AudioQuest Rocket 33
Center channel speaker cable with pre-attached banana plugs (10 ft.)
Our take on the AudioQuest Rocket 33 by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
If you're using Rocket 33 cables for your main right and left speakers, it only makes makes sense to use it for your center channel, too. This single non-bi-wire cable is just what you need.
Solid conductors improve accuracy and clarity
Each of the cable's six conductors is a single, unbroken strand of pure copper, which ensures highly efficient signal transfer with minimal loss. Solid conductors eliminate electrical and magnetic interference that can add brittleness to the sound of multi-strand conductor cables.
Precise cable geometry
The Rocket 33 uses a precise combination of different size conductors: 21-, 19-, and 17-gauge conductors for the high-frequency signal, and 20-, 18-, and 16-gauge conductors for the low-frequency signal (see more photos). This difference in diameter reduces the possibility of distortion caused by any particular conductor's sonic "signature." A specialized spiral arrangement of the three conductors in each bundle minimizes potential signal interaction, resulting in sound that's clearer and more dynamic.

AudioQuest Rocket 33 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Long-Grain Copper/Perfect-Surface Copper: Rocket 33 uses a combination of Long-Grain Copper (LGC) and high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC). All conductors are solid to prevent strand interaction, a major source of distortion.
Double Star-Quad Geometry: The relationship between conductors defines a cable's most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly affect the sound. The Double Star-Quad construction of Rocket 33 cables results in better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than the same conductors run in parallel.
Spread-Spectrum Technology (SST): Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature. SST is a method of reducing the awareness of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different sized conductors. The three different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Rocket 33 cables allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.
