Our take on the AudioQuest YIQ-A
Component video connections can deliver gorgeous high-definition pictures, and are definitely the way to go if HDMI isn't an option for your setup. Component video provides a significantly better picture than other analog connections, like composite or S-video. Its greater color bandwidth results in clearer color reproduction with less bleeding. You can rely on AudioQuest's YIQ-A to deliver sharp detail and accurate, lifelike colors from your video source.
The solid copper conductors are plated with silver for improved signal transfer. Hard cell foam insulation surrounds the conductors to minimize distortion. Foil wrap around the insulation and an additional layer of braiding shield the cable from external electronic interference that can degrade the signal.
Note: Each component video connection kit consists of three separate video cables.
- length: 3 meters (9.8 ft.)
- 26-gauge silver-plated solid copper conductor (silver layer is 1.25% of total conductor)
- nitrogen-injected hard cell foam insulation
- gold-plated RCA contacts
- black/gray striped PVC jacket
- warranty: 5 years
- Our 60-day money-back guarantee

YIQ Series Component Video Cables: AudioQuest YIQ
component video cables include three identical maximum performance coaxial
cables, one for each of the three component signals; the "Y" (b&w) signal and
the "I" and "Q" signals (also known as Pb and Pr), which contain all the color
information. In the two channel S-video system (also known as Y/C), the "I" and
"Q" component signals are combined to create a single "C" signal. When
available, a three channel component signal is better because it avoids the
degradation caused by the process of combining and separating.
Construction: YIQ-A uses a solid Silver-Plated
center conductor (26AWG) insulated with Hard Cell Foam (HCF). Silver-plating
greatly improves high frequency performance for a fraction of the cost of solid
silver. Nitrogen Injected HCF reduces distortion caused by the insulating
material, and helps maintain a stable 75-ohms. The combination foil and braid
shield provides 100% protection coverage. Gold-Plated RCA connectors are
professionally attached with superior AudioQuest solder.
