Neotech NES-3003 MKII: Multistrand Hybrid Speaker Cable

Neotech NES-3003 MKII: Multistrand Hybrid Speaker Cable

NES-3003 II is another specialty designed - 9AWG (6.0sqmm) Hybrid speaker cable with increased the dynamic range with transparent & accurate sound. Consisting of UP-OCC Copper conductor and UP-OCC Silver Plated Copper conductor plus Polyethylene insulation with CL3 flame retardant jacket.

This cable is made up of 4 conductors of UP-OCC stranded copper conductor wrapped in Polypropylene inner insulation which is then wrapped in UP-OCC Silver Plated Spiral Conductor after Inner Insulation. The 4 conductors are then encased in a CL3 rated PVC insulation and an Anti-Electrostatic PVC outer jacket.

Neotech has long been a leader in producing wire and cable using "single crystal" UP-OCC Copper, developed by Professor Ohno of the China Institute of Technology in Japan. UP-OCC copper is at least 99.99998% pure, and has an average crystal size of 125 meters. Compare this to the average crystal size of Oxygen Free Copper, which is .02 meters (3/4"). UP-OCC copper and silver are considered the ultimate in copper and silver conductor technology today.

Review by Astin Trew Ltd; "This loudspeaker cable is very open, has a natural uncoloured sound, fast and detailed without being aggressive.  The micro-detail and 3D 'sound-stage' is impressive - and a very low noise floor.  Bags of detail and musical colour across all frequencies without being clinical. Perfect!  We now use it as our highest reference loudspeaker cable whilst developing our amplifiers."

Speaker wiring: One length is a mono length to drive one speaker.
For single wiring connect the copper and silver plated copper conductors from the black and blue cores together and wire into a suitable connector for the negative, similarly connect all conductors from the red and white conductors for the positive.
For Bi-wiring connect the copper and silver plated copper conductors from the black core and wire into a suitable connector for the bass negative, then connect the copper and silver plated copper conductors from the blue core and wire into a suitable connector for the tweeter negative. Then the red core for the bass positive and the white core for the tweeter positive.

Outside Diameter: 20mm

Supplied in continuous lengths of 1m, to make 2m stereo speaker cables, 4m are required.
