Kimber has now announced the Carbon 8 and Carbon 16 loudspeaker cables
As with the interconnect cable, the speaker cable features an electrostatically dissipative carbon polymer between the Teflon dielectric and VariStrand conductors to improve overall conductivity, “…by 5% when compared to a standard VariStrand 19.5AWG,” said the company.
More than that, “…it improves voltage distribution within the insulating dielectric by virtue of the impedance gradient,” it said.
The Carbon 8 loudspeaker cable features eight braided 19.5AWG conductors. Its big brother, the Carbon 16, features 16 of the same 19.5AWG conductors.
Each cable is supplied with Kimber banana plugs as standard and is also available with Kimber Postmaster spades for an additional cost.
Both loudspeaker cables are braided to help, “…reduce conducted and airborne RFI from entering the audio chain.”
