Active Silver Speaker Cable



activespeaker.jpg


This cable is constructed from two
10awg Silver Clad Copper wires. Each wire structure is then covered by Teflon,
the most inert substance know to man. Since Teflon does not store energy and
release it later the detail is superior to other products. Silver is the best
conductor, period. It makes your amp sound like it has picked up a few watts of
power. Next the entire twisted wires are inserted into a Silver braid shield.




  • Silver Clad wire




  • 10awg for all runs




  • Eliminate induced hum




  • 9v charge




  • no solder used for great detail




  • Standard Audioquest spades




  • Available banana's




This braid shield is the basis for
our active shielding. It is connected to a 9v battery which is wired to charge
the shield to 9v. This effectively creates an electric fence to outside
interference. Instead of just shielding the wire like a normal cable the charged
active cable repels EMI/RFI interference. This is especially good for tube
amplifiers. I have heard these cables significantly reduce induced hum. The
battery is good for at least two years or more. and does not need constant
checking.


Instead of me telling you how they
sound I though I would let a customer give their impression. Here it is:


 




  Review: Aural
Thrills Audio Speaker cable



First, I can't believe that I am THE first to post a review on
these excellent cables. They have been in my system for a little
over 10 mos. now and they continue to impress.



I have these hooked up to the panals (highs) in a bi-wire
configuration to my ML Summit loudspeakers, which BTW, are very
revealing to anything linked up to them. I am by no means a "cable
hound" or expert and certainly have not heard even 1/10 of what is
currently available in the flooded market of cables, but I feel the
Aural Thrills offer extraordinary performance for the dollar. These
were purchased from Aural Thrills via auction here at the 'Gon,
which I still believe A. Thrills is running (probably as a method of
promoting their products to get the name out).



I am not one to give into high priced cable, with the sometimes
attached mumbo-jumbo tech. jargon, but after reading the technicals
on this cable, I was intrigued enough to try them, with little risk
at the price paid (under $500.)



I just can't personally see how a cable, ANY cable, unless it is
constructed using pure gold connectors, can ever cost more than a
decent component! I certainly don't doubt that there are "sound"
differences in cables, but I think the law of diminishing returns
rears it's big ugly head in cables more so than any other hi-fi
component, IMHO. That's just my two cents worth -- nuff said!



The Aural Thrills Force speaker cable, to quote their web site,
utilizes an "active" approach similar to AudioQuest and Synergistic
Research, in that they employ a DC source, hooked to the braid of
the cable, to "create a positive field around each wire, effectively
preventing any signal loss.." The signal lines contain eight 20 ga.
silver coated high conductivity OFC solid conductors. The result is
a combined ga. of 11awg. (The individual wires are also Teflon
incased). I could go on, but you get the gist. For those who require
more tech. detail, I defer them to the Aural Thrills web site.



OK, enough of the "jargon", how do they sound? In my system, with my
equipment and personal tastes, literally like no cable at all.



The first obvious thing that I noticed was a blacker, quieter
background. This allows the music to have a greater dynamic impact,
both micro & macro, resulting in a better "flow" of the musical
signal. I cannot comment to much on the bass, as again, they are
strictly doing duty as the mid and high freq. carrier to the
electrostat panel, though I did run them briefly "full range" with
my prior speakers (Prodigys) and there were no complaints in the
bass dept. Smooth, tight, & fast.



The mids and high freq. are really were these cables shine with a
nice, natural balance on vocals, no over-pronounced sibilence, with
warmth when the recording called for it. The highest freq. are
pristine and extend on up into the statosphere without any
attenuation or hype. Just a nice "transparent" overall balance.



The imaging and soundstage are also very good. Nice stable images,
with natural 3D depth, and a wide expansive arc of sound with
excellent focus. (BTW - I also use the Aural Thrills Force Gen I
Active Palladium interconnects with similar, excellent results. Same
adjectives apply to those as well). Construction is impressive with
attractive jacketing and nice, beefy Rhodium plated Cardas spades.



I listen primarily to Prog. rock, prog./fussion jazz, some modern
artists,etc. Here is a small sampling of some music selections used;



Norah Jones (various)

Van Morrison "

XTC - Apple Venus, Oranges & Lemons, etc.

Mindy Smith - one moment more

The Watch - Vacuum

John Mayer - heavier things

Steve Hackett - darktown

Peter Gabriel - so

Thomas Dolby - astronauts & heretics

The Blue Nile - walk across the rooftops

Barenaked Ladies - Gordon

Genesis - Selling England...(vinyl, Japanese import)



All in all, in the sometimes insanely priced world of high-end
cables, these are terrific performers, in my system, and I would
recommend anyone trying them - quickly, while you can still get them
at auction for well below the "retail" price. These might be one of
the best kept secrets in audio cable-land.
