Silver Serpent® AIR Audio Interconnect Cable Overview


Years in the making and our first upgraded RCA Interconnect design in over 10 years. The wait was worth it! The Silver Serpent AIR analog RCA interconnect builds on the success of our hugely popular and well-reviewed Silver Serpent RCA interconnects. The Silver Serpent AIR cables are a substantial step up in performance. We changed from a stranded-core to a solid-core silver-coated copper conductor. We also upgraded our dielectric material from a great foam HDPE dielectric to a fantastic air tube core. Essentially the only thing in contact with the conductor is AIR-the best and most non-destructive dielectric material.

How does this change in construction affect the sound? You will get amazing clarity and detail. You will get an improved soundstage. The voices and instruments sound more realistic. There is no harshness in the sound and you will experience no listener fatigue. EVERYTHING IS BETTER!

Silver is the conductivity KING when It comes to audio cables. Gold is good, copper is great, but silver is the best! Silver Serpent AIR RCA Interconnects contain silver in the conductor. Silver, a precious metal, is the ONLY metal with a higher electrical conductivity than copper. Silver Serpent AIR Audio Interconnects use 99.999% pure silver. The electrical conductivity of silver is 106% of that of annealed copper on the IACS scale. Even though the cost of silver is much greater than copper, its sonic benefits are immediately apparent. We also use ultra-pure copper in our Silver Serpent AIR RCA Interconnects. The addition of copper brings “warmth” to the audio sound-complementing the sonic detail from the silver. The Silver Serpent AIR RCA Interconnects strike a unique balance between outstanding performance and cost.

Silver Serpent AIR Audio Interconnect Cable Technical Information

  • Solid-core silver-coated conductors.
  • Amazingly low 14.4 pF/ft capacitance.
  • Air tube insulation.
  • 95% braided shielding.
  • Highly flexible.
…a lot of very fine and grain-free frequency extension and insight, a fine midrange with good stereo separation, and a tidy, ordered yet still deep bass…They have some giant-killing properties
Alan Sircom (HiFi+ Magazine - Silver Serpent AIR Audio Interconnects review)

The hybrid construction gives all of the sonic benefits of silver (dynamic high frequencies) and all of the sonic benefits of copper (deep, tight bass response). The combination of silver, low-attenuation, and top-notch quality insulation makes this a world-class audio cable.

Fixed a hum with my Subwoofer!!!

I had a hum with my Subwoofer which didnt completely go away even after changing amps..this cable fixed it! I had Monoprice Onix cable and also tried an Amazon one and the hum was still there so i was sure it was not cable related. Then, I decided to try this cable and shockingly enough, the noise was gone. Highly recommended!

Fantastic company that really takes

Fantastic company that really takes care of it's customers. The reviews about the AIR cables being a kin to unpressurizing your ears to be accurate. Open and airy sounding. Bass is tight and clean. No bloating.

Correct investment

correct investment, due to quality:materials, SOUND, price EXTRAORDINARY Price-Performance ratio

Noticeable difference

Replaced budget ($100) Audioquest cable between preamp and amp in modest $4500 setup and, wow, puts AQ to shame. Immediately noticeable is greater instrument separation and detail in large orchestras. Not wasting time with A/B comparisons, but am "discovering" new details in familiar music (Radiohead, Eric Dolphy, Heifetz's Sibelius). Only a few days of listening so far, but enjoying long listening sessions without wanting to stop, which bodes well. Thought I'd give these a try based on the price and reviews of other products by the same manufacturer. Very happy camper. The only down side is it now makes me want to upgrade the electronics.

Decent quality. A little bright sounding.

As most silver interconnects tend to be, these are bright sounding compared to copper. Depending on your system, these may be an improvement or not. These are more bright than the much more expensive VanDenHull (sp?) interconnects I bought years ago and still use. Silver is usually more revealing and can be bright sounding. If your current system needs a little help in the upper mid range and treble, these may be the solution for you.
