Silver Serpent Digital AES/EBU XLR Cable Overview
AES/EBU (developed by the Audio Engineering Society and the European Broadcast Union) is the two-channel digital standard for interconnecting digital devices. The cables in this section are the type for use with an XLR connection. While AES/EBU cables may look like ordinary microphone cables, they are very different. Unlike microphone cables, which are designed to handle signals in the analog audio bandwidth, AES/EBU cables are 110-ohm impedance cables used for digital AES/EBU signals and handle a much wider bandwidth.
Silver is the conductivity KING when It comes to audio cables. Gold is good, copper is great, but silver is the best! The Silver Serpent Digital AES/EBU digital XLR cable contain silver in the conductor. Silver, a precious metal, is the ONLY metal with a higher electrical conductivity than copper. The Silver Serpent Digital AES/EBU digital XLR cableuse 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, it's sonic benefits are immediately apparent. We also use ultra-pure copper in our Silver Serpent Digital AES/EBU digital XLR cable. The addition of copper brings “warmth” to the audio sound-complementing the sonic detail from the silver. The Silver Serpent Digital AES/EBU digital XLR cable strikes a unique balance between outstanding performance and cost.
Silver Serpent Digital AES/EBU Audio Cable Technical Information
- Features audiophile-grade Neutrik Male to Female XLR connectors with silver contacts.
- Stranded-core silver-coated conductors.
- Low 13 pF/ft capacitance.
- Nitrogen-injected hard-cell insulation.
- True 110-ohm impedance.
- It also works for digital AES/EBU.
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).
I've played the cable game, with exotic interconnects with 4 figure price tags, and while they all have their individual charms I keep coming back to BetterCables. They do the job, without calling attention to themselves in any way, which is exactly what cabling should do!
