    MY TAKE: Over the years we’ve come to appreciate the quality, performance and value offered by the Wireworld line of cables. I can’t tell you how many cables we’ve tried in this price range, but none have matched Wireworld cables for performance and versatility. These cables have, what we term, very low system dependency (meaning they remain neutrally-balanced in most any system) which virtually guarantees a good fit in your current system, and won’t be out of place as you change equipment. - Galen Carol


    Series 8 Upgrades

    Series 8 speaker cables have more strand groups than Series 7, which strengthens the electromagnetic field that moves the signal through the cable. These upgrades improve clarity, dynamics, soundstaging and image focus.

     


    Speaker cables may be the most misunderstood audio components. Many believe that using heavier gauge speaker wire will minimize audible losses, but that is not true. While increasing the thickness of a conductor does reduce resistive loss, which wastes amplifier power in the form of heat, it also increases inductive (electromagnetic) loss, which causes much of the degradation that we actually hear from cables. Clearly, an optimal speaker cable would minimize both resistance and inductance to preserve as much of the original sound as possible.


    Everyone knows that magnetic force varies with distance, so it should come as no surprise that the positive and negative conductors of a cable need to be very close together to minimize electromagnetic loss. The problem with thick conductors is that they simply can’t be made close enough…that is unless they are flattened!  That simple answer is the basis for the Quad DNA Helix™ cable designs utilized in Wireworld speaker cables. The flat conductors in these cables are as thin as a single strand, yet there are enough strands to provide very low resistance, and all of the strands are completely parallel, providing the most direct signal path possible. Furthermore, for each design, the spacing between the two polarities is tuned to match the sound of a direct connection. The effect of that tuning is like focusing a lens, with the beautiful textures of live music coming into vivid 3-D focus when the spacing is just right.
     

    The Equinox 8 features Wireworld’s unique patented Quad DNA Helix™ cable design and is beautifully terminated using Uni-Term™ interchangeable Silver Spade lugs or Silver Banana plugs.
