New [?] Wire for headphone cabling...sound the trumpets beat the drums

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I found this new business outfit (started in February 2012) selling the '99% silver+1% gold' alloy wire. - http://www.plussoundaudio.com/home.html

There is a claim on the website that this wire has superior sonic properties compared to copper or silver or silver plated copper wires. - http://www.plussoundaudio.com/about/wires.html

 

"Why silver + 1% gold?

With silver, it transmits electric signals faster with less distortion, including low electrical resistance. The one percent gold provides oxidation and high corrosion resistance. Along with no crystal boundaries and molecular junctions, these advantages makes it a favorite choice and one of the purest wires for audio.

Sound quality:
It has the best transparency sound staging, including quiet and broad bandwidth. Highs are refined and not fatigued. Vocal projects well in a warm signature way. Bright, with emphasis on mids and extra lows, thanks in part of the 1% gold added. Great for all genres."
 
 
What kind of characteristics do each wire have in sound?
It is difficult to describe the sound it produces as everyone has a different ear at hearing sounds. However, it is undeniable the difference between the cables we provide to those from stock cables. Here are our best interpretations on sound quality for each wire:

Copper = 99.9999% pure (Solid), 99.99999% pure (Stranded) - Highs and Mids are slighty emphasized with more bass sound. Great for Rap, Rock, Techno etc.
Silver-Plated Copper = 99.9999% pure (Solid), 99.99999% pure (Stranded) - Brighter, neutral sound with slight emphasis on bass. Great for Classical, Pop, Jazz, etc.
Gold-Plated Copper = 99.9999% pure. Warm sound with emphasis on bass. Great for Pop, Rock, etc.
Silver = 99.99999% pure. Highest quality wire. More third-dimensional soundstage. Bright, with emphasis on bass and mids. Great for all genres.
Silver + 1% Gold = 99.99999% pure (Stranded). Best wire on the market. Enhances every range of sound (high, mid, low). Incredible sound staging. Bright, with emphasis on mid and accented bass, thanks in part of the 1% gold.

im really interested in the company- just found about them cpl weeks ago

as they use upocc wire for all their stuff, without cryo, for dirt cheap prices

eg. upocc copper iem cable for $85

looks like they have copper, spc, silver+1% gold, and other solid core wires (gold plated copper eek.gif)
