Our take on the AudioQuest Evergreen

by James Ralston
AudioQuest

AudioQuest believes good cable design is all about damage control. In AQ's view, the perfect cable would be one that adds nothing — no noise, no distortion — to the original signal. Even AudioQuest's affordable Evergreen cables embody this philosophy. They bring together some of AQ's most advanced designs and materials, for excellent sound quality from a cable that's relatively thin and lightweight.

Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors

One of the most important materials that goes into an audio cable is the metal used for its conductors — the parts of the cable that actually carry the signal. Unlike lesser cables, AudioQuest's Evergreen features conductors made from solid Long-Grain Copper rather than stranded metal, for improved performance and better transparency.

Advanced cable geometry

While many cables use a single path for both the ground and shield, AudioQuest uses a design they call "double-balanced asymmetrical geometry." This design separates the ground and shield paths for clean, quiet performance.

Cold-welded, gold-plated connectors

All the details of the cable's construction are well thought-out. For instance, the Evergreen's connectors are cold-welded, rather than soldered, which eliminates a common source of distortion found in many other audio cables.

This cable is equipped with stereo mini (3.5mm) connectors at each end. Stereo RCA and mini-to-RCA versions are also available.

Highlights:

  • length: 1 meter/3.3 feet
  • stereo cable with a male miniplug connector at each end (3.5mm)
  • solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors help improve performance
  • foamed polyethylene insulation for low distortion
  • metal-layer NDS (Noise Dissipation System) shields against RF interference
  • double-balanced asymmetrical cable geometry separates the ground and shield for quieter performance
  • green and black striped PVC jacket
  • cold-welded, gold-plated mini plugs feature a solder-less design for lower distortion
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Evergreen Series Stereo Audio Minijack Cable: The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo audio minijack cable is terminated by a gold-plated male 3.5mm stereo connector on each end. The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo audio minijack cable is available in the following lengths.

  • 0.6 meter (2')
  • 1 meter (3' 4")
  • 2 meter (6' 7")
  • 3 meter (10')
  • 5 meter (16' 5")
  • 8 meter (26' 3")
  • 12 meter (39' 5")

Solid Long-Grain Copper Conductors (LGC): Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Evergreen's 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. 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.

Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry: Purposely designed for single-ended applications, Double-Balanced Asymmetrical 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 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.

Directional: Arrows on the connectors indicate the preferred signal path from the source component to the input.

Nicely made

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very well made and substantial product. I am using it between an iMAC and a pair of PSB PS1 speakers. Without the ability to perform a rapid A/B comparison test I cannot say definitively that this cable improves the sound.
Pros:
Appears very well made.
Cons:
None I can find.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you have a high powered system, you need shielded cables to avoid that annoying hum at loud levels. Well, this is that.

Nice sound improvemet over my standard cable!

Written By SixFeetDeep, Tinley Park, IL on Friday, January 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Some people would call me crazy for spending $29 on a cable to hook up my Samsung Galaxy S3 or my I-Pad Mini to my Jawbone Jambox.. I mean the standard cable that comes with the Jambox does what it's supposed to. But after owning a FoxL Platinum speaker which comes with this cable, I had to have another one! This new cable brings to my ears a broader sound spectrum. Everything is cleaner & richer than it was before. It certainly isn't their top of the line, but this is a nice step up for sure! For the better sound, the price is well worth it to me. I give the cable 5 stars, however there is 1 downfall if you use an OtterBox Defender Series case.......
Pros:
Outstanding quality from AudioQuest. Decent price. Typical Crutchfield manner of outstanding customer service & quick shipping.
Cons:
What I found out is that if you are using an OtterBox Defender series on your Samsung Galaxy S3, I-Pad Mini or Big I-Pad, this cable will NOT work. You will have to take your device out of the OtterBox in order to use it. That is a hassle, but the sound quality is worth it. Besides, every now & then it's good to take the OtterBox off to clean the screeen of the device inside. The case lets dust in from time to time & it was time to clean it lol.
