Cables
There is a lot of "snake oil" out there (look it up on Google).  Cable should seamlessly and transparently transmit the sound, without adding or subtracting from it in any way.  Any cable that purports to be difficult, different or sensitive, very probably is.  We understand cable, we are engineers, and we know what sounds right.

If you buy the right cables the first time, it will save you money in the long run, take a long deep breath and just go for it.

Timestep cables have Furutech connectors fitted, these are made in Japan to the highest standards.

Interconnects Cables RCA phono
Interconnects transfer information from a source such as a CD Player or Turntable to the preamplifier.  They must have low inductance, minimal capacitance, good linearity, good frequency response and must not suffer from any form of microphony.  Thin sliver plated wire has its place in Microwave engineering but can suffer from microphony and can be highly capacitive.

QED Sliver Spiral CD to Amplifier cable. The clarity, natural tonal balance and resolving power of this cable are simply stunning. It captures everything from the finest detail to the loudest transient with effortless transparency and poise.
  QED Silver Spiral  1m Retail price £95
  QED Qunex2  0.5M Retail price £30

Interconnects Cables XLR Balanced
The best way to connect the Marantz SA-11S1 and SA-7S1 CD players to the PM-11S1, SC-11S1 & SC-7S2 via fully balanced XLR connectors.  And to connect the SC-7S2 preamplifier to the dual mono-block amplifiers MA-9S2 that you may want to locate next to the individual loudspeaker (a different length for each)?  Price each, you will need two for stereo.

Loudspeaker Cables
The Usher R-1.5 will source 80 amps of current, not many cables can handle this.  Loudspeaker cables are notionally better if they are big, but  copper is very expensive.  Loudspeakers often exhibit low impedances and heavy low loss cable is important to get the power from the amplifier.  We must never forget that loudspeakers will generate significant "back emf" and this should be minimised, again heavy cable achieves this.  When using thin and "special" cable, the amplifier cannot properly  "couple" with the loudspeakers and this will give a characteristic sound. The cable sounds differently but this is not good, as we said above "the cable should seamlessly and transparently transmit the sound, without adding or subtracting from it in any way".

Premium Van Damme - Bi Wire Timestep Cable    4 x 4.0mm≤
An affordable Bi Wire cable.  Bi Wiring stops the back E.M.F. from entering the tweeter.   The cables are joined at the amplifier where the impedance is virtually zero.  This improvement in sound quality is very noticeable and worthwhile.

Premium Van Damme Studio Timestep Cable   2 x 6.0mm
The Studio Cable has the lowest resistance of any 2 way loudspeaker cable we know, it's 6.0mm
construction is the largest of it's type. Bass will have the solidity and control that you always wanted. The multiple strands eliminate skin effect and allow your amplifier to properly and effectively control your loudspeakers, giving you dynamics and imagery unlike any other cable.

Budget Van Damme - Bi Wire Timestep Cable Bi520   4 x 2.5mm≤
An affordable 4 x 2.5mm≤ Bi Wire cable specifically designed buy us for the Usher 520 loudspeaker.  Bi Wiring stops the back E.M.F. from entering the tweeter.  The 520's are unique in their size in that they have separate crossovers for both the Bass and Treble units allowing a 4 way cable Bi Wire to be used.  The cables are joined at the amplifier where the impedance is virtually zero.  This improvement in sound quality is very noticeable and worthwhile. 


  Cable tested before despatch £2.95 a metre
