THE DEFINITION OF VDM: Audioquest/CinemaQuest VDM Series cables are designed to minimize distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. A 75ý cable is like a conduit which has to carry relatively low frequency analog video (Composite, up to 4.2MHz), or super sensitive digital audio (SP/DIF, up to 24.576 MHz), or uncompressed High Definition video (HDTV, up to 750 MHz), or cable TV/broadband (CATV, up to 1 GHz). AQ/CQ VDM (preterminated cables) and VSD (bulk installation cables) cables are designed to carry all these signals with minimum interference from the cable.
THE INGREDIENTS: VDM-5 uses a Solid Silver (Perfect-Surface Silver) center conductor insulated with Hard Cell Foam (HCF). Normal 1.25% silver-plate greatly improves high frequency performance for a fraction of the cost of Solid Silver. 2.5% and 6.1% silver conductors allow much higher performance. However, Solid Silver made using Perfect-Surface technology is the clear answer to "How good can it get?" Nitrogen-Injected HCF reduces distortion caused by the insulating material. The combination conductive PVC and Silver-Plated braid shield provides 100% protection coverage and lower distortion. Silver-Plated RCA plugs are welded to VDM-5 with 8,000 amps, commingling the molecules for an ideal connection. BNC connectors are also available.
