Over the last 500 years, Mexico’s silver industry has provided almost one-third of the world’s silver. Historically, Mexico has been the world’s largest silver producer, being overtaken by Peru for the 1st time in 2009.
According to the US Geological Survey, Mexico is the world’s 2nd largest producer of silver, producing 3 500 metric tons of silver in 2010, slightly down from 3 550 tons in 2009.
Historically, the majority of silver has been discovered at the Mexican Silver Belt, La Faja de Plata, which extends for approximately 800 km along the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains
So here in Mexico, we know about Silver, we also have the best Silversmiths , true artisans of the craft.
Antonio Plasencia comes from a family of renown Jewelers and Silversmiths, he also happens to be an Audiophile, so he endeavor to craft the World's finest Silver Cables at very realistic prices.
In order to keep the price realistic, our Cables may lack luxurious packaging, fancy pouch bags, wood crafted boxes, serial numbers engraved in precious metal tags, etc.
But they do not lack musicality. In fact these may be the finest cables in the world on performance/price ratio.
1. Why these cables are different from the rest?
We do not make overly complicated cables, we do not claim outlandish technology breakthroughs and we do not advertise bogus mathematical geometries as the secret for our cables.
Instead we take a minimalist approach to cable design, focusing on build and materials quality.
2. How are they made?
Our philosophy is to make high-quality Stress-Free Silver Audio Cables at reasonable prices, we focus on meticulously hand craft each cable, each interconnect is made of pure solid silver strains, carefully hand braided and dampened with an Polyolefin and damping material to reduce micro-phonics.
This method ensures quiet, clean yet transparent, detail open highs, rich mids and clean, well controlled deep bass.
3.What Plugs and Solder are used?
We use Mundorf MSolder® Silver/Gold that boosts the advantages of silver solder by adding purest Gold which also lowers the melting point and ensures the outstanding sound properties of silver wires.
For RCA Plugs we use custom - made Japanese nickle /copper / gold plated plugs
XLR plugs are Neutrik, which have been proven superior to all others.
4.Why Silver ? Most Hi-End Audio Cables are Copper...
Conductivity is a measure of the ability of a substance to conduct electricity. When the resistance is low, the conductivity is high. Copper is the standard by which electrical materials are rated and conductivity ratings are expressed as a relative measurement to copper.
These ratings will frequently be expressed such as "28 IACS". IACS is the abbreviation for International Annealed Copper Standard and the number preceding "IACS" is the percentage of conductivity a material has relative to copper, which is considered to be 100% conductive. This does not, of course, mean that copper has no resistance, but rather that it is the standard by which other materials are compared. The higher the % IACS, the more conductive the material is.
This standard is based on an annealed copper wire having a density of 8.89 g/cm3, 1 meter long, weighing 1 gram, with a resistance of 0.15328 ohms.
This standard is assigned the value 100 at 20°C (68°F). Here are some examples of conductivity values for a few common materials.

Copper is exceeded only by silver among the materials commonly used for electrical applications. Silver is more expensive, hence very few companies endeavor to offer Silver Cables in their production.
