Availability: In Stock
In Stock An In Stock item is available to ship normally within 24 business hours.
Preorder A Preorder is an item that has not yet been released. Typically the label will set a projected release date (that is subject to change). If a projected release date is known, we will include this in the description in red. Other Preorders are set to release "TBA." This means that release date is yet "To Be Announced". The Preorder can be released anywhere between weeks, months or years from its initial announcement.
Backordered An Out Of Stock item is an item that we normally have available to ship but we are temporarily out of. We do not have a specific date when it will be coming.
Awaiting Repress Awaiting repress titles are in the process of being repressed by the label. No ETA is available at this time.
Expected On When an item is Out Of Stock and we have an estimated date when our stock should arrive, we list that date on our website in the part's description. It is not guaranteed.
Special Order A Special Order item is an item that we do not stock but can order from the manufacturer. Typical order times are located within the product description.

This Double-Star Quad cable does not look normal on the outside, and it is not at all normal on the inside. Amazingly clean and effortless performance is made possible by a sophisticated combination of extraordinary materials and extremely refined design.

Solid Conductors: Eliminate harshness and confusion due to strand interaction.

Perfect-Surface Copper/Long-Grain Copper: Rocket 44 uses a carefully finessed combination of extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) along with Long-Grain Copper (LGC). 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. Rocket 44’s conductor mix is dominated by Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC).

Double-Star Quad 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 Double-Star Quad construction of Rocket 44 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 four different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Rocket 44 allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.

Bi-Wiring: Rocket 44 is an exceptional Single-Biwire cable. When the halves are separated at the speaker end, the Double-Star Quad design turns Rocket 44 into a true Double-Biwire set thanks to the magnetic autonomy of each Star-Quad section. On its own, each Star Quad group would be a little light-weight in performance as it is biased towards treble finesse. The other Star Quad group is biased toward the bass; it’s more forceful and lacking ultimate resolution. Together they form a completely optimized full range design. When separated, the Double-Star Quad design lets Rocket 44 be a maximum performance Double-Biwire in a single cable.

Terminations: AudioQuest offers a wide range of high quality connectors that allow Rocket 44 to be securely attached to any type of equipment. AQ ends are either 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. 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 44 are marked “Speaker End” or “Amp End”. Please use cables in the direction required.
