b. REDLEVEL Loudspeaker Cables
The REDLEVEL cable form for interconnects is a simple-yet-elegant thin-walled PTFE ("Teflon") tube in a coaxial arrangement of pure-copper woven tubes. The Positive Leg of the speaker cable contains a braid of pure bare copper wire, and an air tube with one of several conductors (listed below). The Return Leg of the speaker cable consists of a braid of pure bare-copper wire alone. This coaxial arrangement of thin, braided copper tubes ensures minimization of skin effect and proximity effect, low inductance, and also adds the performance of our select conductors carefully hand-run within our PTFE air-tube.
Center conductors are formed in-house to ensure uniform placement within the tube in order to maximize velocity and minimize capacitance. They are carefully run by hand through the central tube.

These conductor options are as follows:
The Tube Mk. II: A hollow, pure-copper tube with a 0.008" thick wall. Annealed dead-soft, The Tube is formed in-house into an undulating wave pattern before being hand-run into the PTFE tube.
“ Music leaves the speakers and travels around your listening space, bringing you into contact with the instruments in a more intimate “feeling” way. It is like being there.” – David Robson, HiFiPig.com
Lupo Mk. II: A double-run of 24 AWG 99.999% pure solid-core silver, annealed dead-soft, and formed in-house into and undulating wave pattern before being hand-run into the PTFE tube.
“The Lupo cables should cause a rather wolfish grin if you prioritize a fully lit-up dimensionally liberated presentation with detail galore.” ~ Srajan Ebaen, 6Moons.com
The Matrix Mk. II: An intricate and delicate braid of 32 individually-enameled pure copper solid strands, braided on a special machine that we had custom-manufactured foe the purpose. Matrix Mk. II is carefully formed in-house into an undulating wave pattern before being hand-run through the PTFE tube.
Available in XLR (balanced) configuration, as well. CLICK HERE
Triode Mk. II: A careful combination of The Tube's tubular copper conductor and The Matrix's intricate lattice of 32 individually enameled, braided pure copper conductors. Triode is a very finely made conductor that is small and not so very easy to manufacture, but the results are - to my ears - truly worth the trouble.
Ultarnova: This takes a 99.999% pure silver ribbon that has been annealed dead soft, carefully (as in very carefully) twists it into a gentle helix, and then sends it, by hand, down an air-filled Teflon tube. The special construction lends Ultranova a high velocity in a fast (air) dielectric, with lots of surface area as well as lots of conductor mass. This what I personally consider to be a “high information” cable.
