Audiophile Bi-wired adapters – a report from Ludwig Hegel – Poland
What to do when the speaker is a single cable, terminated by two plugs (banana, forks, pins). And the speaker has up to two pairs of speaker terminals?
Audiophile Bi-wired adapters
The most common, most straightforward, and cheapest solution is to install plaques bridge connecting each of the two pairs of terminals. audio cables
So many companies are progressing speaker factory equipping speakers in the invention. Another remedy, already more sophisticated, is the use of so-called—jumpers speaker wires or fragments. And fitted with plugs/fork – and through the respective pairs of connection terminals “plus” and “minus.” They do some of what’s better – but rather their more expensive construction speaker.
(Surely any, the solution has a beneficial effect on the ultimate sound system – he was convinced about this a long time ago. He is using in place of the usual plaques jumpers Sevenrods company with silver plugs). The advantages and disadvantages of such a process.
My column Living Voice Auditorium R3 constructed in such a way that they have two pairs of mounted speaker terminals in each rear cavity boxes. However, noble, the English manufacturer did not provide him with any plaques or the more cables ordinarily open (i.e., Jumpers). The buyer must cope on their own.
The easiest, but not a cheap option, there are so. But, what to do when these wires can not connect to the amplifier. Because this has only a single speaker tap? Here comes the big problem. You can make use of the following solution – dual wire (bi-wire) from the composite amplifier (twisted) to two plugs, and the speaker – already a classic – four plugs for four terminals. There are some combinations and frills.
Therefore I use my column Living Voice Auditorium R3 classic single wires (usually these are XLO Ultra plus U6-10) and jumpers speaker Sevenrods. However, this is not the perfect antidote. Also, the cavity of the terminals in the columns of Living Voice is narrow and small. And nuts terminals are quite shabby – few “audiophile,” gently writing!
And it’s not in the columns for 500 PLN, but about 20 000 PLN! So when my colleague from Lithuania, Mr Paul Goodwin, informed me that he was adding the Audiophile Bi-wired adaptor cables, my joy knew no bounds! These adapters are a kind of fork in a two-wire cable single conductor. The one part is a socket into which plugs the banana plug speaker cable. On the other, this cable splits (with splitter) for two – each completed banana plugs. In this way, two single wires can be connected seamlessly to the speaker terminals double columns. Simple and brilliant! Audiophile Bi-wired adapters
According to Paul Goodwin, the cable adapters constructed in the same way as the Extreme series of cables from Perkune. 24-carat gold-plated collars (for distributing the audio cables). For these double-screwed connections with completed 24-carat gold banana plugs. The reason for the use of screw connections is to eliminate the need for soldering, which ensures the integrity of the audio signal and allows you to “hear more music.”
The use of aluminium foil brings better sound insulation and helps to eliminate unwanted noise sources. And also improve protection against heat and moisture. Paul justifies the presence of aluminium foil in the following way: The ability of sound absorption by aluminium foil allows you to receive unwanted noise directly at the source and prevent its further spread. The aluminium foil provides the effect of 85% as a noise insulator. Only 15% of the corresponding sound passes through it and is an ideal component for use in audio cables. ”
The cables are in aluminium foil (which is a dielectric first line). Subsequent duplex Corporate solution AirGap provides isolation from external interference and vibration. Left sides of a regular speaker cable connected to the converter bi-wire. The right side of a standard speaker cable connected to the converter bi-wire. Two-wire cable conversion provides a quick and easy way to convert a two-wire speaker cable to the four-wire bi-wire.
Finally, a few words about the sound. Each additional interference with components in the audio path frequently brings destructive effects. Therefore, the intervention must do as little as possible. And, they are the least burdensome. As I wrote, the plaques (jumpers) speaker than I use that for many years – they always brought a deterioration of sound. Until now, I’ve still used jumpers speaker, knowing that they are harmful to keep music than conventional plaques. audio cables
However, the use of adapters bi-wire speaker Perkune Audiophile Cables Company (in place of jumpers) made the sound became more transparent and more extensive than in the case of jumpers. Of course, this is not a big change, but significant and noticeable. It sounds like gained more substance and credibility. He became a tad more dociążony and importantly – more resolved. The fact that Perkune adapters are not cheap because the cost of about 397 euros per set, but on balance (i.e., the balance of gains and losses in the system hi-fi) are a reasonable and complementary choice. With me are permanent!

SHOULD YOU Bi-wire?
A topic that’s split the hi-fi community for years so here’s our view on the matter. So you’ve got your new shiny set of speakers (hooray!), and now you’re ready to connect them to your amplifier. A question on some Hi-Fi owners’ lips is to bi-wire or not to bi-wire?
Hang on a second, what is Bi-wiring?
Bi-wiring is a way of connecting your speakers to your amp using two pairs of connecting wires rather than one. Some speakers come with two pairs of binding posts — one pair for the high frequencies and the other pair for the low rates. In a standard set up, one pair of wires carries the full range musical signal from the amplifier to each of the loudspeakers.
Are you doubling the connections?
Bi-wiring to minimises impedance differences between high and low frequencies and their impact on the overall sound you experience. The result is an improvement in the midrange that many enthusiasts believe is significant enough to justify running the additional cable. You may not double the quality of your playback, but you will likely notice a substantial boost in clarity. Bi-wired adapters
The Audiophile Bi-wired adapters are indeed an effortless and convenient way of helping your standard system transform into a Bi-wired system, giving you all the benefits.
Getting the best results from your system as it relates to bi-wiring also relies on the quality of your speakers, amplifier/receiver, and speaker cable. You also have to factor in listening preferences, since no two sets of ears are alike. Ultimately, what sounds right is up to you.
