We are continuing the story of MICRO AIR Technology with the new REFERENCE LS-404 MICRO AIR speaker cable: As with the already legendary AIR Helix cables, air is a central component of the insulation concept in the new REFERENCE MICRO AIR technology. However, due to the low loudspeaker impedances low line resistances and low inductance are also very important for loudspeaker cables.
LS-404 Micro AIR
For this reason, a total of 8 concentric copper conductors are used in the REFERENCE LS-404 MICRO AIR in addition to the air dielectric. Thanks to this multicore architecture, the magnetic fields of the positive and negative conductors overlap and neutralise each other. This reduces the inductance of the cable considerably, thereby guaranteeing unadulterated transmission of the audio signal over a broad frequency range.
The LS-404 follows this approach and has a well-balanced sound character with precise timing with a well-controlled foundation. This cable is therefore primarily designed for fully-sized floor-standing loudspeakers. Of course, sound always is evaluated subjectively and ultimately depends on the overall constellation of the hi-fi system. In the end the decisive factor is your very personal auditory impression.
