Speaker cable "exact"
"exact" is the essence of 10 years of experience in loudspeaker cable construction. The following problem arises in power transmission:
the closer two alternating current-carrying conductors are together, the stronger become the magnetic forces between them. They repel and attract each other, to the beat of the music. However, this relative movement induces a voltage that is added to the original signal and distorts it. One solution is to separate the positive and negative poles locally, but then the cable increasingly loses the ability to reproduce impulses correctly.
With the "exact" I'm going the other way. I bring the conductors as close together as technically possible and glue them together. A well-known example of this approach is the baked enamel wire coil. In order to protect this topology from mechanical damage, two glass fibre rods are inserted into the cable sheath and extend from one into the other hollow banana plug.
- 12 single conductors enamelled copper wire
- glued with C37-varnish
- cross section:: 1.2 mm²
- capacitance: 0,85nF/m
- cryo-treated non-magnetic hollow bananas
- protected against structure borne noise by cotton
- protected from mechanical stress with 2 glass fibre rods
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. Bass is extended to the very low end and defined. Dielectric and jacketing are made of almost exclusively 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 ideal 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 with prejudices by the audiophile audience. Some say it has harsh trebles and a thin sound. This has at least 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. I will be happy to advise you! Feel free to order an identical trial set in copper and silver.
