The idea is exactly what I have been talking about here and people just laugh. I designed it in Pure engineering point of view. I did a lot of experiment and build a lot of cables to test. It is all about the series INDUCTANCE, NOT the resistance where people here kept talking about without the scientific knowledge. I even posted the formula here, it's only HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICS, not any mystical high math or physics.
The multi cable is to LOWER the inductance. People here do NOT understand even at upper audio frequencies, the reactance ( exactly like resistance) of the cable due to inductance can be in range of 0.2ohm, this make 0.01ohm from cable resistance irrelebant. What make it worst is this reactance cause PHASE SHIFT with frequency. This is like you move the tweeter away to a different spot.
Multiple wire cables drastically reduce inductance of the cable, but increase capacitance of the cable and can make a lot of badly designed amps unstable and give strange sound quality. Then they blame on the cable. Don't think big name amps are ok, My Nakamichi PA-7 designed by the famous Nelson Pass is NOT stable even with my multi wire cable that is already only 1/2 the capacitance of the Kimber Kable. Obviously he doesn't know how to tame amplifiers.
Back to this thread. Different weaving pattern gives different capacitance and produce different sound ( as long as the power amp is stable). I experimented with different weaving patterns. The first picture show two cables of much tighter coupling. I use 6 pairs of 16 gauge speaker cables. I first twisted them into 3 separate pairs, the one labeled (1) braided like the little girl ponytail. (2) Just twisting the 3 pairs together.
The second picture is the lowest capacitance, just 6 pairs twisted together.
They are sounded different, the braided one is the most in your face, the sound stage is right in front and it's too close for my taste. I think only good if you run 12ft or longer. I still like the one in the second picture.
I think the one they posted has the lowest capacitance, it's a step better than 12 gauge Monster and more amps can tolerate the capacitance.
Yes, Speaker cable is just as important as the amp. You can have a very good amp with very high damping factor at high frequency, but the inductance of the cable will lower the damping factor down to less than 20 at higher frequencies.
Like I said, I experimented a lot, cables used is the cheapest of the cheap ebay special copper clad cable........BUT of cause the cable uses the high tech material only found in one place in China!!!!
Ha!!! They can publish a paper on this? I should have published mine a few years ago. It's no different from the idea of Kimber Kable. Obviously they know the theory.
AND it's funny that most people don't understand the first thing about science, joke about this as if they know. Please, stop and learn before talking. It's only High School physics. I showed the formula a few times, it's NOT that hard to understand.
