The 3.3' Big Sur iPod 30-pin iPod to 3.5mm Plug Cable from AudioQuest uses solid-core conductors for the analog pathway. Solid-core conductors are more efficient at transmitting small signals than stranded cables and are also vastly lower in distortion, a difference that is clearly audible from the first instant; the system sounds like someone turned up the volume.

Big Sur uses air-filled foamed-polyethylene insulation on both conductors because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile.

Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat dirty, harsh sound. Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Big Sur's clean sound.

Perfect-Surface Copper+
(PSC+) Perfect-Surface Copper+ has a smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a low-distortion PSC+ conductor. PSC+ is manufactured by applying the same technology to an ultra-pure copper
Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation
Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Big Sur uses air-filled foamed-polyethylene insulation on both conductors because air absorbs next to no energy and polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials
Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS)
Preventing captured RF interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System, which prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane
Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry
Purpose designed for single-ended applications, double-balanced asymmetrical geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, double-balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance
Cold-Welded Gold-Plated Pure Purple Copper 3.5mm Plug
This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability. Purple-copper offers a cleaner, clearer sound than the nickel-plated or OFHC metals commonly found in competing manufacturers' plugs
