UK-based Vertere Acoustics has confirmed the availability of a new Redline series of cables, all of which are designed to preserve the “dynamics, harmonic structure and detail” of music.
Vertere believes it has addressed the common issue of corruption of delicate audio signals with a unique conductor design and internal cable architecture. Founder and CEO of Vertere, Touraj Moghaddam, says, “Any cable can only degrade the signal. The best cable is the one that degrades the signal least.”
Redline cables are double shielded with an outer screen braid and a conductive foil, which should provide an “excellent” screen and a mixed ground impedance for low noise. Seven independent high-purity copper (neither pre-used or reclaimed) conductors per channel of different thicknesses and plating surrounded by low-dialectic constant FEP are utilised per channel. This allows flexibility of different configurations for different uses. The six (two thin and four thick) signal conductors are silver plated. The thicker dedicated ground conductor is tin-plated.
Redline analogue cable connectors are all bespoke with gold-plated contacts, and terminations include RCA, DIN, XLR, Tonearm DIN, Mains, Spades and 4mm plugs. The Analogue Interconnect Cable is internally configured in a different manner to the tonearm cable to suit both line level and pre out signals. The analogue cable is connected in a quasi-balanced configuration to suit a “dynamic, complex and wideband” audio signal conducted from source to amplifier or pre-amplifier to power amplifier with clarity and improved low-level detail.
Redline cables are priced at $795 for a 1m interconnect cable, or a 3m pair of loudspeaker cables. Longer lengths per 0.5m are priced at $195. Redline mains cables are $895. For more information, go to the Vertere Acoustics website here.
