Wireworld has announced a new speaker cable called the Helicon 16, which will be available in the spring of 2016. The Helicon 16 is a compact, flat, flexible cable that consists of two flat conductors that are twisted and bonded together to stabilize the conductor and eliminate the need for an external jacket. Each cable has 16 parallel copper strands arranged as eight pairs, and the cable will be available with Oxygen-free Copper or Ohno Continuous Cast 7N copper conductors. Pricing has not yet been announced.
Wireworld Cable Technology is pleased to announce the Helicon 16, a new series of compact speaker cables, designed for internal wiring and DIY applications. These highly flexible cables consist of two flat conductors that are twisted and bonded together. This bonded helical structure stabilizes the conductors, eliminating the need for an external jacket. This design also provides the uniquely lifelike sound quality of Wireworld’s patented DNA Helix conductor geometry.
“After years of development, I’ve finally succeeded in creating a 16-gauge cable that sounds close to a direct connection–the scientific reference standard for cable fidelity,” said Wireworld’s president and founder, David Salz. “I am confident that the Helicon 16 makes improvements that speaker designers have not heard with previous cables.”
The Helicon 16’s two flat insulated conductors contain sixteen parallel copper strands that are arranged as eight pairs. The gaps between those pairs are essential, because they channel electromagnetic signal energy to provide audible and measurable improvements in fidelity. The Helicon 16 is also extremely easy to strip and connect to internal or external speaker terminals. This innovative cable will be available with Oxygen-Free copper or Ohno Continuous Cast 7N copper conductors.
Availability: Spring 2016
