AudioQuest Golden Gate

Firstly I understand completely that all audio products act differently when used with different equipment and the quest for 'better' sound is a personal journey. This review is in no way a reflection on Rapallo. Extremely disappointed with this product, it turned my beautiful, engaging stereo into a hissing rambling mess. The mid to upper frequency range seemed stretched, thinning the mid-range and pushing the tops higher to a metallic, painful experience. The bass was less through the speakers, I do run a sub but don't completely rely on it. On a brighter note (joke there) I couldn't believe the change in my stereo, if matched correctly I'm sure interconnects could really help a struggling system.

AudioQuest Golden Gate RCA Analogue Cable

The proprietary metal-processing technology in the AudioQuest Golden Gate RCA Analogue Cable protects the wire’s surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication.


Purpose designed for single-ended applications, Asymmetrical Double-Balanced Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance.

Since the beginning, AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals, yet even we were surprised by the huge leap in performance attained through the astonishingly smooth and pure surface of Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC). PSC clearly outperforms previous AQ metals that cost over ten times as much. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire’s surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure, and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion conductor. In a conventional cable, electrical and magnetic interaction between strands is one of the greatest sources of distortion, often causing a somewhat harsh, dirty sound. Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Red River’s very clean, natural sound.

It’s easy to accomplish 100% shield coverage. Preventing captured Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from modulating the equipment’s ground reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation System (NDS). Traditional shield systems typically absorb and then drain noise/RF energy to component ground, modulating and distorting the critical “reference” ground plane, which in turn causes a distortion of the signal. NDS “shields the shield,” absorbing and reflecting most of this noise/RF energy before it reaches the layer attached to ground.

Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile, Foamed-PE, with its high air content, causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.

This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Instead of solder, the process employs a high-pressure technique. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal used can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.
