AFA cables are
constructed with a special blend of hybrid alloys that offer better sound
conductivity - the best way to try them is to listen.
Understanding Audiophile Cables
objective of true audiophile couplings is
to enable an audio system to achieve its true musical potential via improved
signal transmission between audio equipment.
A true audiophile coupling is a universal performer
that is designed to improved performance in every spectrum of the listenable sound barrier irrespective of which system it is fitted onto.
In other words, system matching is never in the vocabulary of a true audiophile coupling.
Reality On Audiophile Cables
Finding the true audiophile coupling seems like an impossible task according to many music lovers. Our engineers can explain this phenomenon in detail.
Factors Affecting Sonic Characteristics
There are many factors such as the type of conductor used, skin-effect, core geometry, conductivity, dielectric, impedance value, grain structure of conductors, etc., that can affect the sonic character within an audiophile cable.
The most important of which being the type of conductor used because most of the conductors employed in today's audiophile couplings tend to
be suitable for only one type of system or another.
Basic Sonic Characteristics of Conductors
Gold and silver are probably the most expensive types of conductors employed in high-end audiophile couplings. Their unique sound character is a very detailed and dynamic presentation that impresses initially but prolonged auditioning leads to ear-fatigue due to excessive brightness in the high and mid band. Therefore, they are only suitable for systems that lack high and mid frequency details and dull or overly warm systems. Please note that too much silver in a "sonicly" balanced system can create an unbearable kind of brightness.
Carbon fibre is yet another form of conductor that is employed in some high-end audiophile couplings. Their unique sound character is a very gentle and relaxing presentation of the high and mid frequencies. However, it tends to soften percussive dynamics and lack control in the lower frequency, very often creating a boomy bass effect. They are most suitable for systems that are beefy and harsh.
Titanium is yet another new form of conductor that is employed in some high-end audiophile couplings. It lacks the high frequency details and dynamics when compared with silver and at the same time lacks depth in the mid and lower-mid frequencies when compared with lots of other conductors. Its primary strength is the bone-crunching bass. They are most suitable for systems that lack control in the lower frequency or for controlling boomy bass.
Copper is the most common type of conductor employed in audiophile couplings due to its high conductivity value, available and economical priced. Copper in its purest form is still very much more affordable than silver or gold. Copper has a warm sonic character but lacks dynamic punch when compared to silver or gold, the gentle and relaxing presentation that is offered by carbon fibres and the tight bass offered by titanium.
Extensive research at AFA has produced a revolutionary Hybrid Alloy when employed as conductors in audiophile couplings can improved musical performance in every spectrum of the listenable sound barrier irrespective of which system it is fitted onto.
The Hybrid Alloy yet named is a composition of seven different metals of different percentage being mixed with one equal part of high purity copper. The result is its superb performance derived from the strength of the alloy composition and yet economical enough because it contains fifty percent of copper. Thus, enabling us to bring you high-end performance at mid range prices.
Due to the Hybrid Alloy, our cables have an exclusive character of its own no matter what system it is connected to. The integration is very beautiful with the highs being exceptionally detailed, smooth and warm, the mids being exquisitely refined and rich, the bass is extremely robust, deep and extended with an open, layered and spacious soundstage.
