Shielded, balanced sound conductor with optimal noise protection. Offers optimal sound quality for situations in which absolutely no risk of interference can be taken.
- single solid core conductor for signal and ground
- silver-plated, oxygen-free copper conductors
- pigment and plasticizer-free high purity polymers
- optimally protected against microphonics
High quality conductor materials
The selection of the right conductor material is crucial for the sound. The basis of all VOVOX® link sound conductors is silver-plated solid-core conductors made from oxygen-free, high purity SPOFHC copper. Because silver has an even better conductivity than copper, the current density is additionally enhanced in the important surface boundary.
VOVOX® sonorus sound conductors are covered with high-tech polymers. Although plastics are not directly involved in the signal transmission, they do have an effect on the sound quality. VOVOX® doesn't use any PVC. Only ultra-pure plastics without plasticizers are used. Even the use of colour pigments is almost completely avoided.
Additional conductor for ground
The conductors within a cable must fulfil several functions. The shield has the main function of protecting the signal conductor from interference. In most cables, the shield is also used as the return signal conductor. VOVOX® consequently separates these functions. This may be a more complex construction, yet it results clearly in better sound quality.
Arrangement of conductors
Current induces magnetic fields in any conductor. If the distance between two conductors is too small, interactions and interferences are created. The result is an audible loss of sound quality. As a result, we arrange the conductors in a well-defined, large distance.
Flexibility and durablity in spite of solid core conductors
To offer maximum sound quality, VOVOX is strictly using solid core and not stranded wires. In order to keep the cables flexible and durable, they are designed in a unique way. Every conductor is seperately coated with a polymer jacketing to form a lead. The various leads are helical stranded and covered by a flexible netting. Due to this construction the wires remain in the neutral axis when flexing the cable. Like this it is possible to prevent the wires from critical compression or tension, they are only smoothly bent.
VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, is lead-free.
