Overview

Our take on the AudioQuest G-Snake

AudioQuest's G-Snake analog audio cables use a combination of quality materials and thoughtful design to transfer signals with minimal noise and signal loss.

AudioQuest's G-Snake analog audio cables use a combination of quality materials and thoughtful design to transfer signals with minimal noise and signal loss.

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 PVC insulation, which prevents information smearing and keeps the sound natural. Triple shielding surrounds both conductors, eliminating almost all electronic noise, for the cleanest signal possible.

G-Snake 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.

Snug fit, flexible, noticeable improvement in images.

Features

Conductors: G-Snake has identical conductors 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.

Metal: G-Snake's LGC (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.

Insulation: The PVC used in G-Snake has too much loss to be used in a quality video cable, but it has a very benign distortion profile through the audio range, keeping G-Snake's sound pleasant and natural.

Terminations: Precision gold plated plugs are carefully attached with the very best solder. Through choice of flux and metallurgy, audioquest solder has been optimized to make a low distortion connection. AQ Solder does not have a high silver content because the more silver there is in solder, the more difficult it is to make a good connection.
