Rare and non-heavy advertised Ribbon \ Foil cables?
hello A'goners, can anyone drop me the manufacturer brands using of ribbon or somewhat similar construction like foil in their cables? i have gather names like Verastarr (heavily marketed) & Omega Mikro, i tried google but nothing much come out. i'm trying to find out more brands which are unknown, rarely marketed by dealers. kindly assist me by giving me names and i would try to audition the cables myself. Your contribution would be appreciated! Thank you.
Pure Note Paragon Enhanced. No longer made. This 10 yr old silver ribbon IC is still in my system after extensive auditioning against respected newcomers. (Avoid the previous non-enhanced version.) Informative review here for a later model, TRS Audio Designer’s Edition.
Philip, you are asking the right question for speaker wire. According to Maxwell's Equations, two ribbons with wide sides together, are the theoretical optimum for speaker wire. It's the current that makes inductance your main enemy for speaker wire, while the tiny currents in line level cables make capacitance your main enemy for line level. Lower capacitance means conductors further apart.
has anyone tried Stefan Art
Endorphin Wood Shell Ribbon cable? they have another foil cable (their flagship)that is air-suspended at twice the cost! i wonder if the sound is twice as good? Thanks -philip
