Audioquest DBS 72V Upgrade Kit
Now you can upgrade your existing Audioquest Interconnects Cables or Speakers
Cables with the new DBS 72V Upgrade Kit!
This DBS Voltage upgrade kit is for use with existing DBS cables only.
Batteries on a cable? In addition to insulating and isolating, insulation
is also a “dielectric.” Insulation has permittivity and permeability; it stores
and releases energy. Unfortunately, dielectrics are non-linear with frequency
and with wave amplitude, causing nasty non-linear phase shifts proportional to
frequency and/or signal amplitude.
Fortunately, by electrostatically aligning/polarizing the molecules within a
cable's dielectric, the non-linear corruption can be dramatically reduced. The
reason your equipment and your cables sound better when you leave your equipment
turned on is because you are partially aligning and polarizing the dielectric
material present throughout every component. However, even playing music loud
all the time will never fully “form” the dielectric.
In contrast, by building-in a dedicated DBS-only conductor down the center of a
cable, AQ’s Dielectric-Bias System puts a continuous 72 volt potential (DC
bias) between the very center and an outer shield-like layer. All the dielectric
in-between is fully aligned all the time. There is no interaction with the
signal conductors. Nothing is put in the signal path. A test button and LED
allow for occasional verification of battery performance.
