Solid Conductors: Eliminate harshness and confusion due to strand
Long-Grain Copper/Perfect-Surface Copper: Rocket 33 uses a carefully
finessed combination of Long-Grain Copper (LGC) and extremely high-purity
Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC). LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting
material, less impurities, less grain boundaries and definitively better
performance. The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC further eliminates harshness
and greatly increases clarity.
Dual-Triple Geometry: The relationship between conductors defines a
cables most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even
when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between
conductors can be varied in ways that greatly affect the sound. The Dual-Triple
construction of Rocket 33 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and
information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.
Spread-Spectrum Technology (SST): Any single size or shape of conductor
has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors
(solid or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any particular size does
have a sonic signature. SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness
of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different size
conductors. The six different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Rocket 33
allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.
Bi-Wiring: Rocket 33 is an exceptional Single-Biwire cable. When the
halves are separated at the speaker end, the Dual-Triple design turns Rocket 33
into a true Double-Biwire set thanks to the magnetic autonomy of each
tri-conductor section. On its own, one tri-conductor group would be a little
light-weight in performance as it is biased towards treble finesse. The other
tri-conductor group is biased toward the bass; its more forceful and lacking
ultimate resolution. Together they form a completely optimized full range
design. When separated, the Dual-Triple design lets Rocket 33 be a maximum
performance Double-Biwire in a single cable.
Terminations: AudioQuest offers a wide range of high quality connectors
that allow Rocket 33 to be securely attached to any type of equipment. AQ ends
are either dull looking gold r silver because these metals are plated directly
over the connector. There is no shiny and harsh sounding nickel layer
underneath. AQ PK-spade lugs are soft because better metal is soft, and
facilitates a higher quality connection. For pieces requiring a banana plug or
BFA connector the AQ PK-BFA/Banana provides unprecedented performance over
conventional brass versions.
Application: The PVC “pants” on either end of Rocket 33 are marked
“Speaker End” or “Amp End”. Please use cables in the direction required.
