    Meaning "Big River" in Athabaskan, the Yukon River starts with the Llewellyn Glacier as its source in British Columbia, and empties into Alaska's Bering Sea. It may have been the first immigration route for North America's first indigenous humans, and was certainly the principle means of travel during the 1896-1903 Klondike Gold Rush. Paddle-wheel riverboats continued as the dominant form of transportation along the river until the 1950s when the Klondike Highway was completed. King Salmon from the Yukon River remain an elusive, but prized delicacy.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS: Perfect-Surface Copper+ has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion PSC+ conductor. PSC+ is manufactured by applying the same exceptional technology to an ultra-pure copper. The resulting sound quality is even more focused and simply less in the way. For over 30 years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by the huge leap in performance made possible with Perfect-Surface Technology. PSC+ simply outperforms all previously available copper metals at any price. All of Yukon's conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat dirty, harsh sound. Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Yukon's very clean sound.


    POLYETHYLENE AIR-TUBE 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. All of Yukon's conductors use PE Air-Tube Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. PE Air-Tube Insulation causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.


    CARBON-BASED 3-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. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.


    TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: The three conductors in "Triple-Balanced" Yukon cables ensure that whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior conductor.


    COLD-WELDED HANGING-SILVER DIRECTLY OVER PURE PURPLE COPPER 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 instead of machinability. Purple Copper offers a cleaner, clearer sound than the nickel-plated or OFHC metals commonly found in competing manufacturers' plugs.

    Under Great White Northern Lights

    In the summer of 2007, shortly after the release of their 6th album Icky Thump, The White Stripes headed north of their hometown of Detroit to embark on an ambitious journey across Canada. The plan was to play a show in every province and territory in Canada, from B.C. to Newfoundland to Nunavut. Having never done a tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog, from the ocean to the permafrost explains Jack White. We wanted to play out of the way towns that don't usually get shows, the shows are better, it's better for the people, it's a better experience, it's way more unique, something interesting is going to happen, hopefully.


    White called upon filmmaker Emmett Malloy to come and document this trek for the band. Malloy had directed videos for the band in the past, and seemed eager to hit the road with them. Equipped with a couple of 16mm cameras, and a few other documenting devices, the band and crew all headed north. The end result was Under Great White Northern Lights.


    Under Great White Northern Lights is a visual and emotional feature length film documenting The White Stripes making their way through Canada and culminating with their 10th Anniversary show in Nova Scotia. The film documents the band playing shows all over Canada; from local bowling alleys, to city buses, and onward to the legendary Savoy Theater for the 10th Anniversary show. A show that turned out to be the longest show the band had ever done on stage together.


    The film captures intimate moments of Jack and Meg both on and off stage as they travel through some of the most remote parts of the northern Yukon Territory. Along the way, they have some nice casual conversations about their ten years together, fire cannons, play some of their biggest songs together on stage, and even play a one note show. The cameras were there to capture every waking moment.


    What Northern Lights does best is document one of the biggest bands in the world, playing to local crowds in small towns. Some of these towns were so small that many of the locals had no idea who The White Stripes were, they just knew something big was going on in their town. This forced a band that had been together for a decade to go back to a place reminiscent of the first shows they ever played together. For the first time in a long time, no one knew who they were and they had to make a first impression with their music.


    The live footage captured in this film shows that Jack and Meg were clearly ready for this. Beyond the live footage, some of the films most memorable moments happen off-stage, offering an insightful look into the very private and complex world that is The White Stripes. It was shortly after this tour that The White Stripes cancelled their fall tour of the U.S., making the ten year anniversary a truly pivotal milestone for this legendary band.

    Nervous


    "Carefully crafted, perfectly balanced, addictively
    melodic" - ROCK-A-ROLLA


    "In cold surroundings, moments of warmth arrive
    with life-affirming brightness, and that's what
    makes Siskiyou's music so memorable" - BLURT


    Siskiyou returns with Nervous, a majestic album of carefully constructed art rock
    built around songwriter and lead singer Colin Huebert's stacked acoustic guitars
    and intimate, whispery vocals. Siskiyou's sound has been previously dubbed a sort
    of 'Northern Gothic', conjuring cold winds and the life-saving warmth of temporary
    shelters and tiny hearth fires. With Nervous, the band continues to push beyond
    the crisp lo-fi intimacy of its early work, and has forged its most confident and
    finely-crafted recording to date, moving fully into auteur and chamber-pop
    territory with a song cycle that brings to mind the meticulousness of mood and
    sonics found in recent work by PJ Harvey, Nick Cave and Tindersticks. Inflected
    by an anxious, sussurant restraint, Huebert's voice is supported by the falsetto
    backing vocal counterpoint and economical instrumentation of bandmates Erik
    Arnesen, Peter Carruthers and Shaunn Watt. Fans of the understated and
    underrated 1990s group Swell may also hear a welcome evocation of that group's
    acoustic guitar-driven simplicity and austere deployment of adornments.


    Following Siskiyou's excellent sophomore release Keep Away The Dead in 2011,
    Huebert became afflicted with a serious inner ear condition that eluded
    conventional diagnosis. While honouring a previously-scheduled songwriting
    residency in Dawson City, Yukon in winter 2012, Huebert found himself grappling
    with severe anxiety and an unwelcome interiority, engendered by hyperacusis and
    a house that felt utterly haunted. Intense chronic ear-ringing and panic attacks
    continued throughout the year, for which conventional medicine was unable to find
    any cause or effective treatment; Huebert began focusing on meditation, retreated to
    silence for a period, and then began rehearsing his new songs with the band at
    extremely low volumes. The songs on Nervous are shot through with the entirety of
    this experience: the literal feeling of being trapped in one's head and the physica-lpsychological
    feedback loop of debilitating anxiety; the lyrical themes and tense,
    whispered singing amidst tightly-wrought compositions and arrangements.


    Huebert found solace in new working methods within the controlled environment
    of studio-based production and composition, developing new sonic palettes and
    pursuing new avenues of instrumental arrangement and recording fidelity.
    Working with producer/engineer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett/Final Fantasy, Dusted,
    Austra) on most of Nervous, Siskiyou has emerged with by far its most assured,
    ambitious and authoritative recordings, while preserving the economy of elements,
    deft structures, and assiduous melodic deliberation for which the band has been
    rightly celebrated over its two previous albums. In charting escape paths from his
    disquieting cranial confinement, Huebert has very much succeeded in setting his
    songs out on an expansive canvas, while preserving a palpable sense of nervous
    interiority and quiet desperation at their heart.

    Originally named Disappointment for dashing Alexander Mackenzie's hope that it would lead to the Pacific rather than the Arctic Ocean, the Mackenzie River is Canada's largest, longest river system. Traversing 2,635 miles, it flows through a vast network of lakes, boreal forests and arctic tundra. Mackenzie's many tributaries cover portions of three provinces-British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan-and two territories, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. Known as "The Amazon of the North," Mackenzie's sparsely populated basin remains one of the great unspoiled natural areas in the world.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS: Perfect-Surface Copper+ has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication.

Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Mackenzie's very clean sound.


    NITROGEN-INJECTED HARD-CELL FOAM INSULATION: Nitrogen-Injected Hard-Cell Foam insulation is used exclusively in most of AudioQuest's video and digital audio cables. Similar to Foamed-PE, it is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. 'Hard' foam is used because the stiffness of the material allows the conductors in the cable to maintain the same relationship with each other along the full length of the cable, thus ensuring that the characteristic impedance of the cable is consistent.


    CARBON-BASED 3-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.
