Overview

Our take on the AudioQuest Evergreen

AudioQuest believes good cable design is all about damage control. In AQ's view, the perfect cable would be one that adds nothing — no noise, no distortion — to the original signal. Even AudioQuest's affordable Evergreen cables embody this philosophy. They bring together some of AQ's most advanced designs and materials, for excellent sound quality from a single joined cable that's relatively thin and lightweight.

AudioQuest believes good cable design is all about damage control. In AQ's view, the perfect cable would be one that adds nothing — no noise, no distortion — to the original signal. Even AudioQuest's affordable Evergreen cables embody this philosophy. They bring together some of AQ's most advanced designs and materials, for excellent sound quality from a single joined cable that's relatively thin and lightweight.

Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors

One of the most important materials that goes into an audio cable is the metal used for its conductors — the parts of the cable that actually carry the signal. Unlike lesser cables, AudioQuest's Evergreen features conductors made from solid Long-Grain Copper rather than stranded metal, for improved performance and better transparency.

Advanced cable geometry

While many cables use a single path for both the ground and shield, AudioQuest uses a design they call "double-balanced asymmetrical geometry." This design separates the ground and shield paths for clean, quiet performance.

Cold-welded, gold-plated connectors

All the details of the cable's construction are well thought-out. For instance, the Evergreen's connectors are cold-welded, rather than soldered, which eliminates a common source of distortion found in many other audio cables.

This cable is equipped with dual RCA connectors at each end. Mini-to-mini and mini-to-RCA versions are also available.

Product Highlights:

  • length: 2 meters/6.6 feet
  • stereo cable with dual RCA connectors at each end
  • solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors help improve performance
  • foamed polyethylene insulation for low distortion
  • metal-layer NDS (Noise Dissipation System) shields against RF interference
  • double-balanced asymmetrical cable geometry separates the ground and shield for quieter performance
  • cold-welded, gold-plated RCA plugs feature a solder-less design for lower distortion
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • 2-Meter stereo RCA cable

M from Fruita, CO on 4/9/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great advice and direction from the online advisor made it an easy decision and process. Delivery was as said, the price was fair. The product is good quality and fits the posts firmly. Not sure if the sound quality was that noticeable on my system. But, it has cut way down to almost no times of static and the large variances in volumes. I think I will order more to replace the cheaper cables I have had a long time. I would recommend Crutchfield and this product.

Pros: good quality and fits the post firmly and helps to clean and neaten up the cable maze.

Cons: not a con, just an idea. If they came in different colors it would be easier to identify each one of the components

Chuck from Cibolo, TX on 2/25/2018

Made the CD music sound so much clearer than with the RCA cables I had connection my CD player to my receiver.

Pros: Awesome quality of the product. My CD music never sounded so good.

Cons: none

Nice single-wire concept.

Wayne from Saint Augustine, FL on 2/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these because you can't go wrong with anything from Crutchfield, I've had good experience with AudioQuest, and most importantly, my wife hates wires. The single wire construction makes them easier to conceal. The lack of "spread" is not an issue and makes for a nice, tidy connection. I'll probably order another one to replace a double wire connection on another component. I trust they will hold up over time. Recommend.

Pros: Nice tidy, connection; nice fit

Cons: None

No noticeable improvement at all

Tom from Appleton, WI on 1/19/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Average at best, if that. Absolutely no discernible improvement over the generic RCA cables the CD player came with. In that sense it is a complete waste of money, I mostly wanted something that is built better to last longer until I get the cables that I really want - which are not Audioquest.

Pros: Reputable brand, good quality construction of product, cheap cost

Cons: Absolutely no discernible improvement over the generic RCA cables the CD player came with. In that sense it is a complete waste of money, I mostly wanted something that is built better to last longer until I get the cables that I really want - which are not Audioquest.

AudioQuest Evergreens

Mike from Millbury, MA on 1/9/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these Evergreens to rid my new turntable (also from Crutchfield) of an annoying hum when the volume was turned up. Mission accomplished, the hum is gone. I decided to buy these after other readers said these cables addressed their hum/feedback issues.

Pros: Got rid of my hum/feedback issue

Cons:

Great cables for the price

John from Portage, MI on 12/11/2017

Great cables for the price - very low noise for my turntable. Definitely better than the cables that came with my unit.

Pros: Looks good + works great.

Cons: None

Raymond from Alexandria, VA on 12/10/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nicely built cable, a lot thinner than I expected, and pretty flexible. Purchased to replace some DIY work I did with replacing a vintage turntable cable with patch cable. Im currently using the Evergreen cable to run from my preamp to a set of powered speakers. Slight improvement on audio quality but Im still working on improving my signal chain. Note: If you have left and right rca terminals more than 3 inches away from each other, these are not your cable. My preamp terminals are 3 inches apart and these cables barely fit. Otherwise they are great.

Pros: -Nicely built - thin, but still sound great - flexible

Cons: - the "y" connection may limit your use. Be sure your RCA connections are close.

Chip from Edwards, CO on 11/1/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These AudioQuest Evergreen cables are great wires. I'm using them to replace wires in a Dual 1219 turntable I've had since 1969. After I put the AudioQuest wire in place, I noticed that I'm using 40% less gain. Nice strong signal down a 100' line. Thanks for offering such a superior product. I'll be buying more equipment from you. Chip

Pros: Nice strong signal, tough construction which should last longer than I'll be alive. Whoever ends up with my stereo should get many years use from them.

Cons: AudioQuest wires are a bit expense, but are well worth it.

Glenn from Boca Raton, FL on 6/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was hoping that these cables would be a little beefier. As others have stated that they are thin, I didn't realize how thin until I seen them. They sound fine as I am using them to connect my emerald physics B.O.M. to my pre-amp through the tape monitor loop and I already have a maze of wires back there as it is ,so these 2' cables work great

Pros: They come in short lengths like 2' and thats all I need. Also like that the left and right channel is single cable

Cons: They are hard to grip when you have to remove them

Bought three sets now to connect a Music Hall turntable to a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 ADC, then from there, to my iMac27 then to a a Schiit DAC and Schiit headphone amplifier out to Audio Engine 5+ and an 8" AudEng SUB. Learning Pure Music and Pure Vinyl to get some of my late Fathers' vinyl into the digital realm so I can listen at night and on the road and not have to flip it every 30 minutes!!! I also have two of their USB cables to help make things hook up

Pros: Sweet cables at a very fair price. Compliments from the wife on how nice the room/cabling looks (or lack of cabling looks) !!!!!!

Cons: Zero - none- Zero

Very Well Built

John R. from Gaffney, SC on 4/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well built, nice looking sound fine, But these cables are solid and can be used on tape decks, CD plyers and other things that the connections are very close together. I got them to connect a crossover for my sub-woofer and the connections are apx. 3" apart, NO GO. The ends are at a fixed separation and can not be split. The down thing is the green color has red and a silvery white print, very hard to see in poor light that is found behind a system.

Pros: Well built, sound good, look good also

Cons: Hard to see print, ends at a fixed distance

I don't claim to be an audiophile but I had a slight hum with my pro-Ject carbon dc and my Vincent preamp with a Marshall Woburn speaker but the hum is gone after switching out the $6 standard RCA cables with these AQ evergreens. Worked for me.

Pros:

Cons:

Well built cable!

Scott from Omaha, NE on 4/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a very well built cable! I used it to connect my Marantz SR6011 AVR to my Marantz MM7025 2 channel amp to run my front Klipsch R-28F's so I could run a 7.2.4 Atmos setup. The cable packaging is great. The cable itself is of superior build quality. 1 thing that is not mention on the product description is that the cable is directional. Listening to old music is like I've heard it for the 1st time. Bottom line is the cable is worth the few extra bucks when you're putting together a nice home theater/music room!

Pros: Great quality, great packaging, excellent signal tranfer

Cons: Little pricy

Quality Cables

Anonymous from North Wilkesboro, NC on 3/26/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality made cables. There was an improvement in clarity over regular off the rack cables. How much improvement you'll see depends on the equipment you're using.

Pros: Quality construction, gold plated connectors.

Cons: If the RCA jacks on your equipment are far apart, these cables won't work for you. The left and right channel wires only have 2 inches between the end of the RCA plug and the block that fastens the wires together into one single cable.

Nothing special

Stephen from San Clemente, CA on 3/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality constructed cable but barely separates at the ends. If your LR RCA's are more than 2" apart, look elsewhere. No audioquest RCA will fit (or if it does, it will be pulling on the jacks.) If you're set on AQ brand cables and these will not fit, buy two sub woofer cables. For sound quality, they sound good. But admittedly, I don't notice a difference between these and my generic cables. Any differences that I can hear are so small that I can convince myself whether or not I really notice them. For reference, I'm using an Oppo 203 to play a standard CD through an Integra DRX-3 to Emotiva A300 amp to Focal 706's.

Great value and very good quality overall. I have always used Audio quest cables and another major brand that I won't mention, but I have to say I have never been disappointed in their product. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great cable at a fantastic price.

Pros:

Cons:

nice rca connectors that made a diffference

Everett from Saint Agatha Maine on 1/31/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The best way to describe the difference is to say these cables cleared up what I would call muddiness ,also the most important thing is that the cables are not made of large insulation which can put too much force on the rca connectors which can lead to bad solder joints. They are made from small flexible material. They made a difference I could hear with the new speakers I ordered.

Pros: Better Sound

Cons: none

William from WA on 9/4/2016

Great value on this interconnect. If you're wondering if you should use the cable that comes with your gear, try one of these inexpensive AQ's and you'll see why a market exists. I'm running these from a Squeezebox to Audioengine A2's and noticed better clarity and sound staging than cheap cord.

Pros: Midrange clarity, sound staging

Cons: None

BOPO from Marietta, GA on 8/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm a cable snob, I'll admit it. Most of my system (and recording studio) is cabled in top shelf Mogami and Canare wire. So this time around, when installing a new turntable/pre-amp I thought I'd try something different. I purchased these AudioQuest Evergreens to replace some older Monster 250's when I upgraded to a U-Turn Audio Turntable and their matching Pluto Pre-amp. The difference in sound quality was immediately apparent! I've got a really revealing system with Bryston power amps and Quested monitors. On a pure analog source (like a turntable) you really need some wire that's not going to get in the way or cause any degradation. Upgrading to the Evergreens opened up the sound. Smooth low end, silky high end. It's almost like getting closer to the music. I found myself comparing several prints of the same recording and actually being able to quantify the differences. Well done AudioQuest - I'm a fan!

Pros: Excellent build quality, very affordable, noticable sound quality improvement!

Cons: They are green.:)

Flexible cable and clean sound.

Vick from Santa Fe, N.M. on 6/6/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These cables are flexible and easy to maneuver from one piece of equipment and connect to another. The sound is clean and natural. They provide a noticeable improvement over the standard red and white cables that are included with many pieces of equipment. The manufacturer offers them in various lengths to suit ones' needs.

Pros: Flexible and easy to connect. Natural sound.

Cons: An additional cost compared to the cheap red and white cables often included with stereo components.

better than the stock jacks

Swaggy J from Richmond, VA on 5/25/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were recommended by Crutchfield staff and did the job. A nice, if somewhat subtle, upgrade from the stock cables that came with the unit. The price is good and it made a noticeable difference in sound performance, mostly in boosting the input levels to my integrated amp.

Pros: price quality

Cons: none

Entry level to clean audio

Audiobahn808 from Hawaii on 10/19/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cable has always served me well. It was my first entry level cable many years ago and I still find myself getting it. Great sounding cable at an affordable price and should one be looking to upgrade from this their better off getting silver conductors because any other solid copper cable like this will make absolutely no difference being that this cable is of high quality copper. I believe the stranded vs solid conductors and the copper vs silver to make the most difference in audiophile cables.

Pros: Solid built quality, sound great, solid conductor.

Cons: None

I'll never buy another pair of these! The geniuses who decided to make the connectors (which connect very tightly) slick and smooth are idiots! You can't hardly get a grip on these to pull them out! They should have been made of a rubbery type material or they could have made them with a ridge to grab onto, any number of ways other than a hard, slick, smooth surface that offers no grip whatsoever!

I can say that I don't hear anything that I don't like with them connecting things up.

Pros: Solid construction, nice length.

Great cable that doesnt fit the jacks with an iron grip.sometimes you will get cables that fit so tight you cant get them off and it breaks your ends(monster cables especially!) these look as good as they perform.they are a little pricey compared to other brands but if your looking for clarity in your mids and highs,dont buy high end componets and cheap out on the signal cable.

Pros: Great look and easy to use,clarity is top notch

Cons: none in my book

AudioQuest Evergreen

Preamp cable from Boston, MA on 6/19/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well priced and well packed! I was very surprised with how flexible the cord was. No more thick, large unruly cables for me! These deliver the same if not better sound with less bulk. My new cord of choice for sure, these are wicked awesome!

Pros: They replaced the standard black and white "stock" turntable cord. It made a huge difference for very little money.

Cons: would like to see a lower price so I can change out all of my Monster cables.

Audioquest Evergreen Purchase

Tee from Pennsylvania on 6/5/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have the cable between my CD Player (Yamaha CDS-300) and my amplifier (NAD 356BEE). While I do not buy into the idea that cables can make your music sound better, it did provide a faster access to my 16GB USB Thumb Drive I insert in the USB port of the CD Player. The thumb drive has around 3K songs and anytime you turn the CD player on or insert the thumb drive, it has to read all the song titles, etc first before it plays. The amount of time (saved) is probably only a minute or two but it was a noticeable difference. Bottom line, this cable transfers data faster. It is worthy to note, however, that the Rocketfish cable was longer. In any case, I would advise anyone to spend the extra money for a cable such as this vs. Rocketfish. No brainer.

Pros: Quicker access to the data on my USB drive. Obviously superior quality vs. Rocketfish; worth the extra money.

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I gave this five stars because I don't know how else to rate it. It certainly connects well and everything sounds good, but I also upgraded my CD player and never tried connecting the old, generic cable. The instructions specify that it should be connected according to in and out arrows on the connectors (out from the CD player and in to the amp). I did that, of course, and there are no problems.

Pros: Seems to be fine but I really haven't compared it to any other cable.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Great cable!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I didn't expect that it could noticeably improve the sound but it definitely did. The more expensive cables Sydney are better but the difference is not that big.

Pros: Clear sound, price

Cons: None

Great Audioquest cable!

JayB from Wichita, KS on 4/15/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are great cables. They seem to be vary well built and the sound quality is excellent. They are not the most expensive cables Audioquest makes, but everything seems put-together very nicely and they have a very smooth, natural sound. I purchased several for my system and am very happy! I highly recommend these.

Pros: Build quality is great; sound is smooth and natural. Price is excellent.

Cons: None!

WORK GREAT

These cables work great with my Audioengine A5+ speakers the cables are flexable and are well make. I have other Audio Quest cables and all of them proform well.You can notice a diffrence in sound with these's Evergreen cables.compared to cheap one's.

Pros: EXCELLENT CABLES, VERY CLEAN SOUND

Cons: NONE

AQ Evergreen

PhillipG from Catoosa, OK on 4/9/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Evergreen cables don't seen to add or subtract from the sound at all. The "less damage" philosophy certainly applies here. They appear well made and are flexible enough to twist and bend to make the connection even with the short 0.6meter length.

Pros: Nice tight connections at the RCA ends.

Cons: None noted.

Significant Improvement over no-name cable

Larry from Atlanta, GA on 2/7/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this cable to connect Musical Fidelity V-DAC II to V-CAN II. The RCA plugs fit both sides quite well - not too firm (but quite strong) and not too lose. This was quite a difference from a supposedly high-grade, quite expensive Monster cable I used once, where fit was so tight that I thought I would break my components. Trying to adjust that cable I broke off a few pieces from RCA plug so I just threw the cable away. For the record, my upgrade included not only this cable but also AudioQuest USB cable and Musical Fidelity V-PSU II so the effect was cumulative. Before the upgrade, I was already quite happy with the sound from the V-DAC II/V-CAN II but knowing a good reputation of AudioQuest cables, I decided to upgrade the cable as well, considering the price was very reasonable and if nothing else I would be sure I was not loosing any performance. After installing AudioQuest RCA/USB cables and V-PSU II I turned on my system and tried to listen to Pink Floyd "Wish You Were Here" through Beyerdynamics DT990/600 Ohm headphones. In short, I was shocked to the point I did not recognize my system! Sound became so sharp, detailed, and crystal clear with very strong and accurate bass that I felt like I was listening to completely different DAC and headphone amplifier! Few times I heard sound passages, loud and clear, that I never heard before - on recording that I listened to like 1000+ times. Great product, well worth the price!

Pros: Excellent quality, just right fit when connecting RCA plugs. Significant improvement in frequency response, upper mids to highs. More overall clarity. Much better lows but I would probably attribute that to V-PSU II upgrade in my case.

Cons: None

Better than Monster 400i

Scott from MN on 1/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I connected the 2' Evergreen between an older 24bit/96KHz CD/DVD player and integrated amp going to Polk A3 speakers. They were a huge step up from the free red/white cables. The highs were clearer and sounds were separate and distinct. I have to assume difference was from attenuation from capacitance in the free cables. The L/R channel separation seems to have improved too but this could be just because the highs are clearer. I also purchased a Monster 400i cable ($31 on sale) for comparison and although it had much better low and mid throughput, I was disappointed in the highs with the 400i so I have to say that the Evergreen worked better with my setup. I compensated with a 4dB boost in bass and loudness for movies and used CD direct + line straight for most music.

Pros: Very clear and distinct highs.

Cons: The low/mid throughput of the Monster 400i was better, possibly because of a larger conductor with lower impedance in my system. I would like a cable that has the high frequency response of the Evergreen balanced with the low/mid of the 400i so I could use the CD direct setting for everything.

Excellent prodcut

I opted for what I thought were pricey cables but I am so glad I did. The difference in the sound is unbelievable!. I highly recommend. Plus the delivery was so fast! Worth every penny to have such great, clean audio.

A Logical Alternative to Manufacturer-Supplied Cables

Kirigiri from Palo Alto, CA on 9/21/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A/B comparisons between this Evergreen cable and the RCA cables that manufacturers provide with their audio products reveals that spending roughly $30 on the Evergreen cable is worth the money. A/B comparisons between this Evergreen cable and my friend's $300 total audiophile cable revealed no distinguishable characteristics, by either my friend or me. Following that A/B comparison, my friend asked me the brand of the Evergreen cable, so he could buy one for himself.

Pros:

Cons:

Good Cables

I just replaced all of my 25 year old RCA cables with these Evergreens. Old cables were Nakamichi "top of line at one time". Yes I could tell a differance in sound quality.

Pros: Recommend highly....

Cons: NONE

Features

Evergreen Series Stereo RCA Cable: The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo RCA cable is terminated by a gold-plated male stereo RCA connectors on each end. The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo RCA cable is available in the following lengths.

  • 0.6 meter (2')
  • 1 meter (3' 4")
  • 2 meter (6' 7")
  • 3 meter (10')
  • 5 meter (16' 5")
  • 8 meter (26' 3")
  • 12 meter (39' 5")

Solid Long-Grain Copper Conductors (LGC): Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Evergreen's solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.

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. Evergreen 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. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.

Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS): 100% shield coverage is easy; preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.

Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry: Purposely designed for single-ended applications, Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance.

Cold-Welded, Gold-Plated Plugs: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion.

Directional: Arrows on the connectors indicate the preferred signal path from the source component to the input.
