The TUBULUS Argentus Speaker Cable V3 is based on high quality pure silver and silvered copper conductors. These are solid core conductors to prevent strand interaction, which is a major source of distortion.
The conductors are individually insulated and surrounded by mainly air, because (except for a vacuum) air is the best dielectric. This air insulation is made possible by our tube construction, which can only be made by hand.
The Tubulus Argentus Speaker Cable V3 has various diameter conductors. Because every diameter has its owm musical character. The pure silver conductors are also treated with a special thermo-process (not cryo) to reallign the monocular structure.
The TUBULUS Argentus Speaker cable V3 is available with high quality gold plated spades or banana plugs, which are soldered with silver containing solder.
TUBULUS Argentus Speaker cables are hand crafted with love, expertise and devotion with no excess decoration or luxury packaging and therefore true value for your money!
WHY WE USE AIR INSULATION.
Most audio wire has extruded insulation, where the insulation material is in intimate and immediate contact with the conductor along its entire length. This forms the dielectric of the wire, which has a tendency to absorb and release energy to and from the conductor. The occurrence of this phenomenon produces negative sonic affects. Dielectric constant measurements are used to determine the ability of an insulator to store electrical energy. Common insulator materials and their dielectric constants are Teflon (2.1), polyethylene (2.25) and polyvinyl chloride PVC (3.18). The best practical dielectric is air, which has the near-perfect lowest dielectric constant (1.00059) next to a vacuum (which has a perfect dielectric constant of 1). That’s why TUBULUS uses air insulation.
