AudioQuest designed their VDM-1 coaxial digital cable for use with high-performance CD players, digital-to-analog converters, and signal processors. The cable features a solid 24-gauge copper conductor, engineered specifically for the wide frequency bandwidth of digital audio signals.
The conductor's 2.5% silver plating helps improves high frequency performance. Hard cell foam insulation surrounds the conductor to minimize distortion. Foil wrap around the insulation and an additional layer of silver-plated braid shield the cable from external electronic interference that can degrade the signal.
