Vertere Acoustics, London UK. Touraj Moghaddam founder and CEO of Vertere Acoustics confirmed that the new Redline series of cables had started shipping to retailers and distributors worldwide.
Vertere Cables unleash the best possible musical performance from a hi-fi system. They allow their owners to sit back, relax, and feel the impact of real musicians in the comfort of their homes. Key to performance is preserving all the dynamics, harmonic structure, and detail of the music, throughout the system.
All too often, it is the connecting cables that corrupt the delicate audio signal. Vertere has fundamentally addressed this issue with its unique conductor design and internal cable architecture.“Any cable can only degrade the signal. The best cable is the one that degrades the signal least.” – Touraj Moghaddam. Redline CablesRedline cable is double shielded with an outer screen braid and a conductive foil. This delivers an excellent screen and a mixed ground impedance for low noise.
Seven independent high-purity copper (not pre-used or reclaimed) conductors per channel of different thicknesses and plating surrounded by low-dialectic constant FEP are utilized per channel. This allows the flexibility of different configurations for different uses. The six (two thin and four thick) signal conductors are silver plated. The thicker dedicated ground conductor is tin-plated.
Redline analogue cable connectors are all bespoke and all contacts are gold plated with triple the standard gold plating thickness. Termination includes RCA, DIN, XLR, Tonearm DIN, Mains, Spades and 4mm plugs.
Redline stereo Analogue Interconnect Cable is internally configured in a different manner to the tonearm cable to suit both line level and pre-out signals. The Analogue cable is connected in a quasi-balanced configuration to suit the dynamic, complex and wideband audio signal conducted from source to amplifier or pre-amplifier to power amplifier with clarity and superb low-level detail.
The Tonearm cable is wired in a fully balanced manner to suit the low output of cartridges and their balanced design.XminiS Speaker Cable – also part of the Redline family – also utilises multiple conductors to provide enhanced signal transmission. With both signal conductor set being identical and shielded, it can be configured for ‘balanced’ or ‘single’ ended use depending on shield management and shield connection to bring optimum performance for both traditional and bridged amplifiers.
- Redline cables are priced at £595, €700, $795 for a 1m interconnect cable, or a 3m pair of loudspeaker cables.
- Longer lengths per 0.5m are priced at £130, €160, $195. Redline mains cables are £595, €720, $895.
Background to Vertere Pulse cables
Vertere Acoustics range of Pulse cables is subdivided into four series: HB, R, Redline and D‑Fi. HB for Hand Built represents the absolute top of the line and the inspiration for the lower series.
Reducing engineering to its fundamentals, to get you even closer to the original recording. When aiming to reproduce the complexities of music, it’s all too easy to introduce even greater complication in the engineering of audio equipment, putting in place one element to solve the problems of another until the whole design escalates into something fiendishly intricate – and expensive!
That’s not the Vertere way: coming at the whole problem with decades of audio and mechanical engineering experience, plus close collaboration with the recording and mastering industry, we step back, take a long hard look at the fundamentals, and look for simple, elegant solutions.
That may sound like a simple ‘less is more’ philosophy, but we prefer to look at it this way: the best audio equipment shouldn’t add anything to the original recording. Rather it should affect it as little as possible; bringing the listener ever closer to what the artist, producer and mastering engineer wanted you to hear.
