AudioQuest Wind Interconnects
Transparent to the source, clean, open, and vibrant, AudioQuest Wind interconnects deliver music’s dimensions, textures, timbres, and dynamics with aplomb. Just a few tiers down from AudioQuest’s top line, Wind gives you the truth of what’s on your recordings in an involving manner replete with presence, immediacy, and depth. Outfitted with AudioQuest’s Dielectric Bias System, carbon-based eight-layer noise-dissipation system, FEP air tubes, and PSS Silver as well as other high-tech advances designed to provide the very best sonic experience, Wind is as masterful as nature itself.
“Wind isn’t the kind of interconnect you choose to push your system toward a softer or weightier sound. Rather, it’s the kind of interconnect you choose when the rest of your system includes highly resolving and transparent components, and you want to hear them at their best.”
—Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound
Solid conductors prevent both strand-to-strand contacts and magnetic interaction, major sources of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. While less perfectly processed silver can have the same irritating tweeter-in-your-face sound as silver-plated strands, PSS Silver's smooth surface, extraordinarily careful processing, and high purity, deliver sound as smooth and beautiful as AudioQuest's PSC+ Copper, but with significantly higher resolution.
AudioQuest's Dielectric Bias System creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This dramatically reduces dielectric induced smearing of the signal, letting sound emerge from a "black" background. A carbon-based 8-layer noise dissipation system shields-the-shield, reducing RFI contamination of the equipment ground plane. FEP air tubes provide almost no contact between conductors and insulation reduces smearing and preserves dynamics. Proper ground-reference conductor prevents using the shield as an inferior ground-reference conductor.
Because all drawn metal is directional, all audio cables are directional. AudioQuest analog and digital audio cables are all controlled for correct directionality. For the best sound, please use the cable with the arrows pointing from source to receiver or component.
