Aurealis Audio has released two new speakers cables using the the Duelund DCA16GA wire. This is multi-strand wire in a cotton and oil dielectric. It was developed by Duelund to replicate the wonderful tonal qualities of the original Western Electric 16 awg speaker cable.
Listening tests have shown that this wire gets close to the detail and sound staging of our remarkable Litz speaker cables (Litz 201, 202, and 303) but at a more affordable price. Customers so far have give the wire a big thumbs up which matches the favourable overseas reviews that Duelund have been picking up for their new creation.
Two speaker cables are available: The twisted pair which is 16 awg, and the 4-wire braid which is equivalent to 13 awg. The 4-wire braid version has more detail and is a little more open sounding and is especially recommended for higher powered amplifiers and/or longer than normal runs.
Bulk wire is also available in 16 awg and 20 awg. See last two items on this page.
- 16 awg tin-plated copper in oil and cotton insulation
- terminated in genuine Swiss multi-contact banana plugs (AKA z-plugs)
- 4-wire braid configuration - more current capacity than twisted pair and a touch more open sounding
- Cardas silver eutectic solder used
