We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – Tributaries offers the highest quality cables around. Whether you’re a true audiophile or a movie nut, Tributaries Cables help bring the best performance of all of your audio-visual gear. Tributaries has just announced its newest line of high performance speaker cables. Introducing the new Series 4 premium speaker interconnect cables; read on to learn about each addition to the line directly from the source.
4BW Star-Quad Bi-Wire Speaker Cable
Designed for use with high performance bi-wire speaker systems, Tributaries Series 4 Bi-wire cable, model 4BW is made with the Star-Quad SP4BW. It is designed to delight the most discerning audiophile. What is Star-Quad geometry? Simply put, Star-Quad geometry consists of four conductors wound together in a “positive, negative, positive, negative” configuration. The result is the cancellation of opposing electromagnetic fields generated by each conductor pair. This design improves the system’s performance by preventing EMI noise from entering and distorting the signal. For improved sound clarity and sound stage the SP4BW is also made with propriety cable geometry designed to reduce distortion. Each conductor is constructed with 6 bundles of stranded wire wound around a larger solid center conductor that is insulated with a precision formulated PE dielectric. This design ensures low- loss, superior imaging and maximum definition. In addition, the SP4BW is a hybrid Bi-Wire made with two 14AWG conductors which are designed for connection to the low frequency loudspeaker driver terminals while two 16AWG conductors are designed for connection to the high frequency terminals. At the amplifier end two 12AWG conductors are achieved by combining one 14AWG and one 16AWG conductor for superior power handling capabilities. The 4BW is available terminated using your choice of BP101 banana plugs and/or SL8 spade lugs.
4SP Star-Quad 2 Channel Speaker Cables
The 4SP 2 channel speaker cable is made with the 4 conductor Star-Quad SP4BW. By combining the 14AWG and 16AWG conductors this cable achieves a 12AWG two channel speaker cable resulting in higher current capability and an increase in low frequency performance. The 4SP is available terminated using the same choice of BP101 or SL8 connectors. The Star-Quad configuration has been designed to reduce noise from EMI interference and improve the cable’s electrical performance while decreasing distortion. With a lower noise floor – you can really hear details in the sound that were previously muted.
4SP14 Standard 2 Channel Speaker Cables
Last but not least, 4SP14 cables were designed for those systems that require a high-performance 14AWG speaker cable. Like the rest of the Series 4 cables, 4SP14’s 2 different gauges within each jacket will, when compared to single gauge speaker wire, improve bass, mid and high frequency response. Designed in a low profile black UL® CL2 rated jacket this cable is ideal for in-wall speakers where performance above standard CI 14/2 is needed to achieve the best possible audio experience for the installation. This siamese speaker cable is also available terminated with BP101 banana plugs and SL8 spade lugs.
This new line of Tributaries Series 4 cables are available now in 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12-foot lengths. If you’d like to purchase any of these new or preexisting Tributaries cables, get in touch with your favorite Century Stereo consultant and they’ll gladly help you order them.
