General Information

SQM Stereo XLR 1 Meter

Looking for a cable that ends your restless quest? Science says you should minimize microphony and maximize shielding. Through a rational approach, cable design is liberated from the mistiness. SQM is the outcome of the ultimate execution of this strategy. This results in an unrivaled transparency.
SQM takes the Grimm Audio cable philosophy of low micro-phonics and proper shielding to the next level. The resulting sound quality is a serious step up from Grimm’s already excellent TPR cable. The way it treats reverb is astonishing, dynamics are greater, it sets a larger and deeper stereo image, and music flows in a disarmingly natural way.

Grimm TPR- ‘Twisted Pair Reference’ cable was developed for the rejuvenated Wisseloord Studios in The Netherlands. Their design focuses on high RF immunity and low microphonics. The symmetry of the cross-section and heavy shielding contribute to high RF immunity. Low microphonics is provided by a special interface layer under the shield and other construction details.
Price $68 Pair 1m

SQM is a balanced cable and we offer it with Neutrik gold plated XLRs. Low microphony requires a meticulous choice of materials to minimize friction induced noise, plus a mechanically tight physical construction. SQM goes a step further here by using carbon doted sheaths around individual conductors and beneath the braided screen. To optimize immunity from electric and magnetic fields the screens are tightly woven (no ‘see-through’) and the conductors are well twisted. Magnetic shielding is further improved by the so called ‘star-quad’ construction after which “Star Quad Master” was named. 475.00€ 1meter pair ( $558.10 at time of review)
