Cabling: the new ISIS interconnects and speaker cable:
ISIS cables… The New Copper Reference
The recently introduced ISIS Reference Copper interconnect cables have been an enormous success, redefining many listeners’ expectations of what was possible with a copper cable. As a result, we have decided to expand the Reference Copper range, and we now present the ISIS LX168 loudspeaker cable and the ISIS Mains cable.
This is not only first true Reference Copper loudspeaker cable in the History of Audio Note (UK) it is also a departure from a design perspective. Previously, all of our cables were intended to be configured with four separate cables per side for true bi-wire configuration, or two separate cables per side for single wire configuration. ISIS LX168 – thanks to its large strand count and 8 True Litz conductor design – can be used in a variety of cost effective and high performance configurations: single cable / single wire, single cable / biwire, twin cable / single wire, twin cable / biwire, quad cable / biwire.
Audio Note (UK) is proud to announce the introduction of a new reference copper interconnect, named ISIS.
As LEXUS can be seen as a copper version of SOGON, so ISIS is a copper version of or flagship interconnect SOOTTO, sharing its geometry and design. Never before has a copper cable offered this level of performance, and it will undoubtedly delight and surprise you in equal measure.
