DHC Silver Flagella – Extreme Reference Speaker Cable
Available by custom commission only – DHC’s statement speaker cable. Made with sixteen strands of Elite19 OCC silver litz – four per polarity – offering the world’s largest fine-stranded OCC silver litz speaker cable, the only one in existence – for a composite conductor of 12.5 AWG per signal.
18.8awg (~19awg) pure OCC silver litz. The 14-bundle design of Complement4 expands to 30 bundles arranged into six subgroups; Elite19 contains more than double the amount of OCC silver as Complement4. The ultrapure single-crystal litz silver bundles are arrayed into a cylindrical-tube layout inside each Elite19 wire. This design greatly reduces skin effect as each strand alternates between the inside and the outside of the wire construct along the cable’s length, equalizing impedance throughout the wire. Each tiny strand of OCC silver is coated in an invisible, razor-thin enamel layer which prevents oxidation and cross-talk between strands, eliminating diodic junctions and their propensity for energy storage. This conductor goes above and beyond in terms of current carrying capability. Not just any OCC silver, we have combed the world for silver that sounds this way, casting many possible designs and materials aside. This metal is chosen for its unique combination of precision and forgiveness. We find it even less harsh-sounding than copper, even with troublesome recordings, due to its refinement. Those who hear our silver ask “How is this silver? It’s so smooth and easygoing…”
Center conductive/damping core. DHC helped introduce type 4 litz with our original Peptide V2 type 4 litz wires – an optimized version of the type 2 litz with a core of damping material at the center, keeping the litz strands out of the wire’s “dead spot” at its center, and aiding in litz’s prime goal of equally distributing each strand between the wire’s surface and its interior. With Elite19, we take the damping core feature to a higher level with our conductive core – a DHC first. The core is made of a resistive material which absorbs any internal static buildup.
Multicore type4/type6 layout. The more complex nature of Elite19’s colossal 18.8awg conductors requires a second level of six cores, made of pure cotton, to organize the bundles. This provides support and damping throughout the wire.
Flexible, clear PE insulation. This material offers the best combination of dielectric constant, damping, flexibility, and overall feel. See the litz masterpiece inside through the clear insulation.
Parallel construction. With four wires per signal, the design scales to the current carrying requirements of the world’s best speakers and amps. 24 cores, 840 strands of pure OCC silver litz.
Separated signal cables. Each signal is contained in its own four-wire, 12.5awg OCC silver litz cable. Simply connect each one individually between each amp binding post and each speaker binding post.
Furutech pure copper spades. Choose rhodium or gold plating. These are the only spades big enough to handle a cable like this.
