LONG-GRAIN COPPER/PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER:
Type 8 uses a carefully finessed combination of Long-Grain Copper (LGC) and extremely high purity Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC)
conductors. All conductors are solid, which prevents strand interaction, a
major source of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can
be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor,
and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. LGC has fewer oxides within
less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.
The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC further eliminates harshness and greatly
increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers.
CIRCULAR-ARRAY GEOMETRY: The
relationship between conductors defines some of a cable’s basic electrical
values (capacitance and inductance). Independent of these values, the
relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly effect
performance. The circular-spiral construction of Type 8 allows for
significantly better dynamic contrast and clarity than if the same conductors
were run in parallel or as multiple twisted pairs.
SPREAD SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY (SST):
Any single size or shape of conductor has a characteristic distortion
profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid round or tubular)
have the fewest discontinuities, each size still has a sonic signature. Type 8
uses a precise combination of four different size conductors in order to
significantly reduce the audibility of these character flaws.
BIWIRING: When possible, running
separate conductors or separate cables to the treble and bass “halves” of a
speaker will considerably reduce distortion. The large magnetic fields
associated with bass energy modulate a cable’s electrical properties, thereby
modulating/distorting the treble … similar to the way waves in the ocean make
it much harder to swim. Type 8 may be used as a Single-BiWire cable by
preparing Type 8 with four connections on the speaker end.. For maximum performance
though, use two pair of Type 8 or a Double-BiWire set.
DIRECTIONS: The “breakouts” on
either end of Type 8 are marked “Speaker End” or Amp End.” Please use cables in
the direction indicated.
