For Sale:
Audioquest Cables Galore! RCA, Speaker, DBS, panther, jaguar, vdm, SOMETHING FOR EVERY SYSTEM!!!!!

Will Ship To: Anywhere

clearing out all of my dads unneeded equipment. Everything is in excellent gently used condition unless otherwise specified. I can provide individual pics upon request. ALL items were bought brand new from an authorized audioquest dealer. Shipping will be additional. Most items will fit in a small flat rate USPS box so shipping will be $6 for 'most' items. *having trouble with my photobucket album, will get this corrected ASAP and pictures posted, Mods please don't delete*

Pair (L/R) 1Meter (39 inches) PANTHER RCA with 36V DBS system. Retail $949 Asking $300

Panther Features Include: SC+ CONDUCTORS, DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM, TRIPLE BALANCED, WELDED PLUGS

OPTILINK-G toslink cable. 2M (6.5 ft) Retail $129 Asking $50

According to AQ, the optic cable is the “one” most important audio cable in a surround or digital system. The sound quality of all the channels, whether two or five or more, are dependent on this one cable to deliver an undistorted, smooth, clear and dynamic performance. The thoroughly engineered synthetic fiber in CinemaQuest OptiLink-G minimizes signal loss and jitter (time based distortion). The plug’s brass ferrule also contributes to ideal light transmission and the highest quality sound at a reasonable price.

VDM-1 3M (10ft) Retail $149 Asking $25

VDM Features include: SOLID 2.5% SILVER CONDUCTORS, HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION, 100% SHIELD COVERAGE (FOIL + SILVER-PLATED BRAID)

SUB-1 4.5M (16ft) Retail $500 asking $150

SUB-1 features include: SOLID 2.5% SILVER-PLATED LONG-GRAIN COPPER CONDUCTORS, POLYETHYLENE AIR-TUBE INSULATION, TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY, COLD-WELD SYSTEM, GROUNDING


Hawkeye RCA 36V DBS 3M (10ft) Retail $1150 Asking $300

Hawk Eye features: SOLID 100% PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER CONDUCTORS (PSS), HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION, 100% SHIELD COVERAGE (COPPER FOIL/SILVER-PLATED SPIRAL), 48V DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM, CARBON-BASED 3-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS)

The S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital InterFace), which arrived in 1983 along with the CD, is still very much a part of our world today. S/PDIF is transmitted through digital coax and A 75Ω cable is like a conduit that has to carry relatively low-frequency analog video (composite video, up to 4.2 MHz), or super-sensitive digital audio (S/PDIF, up to 24.576 MHz), or uncompressed High-Definition video (up to 750 MHz), or cable TV/broadband (CATV, up to 1 GHz).

SOLID 100% PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER CONDUCTORS (PSS): Perfect-Surface Technology applied to extreme-purity silver provides unprecedented clarity and dynamic contrast. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver minimizes distortion caused by the grain boundaries which exist within any metal conductor, nearly eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers.

HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest’s video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen injected to create air pockets. ‘Hard’ foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.

100% SHIELD COVERAGE (COPPER FOIL/SILVER-PLATED SPIRAL): Shielding always plays an important role in any cable design, but the shield on coax interconnect plays an especially important role because it functions not only as a shield but a return path as well. Because of this, AudioQuest pays special attention to the shield’s metal quality and the fabrication techniques as both will effect the sound and the picture.

48V DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #s 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest’s DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur. Sound appears from a surprisingly black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check.

CARBON-BASED 3-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. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground plane.

SOLID 2.5% SILVER-PLATED LONG-GRAIN COPPER CONDUCTORS: Silver-Plated Copper always provides superior performance for video and digital audio. Unfortunately when used for full-range analog audio, the discontinuity of silver plating over copper causes high frequencies to sound edgy and harsh. However, when used only for subwoofer frequencies, Silver-Plated Copper's "artificial edge" actually enhances the articulation and intelligibility of low-frequency information. Do not use AudioQuest's Silver-Plated Copper subwoofer cables for full-range audio.

POLYETHYLENE AIR-TUBE 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. All of Sub-1’s conductors use PE Air-Tube Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. PE Air-Tube Insulation causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.

TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: The three conductors in “Triple-Balanced” Sub-1 cables ensure that whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior conductor.

COLD-WELD SYSTEM: This novel plug design enables a perfect heat-free connection between cable and plug. The connection between the plug and conductors is made using AQ's Cold-Weld System, which provides a superior connection that ensures that the structural integrity of the conductor is kept completely intact. The Cold-Weld System refers to a combination of high pressure at the point of contact and the use of copper- or silver-impregnated paste. XLR plugs are also available.

GROUNDING: Sometimes there is a hum problem unless the subwoofer and AV receiver (or surround-sound processor) are attached to each other using a separate wire. If your system has a hum problem, try attaching the little spade-lug tails to the metal chassis of the subwoofer amplifier and to the chassis of the sending component. Usually, this extra wire will not be needed.
