TFA 3080 RSC, Deep Cryo Treated Speaker Cables
Our new TFA 3080 RSC speaker cable is constructed using Neotech NEMOS 3080 Rectangular Solid Core OCC Copper which has been carefully Deep Cryo Treated and terminated using low mass Multi-Contact LS4 bananas. The result is a cable which offers increased detail without the associated brightness found in many cables. This cable is 14 awg per pole and offers very low inductance, making it ideal for a wide range of systems.
Neotech has long been a leader in
producing wire and cable using "single crystal" UP-OCC Copper,
developed by Professor Ohno of the Chiba Institute of Technology in
Japan. UP-OCC copper is at least 99.99998% pure, and has an average
crystal size of 125 meters. Compare this to the average
crystal size of Oxygen Free Copper, which is .02 meters (3/4"). UP-OCC
copper and silver are considered the ultimate in copper and silver
conductor technology today.
The base $235.30 (CDN) cable consists of:
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

(1) 6 ft TFA 3080 RSC Deep Cryo Treated speaker cable finished with PET sleeve and terminated with Multi-Contact LS4 bananas, if you need spade connectors you also have the choice of Vampire HDS5
spades or Vampire HDS3 spades. The price will adjust
automatically when you choose a different length. PLEASE NOTE: the base price is for 1 cable,
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
The Deep Cryo Treated Vampire spades are a
direct gold plated, copper spade. The HDS5 is a 1/4" spade that will fit standard 1/4" binding posts (also fits the Vandersteens perfectly). The HDS3 are the same construction as the HDS5 but designed to fit 5/16" binding posts. Spades will be crimped onto the cables.
We also offer 4mm banana connections. We are using the Deep Cryo Treated 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. These bananas fit Magnapans perfectly with no need to use the setscrew. Solder termination is done using a precision OK International MFR Cartridge System and Mundorf Silver/Gold solder.
Our spade connectors are applied using a high pressure die which creates a
"gas tight" crimp connection. The wire is also given a generous
treatment of DeoxIt Gold before the spade is pressed on to ensure the lowest contact resistance and inhibit corrosion.
Spade and banana
connections are covered with adhesive lined Polyolefin shrinktube to
offer strain relief and to help seal the connection point and conductor
from the environment. Amplifier and speaker leads are colour coded with shrinktube. We only use
high grade Crosslinked Polyolefin shrinktube in our cable construction.
Get Started by selecting the length of cable you need to reach from your amplifier to your speakers. Next, select the type of termination you want on the speaker end of the
cables. You have the same choices here as on the amplifier end. As with the
amplifier terminations, be sure to check your speaker binding posts to
see which size spade you require.
Review your length, termination selections and the quantity. If everything is
correct, then press the order button. The total cost of the cable with
the options you selected 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.
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 four 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.
