Hey, nice information- thanks...... One more question - how does it sound??


Does anyone know where to find informations about manufacturers of the wires that Kimber or Audioquest uses? Where I could ask those questions?

I'm not keen on describing how something sounds as there is rarely a common frame of reference. What sounds shrill to some may sound just right to others. Others actually like the TDA1541. Furthermore the single strand stuff is in my phonostage, something I haven't listened to for a few years now. There is a mix of stranded and single strand in my modded AN DAC3 and I like the effect but as to how much the wire contributes to the whole package, your guess is as good as mine. There are others better placed to sit around listening to bits of wire.

You could always visit their websites and ask them for the suppliers of their raw material ..... Failng that use the search engine in the various audio forums that abound all over the net. It is possible someone has some insight into the origins of these cables.

Silver plated solid core copper removes harmonic richness from the sound.

Much better solution is silver-and-then gold plated solid core copper! In fact, for hook-up wire I would always avoid silver plated copper.

Silver plated solid core copper could be okay for power cables, but not for interconnects / hook-up wiring.

A friend of mine makes and sells cables for living. He's been around for 20 + years - PSC Audio (Pure Silver Connection - Australia). I learned a lot from him. He also supplies me with high-quality stuff.

Very good signal conductor is pure silver ribbon, but it has to be annealed.

If you have to choose (on the cheap) between silver plated copper and OFC, I would always go for OFC.

And yes, everything benefits from high quality wire, best is to use light twist and avoid heavy shielding.

Thnx for the reply...... I would also choose copper if I had a very good one. But..... on the other side I still suffer from the "silver is better". From my experience better , yes, but if You use it in entire audio chain. Well, I will try that Audio Note wire first since I have it in my country and in the meantime I would try to locate some good quality, single strand, copper wire to try it also....
