I had no strain working with the CV-4 with its bend radius of 40mm. Please watch for these markings when installing any audio cables.

A good mix of abilities across the range, if not truly outstanding. The spiral construction of CV-4 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel. Should the green light is gone you need to change the battery inside.

AUDIOQUEST CV-4 (164FT/BULK) SPEAKER CABLE

One of the vintage names in audio cables, AudioQuest has remained true over the years to certain design principles while still managing to innovate. Such limitations as there are show up in the treble, which can sound a little dry at times. All drawn metal exhibits directionality, whether in hardware store wire or in the best AQ cable.

The CV-4 boasts of an emerald green outer braid that feels like fabric on touch. SST has enabled CV-4 to be the biggest possible four conductor cable that avoids audible skin-effect.

When I talked to Joe Harley of Audioquest this spring he kept assuring that the philosophy of Audioquest is to do as less harm as possible to a music This is how the picture is painted by the CV Come to that, the claims Audioquezt makes for the existence of distortion in normal cables are not well supported by scientific evidence. PSC clearly outperforms previous AQ metals that cost over ten times as much. There is a small battery pack attached to the cable that provides a bias to the insulation of the cable to reduce energy storage in the dielectric, the producer says.

SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different size conductors. A combination of these major ingredients, and many more subtle details add up to explain how even an affordable cable like CV-4 can sound so good.

Audioquesg specific 4-cross geometry used in CV-4 maximizes this advantage. The aim is to reduce ‘energy storage’ in the insulation, though no-one has ever demonstrated that to be a problem: Our Verdict A good mix of abilities across the range, if not truly outstanding. When audioqeust low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low distortion conductor.

AudioQuest CV 4 Speaker Cables user reviews : out of 5 – 14 reviews –

The harder the better in order to minimize strand movement. For fifteen years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by the huge leap in performance. Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Whenever a cable does not have a charge on it, it is audikquest to an uncharged state; it is becoming new again. Product Description CV-4 with NEW Dielectric-Bias System might look like a normal round cable, but inside is a fully optimized combination of extraordinary materials and extremely refined design.

Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. There is no shiny and harsh sounding nickel layer underneath. For fifteen years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by the huge leap in performance. Well, from cv- distance of 3 meters the ZEF looks like cvv-4 ordinary white twin-wire. There was simply nothing to indicate that the ZEFs would be such Even though radially symmetrical conductors solid round or tubular have the fewest discontinuities, any particular size does have a sonic signature.

AQ ends are either a dull looking gold or silver because these metals are plated directly over the connector.

Today, there are many companies using cryogenic treatment of conductors with the claim of relieving material stress and improvement of molecular conductivity. The harder the better in order to minimize strand movement. AQ spade lugs are available in several sizes.

Against A bit expensive Still needs improvement. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the single greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat harsh, dirty and confused sound.

The spiral construction of CV-4 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel. Recommended resellers Audiostudio s. If you take a closer look it still keeps looking like the ordinary white twin-wire. Since DBS battery packs are attached when Mont Blanc cables are first terminated, Mont Blanc will be approaching or at peak performance by the time it is installed in your system. The connections via hollow expandable bananas are secure and tight.

By maintaining a 36 volt dielectric-bias, far above the voltage of delicate audio signals, the DBS system provides considerably better transparency and dynamics than is possible even from a cable in continuous use.

Bass is particularly good, while midrange is clear and detailed. The outer shell is PVC with a nylon braid. The longer we enjoy the painting the more and more details, those we did not notice before, are apparent. This is a rather interesting idea, which uses a small battery housed in a plastic moulding which clips to the side of the cable to provide a volt bias to the insulation within the cable, effectively stressing it uni-directionally before any audio signal is applied.

Whether a conductor is solid or stranded, skin-effect is a prime distortion mechanism in speaker cables.

Return to the Audioquest Home Page. All drawn metal exhibits directionality, whether in hardware store wire or in the best AQ cable. SST has enabled CV-4 to be the biggest possible four conductor cable that avoids audible skin-effect.

I have to say that I did not expect such a good performer in this price level.
