Ailsa Achromatic is a sophisticated OCC speaker cable offering discerning audiophiles a true taste of ‘high-end’ performance. Available terminated in Z (Z-plug) or S (spade) versions (contact us for spade connectors)
All cables inevitably lose some of the audio signal and/or add their own colourations. Our newest product range, every aspect of the Ailsa family is designed and engineered to reduce this distortion to extremely low levels – meaning you get more of your music with an absolute minimum taken away or added. Less is indeed more.
As you ascend through our wide range of speaker cables, Ailsa is the first in our product hierarchy to use OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper conductors. With a 3.0mm² diameter, the generous conductor cross-section gives superior low-frequency performance, while carefully optimised construction featuring our (SSG) super-stabilised conductor geometry ensures Ailsa is exceptionally transparent to the signal for a cable of this class. For the dielectric, we use a high-efficiency microporous PTFE which means virtually no ‘smearing’ or other signal degradation.
Our acclaimed low-mass non-conductive Achromatic Z connectors eliminate any possible detrimental effects of magnetic eddy currents, and precision -calibrated cold-weld termination gives a superior connection to conventional solder fixing, with increased signal continuity (fewer ‘barriers’ created by different materials).
The result is a superior cable with minimal discernable character which allows your system to convey a coherent balance of detail, timing and dynamics which might well surprise you.
