Apply established engineering and physics principles to create an audio cable capable of conveying an electromagnetic waveform without errors or other alterations.
Note the difference between this goal and that of producing the best sounding cable possible. The latter implies subjective listening tests were performed so that those conducting the evaluations could determine which cable design sounded the best to their ears, with their equipment, their source material, and in their listening environment. The opinions, priorities, and biases of those performing the listening tests may or may not match those of the end user.
An audio cable that accomplishes this goal will allow an audio system to most faithfully and accurately record or reproduce the live musical event.
