The TUBULUS Argentus Analog Interconnect V3 is based on high quality pure silver conductors. These are solid core and semi-solid concentric conductors to minimize strand interaction, which is a major source of distortion.
The conductors are of various diameter and individually insulated by air. We use air insulation because (next to a vacuum) air is the best dielectric. This air insulation is made possible by a tube construction, which can only be made by hand.
With a special thermo-process the silver conductors are restructured at a molecular level to reach a quality close to mono crystal silver.
The TUBULUS Argentus Analog Interconnect V3 is also equipped with 2 layers of very effective shielding to prevent electrical noise entering into the cable. This shielding has a 100% coverage.
TUBULUS Argentus Analog Interconnect cables are available with high quality silvered RCA or XLR plugs, which are soldered with silver containing solder.
TUBULUS cables are hand crafted with love, expertise and devotion with no excess decoration or luxury packaging and therefore true value for your money! And we offer a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!** Because TUBULUS cables are made by hand the average production time is about 1 to 2 weeks.
WHY USE AIR INSULATION
Most audio wire has extruded insulation, where the insulation material is in intimate and immediate contact with the conductor along its entire length. This forms the dielectric of the wire, which has a tendency to absorb and release energy to and from the conductor. The occurrence of this phenomenon produces negative sonic affects. Dielectric constant measurements are used to determine the ability of an insulator to store electrical energy. Common insulator materials and their dielectric constants are Teflon (2.1), polyethylene (2.25) and polyvinyl chloride PVC (3.18). The best practical dielectric is air, which has the near-perfect lowest dielectric constant (1.00059) next to a vacuum (which has a perfect dielectric constant of 1). That’s why TUBULUS uses air insulation.
