Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction a major source of distortion. The surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material less impurities less grain boundaries and definitively better performance. Hard-Cell Foam Insulation Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Hard-Cell Foam Insulation is similar to the Foamed-PE used in AQ's more affordable Bridges Falls cables and is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. Because nitrogen (like air) does not absorb energy and therefore does not release any energy from or into the conductor distortion is reduced. In addition the stiffness of the material allows the cable's conductors to maintain a stable relationship along the cable's full length producing a stable impedance character and further minimizing distortion.
