissipation "shields the shield," absorbing and reflecting most of this noise/RF energy before it reaches the layer attached to ground.
COLD-WELDED, GOLD-PLATED TERMINATIONS
Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal used can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.
FOAMED-POLYETHYLENE INSULATION
Foamed-PE, with its high air content, causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.

AudioQuest Golden Gate 3.5mm to 3.5mm Analog Audio Interconnect Cable

  • Metal: Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC)
  • Geometry: Asymmetrical Double-Balanced (Lower Impedance on Ground, Same Quality + & – Conductors)
  • Insulation: Foamed-Polyethylene
  • Noise-Dissipation System: Metal-Layer NDS
  • Jacket: Black/Red Braid
  • Terminations: Cold-Welded, Gold-Plated RCA

AudioQuest Golden Gate Analog Interconnects with 3.5mm terminations offer upgraded metal conductors over the Evergreen cables. Here are some of the other techniques and technologies that make Golden Gate an outstanding yet affordable performer:

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 conductor. PSC clearly outperforms previous AQ metals that cost over ten times as much. 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 Golden Gate’s very clean sound.

FOAMED-POLYETHYLENE INSULATION: Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Evergreen uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on both 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.

METAL-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. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground plane.

ASYMMETRICAL DOUBLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: Purpose designed for single-ended applications, Asymmetrical Double-Balanced Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance.

COLD-WELDED GOLD-PLATED RCA PLUGS: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.
