Stereophile Review, October 2013

Stereophile Review, October 2013

"With Golden Gates in the system, our attention took a decided turn away from aspects of the sound and toward aspects of the performance. We were now better able to appreciate subtle but significant nuances."

Good cable design is key to quality audio reproduction. Underneath the red and black braid Audioquest Golden Gate contains AQ's unique solid long-grain copper conductors and a 100% coverage foil shield for an excellent interference and distortion-free signal transfer. The step up in construction to Solid Perfect Surface Copper should see subtle, yet definitive details appearing in music performance. Yet another impeccable interconnect by AQ!

Golden Gate also features foamed-polyethylene insulation, cold-welded gold-plated plugs and a Metal-Layer Noise Dissipation System for a more commanding sound. Using this 3.5mm male Jack to female socket cable is a great way to extend headphones up to a longer length.

 

AudioQuest Golden Gate Features

Solid Perfect-Surface Copper Conductors

Solid Perfect-Surface Copper 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. For over 30 years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by this huge leap in performance. 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.

AudioQuest Noise-Dissipation System

AudioQuest Noise-Dissipation System

Noise, in the form of RF energy, is the mortal enemy of good sound. Our environment is more contaminated with RF than ever before due to the huge proliferation of RF radiating devices like computers and mobile phones. Traditionally, RF energy is routed to ground through the use of a 'shield" consisting of either a braided metal or foil. This 'draining' of RF to ground causes a modulation of the ground plane, which in turn causes a form of signal modulation. AudioQuest's Noise-Dissipation System greatly reduces the effect of this modulation. Metal, used in a passive manner, acts as a method of dissipating and reducing the incoming RF. The result is dramatically less modulation of the signal, less distortion and better sound.

Cold-Weld System

Cold-Weld System

Making the perfect connection between conductor and connector is not a simple process. There are three accepted ways to make the connection between a cable and its termination. Solder is by far the most common method of connection. Resistance welding is clearly superior to even the best solder. However, just as solder introduces an inferior layer of differing material, causing distortion and reflections, so does welding. The alloy created at the interface of cable and plug is far superior to solder, but it is still an undesirable intermediary layer. After so much attention to the quality of the conductor and connector, the contact system deserves just as much consideration. AudioQuest's Cold-Weld System solves this problem with a superior connection that insures that the structural integrity of the conductor is kept completely intact. The Cold-Weld System refers to a combination of high pressure at the point of contact and the use of silver impregnated paste.

Foamed Polyethylene Insulation

Foamed Polyethylene Insulation

AudioQuest Tower's polyethylene insulation, foamed to include as much 'air' as possible, provides superior clarity and dynamics. By keeping the positive and negative conductors separate, offers the greatest stability for cable geometry resulting in a fantastically clean sound.
