- 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.
- Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper.
Tower All cables in AudioQuest's Bridges Falls Series place their left and right channels in a single jacket and feature Asymmetrical Double-Balanced geometry with separate high-quality positive and negative conductors. This design allows for a thin flexible and uniquely versatile high-performance cable that can be terminated with a variety of todays connections including 3.5mm (male or female) DIN and RCA. In Bridges Falls youll find better metals and more sophisticated technologies including Air-Tube insulation Dielectric-Bias System and Noise-Dissipation System at lower prices than ever before. Do keep in mind however that by necessity the plugs on Bridges Falls cables are fairly close together. If the L and R inputs of your components are more than 3 (7.6cm) apart please consider models from the Rivers or Elements Series. Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Evergreens solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding loss without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material less impurities less grain boundaries and definitively better performance. 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. Tower 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 equipments ground reference requires AQs Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipments 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 Terminations 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.
