The wire used for this cable is something very special and made only for me. Pure OCC Silver with Pure Gold injected into it to cover and microscopic gaps the silver might still have. This gives the signal an ultra smooth surface with no crystal boundaries. The gold also add a touch of extra punch in the low end frequency response that is often found a little wanting in silver cables. The total wire diameter is 24awg. This cable is a first to use two different diameter stranded wire within the cable. After a great deal of R&D this is a configuration I have found supplies a superior sound when used with this OCC silver cable.
