Paul's hand-selected reference balanced interconnects are AudioQuest Fire, a triple geometry shielded interconnecting cable with AudioQuest's patented 72V Dielectric-Bias System and multi-layer Noise-Dissipation System that brings the music into the room in its purest form. Heard through PS Audio's Reference System, there's magic.
Connecting separates together in a no-holds-barred reference system is a critical task. It is here, between each piece in the audio chain where musical information can easily be lost of distorted. For PS Audio's world-class Reference System in Music Room II, nothing was spared to get the best possible sound quality. That's why we chose AudioQuest Fire for our balanced interconnects. From the first moment we lit the system up with Fire cables, we knew this was just right. Open, spacious, tonally correct, Paul's Reference AQ Fires make sonic magic.
The AQ Fire interconnects are part of AudioQuest's Elements Series featuring advanced geometry, Solid Perfect-Surface Silver conductors, 72V Dielectric-Bias System, FEP Air Tube insulation for the conductors, and some of the very best sound we've ever had in Music Room II.
In the PS Audio Reference System, AQ Fire balanced interconnects connect every piece of audio gear, from the BHK 300 Monoblock amplifiers to the DirectStream DAC and everything in between. The interconnects are dead quiet and bring new life to the system in ways we never previously experienced.
Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then later released as distortion. Air, however, absorbs next to no energy, and FEP is the best extrudable solid insulation, absorbing less energy than other materials. The use of FEP Air-Tube insulation, with almost nothing but air around the solid conductors, improves the sound of an audio system's focus and dynamics.
AudioQuest's Triple-Balanced Geometry uses a separate ground-reference conductor, so the cable's shield is never used as an inferior conductor. Whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the cable's three conductors ensure that the positive and negative signals have equally superior, low-distortion conducting paths.
