Silver Breeze™ Design Overview and History:The extraordinary sensitivity of high end phono cartridges demands nothing less than the very finest phono cable. From its inception in late 1996 Silver Audio's Silver Breeze™ has been a breath of fresh air for analogue purists world-wide. The Breeze was designed to be more than just the most accurate phono lead in the world. The concept was the cable would also function as a much needed master grounding system for the entire path from cartridge to input stage. Though the basic design concept of the Breeze remained relatively unchanged over the years, the shielding system has recently been redesigned to improve its anti-microphonic properties. The current iteration of the Silver Breeze™ can be identified by a blue-metallic body (pictured).
The outstanding performance of the Silver Breeze™ is a tribute to both its extravagant signal core design and its elaborate shielding system. Much of the noise that plagues high gain phono equipment can be inductive in nature against which typical shielding is powerless. The Silver Breeze™ employs a proprietary method of shielding electro-magnetic interference as well typical capacitively coupled noise i.e. RFI and ESI. This crucial feature of the Silver Breeze™ assures the purity of the most delicate signal voltages conveyed by its air-gapped, solid core, pure silver litz signal network. For the ultimate in sonic purity the bomb-proof, 100% coverage, low impedance shielding system is completely independent of signal ground and shunts directly to chassis ground. This prevents signal ground from being modulated by external interference while ensuring all shield-grounds from cartridge to chassis go directly to ground and at one potential only.
