The stranded signal lines are made of VDH’s new developed highly advanced FUSION conductor material and are furthermore embedded in a conductive layer containing VDH’s Linear Structured Carbon ®. The sonic result is a very detailed signal transmission with a superb spacious character. There is no sign of any sonic harshness or lack of definition.
The jacket and insulation throughout the cable are made of HULLIFLEX ® 4, a very rugged insulation material which provides outstanding protection.
In The INSPIRATION HYBRID four star quad configured signal lines surround a central ground lead.
The signal lines are intended to be pairwise combined to form a twin lead loudspeaker cable with a total cross-section area of 2 x 3.94 mm² and a resistance of 2 x 1.4 Ohm/100 m. The central ground lead is intended to serve as an optional ground connection between any amplifier and loudspeaker’s ground terminals.
Next to the signal lines’ star quad configuration and separate ground lead, additional protection against R.F. interference is provided by the cable’s heavy braided screen, which should be grounded at the amplifier side and be left disconnected at the loudspeaker end.
Having four signal lines, The INSPIRATION HYBRID is also suitable to be used as a bi-wiring or bi-amping loudspeaker cable;
(Total cross-section area: 4 x 1.97 mm²; Resistance: 4 x 2.8 Ohm/100 m).
