Why and how cables can impact sound

Cheap Cables from AliExpress? Why pay more?

Posted by Aaron . on

Top 2 issues: 1. China do not yet have the manufacturing ability to create OCC copper, therefor any claim made that their cable is OCC copper is false. They use low grade bare copper.  2. That Rhodium plating is not Rhodium I am sorry to break the news to you, and that gold plated copper, I'm sorry to say is gold painted Brass. So what.. save a few bucks, it looks cool... Wrong. That rhodium plating is actually chrome with a glossy paint over it, great way to improve electrical conductivity.... don't believe me, get a multi-meter and test the...

What makes Interconnect cables better?

Posted by Aaron . on

1. Low Capacitance This is possibly the most important audible aspect, Interconnects transfer analog voltage signals between components. The voltages involved range from < microvolt to over +1 Volts, but the currents involved are always extremely small. The currents are small because the load that the interconnect drives is generally between 10-100K ohms. This is the input impedance of the component being driven. There is virtually zero power transfer with interconnects. Because there is basically zero power transfer, it is not necessary for the driving component to be capable of driving much power. As a result, most components are designed...

Cables and how they affect sound

Posted by Aaron . on

With such a huge selection of audio cables available these days it's hard to know how to choose the correct one and how it will affect the sound of your system. In a nutshell it really all comes down to simple rules of AC current behaviour. The following article written byAl Keltz will talk about impedance, resistance, capacitance, inductance. And I highly recommend that before spending thousands of dollars on your audio cables, you should understand these concepts and how they  affect the signal traveling between your source (Dac/pre-amp) and your input (Amp) the joining "cables capacitance and  "resistance" can and...
