AudioQuest's Yosemite cables feature Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors, an insulation system designed with FEP Air-Tubes, and AudioQuest's brilliant 72V Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) for a marked sonic upgrade over standard mini cables, improved dynamic response, and a truly uplifting listening experience. While theoreticians debate whether the true nature of the universe is analog or digital, one constant in our audiophile galaxy is that the music, dialogue, and sound effects which reach our ears is analog. In order to preserve this precious cargo, AudioQuest has designed a range of analog interconnects optimized for the single-ended world. Yosemite takes advantage of years of carefully balancing design and material selection in order to bring you a series of interconnects which, as much as possible, "Do No Harm" to the original audio signal.
Yosemite is available with a variety of terimations including RCA > RCA, DIN, and 3.5mm mini connections. Please call for pricing and availability.
Yosemite, like virtually all of AQ’s cables, uses solid-core conductors for the analog pathway. Solid-core conductors are more efficient at transmitting small signals than stranded cables and are also vastly lower in distortion, a difference that is clearly audible from the first instant; the system sounds like someone turned up the volume! This efficiency also translates to more music coming through, plug in a Yosemite and hear things in your music you’ve never heard before, literally!
Yosemite receives AQ’s best copper, PSC+. A higher grade of copper than PSC, PSC+ receives the same proprietary Perfect Surface polishing process which, as the name implies, smoothes the surface of the conductors. Since treble and midrange frequencies travel very close to the surface in a solid-core conductor, eliminating even microscopic roughness on the surface of the conductor greatly reduces distortion. Sonically, PSC+ is vastly more resolving than PSC, like lifting a sheet off of the speakers, offering greater resolution, greater presence, far more extension top to bottom and far better grip in the lower octaves. For those who value a high level of resolution in their system, PSC+ is the ideal conductor.
