About the AudioQuest Sidewinder

AudioQuest's Sidewinder analog audio cables use high-quality materials and smart design to deliver detailed sound from your high-performance audio components.

AudioQuest's Sidewinder analog audio cables use high-quality materials and smart design to deliver detailed sound from your high-performance audio components.

AudioQuest G-Snake

Each cable features two solid copper conductors to resist electrical and magnetic interference that can add brittleness to the sound. The center conductor is surrounded by a layer of air-filled PE insulation, which absorbs next to no energy and prevents signal loss and distortion. Triple shielding surrounds both conductors, eliminating almost all electronic noise, for the cleanest signal possible.

Sidewinder cables feature precision gold-plated RCA connectors attached with AQ solder for a low-distortion connection. All solder tends to impede the signal, but AudioQuest's special solder blend has been optimized to provide a solid connection and excellent performance.

Features

Conductors: Sidewinder has identical conductors (22 AWG) for the positive and ground connections. Underneath the 100% coverage foil shield is a bare conductor, exactly the same as the insulated center conductor. The conductor under the shield does double duty as a low distortion audio connection, and as the drain wire connecting the shield to ground. Solid conductors are the most important ingredient enabling Sidewinder's very clear sound

Metal: Sidewinder's LGC (Long Grain Copper) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen Free High Conductivity) copper. The "HC" in OFHC means High Conductivity. OFHC is a general metal industry specification as to "loss," without any concern for distortion. LGC, with it's fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities and less grain boundaries, has better performance.

Insulation: Sidewinder uses air filled FPE (Foamed Polyethylene) insulation on both conductors because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in FPE, it cause much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.

Terminations: Precision gold-plate plugs are carefully attached with the very best solder. Through choice of flux and metallurgy, the audioquest solder has been optimized to make a low distortion connection. AQ solder does no have a high silver content because the more silver there is in solder, the more difficult it is to make a good connection.
