AudioQuest Rocket 11 Speaker Cable (Pair)
A 14-gauge LGC full-range cable
Rocket 11 uses semi-solid concentric conductors which are a far-superior performance alternative to typical stranded conductors. Semi-solid concentric conductors use fewer, larger strands that do not change position down the length of the cable. The strands maintain their fixed, rigid relationships, reducing distortion, improving resolution and dynamics, and greatly minimizing harshness and confusion due to strand interaction.
Long-grain copper has fewer oxides within the conducting material, fewer impurities, fewer grain boundaries, and definitively better performance than standard OFHC copper.
A “normal” speaker cable has fairly high-inductance, smearing energy across time and making the sound dull and unfocused. The two conductors in each half of Rocket 11 provide lower inductance, greater clarity, and superior bass-to-treble frequency extension.
Rocket 11 is prepared with SureGrip 300 spades or bananas. These connectors feature silver over copper with no layer of nickel in between.
