Challenger share's the same basic construction as Konstantin , but is dramatically improved in several specific area's.
Challenger is for the person who has truly great musical equipment. Contender for the best of the best Challenger hides nothing. If the rest of your equipment lives up to the standards you will get perfect placements in altitude, depth and width.
With the Challenger range everything is brought forward and presented in a terrifyingly realistic way.
Characteristics of Challenger Cable Design
1 Separate cable for positive and negative signals
2 Asymmetrical design
3 Positive and negative cables are spun clockwise and anticlockwise respectively.
4 Adapted lengths to minimise the antenna effect.
5 DIC Dedicated contacts so the area on the mass of the contact areas correspond to the cable area.
6 Wood in the contact framework. Non-magnetic and non-conductive.
7 Only pure copper and silver in the signal paths. No alloys
8 Drain wire instead of shielding in order to connect to a pure earth point (External Earth Drain System)
9 Cotton covering instead of synthetic materials
10 EEDS External Earth Drain System
This entails the shielding / drain wire not being connected to the device’s negative pole, but is connected to another external earth point. One of our ground boxes is suggested.
This way, we drain off the interference/noise that the shielding absorbs to the ground outside of the signal paths, instead of the usual mixing it together with the signal wire at the connection to the devices.
