TFA Silver Reference 8 AWG Single Pole Speaker Cables
These cables are constructed from 8 AWG Mil-Spec MIL-Spec M22759-11-8-2 which has been put through our Deep Cryogenic Treatment process. This wire has a silver-plated copper conductor with thin-wall extruded PTFE insulation
Our Single-Pole design has one 8 AWG conductor per pole with the conductors physically separated from each other and individually finished. The audible benefits of this design are improved dynamics and soundstage dimensions. These cables are smooth, detailed and dynamic with a huge soundstage. By varying the distance between or twisting the individual cables the soundstage dimensions and response can be altered.
The cables electrical measurements also change depending on how the cables are positioned. For this reason I give two sets of LCR measurements. One measurement is with the cables lying close together parallel and the other is with a gentle 1 revolution per ft twist in the cables.

MIL-Spec M22759-11-8-2
M22759/11 wire has a silver-plated copper conductor with thin-wall extruded PTFE insulation, 600V and 200°C. This wire is designed for optimal performance in aerospace or commercial equipment smoke, fire, vibration, or cut-through.

Conductor: Silver-plated copper
Insulation: Thin-wall extruded PTFE
Voltage Rating: 600V
Temperature Rating: 200°C
Stranding: 133/29
Conductor Dia: .162"
Outside Dia.: .192" Min - .206" Max

Cable Measurements
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.
These 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.

The base $364.76 (CDN) cable consists of:
(1) 6 ft Set Deep Cryo Treated TFA Silver Reference 8 AWG Single Pole speaker cables
terminated at both ends with Deep Cryo Treated Furutech FP-200B(G) in a non bi-wire, single-pole configuration. The price will adjust automatically when you choose a different length. PLEASE NOTE: the base price is for 1 cable Set enough for ONE CHANNEL, if you need a stereo pair (or more) change the quantity to the number required. You can order as many cables as you need, in different lengths and terminations by hitting the "order" button after selecting each cable.

The 8 AWG conductors are stripped using thermal strippers to avoid any scoring of the conductors, they are then  treated with DeoxiT Gold before being secured in the connectors with special Hex Drive setscrews for maximum grip. We also offer crimped Vampire HDS spade terminations on this cable as well as a range of premium connectors.

Bi-wiring is possible with this design simply by using spades on one set and bananas on the other at the amplifier end if your amp has only one set of binding posts.

Select 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 will ship next business day unless you decide to have them pre-conditioned on our cable cooker. Please allow 5 days for the pre-conditioning process.

If 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.

The parts used in this cable have been Deep Cryo Treated by Take Five Audio, click HERE for full details on our process.
