The cable high-end connoisseurs select to connect passive loudspeakers. Exquisite ingredients in a perfect blend are the formula; perfect sound balance and the subtlest details are the result.
solid core conductors made of continuous cast copper
pigment and plasticizer free high purity polymers
gold plated, mass optimized 4.0 mm banana plugs
Connectors for VOVOX® textura LS VOVOX® textura speaker cables are terminated with mass optimized gold plated 4.0 mm banana plugs. Alternatively, you can also have VOVOX® textura speaker cables assembled with gold plated spades of continuous cast copper. Any combinations of spades, banana plugs (upon request also with 2.0 mm diameter) or bare wires are possible as well.
Made in Switzerland VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, are lead-free.
Minimized Boundary Surfaces Cables have many surfaces, or more precisely expressed, boundary surfaces, like the grain boundaries in copper, or the boundary between the conductor surface and the insulation. Each boundary is a source of imperfection. VOVOX® sound conductors are made of single solid core conductors. Using this construction, the total boundary surface is reduced by up to 90% compared to stranded wires.
Conductor Spacing Current induces electromagnetic fields encircling every conductor. If the distance between two conductors is too small, interactions and interferences are created. The result is an audible loss of sound quality. As a consequence, the conductors are arranged at well-defined, relatively large distances.
Cable coating with natural fibers The contact surface between the conductor and the dielectric medium must accommodate complex interactions. Thanks to the tried-and-tested solid-core concept, these effects can be efficiently reduced. VOVOX® textura fortis, textura and vocalis are further improved by a fine meshwork of natural fibers that form a protective wrapping around the conductor. Triboelectrical phenomena are no longer possible. The difference is audible: tranquillity instead of disturbance, an incredibly tidy stage, perfect transparency.
Continuous Cast Copper For the cables of the VOVOX® textura fortis and textura series we use conductors of ultra pure continuous cast copper. A patented process permits the continuous casting of 99.99998% pure copper. This procedure is most demanding and time-consuming. Thanks to the very, very slow production speed of only a few centimeters per minute, it is possible to control precisely the growth of copper crystals. The result: tailored conductors of highest quality.
Conditioning VOVOX® textura fortis sound conductors run through a cryogenic treatment at -180°C. Although there are hardly any scientific explanations for the effect of cryogenic treatment and running-in cables, we are sure the effort pays off: The difference is audible. In addition, the assembled cables with the connectors are conditioned in a optimized run-in process. This refinement guarantees optimal audio quality already after a short warm-up time of 10 - 20 minutes. Nevertheless their full potential will be reached after additional 50 - 200 hours of service.
