alp.wE  series  audio  cables

 

alp.wE series cables utilize conductors manufactured by the re-established Western Electric to the exact same specifications as their original KS-13385 audio transmission wire from the 1950s.  both the original and modern versions are tin-plated, multi-strand copper conductors with a pvc dielectric and lacquered cotton braid sheath.

 

today, original manufacture Western Electric audio transmission wire enjoys an almost cult following.  it is renowned for its distinctive musical qualities offering a natural live-like level of resolution; exceptional dynamic response; an intense tone color; and a penetrating, rich and beautiful sound.  given that NOS is no longer obtainable, the initial goal in developing the alp.wE series was simply to offer cables to those seeking these tonal qualities.

 

the combination of original, 1950s specifications with the precision of modern manufacturing has, however, resulted in a conductor wire that is exceptional.  having the best characteristics of both worlds, it rewards listeners with authentic tonal qualities delivered with striking clarity.

 

note :   this wire is not in continuous production.  therefore, alp-tone is able offer the alp.wE series as supply permits.

 currently, there is supply for all alp-tone standard configurations.

 

 

 

alp.wE speaker cables

 

standard configurations :   2 x 16 awg   |   2 x 12 awg


standard termination options are bare-wire, 8mm spades or banana plugs.  spades and banana plugs are un-plated, pure copper milled from high-conductivity OFC.  terminal connection is mechanical which has lower resistance than a soldered connection.  soldered connections available upon request.

 

cable sheathing is an ultra high-quality, double-braided, multifilament nylon material which is flexible and resonance dampening.

 

lengths :  2.5 meters plus increments of 0.5 meters
