A true HI-FI speaker cable,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Van Damme Professional Studio Grade Blue Series 2 x 2.5mm (14AWG) Speaker Cable - Priced Per Metre (Electronics)
I purchased this cable to replace some Cambridge Symphony 200 cable I had for my Hi-Fi.
Mechanically the cable is very flexible and easy to move around. The old cable I have, Cambridge Symphony 200, looks like a joke in comparison with this one.
Most of cable makers do not give the complete technical details but Audiovisual tech team was able to tell me that this cable has 147 strands of 0.15mm each (I do not know if the number is for each wire or for both of them). I do not know why they do no put this info in the main description. More strands better is for analog signals. I think that Symphony 200 has 50 strands per wire.
You have to be careful when terminating such a cable as the rubber insulation is very soft and if you do not have the right tools (as in my case). I will put a photo of the cross section of this cable in comparison with Cambridge Symphony 200.
Sound: there is a difference between this cable and the old one, the sound has more depth now.
Price: expensive but a better value if compared with other makes (like Symphony in my case)
