Our take on the AudioQuest VDM-A

by Kristen Schaub
AudioQuest
AudioQuest VDM-A

AudioQuest designed their VDM-A coaxial digital cable to minimize distortion across a wide bandwidth, perfect for use with high-performance CD and DVD players, A/V receivers, digital-to-analog converters, and signal processors. The cable features a solid, long grain copper center conductor with silver plating to improve high frequency performance. Foil wrap around the insulation and an additional layer of braiding shield the cable from external electronic interference that can degrade the signal.

Highlights:

  • 3 meters (9.9 ft.)
  • designed for use with coaxial digital audio or composite video connections
  • wide bandwidth, low-loss design
  • silver-plated 26-gauge long grain copper conductor (silver layer is 1.25% of total conductor)
  • hard cell foam insulation
  • double shielding (foil and braid) minimizes interference
  • gold-plated RCA connectors to resist corrosion
  • black striped PVC cover
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

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.

It works!

Written By FlyFish77, Wheeling, IL on Wednesday, April 02, 2014
 
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
