The Audio interconnect review for the Elite audiophile Interconnect 2.2 meter cable is available on the Tannoy monitor gold website. I think it is important to have my cables tested and reviewed by an independent company. This is the only way for a prospective buyer to be assured of the quality of the cables and I hope that you will enjoy reading the review in the same manner.
It has taken me many years of research and trial and error to discover this but as the saying goes “where there is a will there is a way” and my will was to produce an Audio interconnect cable, which was the best value for money. I am very proud of my cables for two reasons.
The first reason in the way in which they are they are built and second is the sound. The Cable that I use for the interconnects is actually the best quality recording studio microphone cable. The cable has a completely flat frequency response and has minimal resistance and capacitance. And at the same time having an excellent bandwidth.
Capacitance: conductor to shield: < 200 pF/meter, ~60 pF/foot. Capacitance: shield L to shield R: < 90 pF/meter, ~25 pF/foot. Resistance: core < 0.07 Ohms/meter. Resistance: shield < 0.08 Ohms/meter. Inductance: shield < 0.02mH /total length. Inductance: core ~ 0.01mH /total length. Frequency response: 0-10MHz flat: perfect. Square wave response: no distortion from 5Hz up to 2MHz. Channel separation L-R: < 135 dB at 0.77 V RMS, 20 Hz-20kHz, for 2.2 M. better than 140 dB for 1M.
The above figures are from the Audio interconnect review
The Loudspeaker cables
The Loudspeaker cables are terminated with banana connections and are completely solder-free. OFC red copper is used and the outer covering has an additional outer shrink-wrap layer, which provides for the ‘air gap’ cushioning. The cables are terminated with 24K direct gold-plated banana connections supplied from Germany and by using these connections the ultimate quality of sound is retained.
What can I say on the great review!
The only thing is to thank you very much, Hans, for your review on the Audio interconnect cables. And pleased that you liked it so much!
