Fine-tuning your system's performance
"If you 'Experience' what a tunable cable can do in a system, there just might be no turning back". Alan Sircom, Editor, HiFi+, July 2019.
To help you get the best out of your system we suggest you try three different tuning references with our interconnect and speaker cables, which you can then modify at home according to personal taste and system requirements.
Straight out of the box- No tuning just take it out and listen
Studio- provides a more analytical focus by tuning specific loops along the cable.
Stage- presents a more immersive feel with larger images by tuning a different set of loops along the cable.
These references can be tuned at home by inserting spacers in the cable's loops as shown below:
Spacers are inserted at specific loops along the cable with loop number one counted as the first wires from the plug at the source end of the cable:
We can carry out this tuning in our workshop before sending them to you. This we call 'Ultra-Tuning' and they will be sent to you with our logo in red for 'Studio' and gold for 'Stage' as shown in the table above. If you want to make changes to your cable's tuning at a later date these can be removed.
Experience880 interconnect Ultra-Tuned for a 'Stage' presentation
See separate details for tuning our speaker cables.
It is possible to fine-tune any of the positions outlined above by moving spacers in and out of the cable's loops. For example with our 1m Experience680/880 cable, removing the spacer at loop 14 reduces a little of the cable's air and space, which some may prefer.
Alan Sircom Editor of HiFi+ spent some time with our Experince880 interconnect and has some interesting things to say about its tuning capabilities. Read his review here.
