AudioQuest Chicago


AudioQuest Chicago is the first in the River series. AudioQuest Chicago is ‘Double-Balanced’ built up. This means that the interconnect consists of two identical conductors, each isolated separately. Furthermore, the AudioQuest Chicago has a 100% shield from a metal foil.

All conductors of the AudioQuest Chicago have a solid core. Conventional cables often have multi-core conductors (‘stranded’). In a conventional cable, the electrical and magnetic interference between ‘strands’ such a conductor is the largest source of distortion. Often this results in a sharp and harsh ‘edge’.

AudioQuest Chicago can only be ordered with RCA connectors.

    Details

    Design

    AudioQuest Chicago is ‘Double-Balanced’ built up. This means that the interconnect consists of two identical conductors, each isolated separately. All other AudioQuest River series interlinks are ‘Triple-Balanced’. Furthermore, the (100%) shield consists of a metal foil and the interlink is only terminated with RCA connectors.

    Conductors

    All conductors of the Chicago have a solid core. Conventional cables have conductors with multiple cores (stranded). In a conventional cable, the electrical and magnetic interference between "strands" of such conductors are the greatest source of distortion. This often results that the sound gets a ‘hard or sharp edge’.

    Metal

    The special solid ‘Long Grain Copper’ used for the Chicago has a stunningly smooth surface. The copper wire is protected against damage during production.

    Insulation

    Every material that surrounds a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. The insulation around a conductor (but also, for example, printed circuit boards) absorbs energy. Part of that energy is stored temporarily, but released later. This is a source of distortion. The Chicago insulation is made of ‘Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam’.

    Noise-Dissipation System

    100% shielding is relatively easy. Preventing RF interference and transmitting these frequencies to the equipment requires AudioQuest's Noise-Dissipation System.

    Cold-Weld System

    The specially designed connectors are also attached to the conductors in a special way, without using heat. The result is a connection with less distortion.
