AudioQuest is the world’s largest cable supplier to the high-end specialist market. AudioQuest was founded in 1980 by Bill Lowe, an enthusiast and hi-fi dealer in California, after recognizing the sonic degradation caused by inferior cable offered at the time. Bill created a demand for better quality cable by creating his own cable and offering them to clients and neighboring dealers, established in core principles still in practice today in AudioQuest products. Contrary to most cable manufacturers, Bill Lowe believed quality cable design was about damage control – cables cannot improve the sound of your system because they inherently are a conduit for noise, distortion, and signal loss. AudioQuest uses solid core conductors, conductor geometry, quality termination, and the patented DBS (dielectric bias system) to aid a system realizing its full potential. This approach recognizes cables as an essential part of the system and important to the synergy between all the components.
