New AIR mains cables

Music is always very dynamic and when it is being played it produces an extremely variable power consumption at integrated amplifiers, power amplifiers or powered loudspeakers. The rapidly changing increase and decrease of power causes extreme current peaks, which generate strong magnetic fields as well as radiated interference and lead to power losses at cable and contact resistances. However, even these current peaks must be fed to the components quickly and without loss. Any inhibited current flow, no matter where it occurs in the hi-fi/High End chain, has a negative influence on the sound. As is known from physics, electrical conductors not only have a resistance but also capacitive and inductive properties that disturb the flow of energy from the socket to the hi-fi device. Therefore the power line from the wall socket and from the power strip or power station to the hi-fi/High End system plays a very important role.

 

For these reasons, we have developed special mains cables. They are based on the legendary Air technology, which we have already used, for example, for the speaker cables LS-4004 AIR or LS-2404-AIR and which have caused a sensation in the High End scene worldwide. The individual conductors are held at fixed distances by means of the specially developed clips and isolated from each other by air. The "air dielectric" ensures low capacities between the conductors. The multicore design compensates for the interference and magnetic fields caused by the current peaks. This considerably minimises the line inductance. In addition, the skin effect is greatly reduced by the large number of individual wires. This is caused by the steep current flanks that accompany high frequencies. By distributing the current over many wires, the actual usable conductor cross-section is increased, in addition to a general increase in overall cross-section.Thanks to these technical refinements, the AIR mains cables are able to supply the components with power even in extremely dynamic passages, and therefore can unleash the full potential of your electronics.
