Supra Ply 3.4
Supra Ply is a long life multi-award winner and one-of-a-kind quality cable from Supra Cables.
Supra Ply Concept - ’A Logical and scientific design’, not to mention ’it's hip to be square’
The square shaped design as a result of mangled braid cores, laid out closely to each other, reveals the potential of dynamics and transients of your Hi-Fi system. Further, it reduces interference and interaction distortion.
When mangling the braid to thin conductor layers, extruding a thin layer of insulation and then putting them together with the flat sides facing eachother, the capacitance will increase significantly. An in-depth analysis require some mathematics exercise, so we leave the physical theory here and simply state that two conductors with different polarity laid out with a large mangled side area facing each other, will feel their individual charge, thus acting as a capacitor. If we just stopped there, we would not gain anything, but the real finesse it that the capacitance will raise at the expense of inductance! And, the capacitance is sonically less significant in the speaker circuitry. Further Supra Ply offers the tin plated strands that reduce the disruptive electron jumps between lead strands resulting in a signal time shift, a very unwanted distortion when the original holographic 3D sound stage is desired.
Once again, Supra Cables design a "simple" yet ingenious cable that because of its physical properties counteracts malignant sonical behaviour, is cost efficient to produce, thus affordable to the customer and allowing for a better sonical experience. Still. Because this is a quite old design. What we have done recently, presented in a separate section, is an evolution of this concept with an even wider conductor, mangled in a twop-step process, facing each other resulting in a further elevated capacitance, hence even lower inductance (Supra Ply Wide).
Supra Ply is available in a number of configurations, conductor areas, w/o screen, on bobbin or pre-terminated lengths, all with the basic sonic concept and some extra features added. The shielded version, with the drain wire connected to the negativ lead is also a way to further increase capacitance, improve sonics, but also protect both adjacent equipment from harmful fields and radiations as well as the human aspect, e.g. EHS - electro hyper sensitivity.
