Working principle Without noticing we are in a very polluted environment. Everywhere around us fields arise from currents flowing through conductors. Also interference pulses are not visible to us, but they just are there. Each device using energy causes fluctuations on the network in the form of peaks or surges, or causes a variation in the fields in the air. The effects occur around the device itself and on its mains supply, but even far away from the device the fields are still measurable. This can only be measured with suitable equipment, not with our ears.
Common thought is that shielded supply cables protect the connected devices better against influences from outside, and that is true. But much more important is that the field created by the fluctuating current inside the supply cable does not reach interlinks in the neighbourhood. Interlinks transports small signals to devices with a high input resistance, this makes the signals extremely sensitive for interfering fields.
Many supply cables for audio look beautiful , just like ours. But appearance is not all ! The Current Conductor is a dual shielded cable. The outside shield is NOT a braided steel one, a steel screening does not function as a shield, it is meant to protect the cable against physical force. Instead, the Current Conductor has a braided copper screen with high density and tin protection against oxidation. Under the copper shielding lies a 100% closed aluminum foil for suppression of high frequenties. In contradiction to a synthetic foil, this solution works!
The three stranded wires are suitable to conduct high currents without resistive losses (the losses of energy in the form of heat). The earth wire is connected at both sides, the shield is only connected at the feeding side, as it is supposed to be. Finally, we gave the plug a nice CNC machined cover.
Where to use? If it is up to us, everywhere! But the upmost effect can be obtained as the supply cables from large consuming devices become replaced. The external fields will thus lower to acceptable values.
Power supply cables close to interlinks should also be replaced, especially when the signal transport is unbalanced (witch RCA or phono plugs). When Power supply cables are wired in parallel of signal cables, or when the signal cable is coming from or going to a phonostage, then placing the Current Conductor is strongly recommended.
The low resistance of our Current Conductor can also work in your advantage when passing a large distance. The total resistance is lineary proportional to the cable length.
When in doubt: just contact us. We will be pleased to answer your questions.
What to expect? The result of experimenting with supply cables can vary from small changes to big surprises. The most heard improvement is the quietness in silent parts of the music as well as more noticeable details.
