By maintaining a 36 volt dielectric-bias, far above the voltage of delicate audio signals, the DBS system provides considerably better transparency and dynamics than is possible even from a cable in continuous use.
It takes a couple of weeks for the DBS system to reach maximum performance. Since DBS battery packs are attached when Gibraltar cables are first terminated, Gibraltar will be approaching or at peak performance by the time it is installed in your system. A test button and LED allow for occasional verification of battery performance.
However, even when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly effect the sound. The dual spiral construction of Gibraltar allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel. The specific 4-cross geometry used in each half of Gibraltar maximizes this advantage. Even though radially symmetrical conductors solid round 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 four different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Gibraltar allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier.
The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in hash and better dimensionality that comes whenever RF garbage is reduced in an audio circuit. When the halves are separated at the speaker end, the double quad-helix design turns Gibraltar into a true double-biwire set thanks to the magnetic autonomy of each quad-helix. Together they form a completely optimized full range design, which was the first priority; but when separated the dual star quads let Gibraltar be a maximum performance double-biwire in a single cable.
AQ ends are either a dull looking gold or 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.
A combination of these major ingredients, and many more subtle details add up to explain how even a reasonably priced cable like Gibraltar can sound so good. Welcome to ManualMachine. We have sent a verification link to to complete your registration. Log In Sign Up.
AudioQuest's Gibraltar is founded on meticulous audio principles and years of technical research, trial, and experimentation. Free of nasty distortion and. In the case of the Gibraltar speaker cable, looks are deceiving. What appears to be a simple twin-lead design is as complex and technology-laden as the Anaconda. Strength: Balanced, clean, controlled. Good bass response. Weakness: A little lacking in dynamics and extension in highs. I've had this cable.
