Express Hb XLR (Pair)
Manufacturer's Description:Express Wire:
The Express wires are a true evolution. We learned from the success and critical acclaim of our first foray into high performance audio cables.
We've added practicality and flexibility through multi-core wires. Enhancing the sonic qualities to even greater heights.
Express wires are unique. The product of more ingenuity and hours of listening comparisons. Around the purest of copper conductors we utilize special materials to minimize inductance, capacitance and resistance. All gauges and densities are formulated around the omnipresent S/G S/G Ratio.
The Express range features three designs that are optimized for their respective applications.
The Golden Ratio for signal transmission is ETI's patented Signal/Ground or S/G Ratio. Formulated from listening experience and physics fundamentals, the S/G Ratio is applied to many aspects of the cables' conductivity to optimize the electron flow. Key to its implementation are the deliberate differences, physical and electrical, between a cable's signal and ground conductors.
Most famously applied to the solid copper cores of cables, research into the S/G Ratio was extended and is now applied to the unique wires used in the Express Cu and Express H range.
When implemented successfully audio system performance is appreciably better. Increased detail and smooth reproduction deliver a high end presentation that good music deserves.
The Hybrid Theory is the metallurgical application of the S/G Ratio. Hybrid connectors are the new performance standard for ETI cables.
Our development of high performance audio connectors from the best conductor metals available concluded that Copper connectors are a superb standard for musical enjoyment and Silver is beneficial only in certain applications.
Irresistibly superior experimental results were achieved when researching a collaboration between Copper and Silver, using the differential conductivity to reinforce the S/G Ratio effect of the wiring.
ETI's Express Hb are completely optimized with Hybrid connectors.
ETI's traditional values are preserved with the new range of Express Cables.
Completely new and unique cables, Hybrid Technology and the evolution of the S/G Ratio.
Continued commitment to high conductivity metals- Silver and Copper- the multi-stranded wires are made from Copper and our commitment to continual development has created the Hybrid Theory.
The new Express wire configurations are calculated using the fundamentals of the S/G Ratio.
Multi-stranded copper and lightweight cable materials have ensured that electron flow is efficient and undiminished and the cables can be physically handled and shaped for any circumstance.
