Argento Audio Flow Cables
For the Argento Audio Flow Cables they use a large number of extremely thin conductors made of high purity annealed silver. To further optimize the performance from these conductors they are cryo treated and polished twice for the absolute best surface quality. Using many conductors increase the importance of the correct geometry and insulation.
The geometry used in the Flow Cables insures that all of the conductor are of exactly equal length. This guarantees that the conductors work as one cable instead a multitude of small cables of different lengths creating a smear in the signal.
Audio cables from other manufactures use either, air, plastic or cotton or a combination of these to insulate the conductors. All claiming that it provides the very lowest dielectric constant and therefore is the best suited for the task.
Review of the Flow Phono cable by Marshall Nack for Positive Feedback >>
At Argento Audio they have taken a different approach to choosing the right insulating material for our products. In their opinion the dielectric material not only has to insulate it also as to provide mechanical damping. Their answer to these requirements are VDMTM which is short for “Vibration Damping Material”.
This material reduces microphonics and completely removes the “traditional” hyper hifi sound that the usual dielectrics creates in audio cables. To ensure that the interface between the Argento Audio Flow Cables and the electronics is as close to perfection as possible we developed a range of new connectors for the Flow cables. The Argento Audio Flow Cables connectors are machined to the highest standards and the contacts in the connectors are machined from rods of solid high purity silver. The connectors are attached to the conductors by compression to provide a silver-to-silver interface rather than introducing a low conductivity material such as solder.
Because of the material choice and design the Argento Audio Flow Cables are extremely flexible making them easy to install.
