Audioquests QV 4 is a good example of that cable manufacturers go nowadays like to own ways. So it is in Irvine, California on four massive copper conductor. This should be not only very pure, but due to a special manufacturing process have a particularly smooth surface.
This Audioquest wants Chief Bill Low reduce distortions in the treble. Each of two different thick conductors are on the (1.0 mm 2 and 0, 52 mm²) for the power toggle and responsible for repatriation, what right a small cross-section of 1.52 mm² results. Low is particularly proud of the bias patented dielectric. This Volt batteries in a black piggy-back box to four 12 provide a tension, what is then unnecessary lows is convinced a burn-in time.
So we opened the listening comparisons using the test, whether you can really hear this on the Audioquest CV 4. And amazed we determine in a blind test that it sounded quite minimal orderly and precise, if the box was connected. But this effect was very small and resulted in no full sound improvement point, so feei it seven points on the height of the stereoplay highlights Siltech MXT London (test 1/06) was. His little brighter and more open tendency parried the CV 4 with larger space and sharper picture.
