CRESENDO II 2 x 3 meter
Crescendo II Straight Wire has introduced a significantly improved version of their highly acclaimed “Crescendo” Speaker Cable. It offers both technical advances starting with the inner core composed of seven equal diameter TPR hollow tubes vs. one large tube. This allows for greater flexibility and retention of roundness. The tubes are dual wrapped to maintain a uniform foundation for the many (12) large conductive groups and fillers. Dual insulation thicknesses (“soft” Foam Teflon and “hard” Foam Polypropylene) were modified to account for the characteristics of the new “inner core”. Conductor group resistance remained the same while compression was modified.
Crescendo speaker cable was the first Compressed Conductor Technology (CCT) design produced by Straight Wire. This design combines the best attributes of solid-core and stranded conductor technology. Extreme care was given to the degree of conductor compression and pressure of the Foam Polypropylene insulation.
Cosmetically, Crescendo II features a predominately black anti-static fiber with silver highlights under a clear jacket. This change was made in response to requests from many consumers who felt the equal silver/black snake-skin look was too aggressive and stood out in many décor environments due to the large diameter (over 1”) of Crescendo speaker cable.
Crescendo II provides mechanical and electrical advancements beyond original Crescendo speaker cable. Lifelike preservation of low level details coupled with unmatched dynamics and detail are easy to discern with this cable. It synergizes reference caliber components to provide captivating performances.
