This is a one owner pair of Tara Labs Omega Gold speaker cables. The Omega Gold 8 ft. with Spades ($24,000.00 Retail) are a steal at this price. They are raved about by everyone who hears them.
The OMEGA Series of speaker cables represent the absolute state-of-the-art in loudspeaker cable design. No other speaker cable design can approach the performance standard of the OMEGA Series of speaker cables. The design starts with Rectangular Solid CoreÂ® conductors. The RSCÂ® conductors are specially shaped and frequency tuned to reveal more of the harmonic structure of the music than any other audio conductor. These conductors are helixed around unique PTFE (TeflonÂ®) tubes. The tubes within the OMEGA speaker cable vary in size and total conductor count. The conductors are positioned around the wall of the air-tube without the need for extra dielectric/plastic materials that would affect the sound. The OMEGA Series of speaker cables are truly extreme cable designs. The signal carrying conductors within the cable have such high resolution that all of the other parts and materials of the cable become the audible differences. If the materials or parts can possible influence and change the sound, then we work to isolate the sonic signature of the materials and parts. It is therefore extremely important that all of the materials used in the OMEGA Series have no â€˜sonic signatureâ€™, meaning that the cables transfer the musical signal with the most clarity, neutrality and transparency possible. There are 3 levels of performance in the OMEGA Series of speaker cables. From the top, we start with the legendary OMEGA Gold as the absolute state-of-the-art speaker cable. The next OMEGA speaker cable is the highly acclaimed and most reviewed OMEGA speaker cable known as the OMEGA Onyx. Below the Onyx is the high-performance OMEGA Edge.
The OMEGA Gold is the ultimate model in the OMEGA Series of speaker cables. The RSCÂ® conductors are insulated with a fine layer of aerospace polyethylene, a very neutral material with minimal audible effect. The OMEGA Gold delivers lifelike sound vocals, pin-point imaging and clear resolution detail with ease. You will hear an accurate harmonic structure extending upwards with the finest and most delicate of high-frequencies. This will be contrasted with a vanishingly low noise floor. The reproduction of the recorded space can only be described as holographic. The qualities of reverberation and ambient retrieval are simply astonishing. The OMEGA Gold is without peer, a level of performance beyond comparison to any other speaker cable design.
In the interface between an amplifier and the loudspeaker, we have the output impedance of the amplifier and the impedance of the loudspeaker. The impedance of the loudspeaker usually varies with frequency and this is affected by the electrical characteristic called Inductance. To put it simply, Inductance is the technical term for resistance (impedance) at AC frequencies. The complex AC waveform that we call music is the relatively larger electromagnetic wave. The electromagnetic wave in the speaker cable creates inductance thus affecting the sound in any speaker cable. When a loudspeaker cable is designed to have minimal inductance, the sound becomes more lifelike, more authentic because of the additional harmonic overtones. However, as the cable becomes more revealing, then the materials used in the construction of the cable become more audible.
The complex AC waveform that we call music is the relatively larger electromagnetic wave that travels through the insulation and/or dielectric materials. The materials between a positive and negative conductor are called dielectric materials. The prefix di means between. All types of dielectric materials such as plastic or fabric/fiber filler materials distort and color the sound because these materials have different amounts of dielectric absorption.
Additionally, the amount of absorption varies depending on frequency. As you listen and learn how these distortions can be created and how they affect the sound, your reference for a neutral, clean, clear speaker cable will shift towards a design that relies on having no medium between the positive and negative conductors.
Given that any practical solution requires a medium of some kind to separate the positive and negative conductors, the TARA Labs air-tubeÂ® and aerospace polyethylene insulation provides an elegant solution to this problem. Finally, if you want soft, smooth and warm sounding speaker cables, TARA Labs is not for you. The sonic signature of a TARA Labs cable is neutral, clear and revealing without sounding harsh, shrill or bright. If you hear any of these negative qualities from your audio system, you need to consider other components in your audio system.
