An Evolutionary Step Forward
Cardas Cross speaker cables are an evolutionary step forward from the company's best-selling Hexlink 5C cables. Cross replaces and updates Hexlink, besting this great cable with an advanced design that offers more detail, cleaner image focus, and greater transparency.
Medium-size Cardas Cross uses a symmetrical quad-axial "Golden Section" constant "Q" Crossfield litz conductor of Pure Copper. The 238 discrete 10 awg conductors ensure maximum signal transfer, while the double shielding screens out EMI and RFI noise. Insulation is pure teflon combined with air dielectric to keep energy accumulation to the barest minimum.
Constant Q Meets Golden Section
The Constant "Q" design of Cardas Cross arranges different diameter conductors in ascending order of strand cross-section from the center toward the cable outer circumference. Conductors are sized according to Cardas' proprietary Golden Section Stranding, which earned the company an award for "The Most Significant Contribution of the Advancement of High End Audio in Cable and Accessory Design" from the Academy for the Advancement of High End Audio. In real world terms, the ground-breaking design reduces cable resonance produced by fluctuating current flow for a clearer, more in-focus sonic signature.
Each and every Cardas Cross cable is carefully hand-inspected, then hand-terminated using the highest quality rhodium-plated spade connectors.Regular: 1.5M $1,229.00/pair.
