LYRE SILVER/TEFLON 8 AWG Speaker Cables 8' PURE RED COPPER SILVER PLATED Spades / Bananas or Combo Your Choice These are the best connectors available at any price Superb Lyre bird, (Menura novaehollandiae) Famous for its extraordinary ability render with great fidelity any sound, unmatched in vocal repertoire and mimicry. 4 Runs of 8 AWG Silver Plated Copper Aero-Space Wire Cotton Sleeving Termination: SPADES: Sized Right: All Furez "Sized Right" speaker cable connectors are designed for specific speaker cable gauges and have varying internal diameters to maximize contact of the speaker wire strands within the bore of the speaker cable connector. When a connector is properly sized to the speaker cable gauge, the resulting connection will be optimized for both conductivity and strength. Sizing of crimped connectors is very important and the connector must be sized to match the wire gauge. Maximized Signal Conductivity: The Sized Right feature of the SP8 spade speaker connectors is a significant factor in maximizing signal conductivity but there are other significant factors to consider as well. • Solid Single Piece Conductive Path: The Furez line of spade speaker wire connectors are designed to have a single continuous conductive path from the wire to the end of the spade. This eliminates the added contact resistance associated with the common multi-piece design. • Truly High Conductive Core Materials: The Furez TST Bananas utilize C14500 Tellurium 93% IACS Copper and the SP series spades utilize C11000 100% IACS Copper which are the highest conductivity coppers available for their respective designs. Materials like C36000 Brass, C54400 Phosphor Bronze, C17500 Beryllium Copper are the typical copper alloys used and all have low conductivities in the range of 19% to 40% IACS. Find out more about Copper Alloys at www.Copper.org • Plating or Lack There of: - Bare Copper Non-Plated Connectors: The use of bare non-plated copper connectors provides the natural high conductivity connection of a bare speaker cable termination without the safety hazard of shorting wire strands. Bare electronic grade copper will not turn green or oxidize heavily under normal conditions and some simple handling practices will keep you copper looking and performing quite well for many years. - Direct Silver Plated Connectors: The only plating option we currently offer is a 5um thick direct Silver plating without an under layer ensuring the maximum conductivity possible. Silver is the highest conductivity metal at 104% IACS and also has the lowest contact resistance of any metal so why not use it. With proper handling silver plating will out perform any other speaker connector plating. BANANAS: Sized Right: All Furez "Sized Right" speaker cable connectors are designed for specific speaker cable gauges and have varying internal diameters to maximize contact of the speaker wire strands within the bore of the speaker cable connector. When a connector is properly sized to the speaker cable gauge, the resulting connection will be optimized for both conductivity and strength. Sizing of crimped connectors is very important and the connector must be sized to match the wire gauge. Maximized Contact Area: Our TST "Tensioned Split Tube" Banana Plugs are designed with a a split tube design at the top and bottom of the banana plug. These splits in the tube allow the banana plug to conform to the inner shape of the mating binding post for the entire length of insertion. The result of this intimate mating of the TST banana plug to binding post is increased signal transfer efficiency. Optimized Contact Pressure: The TST "Tensioned Split Tube" Banana Plugs feature a solid color coded silicone elastomeric tensioning element. This tensioning element provides the spring force required to enable the use of soft high conductivity copper. Traditional banana plug designs rely on the inherent spring force of harder low conductivity copper alloys to provide the required contact pressure to make the banana plug connection. Unfortunately, the copper alloys that have sufficient inherent spring tension also suffer from poor conductivity. The simple and effective design approach of the Tensioned Split Tube (TST) Banana allows our connector to be constructed of C14500 Tellurium 93% IACS Copper. Maximized Signal Conductivity: The Sized Right, Maximized Contact Area and Optimized Contact Pressure features of the TST Banana plugs are significant factors in maximizing signal conductivity but there are other significant factors to consider as well. • Solid Single Piece Conductive Path: The Furez line of banana speaker wire connectors are designed to have a single continuous conductive path from the wire to the end of the plug.

Performance approaching the very best and most expensive audio cables on the market, for a fraction of the price. Well below what audiophiles normally expect to pay for superbly engineered and hand crafted components. Best Value of any cables available. First of all, there is no other cable on the market at this price point that even comes close to these. No hype, No snake oil No voodoo. Pure, simple, outstanding cables with performance approaching the very best and most expensive audio cables on the market, for a fraction of the price. Well below what audiophiles normally expect to pay for superbly engineered and hand crafted components. Best Value of any cables available. The majority of the high definition speaker cables (typically over $1,000 per pair) are made from silver conductors with Teflon insulation. These expensive materials generally are thought to sound the best. Prices for these premium speaker cables are high for these reasons: The materials ( silver and Teflon) and the labor-intensive processes, both are costly. Then, the manufacturer expends enormous resources on advertising, to maintain their brand." These advertising expenses must be added to the final product cost. Also, speaker cables are not sold directly to end users. Instead, manufacturers sell to stereo dealers who resell the product to end users, after adding their markup. Dealers typically charge twice their cost. They must earn this amount, as profit, in order to survive, because they, too, have necessary high costs- rent, advertising, salaries and sales commissions, business taxes, etc. Let’s analyze the distribution of funds paid by the end user for a pair of 8-foot silver and Teflon speaker cables from a name brand manufacturer: Cost of Materials $ ..200. Assembly Labor Costs $ ..175. Administrative and Sales Costs $ ..125. Advertising Costs $..225. Manufacturer's Profit $..275. Dealer Mark-Up $1,000. TOTAL COST TO END USER $2,000 All my cables are made by hand by me one at a time, I'm a small operation working at my home, with a small markup (40%) including labor.Unlike large cable manufactures which have a large overhead and typically charge 16 - 20 times cost. My mission is to the finest audio components, of the finest materials, at a reasonable price. Conductors: The wire is MIL spec aerospace stranded silver plated copper wire, silver being the best conductor of electricity. Teflon insulation is very close to air resulting in very low capacitance which makes the cable suitable for any audio component as it will not contribute to instability, or absorb the signal. Teflon insulation is very thin resulting in a cable that is lightweight and flexible. This cable will not stress the jacks on your components, but is very large gauge. This configuration provides incredible imaging and detail across the entire audio spectrum, deep, tight, powerful bass, sweet transparent midrange smooth and linear high frequency response. This cable provides incredibly low resistance and is extremely flexible considering the AWG. 4 Runs of 8 AWG Silver Plated pure copper American Mil-spec AEROSPACE wire Silver-plated copper with 40 micro inches minimum coating thickness. Stranding 133/29 Insulation Material: Teflon (PTFE) as a dielectric is very close to air. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE This heavy-wall wire, rated at 1,000 volts rms or 3,000 volts DC, saves both size and weight compared with many other insulated wires of the same rating. Suitable for Broad frequency use at elevated temperatures in high-reliability programs where electrical and thermal stability are important.
