Product Description

Size Name:4M  |  Colour Name:2 x 2.5mm

This Van Damme Professional Blue Series Studio Grade 2 x 2.5 mm (10AWG) core - Speaker Cableis part of the popular cable range and ideal for satellite speakers or situations that require a small diameter cable. Total cable diameter is 7.6mm.
The industry standard Van Damme range of blue series 2 core speaker cables has now been comprehensively upgraded. They now feature finer stranded conductors and utilise the latest PVC composite jacket materials to provide the highest level of flexibility married with totally efficient signal transmission. This range of cables is ideal for rehearsal and recording studio applications, but is equally at home.
Van Damme now use a higher purity oxygen free copper for the conductors - Ultra-Pure Oxygen Free Copper (UPOFC). The use of this material further improves the solderability and conductivity of the conductor resulting in faithful and transparent signal reproduction.
In common with most cables of its type, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is used for the conductor insulation. There are many variant types of PVC used for cable insulation that may exhibit moderate, good or better electrical and mechanical properties. As speaker signals are essentially relatively high DC voltages, a low dielectric constant is not a priority. The PVC polymers used by Van Damme maximise the flexibility, heat resistance and stress resistance characteristics of PVC to ensure that there is a minimum of insulation shrinkback when soldering and a high level of flexibility even after years of use and abuse. The overall jacket material is a neoprene heavy special PVC composite that has an almost rubberised quality. This jacket is high pressure extruded over the 2 twisted inner conductors to create a robust, extremely flexible speaker cable that has excellent coilability in use.

This cable was bought after an recent upgrade of my current system, I previously had some very cheap generic cable hooked up to a pair of Wharfedale 9.1 speakers. I have now upgraded this to a pair of Dali zensor 1 and this cable. I tried this cable on my Wharfedales before buying the Dalis and I was impressed with how much the sound improved over the generic cable. The bass response was immediately better and the top end was slightly improved as well. However after hearing a pair of Dalis at my local electronics store I simply had to have the Dalis. After I got the Dalis home I set them straight away with this cable and they sounded a little harsh on the top end and the bass was not there, however these were brand new out of the box and not even run in. I have now nearly fully run my speakers and cable in and I am simply amazed on how much of an improvement that has been achieved, they sound even better now than they did in the test room.
The bass response is now more controlled and a lot deeper than originally, the vocals and high ends now sparkle rather than sounding harsh. However I thought this change was just from the speakers running in, so I did a test and swapped back to the cheaper generic cable and the difference in sound was very noticeable, the cheap cable sounded rough in comparison.

The cable itself is really well made, really heavy and feels like it will last along time. A recently have paired this cable to a set of Sewell Pro Maestro Banana Plugs and this addition will help reduce oxidation of the cable which in turn will increase the cables life. The cable has a talc solution under the blue outer covering, I believe this is some sort of lubrication to prevent the wire from splitting or fraying when installing it.

Excellent quality product. My speakers (EPOS AVS) are rated at 4 ohms so I needed the larger core cross section that this wire provides for the length of run necessary. Excellent signal transmission producing top quality output from the speakers. Much cheaper than the basic speaker wire offered in the shop and far better quality. The colour and the thickness of the wire may put some people off but as I have run it under the floor this is not an issue for me. Highly recommended.

This speaker cable is as good as many other speaker cables costing much more. Clear balanced sound with loads of detail. A bargain at this price.

ok i never write reviews but this was such a bargin and arrived in such good time i thought i would voice my opinion.

Simply put i bought this on standard delivery in the evening and it came to my house 2 days later.

Not sure if you can find 15m of studio blue for £69.75... at £4.65 a metre i very much doubt you can find this product at any lower price.

As regards to the product... its really good... Abbey Road Studios has been using Van Damme for 20 years... pluss its the cable of choice from Mark Grant ([...]) which is something to take into consideration.

Basically this is big think, good quality cable at a low price.... only slight downfall is the colour. But in the long run this is a fine deal!

This is excellent relatively heavyweight cable. I felt I needed this for some relatively long runs (12-15m) to rear speakers in a home cinema system. I don't really know if it was overkill but all I can say is that I am pleased with the results. (I used the same cable for the shorter runs as well.) The cable looks like a quality product and has the advantage of very good flexibility. I bought several lengths, all from the same supplier (HDCentral), and received very prompt delivery.

The speaker cables I chose, Van Damme Blue Series Studio Grade, are excellent quality. The price makes them even more attractive! The casing is very protective but remains flexible for guiding around any objects blocking the way between amplifier and speaker.
