VDM-XR Series: AudioQuest/CinemaQuest VDM-XR Series cables are
designed to minimize distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. The 75Ω
cable acts like a conduit which has to carry relatively low frequency analog
video (Composite, up to 4.2MHz), or super sensitive digital audio (SP/DIF, up to
24.576 MHz), or uncompressed High Definition video (HDTV, up to 750 MHz), or
cable TV/broadband (CATV, up to 1 GHz). The VDM series cables are designed to
carry all these signals with minimum interference from the cable.
Construction: The VDM-XR uses a 24 AWG, Silver-Plated 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 75-ohm. The combination foil
and Silver-Plated braid shield provides 100% protection coverage and lower
distortion. Gold-Plated RCA plugs are professionally attached with superior
When using the VDM-XR cable for digital audio, please be sure to observe
the directional arrows (input or output arrow on each connector). Video is not
sensitive to directionality.
Nylon Jacket: The AudioQuest/CinemaQuest VDM-XR Series cable features a
multi-color nylon braided flexible jacket.
