Overview

Our take on the AudioQuest Mackenzie XLR

Named after Canada's longest river, AudioQuest's beautifully built Mackenzie interconnects offer long-term listening enjoyment. Each cable features three solid copper conductors to virtually eliminate electrical and magnetic interference that can add brittleness to the sound.

AQ's Mackenzie cables let the music flow

Named after Canada's longest river, AudioQuest's beautifully built Mackenzie interconnects offer long-term listening enjoyment. Each cable features three solid copper conductors to virtually eliminate electrical and magnetic interference that can add brittleness to the sound.

Mackenzie's solid (not stranded) conductors are made of AQ's Perfect Surface Copper+. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion Perfect Surface Copper+ conductor. The resulting sound quality is even more focused and simply less in the way.

Solid connectors

Mackenzie's XLR plugs feature new connectors and new pins. The connectors are fastened by cold welding — a solder-less process that uses high pressure and silver paste to minimize signal loss. By contrast, solder tends to impede the signal, and the heating of the copper conductor during soldering can negatively affect its performance.

Product Highlights:

  • 1 pair of audio interconnects with XLR terminals
  • 3 solid copper conductors per cable eliminate the distortion caused by electrical and magnetic interaction of cable strands
  • conductors are made of high-purity, low-oxide Perfect-Surface Copper+
  • stiff Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam insulation stabilizes the position of the conductors to maintain consistent impedance over the length of the cable
  • carbon-based 3-layer Noise-Dissipation System prevents RF interference from reaching the equipment's ground plane
  • 3-conductor Triple-Balanced Geometry — the separate ground conductor ensures that positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths
  • cold-welded, silver-plated purple copper XLR plugs
  • black-and-brown braided jacket
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
