The Big Sur is the US manufacturer's third model in the 'Bridges & Falls' range. It builds on the brand's technology and expertise: the conductors are very high quality, they use a single strand perfect surface copper (PSC+). The geometry is symmetrical, meaning that in addition to the shielding screens, the Big Sur uses a conductor for the positive signal and a similar one for the negative signal. They are welded onto the plugs without tin but with a cold welding process, via an electric current with a several thousand amperes! The cable shape and the insulation are designed with a very specific expertise. The insulators are polyethylene and air based, for minimum energy loss and reduced distortion. The RCA connectors are of excellent quality, consisting of gold-plated pure copper.
As always with Audioquest, the sound is defined and very precise. The frequency response is wide and does justice to every register. The timbre is precise and makes the music very authentic. Its balance helps a neutral and vibrant sound, making it compatible with many combinations.
It is ideal for preamplifiers such as Pro-Ject's Phono Tube Box, Moon 110 LP and Lehmann Black Cube, as well as headphone amplifiers such as Pro-ject's Headbox DS and Rega Ear, etc. Franck
