Our take on the AudioQuest Rockefeller

by Steve Kindig
AudioQuest
AudioQuest Rockefeller

Hear your speakers sound their best

AudioQuest's Rockefeller speaker cables can help high-performance audio systems sound their very best. Rockefeller closely resembles AQ's Rocket 88 cables, but Rockefeller's larger overall gauge results in a greater dynamic presentation. AudioQuest cables are known for their ability to deliver smooth, engaging sound that never sacrifices a bit of detail. The company's goal is simple: to transfer signals as faithfully as possible. AQ's secret recipe combines innovative design, top-quality materials, and lots and lots of careful listening.

The metal matters

One of the most important ingredients in a high-quality cable is the metal used for the signal conductors. Rockefeller uses a carefully optimized combination of AudioQuest's Perfect-Surface Copper and their even-higher-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+. The metal mix is dominated by PSC+, which significantly reduces harshness while increasing clarity. Each of the cable's eight solid conductors is a single unbroken length of pure copper, to minimize signal loss.

AudioQuest's patented Dielectric-Bias System

If you've noticed that when you turn on your audio system it takes a while to really hit its stride sonically, there are a couple reasons. Certainly allowing your electronics to warm up helps, but another factor may lie in your speaker cables. When your system is playing, a charge builds up in the cable's insulation, reducing the amount of electronic noise the cable produces. This charge can dissipate when the cable's not in use, limiting performance slightly until it builds up again.

AudioQuest's active Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. A small battery pack attached to the cable produces a constant 72-volt charge, which helps to minimize energy storage in the insulation, giving you clear, expressive sound from your system every time you turn it on. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check.

High-quality connectors eliminate the weakest link

Rockefeller cables feature banana plugs fastened by cold welding — a process that uses extremely high pressure to create solid, secure connections that minimize signal loss. By contrast, solder tends to impede the signal, and heating the copper can negatively affect its conductivity.

Highlights:

  • 10-foot pair of speaker cables with pre-attached banana plugs
  • eight solid copper conductors per cable, each made of a combination of Perfect-Surface Copper and Perfect-Surface Copper+
  • battery-powered active Dielectric-Bias System maintains a constant 72V charge for more consistent cable performance (batteries included)
  • silver-plated copper banana plugs
  • textile braid jacket
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
