By contrast, solder tends to impede the signal, and heating the copper can negatively affect its conductivity. AudioQuest cables are known for their ability to deliver smooth, engaging sound that never sacrifices a bit of detail. Stay In The Know. Thank you for your feedback. As I was happy to note, the Castle Rock also improves on the Rocket 88 in terms of treble air and -flow and even if its solid core nature will not make the cable sound like the airiest of competing litze designs, its balance is just what the doctor ordered for this setup.
It rocjet on the geometry, material mix and plating. It is said that this is actually a function of the DBS system.
The Rocket 88 is the top level cable it its series. This is of course not Rocket science. That said, the base material does have an influence of course, especially when using plated materials.
You may want to try the smoother one first.
We are not responsible for typographical or illustrative errors. I would appreciate your opinion regarding the GO-4 vs. Like the Rocket 88, the Castle Rock provides rock-solid, deep and powerful bass.
The Go-4 is the more audiophile choice with more natural timbre, sharper transients, more articulate bass and better focusing. I think you may need to look further, and for your system and taste perhaps avoid solid core cables and go with stranded ones.
The 3 cables were connected successively, so this did take some time. Note that I reviewed two versions Ricable, one smoother and the other more precise.

The Double Star-Quad construction of Rocket 88 cables results in better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than the same conductors run in parallel. The reason the Rocket 88 sounded darker and drier is because it is terminated with gold. Ausioquest test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check. These days it seems that many audio companies are improving their products toward a common goal: Even though radially symmetrical conductors solid or tubular have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature.
In other words, there are also cables that rpcket highly detailed but without being hard in the midrange. I like a speaker cable that is even across the whole frequency range, full bodied, relaxed, a bit on the warmer side.
Castle Rock Castle Rock is the entry level cable in its series. Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Skyline Hybrid is a different price category and has a completely different sound.
Lastly timbre was spot on: But as more often happens, the devil is in the details, and as it would turn out the Castle Rock really is in another league compared to the 2 cables listened to before it. One of the most important ingredients in a high-quality cable is the metal used for the signal conductors. Midrange was even more tangible, most noticeable with piano which was way more real than with the GO The relationship between conductors defines a cable’s most basic electrical values capacitance and inductance.
Yes Supreme, or the Hi End. I have a silver terminated Rocket 88 and it sounds exactly how you explain it with the Castle Rock. Overview One of the most important ingredients in a high-quality cable is the metal used for the signal conductors.
Silver can absolutely also sound very fluid and smooth. AudioQuest’s Rocket 88 speaker cables are designed to help high-performance audio systems sound their very best.

In any event the biggest difference was in the amplifier warming up during the first hour. This cable simply sounds perfect in pitch and tempo: The Van den Hul Skyline Hybrid.
Roosendaal, The Netherlands Telephone: It also seems to be less spacious, but the cable does offer plenty of detail throughout the frequency spectrum. What appeals to me very much is your analysis of the Castle Rock cables being very lifelike, with an enveloping auro that fills the room.
To my surprise it also sounded very good right from the start. The K2 has a solid silver core and my question is wether one can say in general what the characteristics are of solid silver and solid rockef cables? Hi Christiaan, Thanks for your elaborate insight in the Audioquest cables.

Here I was thinking that the Auduoquest could be my next default go-to cable for this setup. Some of our web prices are cheaper than in-store.

Does that sound like Ricable?
