AudioQuest Rocket 22

Rocket 22 is a significant upgrade from Rocket 11 and is suitable for Full-Range or Single-BiWire use. Single-BiWire is ideal for speakers with Bass and Treble inputs as it optimizes performance. The magnetic autonomy of the separate halves of the Rocket 22 maximizes the BiWire advantage, reducing distortion.

Semi-Solid Concentric conductors offer superior performance to typical stranded conductors. Fewer, larger strands that do not change position down the length of the cable maintain their fixed, rigid relationships, reducing distortion and improving resolution, dynamics, and minimizing harshness due to strand interaction.

The Rocket 22's conductors feature Perfect-Surface Copper/Long-Grain Copper, which has fewer oxides and impurities and fewer grain boundaries than standard OFHC copper. PSC is used for the outer layer of conductors, while LGC is used for conductors located in the central area of the Semi-Solid Concentric Conductor bundle. Careful application of PSC and LGC enables performance close to using only the more expensive PSC while gaining the economic advantage of the superb LGC.

The Double Low-Inductance Geometry of Rocket 22 reduces smearing energy across time, resulting in greater clarity and superior bass-to-treble frequency extension. The cable comes equipped with SureGrip 300 spades or bananas, featuring Direct-Silver over copper with no layer of nickel in between.

Rocket 22 uses a carefully finessed blend of Long-Grain Copper (LGC) and high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC). LGC has fewer impurities and fewer internal grain junctions than standard OFHC copper, while the even smoother, purer surface of PSC further eliminates harshness and improves clarity. All AudioQuest conductors are direction-controlled for optimum noise dissipation.
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.
Use Rocket 11/22 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.
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
