AudioQuest VDM-A coaxial digital cable

Written By Mbrown, Tennessee on Sunday, February 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was directed to this cable by reviews. they chose this cable as their winner. I have read their reviews on other items that I have purchased and never have been steered in the wrong direction. This cable supersedes anything I have tried in the past, and I have tried too many to even remember. The sound coming through this cable is just simply awesome. You may have to spend a little more money but you really get what you pay for.

Pros: Very well balanced EQ with great signal strength. You'll have to turn your receiver down some.

Cons: None

I was about to order a different product, but the customer service rep led me to this one. It turns out to be the perfect one for my application.

It works!

I bought a DAC a couple of weeks ago and I "borrowed" the AudioQuest VDM-X cable from my home theater system to connect the new DAC to my stereo system. I bought the AudioQuest VDM-A cable to work with my home theater. Both cables work very well.

Pros: It is a cable that works.

Cons: None

Product Research


VDM-A Series: AudioQuest/CinemaQuest VDM Series cables are designed to minimize distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. This 75Ω cable acts like a conduit which has to carry relatively low frequency analog video. The VDM-A series cables are designed to carry all these signals with minimum interference from the cable.

Construction: The VDM-A uses a solid 26 AWG, 1.25% silver plated long grain copper center conductor insulated with Hard Cell Foam (HCF). Silver-plating greatly improves high frequency performance. Nitrogen-injected HCF reduces distortion caused by the insulating material and helps maintain a stable 75Ω. The combination braid and foil shield provides 100% protection coverage and lowers distortion. Gold-plated RCA connectors are professionally attached with superior AudioQuest solder.
