vocalis IC balanced
Balanced interconnect cable
Advanced High End: VOVOX® vocalis IC balanced offers musical enjoyment on top level. The common-mode suppression guarantees transmission reliability as it is needed in the professional audio industry. The special helical design with three identical solid-core conductors assures outstanding sound quality.
- Solid-core conductors of 99.95% pure OFC-copper
- Optimized cable design to minimize surface boundary
- cable coating with natural fibers
- balanced, non-shielded cable construction
Connectors for VOVOX® vocalis IC balancedFor balanced cables, we use XLR connectors from Amphenol. The reduced mass of the gold plated contacts complies perfectly with our own design criteria.
Made in SwitzerlandVOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, are lead-free.
Minimized Boundary Surfaces
Cables have many surfaces, or more precisely expressed, boundary surfaces, like the grain boundaries in copper, or the boundary between the conductor surface and the insulation. Each boundary is a source of imperfection. VOVOX® sound conductors are made of single solid core conductors. Using this construction, the total boundary surface is reduced by up to 90% compared to stranded wires. Since VOVOX® textura IC direct has no shielding, the surface of the conductor is once more drastically reduced compared to a conventional, coaxial cable.
Cable coating with natural fibers
The contact surface between the conductor and the dielectric medium must accommodate complex interactions. Thanks to the tried-and-tested solid-core concept, these effects can be efficiently reduced. VOVOX® textura fortis, textura and vocalis are further improved by a fine meshwork of natural fibers that form a protective wrapping around the conductor. Triboelectrical phenomena are no longer possible. The difference is audible: tranquillity instead of disturbance, an incredibly tidy stage, perfect transparency.
Current induces electromagnetic fields encircling every conductor. If the distance between two conductors is too small, interactions and interferences are created. The result is an audible loss of sound quality. As a consequence, the conductors are arranged at well-defined, relatively large distances.
Care for your cables: listen to music extensively
At the first-time operation VOVOX® vocalis sound conductors require a bit of time to fully unfold their potential. Connect your cables with your audio system and use them as always. After about 20 hours of playing music, the sound conductors will have reached their optimal condition and are “runned-in“ permanently.
