"Holographic Presentation, Clarity, Openness, Airiness"
Integrating technology from Kimber Kable's critically acclaimed Model 88 Black Pearl loudspeaker cable, the Kimber Select KS-1030 single-ended interconnect utilizes the company's unique Black Pearl silver conductors in an orthogonally braided geometry. This superior conductor works in conjunction with other proprietary technologies to guard against signal distorting influences, both electrodynamic and acoustic.
In his February 23, 2000 review for Stereo Times, Adnan Arduman praises the SK-1030 for its "holographic presentation, clarity, openness, airiness, resolution, high frequency and low frequency extension, and accuracy of timbre." According to, "It was as if I had lifted many veils between the music and myself.
You'll have to spend a lot more money to match the performance of Select KS-1030. Termination is with WBT-0102 Ag RCAs, plated with fine pure silver. The body is constructed with brass and then platinum or gold plated to give a nice aesthetic appeal. The central contact assembly is made of Ultramid and the negative contact uses Dyneon. The barrel is comprised of brass with a shiny black piano lacquer finish.

"It was as if I had lifted many veils between the music and myself. Fortunately, the resolving power of the Select KS-1030 was not accompanied by added edginess. I found them to be very natural and musical, but be warned--these cables are like daylight--they are ruthlessly revealing and they will expose all the imperfections of your system's weakest element(s)!"
