  1. Purchased new from authorised AudioQuest dealer. Second from the top model from AudioQuest. Component video provides a significantly better picture than other analog connections, like composite or S-video. Its greater color bandwidth results in clearer color reproduction with less bleeding. AudioQuest's YIQ-3 delivers sharp detail and accurate, lifelike colors from your video source. CinemaQuest YIQ component video cables include three identical maximum performance coaxial cables, one for each of the three component signals; the “Y” (b&w) signal and the “I” and “Q” signals (also known as Pb and Pr), which contain all the color information. In the two channel S- video system (also known as Y/C), the “I” and “Q” component signals are combined to create a single “C” signal. When available, a three channel component signal is better because it avoids the degradation caused by the process of combining and separating. YIQ-3 uses a 6.1% Silver Center Conductor (6.1% SPC) insulated with Hard Cell Foam (HCF). Normal 1.25% silver-plate greatly improves high frequency performance for a fraction of the cost of solid silver. A 6.1% silver conductor is much closer to all silver, still for a fraction of the cost. Nitrogen Injected HCF reduces distortion caused by the insulating material. The combination Copper foil and Silver- Plated braid shield provides 100% protection coverage and lower distortion. Gold-Plated RCA, BNC or D- Sub 15 connectors are professionally attached with superior AudioQuest solder.

  8. Hi, they were purchased in Sept 2014. Cheers, Alex
  9. Item: Bocchino Audio Mecado Titanium GR2 Isolation Feet/Footers/Cones Set Location: Adelaide Price: $SOLD Item Condition: Excellent (light marks from placement) Reason for selling: Selling last of my reference system Payment Method: Pickup, Cash, EFT, Paypal (buyer pays postage and any transaction fees) Extra Info: The last and best of my isolation footers, used under my $16k DAC (now sold so they have to go). Bocchino make some of the best engineered and best sounding cables and isolation accessories on the market. These titanium footers currently retail for over $1000 for a set of 3. Yes, they make a large difference on the spatial presentation of sound, provided you have high quality equipment. From the Bocchino website: Mecado’s...are essentially Mechanical Diodes that channel mechanical vibrational energy to the cone/shoe interface for dissipation as heat. The design minimises transmission of mechanical vibrational energy from the environment where the appliance is located and maximises the removal of the same from the appliance to the cone/shoe interface for dissipation and removal. The benefits are audible immediately on installation and improve dramatically as more Mecado’s are placed under more of the appliances; Nominally the most you need to use on most appliances is 3, on very heavy loudspeakers and behemouth amplifiers then 4 may be required. Music displays less smearing and appears more distinct. Transients are sharper and possess more bite while being more refined. Instruments have more solidity, and their focus or location in the stereo field is better defined with the space around them cleaned and free of vibrational artefacts. There is a cleaner air to music and especially vocals. A more natural reproduction of an instruments’ timbre becomes evident with greater accuracy in the mapping of each notes' transient and harmonic space. Resolution of low-level information is greatly enhanced as it would normally be lost in the micro-vibrational artefacts that persist in a system that is not properly de-coupled. There is better translation of the time between notes and greater clarity in tracking the subtle gradations of dynamic range. This enables a more accurate identification of individual instruments, and coherency of their acoustic venue. The listener is better able to garner a more marked understanding of the intent and artistry of the musicians, and the artistic message intended. Lyrics become more intelligible with sharpness of diction the most immediate improvement.
