Cable from the Baden Straubenhardt wants to consolidate its reputation as a good manufacturer now summer putting up the new fine-line Excelsior Classique. Not saved you on the plugs and stocked the SPK 3 with expensive pure silver WBT banana.

But even with the copper adheres to summer cable very pure, imported from Chile material and creates value not only on oxygen poverty, but also that it has only minimal debris.

The two inner conductors consist of 225 individual wires, which have diameter 0.15 mm, resulting in close to the standard cross section of 4 mm2. The conductor insulation is soft PVC. But here looked the Badener not only on being soft, but also that it contains no chalk, to achieve better properties.

The conductors are twisted with two PVC tubes, so that the surrounding plastic tubing can be round. A nice braid, which is a significant painting the cable concludes. Proud summer is cable but, that not only the Assembly in Straubenhardt is done, but the entire production.

In the listening room the Excelsior Classique SPK 3 distanced his smaller brother Quadra blue (10/08) first significantly, by homogeneous worked and gave richer timbres. Also it wove in the high frequency fine, which it drew even with the Greylitz MK II which revealed some more emphases in voices, but not launched the Contoured bass of the Excelsiors.
