The gray 328' spool of Type 2 Star-Quad Series Speaker Cable from AudioQuest is built around a Star-Quad geometric design. The Star-Quad construction of Type 2 allows for better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.

The cable is unterminated, suitable for bare wire terminals or for adding your own connectors.

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 conductor of a 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 different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Type 2 allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound.
Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors
Type 2's Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance. All four of Type 2's conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the single greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat harsh, dirty and confused sound. Solid conductors are the most important ingredients enabling Type 2's very clear sound. Whether a conductor is solid or stranded, skin-effect is a prime distortion mechanism in speaker cables. Type 2 keeps this effect out of the audio range by using conductor sizes that are below the threshold for audible distortion.
Star-Quad Geometry
The relationship between conductors defines a cable's 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 Star-Quad construction of Type 2 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.
