About the AudioQuest Red River

A cable that does nothing — in a good way

For more than 30 years, AudioQuest has been creating high-performance audio cables that add nothing — no noise, no distortion — to the original signal. Their Red River RCA cable employs high-tech materials and smart design choices that essentially let it get out of the way, so you only hear what the artist intended. 

A cable that does nothing — in a good way

For more than 30 years, AudioQuest has been creating high-performance audio cables that add nothing — no noise, no distortion — to the original signal. Their Red River RCA cable employs high-tech materials and smart design choices that essentially let it get out of the way, so you only hear what the artist intended. 

Solid Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) conductors

One of the most important materials that goes into an audio cable is the metal used for its conductors — the parts of the cable that actually carry the signal. Red River cables feature conductors made from a material AudioQuest calls "Perfect-Surface Copper." PSC starts with ultra-pure copper, formed into solid (not stranded) conductors with an astonishingly smooth surface. The end result: clean, low-distortion signal transfer for transparent sound.

Advanced cable geometry

While many cables use a single path for both the ground and shield, AudioQuest uses a design they call "triple-balanced geometry." This design separates the ground and shield paths for clean, quiet performance.

Cold-welded connectors

Red River's connectors are cold-welded, rather than soldered, which eliminates a common source of distortion found in many audio cables. Instead of solder, the process employs a high-pressure technique. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal used can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.

Features

Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Red River's solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.

Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam Insulation: Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. "Hard" foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.

Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS): 100% shield coverage is easy; preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.

Triple-Balanced Geometry: The three conductors in "Triple-Balanced" Red River RCA cables ensure that the positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior conductor.

Cold-Welded Gold-Plated Plugs: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion.

Directional: Arrows on the connectors indicate the preferred signal path from the source component to the input.
