Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry.Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy..
Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter..

In 1982 Sony gave us Perfect sound forever along with the
attitude that its just digital so all CD players sound the same.
That was disproved and qualitative differences between players
became accepted truth. Next came separate transport and DAC
combos which brought with it the attitude that all S/PDIF digital
audio cables sound the same... until that too became disproved.
Now the frontier has moved once again. Is digital audio really
just ones and zeros? Audiquest doesnt believe so and once youve
had a chance to listen to Cinnamon USB you wont think so
either... Solid 1.25% Silver Conductors: Solid conductors
eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid
silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency
applications like USB audio. These signals being such a high
frequency travel almost exclusively on the surface of the
conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver the
performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable but
priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly
cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality USB cables.
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.
Cinnamon USB uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation
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. Terminations: Precision gold-plated
plugs are carefully attached with the very best solder. Through
choice of flux and metallurgy AQ solder has been optimized to
make a low-distortion connection. The difference you hear between
solders is a result of connection quality. AQ solder does not
have a high silver content because the
