Ray and the engineers at Kimber Kable have been working feverishly for the last couple of years on a new range of cables. At long last the measuring and listening tests are complete and we’re delighted that they are launching them in their 40th anniversary year.
The new cables consist of an analogue interconnect and three new speaker cables. The new Carbon analogue interconnect sits close to Silver Streak and Hero-HB in terms of price but is a significant step-up in performance.
A major feature – and a completely new direction for Kimber – is the use of carbon in these cables. The conductors are pure, VariStrand copper over which a carbon-infused conductive polymer is pressure-applied.
The polymer fills the spaces in between the strands helping to maintain the geometry and means that the stranded conductors behave more like a solid core conductor (a benefit), while retaining its flexibility. The copper conductors and carbon polymer are then insulated in the conventional way with Kimber’s Fluorocarbon (Teflon) insulation.
The Carbon polymer reduces mechanically-induced noise and improves the performance of the outer Teflon insulating material.
A feature of Kimber’s Axios headphone cables has been the development of a braiding machine which is able to maintain the famous weave at the point at which the braid splits into two, and this design has been carried over to the new carbon cables.
Instead of simply twisting the wires together for the positive and negative halves of the speaker cables, the braid is maintained at the breakout. The interconnect consists of a single wire carrying both left and right channels which similarly branches out to both channels with no break at the junction and preservation of the braid.
To complement the high performance of the interconnect, Kimber chose WBT connectors for the single ended option and Switchcraft XLR's for the balanced version.
The WBT connectors are finished with the laser engraved, Carbon logo for a truly unique look. A choice of either copper or silver WBT-0114 phono connectors are available.
