Interconnects, speaker cables and main cables in this line include pure silver and pure silver hybrid designs
There’s three cables variants on offer here – brace yourself for a heap of jargon.
SHADOW 2 ANALOGUE INTERCONNECTS
Made from 6 x 24 AWG (basically, the gauge of the cable in US-based measurements), solid-core pure silver (4N, a measurement of purity – 99.99% in this case) conductors per channel and PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) Teflon air-spaced insulation.
The cables have been created with a Helical Array geometry in triple-balanced configuration, one resonance filter/channel and low-metal mass 24k gold over tellurium copper RCA connectors plus Neutrik gold XLR connectors.
SHADOW 2 SPEAKER CABLES
This time you’re looking at 2 x 18 AWG pure silver (4N), 2 x 19 AWG silver-plated OFC (7N) and 2 x 20 AWG silver-plated OFC (7N) solid-core conductors per channel (that’s an 11 AWG per channel equivalent).
PTFE Teflon air-spaced insulation is included with counter-balanced Helical Twist geometry, distributed Gauge technology and two resonance dampers per channel. You’ll also find Dynamique low-metal mass banana (gold over phosphor bronze with PTFE Teflon) and spade (that’s gold over pure copper plus PTFE Teflon) solderless connectors
SHADOW 2 POWER CABLES
Here the cables feature 2 x 20 AWG pure Silver (4N), 2 x 18 AWG Silver-plated OFC (7N) and 3 x 16 AWG Silver-plated OFC (7N) solid-core conductors (2 x 13 AWG equivalent, 1 x 16 AWG ground).
PTFE Teflon Super air-spaced insulation is featured, Helical Array geometry, distributed gauge technology and a resonance filter.
Dynamique gold over copper IEC, US & EU connectors and MS HD (Gold) 13a UK connector are offered.
And if you didn’t understand any of the above? Well, be assured that there’s a lot going on. I hope to review some or most of the above in the future to see if it makes sonic sense.
