Pure Cryogenic Silver Wire with Cotton Sleeving from Audio Consulting - Made in Switzerland

We offer this wire for the DIYer or manufacturer that wants to create his own speaker, line or digital cable. The Polyesterimide insulation is formed right on the silver metal as this is the only guarantee to avoid oxidation, silver sulphide formation or deposition of impurities over time. The cotton that is woven around the already famous silver wire avoids the difficulties encountered when trying to pull cotton or other sleeves over the wire.
This wire is 100% the same as the previous Audio Consulting 0.5mm cryo silver wire, just the cotton is new. It is woven on in Switzerland. The entire wire is then cryogenically treated. (Note heat-shrink is not included.)
Use this solid core insulated silver wire in your CD player, pre-amplifier, power amplifier, valve gear, in speakers and more! The 0.5 mm solid core silver wire is suitable for almost all wiring purposes, from the source to the speaker: internal wiring, interconnects, speaker wires, everything except we do not recommend it for mains power. This wire is specially made to Audio Consulting's specifications, unlike many other cheaper wires, it is not industrial nor jewellery wire, neither of which may sound very good and can give a harsh sound. If you have tried silver wire from elsewhere before and weren't happy with the sound, it is likely it was for a completely different purpose and not audio.
Audio Consulting 0.5mm Silver Cryogenic Wire with Cotton Sleeving example, heat-shrink not included.
It even works with digital interconnects, although it is preferable to use the 0.15 mm silver wire in this application.
Since the silver wire is insulated with a polyesterimide coating and cotton, this will have to be removed before any soldering can take place. It can easily be done by scraping with a sharp knife, taking care not to make any kinks in the wire or by burning off with a flame. The cotton can usually just be pulled back a little. A small piece of heatshrink (not supplied) can be put on if desired.
