Alpha speaker cables use 7-gauge VTX™ conductors and ΞTRON® technology for reference level performance second only to the Sigma speaker cable. The terminals are sonic-welded ensuring minimum contact junction resistance. KPIP™ eliminates burn-in issues.
ΞTRON® is a technology developed by Shunyata Research that prevents dielectric absorption and re-radiation in signal transmission. It requires a special type of conductor that has two signal paths and an electric field compensation circuit that creates a cancellation signal that prevents the insulation from developing a charge. ΞTRON® cables preserve the integrity of the source signal even when using very long runs of cable.
