AudioQuest Black Beauty Analog Interconnect (pair)
Meaning “Big River” in Athabaskan, the Yukon River starts with the Llewellyn Glacier as its source in British Columbia, and empties into Alaska’s Bering Sea. It may have been the first immigration route for North America’s first indigenous humans, and was certainly the principle means of travel during the 1896-1903 Klondike Gold Rush.

AudioQuest's Mythical Horses, Black Beauty, and Pegasus, bring the proven advantages of ZERO-Tech to a much wider audience.
Most of the delightfully obvious sonic advantages of ZERO-Tech and the other refinements that enable the Mythical Creatures (ThunderBird, FireBird, and Dragon) are just as obvious when listening through the Mythical Horses.
To keep the very complicated construction flexible, the upper Mythicals have two or three externally visible separate constructions. While also necessarily complex, Black Beauty and Pegasus package all that ZERO-Tech goodness in single round cables (smaller for the 2-conductor RCA versions, a bit larger for the 3-conductor XLR versions).
In addition, Black Beauty features several AudioQuest design elements that work together to reduce distortion and efficiently dissipate radio-frequency noise. These include Direction-Controlled Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors, Carbon/Graphene Mesh-Network, Copper-Plated Plug Casings, and Hanging-Silver over Red-Copper plugs.
