The Evergreen Point Floating Bridge crosses Lake Washington and connects Seattle, Washington (USA) with the area around the city of Bellevue. Since its opening in 1963, the bridge is the longest floating bridge in the world at 2,285 meters. Among other things, the structure consists of 33 prestressed concrete pontoons with an average length of 110 meters and a width of 18 meters. MASSIVE CONDUCTS OF LONG-CRISTALLINE COUPER (LGC): Solid conductors prevent distortions caused by mutual interference of the strands. Evergreen's solid long-crystal copper (LGC) provides a more balanced, clearer sound than cables using the usual oxygen-free, highly conductive copper (OFHC - Oxygen-Free-High-Conductivity). OFHC is a general specification of the metal industry that considers "losses" without any consideration of distortion. LGC contains less oxides in the conductive material, less impurities, fewer grain boundaries and offers significantly better performance. ISOLATION FROM POLYETHYLENE FOAM: Any solid material adjacent to a conductor becomes part of an incomplete electrical network. Wire insulation and PCB material absorb energy (losses). Part of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Evergreen uses air-filled polyethylene foam insulation for both conductors because air absorbs almost no energy and polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to the air in the polyethylene foam, it causes significantly less blurring effects than other materials. METAL LAMINATION NOISE DISPIPATION SYSTEM (NDS): Achieving 100% shielding is easy. To prevent "trapped" RF interference from affecting the ground reference of the device, the AudioQuest Noise Dissipation System is required. It prevents most RF interference from reaching the ground plane of the device. DOUBLE-BALANCED ASYMMETRICAL GEOMETRY: Designed specifically for single-ended applications, Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry provides less impedance to ground for a fuller, more dynamic sound. While many single-ended cables use a single path for both ground and shielding, double-balanced designs separate both for a cleaner, quieter performance. COLD-WELDED, GOLDED RCA CONNECTORS: This connector design allows for connections without solder - which is a common source of interference. Because the ferrules are stamped rather than machined, the metal can be selected for low distortion rather than machinability.
