SAMBA has been created by taking the basic design concept of TWIST and applying higher specification parts in a highly cost effective way.
• SAMBA uses silver plated copper conductors
• SAMBA has much larger conductors and hence much lower impedance than TWIST due to its 3 sq mm conductor cross section, over three times the cross section of TWIST.
• SAMBA has a much thicker insulation than TWIST, resulting in lower ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ because the magnetic field generated by current in the wires reduces as distance between the wires increases.
There are a number of benefits in using SAMBA rather than TWIST when the quality of hi-fi system justifies a higher grade cable.
• SAMBA delivers greater clarity to mid range and high frequency music due its outer plating of silver.
• SAMBA is ideally suitable for long cable runs, having much lower impedance, and hence less signal loss than other comparable quality cables at a similar price point.
• SAMBA gives a very tight bass and very stable stereo images due to its low impedance enabling the amplifier to have better control of movement of the loudspeaker bass drivers.
• SAMBA gives even clearer diction of the words sung by massed choirs due to its lower ‘Transient Phase Distortion’.
SAMBA retains features that have enabled TWIST to win awards for sound quality in leading Hi-Fi magazines.
• SAMBA cable is twisted along its length, thus preventing the cable acting as a “loop aerial” for airborne radio frequency interference which can cause audible distortion to the sound quality.
• The positive and negative cores are connected in opposite directions. Experience shows that when cables are connected this way (and both cables are connected in the same direction) the noise floor between the musical notes lowers. This gives ‘blacker’ silences in the interval between musical notes and enhances reproduction of the musical edges and natural decays in music.
• Silicone rubber insulation is used because its low dielectric loss ensures extremely low distortion due to dielectric absorption effects in which sound energy is absorbed in the insulation and released at a later interval of time to create highly audible time-smearing distortion.
