"Tributaries Series 8 gave me much more of the immediacy of live music that I know well."
All Series 8 audio cables are meticulously assembled by hand in Orlando, Florida. Series 8 Mark II Bi-Wire speaker cables begin with extremely high-grade linear crystal copper (LC-OFC) developed specifically for audio applications. Tributaries LC-OFC is carefully drawn to produce a low crystal volume per foot resulting in less signal loss and distortion. Conductors consist of multiple solid gauges that are mathematically and tonally chosen to support low, mid and high frequencies for a natural sounding cable. Individually insulating each conductor yields zero strand interaction and better sound quality. It is important to understand that music passing through the speaker cable, is actually an AC voltage, so when voltage passes through twisted wire, there will be additional magnetic fields. Tributaries Star-Quad design not only alternates the positive and negative signal conductors but also alternates the twisted lays in each multi-gauge conductor. Alternating lays cancels all levels of magnetic distortion. The Mark II cables are silver soldered onto proprietary spade lugs and locking banana plug connectors made with Tellurium (TE) copper increasing conductivity and strength. The end result is a dead-quiet neutral sounding cable that accurately produces the sound of live music
The Series 8 Mark II Star-Quad Bi-Wire speaker cable is stocked in each in lengths from 4 foot to 12 foot lengths with custom lengths available.
