This double star quad geometry "Flat Rock" cable does not look normal on the outside, and it is not at all normal on the inside. A sophisticated combination of extraordinary materials and extremely refined design lets the Rockets... to equally honor all types of music.
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.
Rocket 44 is an exceptional Single-Biwire cable.
