    The latest addition to AudioQuest’s comprehensive USB cable lineup includes 4 existing models now available with Apple’s® Lightning™ connector (as used on all recent iOS devices)on one end, and the standard USB A connector on the other end. Whether connecting mobile devices and their content to the USB ports now common to so many automobile entertainment systems, or to a full-blown stereo system at home, a cable with minimal distortion is required for sound that is full, engaging and 3 Dimensional. Thin and flat is a great form factor for an iPhone or iPad®, but that’s not how the music from those marvelous devices should sound!

    These new versions of Forest, Cinnamon, Carbon and Diamond all use solid conductors, as is true for all AudioQuest’s USB cables. Solid conductors eliminate strand interaction, one of the biggest sources of distortion in cables. Three of the models use silver plating over LGC copper because silver plating is a very cost-effective way to gain much of the low-distortion advantage of solid silver at a fraction of the cost.

    Forest’s superior sound is in part made possible by its solid 0.5% silver conductors. Cinnamon employs 1.25% silver conductors and adds a Noise-Dissipation System (NDS) layer. Carbon’s solid 5% silver conductors and Carbon-Based 3-layer NDS significantly increase the sense of audio immersion, and Diamond, with its solid 100% Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) conductors and Dielectric-Bias System (DBS), offers the ultimate in natural ease and sonic purity.

    AQ’s take-no-prisoners Lightning connector uses an ABS shell, over a solid one-piece die-cast shield, over the properly stress-free internal connections.


    Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like USB audio. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality USB cables.


    Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest’s video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen injected to create air pockets. ‘Hard’ foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.


    Precision gold-plated plugs are carefully attached with the very best solder. Through choice of flux and metallurgy, AQ solder has been optimized to make a low-distortion connection. The difference you hear between solders is a result of connection quality. AQ solder does not have a high silver content because the more silver there is in solder, the more difficult it is to make a good connection.
