DBS offers a lower noise-floor, so you can hear deeper into the nuances of your favorite music. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. Rocket 88 uses Nitrogen-Injected Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on its positive conductors because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss with a benign distortion profile. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur.

DBS offers a lower noise-floor, so you can hear deeper into the nuances of your favorite music. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields that extend outside the conductor. However, even when those variables are kept in reasonably neutral balance, the particular geometric relationship between conductors greatly affects the sound.
Star-Quad geometry is not only vastly superior to conductors run in parallel, but also to the same conductors as two twisted pairs. This remarkable material reduces radio-frequency garbage being fed back into the amplifier.
The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and improved dimensionality that comes whenever RF interference is reduced in an audio circuit. In addition, a carbon layer damps interaction between positive and negative conductors, and an external Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation System reduces external interference.
Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Tower, however, 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, Foamed-PE, with its high air content, causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials. When the dielectric is unbiased, dielectric-involvement absorption and non-linear release of energy causes different amounts of time delay phase shift for different frequencies and energy levels, which is a real problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio.

The 3 cables were connected successively, so this did take some time. I am not sure if 1 week is enough for these cables, but I must say that I did not hear a whole lot of difference between the very first moment of connection and the sound 1 week later. It is said that this is actually a function of the DBS system. In any event the biggest difference was in the amplifier warming up during the first hour.

Biwire No This configuration is claimed to reduce unwanted interactions between the strands and so lower distortion. Each pair of conductors is then twisted to improve rejection of external interference. There are four pairs of conductors per channel, and while our sample of the cable was terminated to be single-wired, the construction opens up the Rocket 22 to be bi-wired too. Straight out of the packaging it sounds a little thick and murky, obscuring low level dynamics and some higher frequency detail behind an unusually smooth and full-bodied presentation. Sound In both systems, we enjoy a spacious and refined presentation, one that sounds noticeably larger scale than when we substitute similarly priced alternatives such as the Chord Company RumourX and Ecosse ES2. The sound is impressively detailed, uncovering low-level information and arranging it in a stable and cohesive manner. All of this makes for an easy-going balance that makes the Rocket 22 suitable for a wide range of systems.
