**Special Orders: We can special order any cable in any available length or termination you need from the AudioQuest Retail Catalog. You can call, email, or message us to place a special order. Speaker cables are sold as a pair by default but can also be ordered in single units (EG. center channel etc.)
For high-resolution premium-sounding audio, the superiority of the craftsmanship, engineering, and cable terminations matter. AudioQuest has been the most significant cable supplier to the high-end specialist market for years. Their portfolio has sold in several thousand outlets in over sixty countries, and we feel they deliver excellent value and performance to maximize and highlight your listening experience.
The Rocket 11 line represents our Premium Level upgrade for your speaker cables and is available in Full-Range or Single-BiWire configurations (BiWire allows for separate bass and treble inputs further optimizing system performance.)
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.
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 11/22, 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.
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 bi-wiring.
