Evergreen Series Stereo Audio Minijack Cable: The AudioQuest Evergreen
stereo audio minijack cable is terminated by a gold-plated male 3.5mm stereo
connector on each end. The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo audio minijack cable is
available in the following lengths.
- 0.6 meter (2')
- 1 meter (3' 4")
- 2 meter (6' 7")
- 3 meter (10')
- 5 meter (16' 5")
- 8 meter (26' 3")
- 12 meter (39' 5")
Solid Long-Grain Copper Conductors (LGC): Solid conductors eliminate
strand-interaction distortion. Evergreen'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.
Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation: Any solid material adjacent to a
conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit
board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then
released as distortion. Evergreen uses air-filled 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
Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other
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.
Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry: Purposely designed for
single-ended applications, Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry offers a
relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic
experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the
ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner,
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
Directional: Arrows on the connectors indicate the preferred
signal path from the source component to the input.
Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team. They verify what’s in the box, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
