TFA SG-BW Speaker Cables
We are very pleased to introduce our new TFA SG-BW (Shotgun Bi-wire) speaker cables. These cables have been designed for use with lower power amplifiers and high efficiency speakers. Unlike our other custom speaker cables these are sold in pairs and are made in a dual run (shotgun) configuration. The separate cables for the high/low sections of the crossover are not intertwined and are not held together with a braided jacket, they are instead completely separate and individually sleeved. The separate cables are designed to be spaced apart by 10-12" when connecting the amplifier to the speakers.
The TFA SG-BW is constructed from our DCT Belden 9497 and terminated with DCT Multi-Contact LS4 bananas. A full description of our cryogenic processing can be found by following the link at the bottom of this page. These cryogenically processed materials combined with meticulous assembly and attention to detail render a cable that is sure to please those using lower power tube amplifiers and high efficiency speakers. The sound is smooth, detailed, and musical with a large soundstage that has excellent localization. These cables are available in several lengths but with only one connector, the LS4 banana, we have found nothing that sounds better with this design. These cables are also fully conditioned before shipment, we want you to hear them at their absolute best so we treat all of these to 5 days on our Cable Cooker before we send them out.
Our measurements are done on actual finished cables,
these results can be quite different than the manufacturer specs for
the same cable. Measurements for raw unterminated cables are usually
based on conductor-conductor and conductor-shield readings on long
lengths of unterminated cable.
per ft measurements are a good guideline to determine the suitability
of a cable for an application but in most cases they cannot be
extrapolated to give you the specs of a given length of finished cable.
The reason for this is that they do not take into consideration the
variables that come into play when a cable is terminated such as
telescoped shields, conductor grouping and the connectors themselves. The results below are for the finished cable of the noted length.
All cable testing is performed on an Instek LCR-819 at 1kHz, 1V, 20C
|Length of Cable Under Test
|Capacitance: 375.55 pF
|Inductance: .00152 mH
| Resistance: .03422 Ohm
The base $229.00 (CDN) cable consists of:
(1 Pair) 6 ft Deep Cryo Treated TFA SG-BW speaker cables with black tightweave sleeve and terminated at both ends with Deep Cryo Treated LS4 Banana connectors. The price will adjust
automatically when you choose a different length. PLEASE NOTE: the base price is for 1 PAIR of cables.
We are using the Multi-Contact LS4 banana because of the excellent sonics and low mass. The rolled design
of these connectors makes a tight fit in every binding post we have
tried them in. Solder termination is done using a precision OK International MFR Cartridge System and Mundorf Silver/Gold solder. We only use marker grade Crosslinked Polyolefin shrinktube in our cable construction.
When selecting the length for these particular cables be sure to allow enough extra so that you will be able to have at least 10" of separation, The separation is necessary for the cables to perform at their absolute best.
the cable length you need for your application, then press the order
button. The total cost of the cable will appear in the shopping cart at
the top of the right hand navigation bar. Click
"view cart" to see an itemized list of the cables ordered. Shipping
cost and any applicable taxes will be applied during checkout. Once the order is placed the cables are constructed
to your specs and then placed on our Cable Cooker. Please allow 5 days for
the pre-conditioning process.
When you have your cables pre-conditioned
(burned in) on our audiodharma Cable Cooker they will require only a
minimal amount of time to reach their full potential, typically about one
day of normal use to settle in and another 2-3 days of normal use to
reach about 90-95% of it's full potential.
