The rest of the Rivers place their conductors in a Triple-Balanced Geometry and are available with RCAs and XLRs. Like Chicago, Red River uses our Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors, while Mackenzie and Yukon employ AQ’s best copper conductor metal, Perfect-Surface Copper+. Like Red River and Mackenzie, Chicago uses Hard-Cell Foam insulation, while Yukon has the added sonic benefit of Polyethylene Air-Tubes, which reduce distortion even further. Chicago and Red River employ a Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS), while Mackenzie and Yukon offer the substantial upgrade to a Carbon-Based 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation System.

All four Rivers Series models exhibit our most recent thinking on plug design, featuring Cold-Welded terminations that use pressure to join a cable’s conductors and plug, thereby reducing the distortion that would be introduced by using damaging heat or foreign materials like solder. While Chicago and Red River have high-quality gold-plated plugs, Mackenzie and Yukon are equipped with more sophisticated plugs machined from pure Purple Copper. These plugs then benefit from our Hanging-Silver plating process, in which the copper plugs are submerged into a vat of extreme-purity silver to produce a very thick, sonically superior Direct-Silver Plating.

In addition to prepared cables, in a nod to custom-installation needs, Chicago, Red River, and Mackenzie are available as custom cables in braid or CL3/FT4 rated PVC jackets, either by the meter or in 100-meter (Chicago, Red River) and 50-meter (Mackenzie) spools. Chicago RCA, Red River RCA and XLR, and Mackenzie RCA and XLR plugs are available in sets of 4. A dedicated crimping tool is required.


The pioneering cable designer and manufacturer AudioQuest has been the largest cable supplier to the high-end specialist market for many years. Created in 1980 by Bill Low, AudioQuest is focused on the design and development of cables and is well known for the use of multiple connectors in their range of speaker cables. These high-end cables have been built using Bill’s understanding of the mechanisms that cause distortion in cable and have used technology to create superior sounding cables. 

AudioQuest has always based its products on performance and sound quality and have taken the design and development of cables and turned it into an art form. Over the years the range of cables has evolved from audio only to data cables, video and digital cables. These cables have been built from the ground up based on the same low distortion principles as the original audio cables. 

The results are truly superb with cables that are able to elevate a sound system by reducing distortion and providing a much clearer, harmonious and expressive tone. AudioQuest is sold in over sixty countries worldwide and is the cable of choice for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
