Entreq Infinity Cables


Nature is the best constructor ever, but also in nature there are a endless evolution.

During 2017 we have developed and upgraded all our cables to Infinity line.


 

The Infinity lines improved connectors, the Infinity tubes, the high pressure technique used on EEDS together with our groundboxes gives you a flow and soundquality that we think is unique.


Our unique cables are the result of several years’ development and hard work. We have taken nothing for granted but have instead examined all the current  thinking and knowledge which is assumed about cable design and its role in signal transfer, then re-visited it over and over again with reference to not only the technical measurement but in what and how it imparts an actual sonic influence to each key stage. We have purely and honestly investigated and penetrated the operation and meaning of every square millimetre of a cable soundwise. Through this we have acquired knowledge that few, if any other manufacturer have, regarding signal transference. Not many manufactures of cables put any real effort in to the fact that when you connect a cable to your system, you in practice are not merely connect an antenna that pick's up a wide band of radio waves, that indeed influence the sound, but that its effect's a far more ranging. Even those that do work in this area generally don't really do anything positive with the problem; generally just covering it up or not suitably understanding it's entire influence and therefore not knowing what to do with the noise etc.

Connectors...and their influences.                 

We have been championing the importance of connectors since the very beginning of our companies inception. Until very recently solutions were not really being addressed by others, certainly not fully! For over a decade we have understood the potential issues on many levels involved in making connectors and connections. This resulted in our discovery of several revelations forcing us to come up with our own unusual and quite unique solutions. We have therefore designed and constructed our own contacts, connectors, grounding system ( EEDS) etc because in our opinion attention to detail in this area really does count. For us this has resulted in a number of patents and today we can offer cables that can be compared only with the best cables from the best manufacturers in the world. For you this means that you can experience real pleasure from your music at an acceptable price through high quality cables, where no stone in the design brief has been left un-turned.  We always work this way! 


Below we have listed 10 unique Characteristics of Entreq Cable Design
 

1 Separate cable for positive and negative signals 
This allow us to optimize positive and negative conductors for best performance.
Positive and negative conductors have different demands. Many means that they should have same construction for best phase stability, but the benefits with optimize them separately for their job are in our opinion far bigger.  


2 Asymmetrical design

With our construction we can choose different metals as well as the dielectric material for positive and negative conductors. The fact we can use different dielectric means that we can optimize the polarization effect, so it has so little impact on the signal as possible. Also, we can use different length on the conductors for positive and negative conductors and that allow us to minimize the impact on the signal from the magnetic fields.

3 Positive and negative cables are spun clockwise and anticlockwise respectively.
This together with different length and material on positive and negative conductors/cables give the magnetic fields around the positive and negative cable different shape. This way we reduce the cross talking betwen the cables and signal flow easier.
 

4 Adapted lengths to minimise the antenna effect.
All cables act as antennas. Some length act as “better” antennas then other lengths and pick up a lot of signals and radiation. In our opinion the optimal length for a cable is 4,40 m. We think that length is the worst antenna that pick up less radiation. However, that is not a practical solution to have all cables in that length and also there will be many other negative influences with long cables. Our cables are in step of 0,55 cm lengths, 1.1m, 1.65m, 2.2m and so on.  

5 DIC Dedicated integrated contacts.
We make sure that the area and the mass of the contacts area correspond to the cables area.
In our opinion it´s very important to keep the signal path as straight and clear as possible. We should avoid bottlenecks and big squares for the signal because it will cause time delays for the signal and the result will be muddy sound. We have also found that it´s give big benefits if we use silver for the positive signal and cupper for the negative. There are also big differences between solid pins or tubes in the connector. A tube gives better flow for the signal compared with a solid pin. 
Think of the cable as a Highway. If the access and slip roads are well constructed and in good condition the traffic will flow easy. If it´s the opposite, you will get traffic jam and accidents, no matter how good and well-constructed the rest of the road is.

6 Wood in the contact framework. Non-magnetic and non-conductive.
All metals are magnetic in one way or another. Even metals/plastic that we say are non- magnetic are
 “paramagnetic” and have influence on the signal. Wood have no impact on the signal and let the metal in the connectors signal path work the way we expect.

7 Only pure copper or/and silver in the signal paths. No alloys
 And no metal just for good looking!! You never see any metal on a Entreq cable if the metal not cary signal. Many other brands use big shiny metalparts on the cables for the good look. But this will be a part of the dielectric and affect the soundquality.

8 Drain wire instead of shielding in order to connect to a pure earth point (External Earth Drain System)
A common shield of aluminium will also be a part of the dielectric and give undesired results.
Instead we use Infinity treated drain wire of Cupper or Silver wich have less affect on the signal, but still protect against radiation.
9 EEDS External Earth Drain System
This entails the shielding / drain wire not being connected to the device’s negative pole that is the common way. That way you mix the signal and the pollution just before it enters the device. With EEDS you keep pollutions and signal separated all the way and connect drain wire with the pollutions to another external earth point. (One of our ground boxes is suggested. And here we recommend you to carefully choose Eartha cables and ground box for best result.) and let the signal go separated to the device. This way, we drain off the interference/noise that the shielding absorbs to the groundbox outside of the signal paths. A big improvment when we keep it separated instead of mix it together just before the process in the recieving device.

10 Cotton covering instead of synthetic materials
The sleeve automatically be a part of the dielectric. If using plastic sleeve, you add characteristic to the cables. Some manufacturers want this, but we prefer to add so little features as possible.

 

 

Eartha Infinity Cables

The way the cables used to drain away the noise / stay currents are designed has an signify effect on the result. A Eartha cable are not equal with a signal cable in any way. We believe this is due to there being such a high frequency and low voltage in the current with which we deal. This means that not many brands have the knowledge for making a proper groundcable.  When we develope the Apollo Networkcable Apollo RG 45 we more or less stumble in to one of the most breaktroughing developments so far regarding Earth cables and grounding. We test with expose the conductors for very high pressure. When this conductors was used for signal transmission it was not a big hit. But for grounding it´s one of the biggest improvment we ever came across.

Infinity Power Cables.
As we see it, the power cable is the most important cable in the jungle of cables. If it is not correct here, you can try to compensate for the error in the power cable further down in the chain, i.e., compensate for errors by making other errors.

There are many sceptical people who feel that since the power is conveyed for miles down ordinary wires that it is just silly to believe that the last few metres are significant. Add to it the fact that each device has a glass fuse in its IEC contact and it can seem even more logical that the power cable does not have an effect. And I must admit that I can understand that many are incredulous.  However, once you have test a good Power Cord, you realize how important they are. We woulld not say we have the answer why, but after more than twenty years of experience we have some ideas. We believe that besides the regular parameters such as inductance and capacitance, the power cable's ability to handle very high frequencies is crucial to the final result. There is quite a lot to substantiate our belief in this. One is that the connectors and the wires are of great importance to how a Power cable performs. If it was only a matter of 50Hz, the different alloys and materials in the contacts should not affect the sound. Furthermore, the relationship between the cable area performance suggests that it is a matter of high frequencies instead of 50Hz. And finally the huge impact the Infinity tubes give on a Power Cord.All this shows in one direction. We also place great importance on the connectors on our cables, and therefore we manufacture them ourselves for all other cables. The power cables are the exception as we use Furutech connectors. Naturally, all of our power cables are designed with separate cables for the phase and neutral and with a mixed earth wire with the suitable area. We also feel that the antenna effect is of very great significance, i.e., how many radio waves, magnetic fields etc. the cable receives and send into the device. In this case, material selection and length are decisive. It is quite simply a matter of designing the cable so that it is a really bad antenna. (Those who are interested can easily experiment using a radio/TV receiver and a copper wire and have a practical experience of the difference length plays in reception.



Infinity line Signal / Loudspeaker Cables, from entry level Discover to top of the line level Olympus

All the cables that are connected to a stereo set work as transmitting/receiving antennas.
We feel that the length of the cables (antenna effect), their ability to handle really high frequencies and that there is a straight signal path without bottlenecks are all far more important parameters than are inductance and capacitance.

Adapting the connectors according to the design of the cable is crucial to the result, in our opinion.
If one uses ready-made contacts, one must simply adapt the cable to the contacts.
That is why we always manufacture our own contacts with wooden frameworks. A material that is completely non-magnetic and non-conductive and which does not affect the signal at all, the way plastic or metal do.
For the contact surfaces themselves, we use pure silver/cooper, where silver is used for positive and copper for negative.
Furthermore, all of our signal/loudspeaker cables feature our EEDS (External Earth Drain System).

 



 


Duo negativa affirmant.

Two negatives multiply together to make a positive.

One might say "I am not without knowledge". It sounds contrived and forced.

Or quite simply "I know". It sounds simple and natural. 

It is the same thing with HiFi in general and cables in particular. If a cable is not neutral, but rather has tones in some register, for example a sharp treble, one can try to compensate with a cable later in the chain that roles off and is softer at the top. One simply can start to correct the mistake by making other mistakes and then the result will be as in the sentence above: contrived and forced. 

All our cables have a neutral resonance as no register stands out. In addition to good placements in depth and with, they offer a well-placed high sound image. This is no singer holding the guitar high over his head or a piano with sawn-off legs.


Please enjoy....

All of the connectors in the Infinity line are improved in several ways.
For example  the RCA now are totally made in wood, the cupper ring is new and the silver pin is better fixed. 
No matter if it´s a Nexgen female or a noname female they connect. They fit extremly well.
