Ethernet Cat-7 Cable: Ethernet Cat-7 is the ideal cable for fast
internet downloads, multi-player PC games, and movie or music streaming.
AudioQuest's Pearl series Ethernet cable meets or exceeds the highest industry
CAT-7 specifications. This Ethernet cable will deliver speeds up to 10 Gbps and
uses individually shielded pairs to minimize crosstalk.
Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors: Solid conductors eliminate
strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid long-grain copper
conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like Ethernet
audio. These signals, being such a high frequency travel almost exclusively on
the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the
performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much
closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of
manufacturing very high quality Ethernet cables.
Solid-High-Density Polyethylene Insulation: Solid High-Density
Polyethylene Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry while minimizing
insulation-induced phase distortion.
RJ-45 Connectors (Directional): A gold-plated, nickel RJ-45
connector with 100% shield coverage is used on each end of the Ethernet cable.
These gold-plated, nickel connectors maximize signal transfer and resist
corrosion. Arrows are clearly marked on the RJ-45 connectors to ensure
superior sound quality. For best results have the arrow pointing in the
direction of the flow of music. For example, NAS to Router, Router to Network
