Rocket 11 is an ideal Full-Range or Single-BiWire cable. Single-BiWire allows you to optimize performance when the speakers have Bass and Treble inputs.
BiWiring reduces distortion in the cable — taking the big Bass energy out of the cable carrying the more delicate Treble is like taking the waves out of the water when you (the Treble) are trying to swim. The magnetic autonomy of the separate halves of the Rocket 11 maximizes the BiWire advantage.
Semi-Solid Concentric conductors are a far-superior performance alternative to typical stranded conductors. Semi-Solid Concentric conductors use fewer, larger strands that do not change position down the length of the cable. The strands maintain their fixed, rigid relationships, reducing distortion, improving resolution and dynamics, and greatly minimizing harshness and confusion due to strand interaction.
Long-Grain Copper has fewer oxides within the conducting material, fewer impurities, fewer grain boundaries and definitively better performance than standard OFHC copper.
Double Low-Inductance Geometry: A “normal” speaker cable has fairly high-inductance, smearing energy across time and making the sound dull and unfocused. The two conductors in each half of Rocket 11 provide lower inductance, greater clarity and superior bass-to-treble frequency extension.
Rocket 11 is prepared with SureGrip 300 spades or bananas. These connectors feature Direct-Silver over copper with no layer of nickel in between.
- SEMI-SOLID CONCENTRIC LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS: In a conventional multi-strand cable, distortion caused by electrical and magnetic strand interaction is compounded as each strand changes position within the bundle. In an AQ Semi-Solid Concentric cable, strands within the bundle maintain their fixed relationships, significantly reducing distortion. Long-Grain Copper (LGC) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.
- DOUBLE LOW-INDUCTANCE TWISTED PAIR GEOMETRY: A typical speaker cable with parallel conductors has fairly high inductance, smearing energy across time, which results in sound that is dull and unfocused. In Rocket 11, the two conductors in each half of the cable are twisted around one another, providing lower inductance, greater clarity, and superior bass-to-treble frequency extension
- IDEAL FOR FULL-RANGE OR SINGLE-BIWIRE CONFIGURATIONS: Use Rocket 11 as a full-range cable, with red (+) and black (-) conductors grouped together, or, when the speakers provide separate bass and treble inputs, further optimize system performance by biwiring.
Hear your favorite music and movies for the first time !
I alawys knew quality wires makes a difference in components The Audioquest rocket 11 are fantastic! You will hear parts of your favorite music and movies you haven't heard before! I just didn't know how much of a difference these wires would have made? Well im here to tell you they made one hellva difference! So glad I made this purchase. CANT WAIT TO HEAR WHAT IVE BEEN MISSING all this time! I know the wires are alittle expensive but would you buy a luxury car with low budget tires?
The system is as expected and sounds great. I was a little disappointed that I did not realize speaker cables were excluded but all in all I am happy with the purchase.
