Product information "Cable Base - 2405"

High-end and hi-fi systems are a combination of high-precision and filigree devices. Perfectly coordinated, they are capable of reproducing music in outstanding quality. However, in order for the components to work perfectly, they must be kept as free from interference as possible, just like high-precision measuring instruments. The same applies to the connection cables. However, interference can occur in many different ways. In addition to the typical electromagnetic interference, which can be minimized by good shielding, for example, mechanical vibrations and shocks also affect playback quality. The Referenz cable bases have been specially developed for cables. They also have a special gel incorporated in their base and additional natural rubber bands to accommodate the freely suspended cables. As well as absorbing vibrations, the Referenz cable bases also keep the cable at a distance from the floor, reducing unwanted capacitance and the impact on the electronics.

"Once the gel-armored wobble candidates have been placed and the cables tamed, it's time for the ears. And they can rejoice. Floating parquet flooring is not the best guarantee for comfortable silence, and the speaker cables obviously appreciate the reduced impact sound: the music seems more transparent and balanced from the very first note and detaches itself even more naturally from the speakers. I hadn't expected that. Lifted sounds better: even the relatively stiff StraighWire Melody speaker cables can lift the in-akustik Reference Cable Bases off the floor, which is then rewarded with a sonic gain" HighResMac | 04-2017

"Physics can be explained and is ultimately audible. At first glance, the formulas shown may seem “Bohemian villages” to the layman. In fact, electrical interference can be clearly reproduced in terms of sound, and not only with cable designs such as the Air Helix series. Ergo: Everything done right, in-akustik!"

Description

High-end and hi-fi systems are a combination of high-precision and filigree devices. Perfectly coordinated, they are capable of reproducing music in outstanding quality. However, in order for the components to work perfectly, they must be kept as free from interference as possible, just like high-precision measuring instruments. The same applies to the connection cables. However, interference can occur in many different ways. In addition to the typical electromagnetic interference, which can be minimized by good shielding, for example, mechanical vibrations and shocks also affect playback quality. The Referenz cable bases have been specially developed for cables. They also have a special gel incorporated in their base and additional natural rubber bands to accommodate the freely suspended cables. As well as absorbing vibrations, the Referenz cable bases also keep the cable at a distance from the floor, reducing unwanted capacitance and the impact on the electronics.

High-end and hi-fi systems are a combination of high-precision and intricately made devices. Perfectly attuned to each other, they allow music to be played back in outstanding quality. To ensure that all components can function flawlessly, they need to be kept free of interference to the greatest extent possible, just like high precision measuring equipment does. The same also applies for the connection cables.

Interference is caused in a number of different ways. Along with typical electromagnetic interference, which can, for example, be minimised by using good shielding, mechanical vibrations and shocks also have an impact on the playback quality.

Added to this are the effects of capacitive coupling between conductors and floors, which affect loudspeakers cables in particular. The conductors form unwanted capacitance, not just in interplay with each other, but also with other surfaces in the immediate surroundings. A good way to counteract this is by increasing the distance to the surfaces. As a rule, a few centimetres suffice.

Vibrations are caused in different ways and they can be transmitted by structure-borne and air-borne noise.

Structure-borne noise refers to vibrations that are exhibited by a body, such as the housing of a device. An example of this is the loudspeaker box. The membranes of the speakers are stimulated, making them vibrate. However, as the membranes feature a mechanical connection with the loudspeaker housing, they also transfer vibrations to the housing. The vibrations will be stronger or weaker according to the housing weight and the insulation. The vibrations are also transferred to the surface on which the loudspeakers are placed, this being the floor. Two things now occur. On the one hand, the floor emits some of the structure-borne energy as airborne sound (resulting in the typical droning noise), while on the other hand, the structure-borne noise is transferred, for example, to the cable placed on the floor. More about the effects of this later on.

Airborne sound refers to vibrations that are transferred through the air and that are audible for humans (with the exception of infrasound and ultrasound). The primary purpose of a hi-fi system is to produce sound. However, airborne noise not only stimulates the eardrum, but also acts on all other surfaces it reaches. This causes the walls, floors and other surfaces, and ultimately the hi-fi components and cables, to vibrate as well.

The combination of airborne and structure-borne noise not only causes glasses in a display case to vibrate mechanically, but all components, including the cable used for a hi-fi signal chain, as well. Experiments have shown that the sound from the components and from the cables is impaired by the vibrations. One reason for this is, for example, the capacity values of components in relation to each other, which constantly change due to the vibrations. In order to minimise these so-called microphonic effects, the components must be isolated from the surface on which they are placed.

This can be done by using the Reference High Tech Gel Absorber, for example, for appliances and loudspeakers. Their core contains a special gel, which physically converts the vibrations into heat.

The Reference Cable Bases have been developed specifically for cables. Their base also contains a special gel, along with natural rubber strips, in which the cables can float freely. Along with absorbing the vibrations, the Reference Cable Bases also keep the cables at a distance to the floor. This reduces unwanted capacitances and reduces the effects on the electronics.

LS-2405 AIR Pure Silver
High-end speaker cable Quality: Referenz AIR Helix Point-to-Point | Multicore | Pure Silver
Connection type: SBW | Length: 3 m | Connector: BFA & Spade
AIR technology is a milestone in our more than 46-year company history and is causing a sensation in the hi-fi industry worldwide. The approach itself sounds relatively banal: The physically induced losses must be minimized in order to transmit the original music signal as authentically and neutrally as possible. And, thanks to the AIR technology, loss-free transmission is closer than ever before. It leads to a significantly better reproduction, which is not only subjectively audible, but also objectively measurable. The insulation (or dielectric) of the AIR cables is practically perfect thanks to the air insulation, and hardly affects the sound at all. The structure, dimensions and arrangement of the conductors are optimized, and approach the limits of what is physically possible. Adding another highlight to this perfect audiophile foundation, we then focused on the conductor material of the cables. Copper in the appropriate purity is already a very good conductor. A superconductor, where electrical resistance is zero, would be perfect, of course. Unfortunately, superconducting materials require temperatures of at least -70 degrees. Under realistic operating conditions, the best conducting material we have is currently silver. At 61.35 S/m (Siemens pro Meter), its conductivity is approximately six percent superior to that of copper. However, this precious metal is about 100 times more expensive. Below you can learn more about the outstanding technical features of this cable, the innovations in the 5th generation and the physical principles used in the AIR technology.

Phono-2405 AIR | SME - RCA
High-end phono cable Quality: Referenz AIR Helix Point-to-Point
Length: 1 m | Connector: SME > 2 x RCA
The good old record sounds more vibrant than ever. The demand is astonishing, even for experts. The figures for records sold are increasing just as surprisingly as the number of record players. It’s a real boom. But how to improve the sound? One way is to use a new, better cable between the tonearm and the phono amplifier. The Phono-2405 AIR is a cable created to deliver top sound. What sets it apart is an absolutely unique air insulation, called the Air Helix. We have developed a special clip for this technology. It separates the two cable bundles, keeps them apart, and virtually embeds them in air. Using a large number of these clips, it is possible to route earth and signal extremely stably over longer distances. Why the effort? With this approach it is possible to pass on the sensitive signals without slowing them down - the result is fast and high-resolution sound. The Super Speed waveguides are threaded by hand and the clips are fitted with great care in the company's own factory. After this, the resulting Air Helix is also shielded and fitted with the PE network jacket by hand. Finally, the rhodium-plated connectors are fitted and cable functionality is tested. Because it's all about the most important, smallest signals: There is nowhere in the audio world where smaller currents flow that need to be passed on perfectly. The signal level of an MM or MC system is extremely sensitive, at just a few thousandths of a volt. In addition to this, the systems have an inductive character. In combination with the cable capacitance, they form what is known as an oscillating circuit, which favors specific frequencies. If these frequencies are unfavorable due to excessively high capacitance, this has a major effect on the harmony of the sound. Extremely low capacitance and dielectric losses are just two advantages of the Referenz Phono -2405 AIR. They form the basis for unadulterated enjoyment of your vinyl jewels. The sound of good records can hardly be resolved in a finer way than this. Click here and discover the exciting details
