The Type 4 speaker cable model was initially introduced around 1983. It may not have been the most aesthetically pleasing cable, but the performance benefits of its polypropylene insulation were spectacular and highly appreciated. Several evolutionary steps later, the current version of Type 4 was introduced in 1995—a design so well-balanced that it hasn’t changed since then, and it still isn’t changing.
The Type 5 low-distortion and low-noise speaker cable is essentially a Type 4 with better metal material and slightly spaced-apart conductors, reducing interactions between adjacent conductors by 35%.
SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+/LONG-GRAIN COPPER SONIC-SIGNATURE CONDUCTORS A refined combination of grainless-sounding Perfect-Surface Copper+ Sonic-Signature conductors, along with Long-Grain Copper, enables a smooth and natural “lack of character.”
SOLID CONDUCTORS Eliminate harshness and confusion due to strand interaction.
NOISE-DISSIPATION Carbon-loading and direction-controlled conductors provide effective noise dissipation, minimizing noise modulation and amplifier distortion.
STAR-QUAD GEOMETRY Balanced Star-Quad Geometry reduces time-smearing while preserving dynamics and clarity.
