With the design of The CLEARWATER, it was our intention to produce the best match between quality and price.
The decision was taken to work with 2 groups of strands with a conductor size of AWG 14; this because in many situations the distance between the amplifier and the loudspeakers is limited.
Therefore a twin-lead construction was made with 2 x 98 strands of a dense very pure silver coated Matched Crystal (MC) OFC.
The two conductor groups are twisted in opposite directions.
The resistance of each lead is: 0.9 Ohm/100 meter.
The capacitance between the two conductors is: 17.5 pF/meter.
Sonically this cable is a great product with a very balanced overall quality.
There is no harshness and the spatial reproduction is superior.
Just as its name says: The sound is as clear as water.
The cable’s jacket is made of transparent HULLIFLEX ® 3, a robust halogen free material excellently capable of shielding the copper conductors from the chemically threatening outside world.
The jacket on each lead is different in shape and the flat middle section in between has a printing on one side: both properties are easy polarity finders. Type printing at 25 cm. (10") distance makes cutting of specified lengths very easy.
In our program we also have a quadruple lead / bi-wiring version of this cable, named The CLEARTRACK, available.
Packing: 100 meter per reel in a box with external dimensions of 31 x 31 x 29 cm. and with a total shipping weight of 8.8 kg.
