Silver Anniversary-XT has been specifically designed as the natural replacement for the multi-award winning Silver Anniversary speaker cable. Combining the features of Silver Anniversary with the added enhancement of X-TUBE™ technology this cable combats skin effect and delivers stunning detail for music and movies alike.
At low frequencies both X-TUBE™ and conventional stranded/solid core speaker cables convey signals in a linear way. However, at high frequencies, X-TUBE™ retains a near-linear signal transfer, whereas the conventional cable fails to conduct uniformly across the entire conductor area. The result is that X-TUBE™ delivers greater fidelity across the audio spectrum which would other wise be lost in ordinary cables.
Understanding Skin Effect
In standard speaker cables at high frequencies current flow is highest at the periphery with rapidly deteriorating current density towards the centre of the conductor. The effect of this is to reduce the actual cross sectional area of the cable at 15kHz to less than 75% of that at low frequencies. This results in higher distortion and compromises the performance of the cable.
The combination of X-TUBE™ technology and a polycore cable topology exhibits much lower self-inductance and is therefore less affected by this problem. The polycore topology reduces loop inductance to levels only achievable using more costly and difficult to terminate cables.
As a result Silver Anniversary-XT speaker cable produces greater high frequency detail, less distortion and overall superior performance.
