Foil Speaker Cable
As speaker cables do not only have to transmit a signal but also energy, the cable geometry is of particular importance. The energy required by the speaker is transmitted in an electromagnetic field. To provide an appropriate "conductor path" for this field, I use a foil (aka ribbon) conductor. Despite the complex manufacturing process, the result is worth it.

Reproduction is surprisingly open, purified and transparent. Spatial representation and signal depth are outstanding. As for my other products, I avoid using plastic whenever possible. Dielectric and jacketing are made of natural materials.
The standard plug for this cable is my own spade connector. On request, I also offer hard gold-plated non-magnetic hollow banana plugs.
Only a missing solder joint is a good solder joint. With the spade connector the conductor becomes the contact itself. Base material is a durable glass-fibre plate. Supreme signal transmission properties!
Sometimes a spade connector is not possible or not optimal to connect to your amplifier or speaker. Then a high-grade cryo-treated non-magnetic hollow banana plug is the better choice.
Copper versus Silver
Copper is the second best conductor on earth. Silver is an even better conductor. However, silver is eavesdropped by the audiophile audience. Some say it has harsh trebles and a thin sound. IMHO this can have two reasons. First a non proper dielectric of the cable can lead to this effect. Secondly small errors in the audio system are transmitted better with silver. Copper is more likely to tolerate these errors. Is your chain ready for silver? Trial and error is the way to go. Feel free to order an identical trial set in copper and silver.
