audioquest Mackenzie history:

The Mackenzie, originally named Disappointment because, unlike Alexander McKenzie, it flows into the Arctic Sea rather than the Pacific, is Canada's largest and longest river system. It flows for 2,635 miles through an extensive network of lakes, boreal forests and arctic tundra. The Mackenzie's numerous tributaries cover parts of three provinces - British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan - and two territories: Yukon and the Northwest Territories. Known as the “Amazon of the North,” Mackenzie, with its sparsely populated river basin, is one of the largest untouched natural areas in the world.

SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ CONDUCTORS (PSC+): Perfect-Surface-Copper+ has a surprisingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal processing technology protects the surface of the wire at every step of drawing and manufacturing. When high-purity, low-oxygen copper is obtained as soft, pure, and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion PSC+ conductor. The production of PSC+ uses the same exceptional technology as ultra-pure copper. The resulting sound quality is even more focused and unobtrusive. For more than 30 years, AudioQuest has pioneered the use of high quality metals; but even we were surprised at the huge leap in performance made possible with Perfect Surface technology. PSC+'s performance exceeds all previously available copper metals at every price level. All of the ladders at Mackenzie are massive. The mutual electrical and magnetic influence of the strands in conventional cable structures is the greatest source of interference and often causes an “unclean”, “rough” sound. Solid conductors are the fundamental basis for the Mackenzie's pure sound.

HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Hard-Cell foam is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to PE foam, it contains nitrogen injections that create air pockets. “Hard” foam is used because the rigidity of the material ensures that the conductors within the cable do not change position relative to one another throughout the cable length, maintaining the characteristic impedance evenly.

CARBON-BASED 3-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS): Achieving 100 percent shielding is easy. To prevent “trapped” RF interference from affecting the device’s ground reference, the AQ noise dissipation system is required. Metal and carbon-containing plastics prevent most RF interference from reaching the device's ground plane.

TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: The three conductors in Mackenzie “Triple-Balanced” cables, whether assembled with RCA or XLR connectors, ensure that equally low-distortion conductor paths are available for the positive and negative signals. The 100% shielding is never used as an inferior conductor.

audioquest Mackenzie offers COLD WELDED DIRECT SILVER PLATED PURE “PURPLE COPPER” CONNECTORS: This connector design allows connection without solder - as this is a common source of interference. Because the ferrules are stamped rather than machined, the metal can be selected for low distortion rather than machinability. Purple-Copper offers a purer, clearer sound than nickel-plated or OFHC metals often found in competitive plugs. Direct silver plating represents another important step towards greater clarity without affecting the signal.
