CABLES

The most fascinating and controversial topic of the last thirty years of life in our industry.

We assume that the cables are not an " equalizer " as many claim . They are able to make improvements (or worsening ) of varying amounts but that almost never justify the exorbitant cifre that some enterprising manufacturers require .

Other irrefutable fact is that no cables will mail " add " but only " subtract "

Simplifying in extreme way the components of a cable we can say that these are two:

the conductor and the insulation

These will then be molded into thousands of different shapes and configurations, but the substance remains this .

For the conductors has been experienced of all, in the order copper, silver, gold, aluminum , palladium, platinum and various mixtures of these materials

One of the characteristics of silver that seems universally accepted is that the sound of this particolarmete is open , or the medium-high frequencies seem to be preferred in the conduct of the signal, or perhaps I should say that the low and mid-low frequencies of the audio spectrum are attenuated.

For this reason, some manufacturers have ventured into the mix of materials ranging from copper & silver, gold & silver , and so on . Mundorf has realized an alloy containing 99 % silver and the 1 % gold, and this is used for both the construction of cables but also inside their famous capacitors .

Copper is used by most of the manufacturers, in many degrees of purity N until PCOCC that copper is the best obtainable today .

Some manufacturers have " married " aluminum, that while placing in a disadvantageous position as regards the electrical resistance compared to the other metals mentioned above , it seems that in some configurations can give excellent sonic results .

Palladium , platinum and others are rarely used because of the high costs of production.

Regarding the insulators , in principle, are used polyethylene, polypropylene, some mixtures silicone and PTFE (Teflon ), the latter with insulating characteristics , mechanical and resistance temica truly superlative ; but several artisan products do not disdain the natural cotton and even silk.

What has been written to provide a small and personal views.

The philosophy that distinguishes Audiogears , and that is followed by substantially all of the treated products, is based on a few basic points:

put a product catalog only if there is a real reason for being in that particular article

mattere catalog products only after they have been deeply tested in several respects sound and constructive

put in the catalog products whose value is the maximum attainable in the respective category

try to offer a price competitive market in absolute terms and where not possible, at least in line with foreign competition

The easiest way to satisfy these two points is to have a direct relationship with manufacturers and bring the material directly to the public , jumping as much as possible intermediate steps in the distribution chain .

Over time, those who know me are aware , I was the first to import Furutech brand in Italy ,serious Japanese manufacturer specializing in cables and connectors, but recently also in accessories, which produces cables truly remarkable level . Unfortunately, the cost of a regular distribution , desired by the company, they did levitate prices, making significantly less attractive the range of cables of this brand .

I found a worthy replacement in Ramm
