The REVERIE loudspeaker cables (new for 2014) stereo set
consist of two identical cables, each of which 48 individually
insulated conductive strands, per cable (24 per each positive
and negative runs) ;
Only one cable of the pair is shown at the picture below.
These conductive strands are divided into 6 wire bundles, with
extra insulation between the bundles;
The wire bundles are wrapped around a STEALTH para-vacuum core
(flexible thin wall tubing filled with Helium);
The conductive material is our proprietary copper-based alloy
(roughly 90% copper);
The additives to the alloy (silver and molybdenum) allow us to
achieve the correct tonality which we feel would be impossible
to offer using just plain copper.
