SW1X solid Copper & Silver Cables

SW1X Audio Design™ custom Hand-Made, High-End Performance Audio Cables

A must read preamble:

The Sound of Copper vs Silver conductors

While there is a tendency to prefer one or the other sound signature, we at SW1X Audio Design™ think that conductor material choice is not only a question of ultimate customer’s preferences but also a question of harmonic match with the rest of a system. We, therefore offer a variety of cables designs with a choice of either copper, silver or both type of conductors. We offer a bespoke cable manufacturing to suit your application designed specifically for ultimate musical performance.

In essence the range of SW1X cables is categorised in 3 lines, according to the conductor material type or a combination of thereof

AERO (silver), AQUA (silver and copper) and TERRA (copper) lines of Cables

All SW1X Audio Design cables employ only the finest silver & copper materials and are manufacture by hand with a highest degree of craftsmanship

  • SW1X cables may look ordinary but in terms of musical performance, they are not
  • All SW1X cables employ unique impedance & harmonic matching construction resulting from numerous experiments, exhaustive testing and critical evaluation
  • SW1X cables are characterised by the lowest capacitance and inductance attainable in practice
  • The improvement in sound quality relative to ordinary machine made, screened, copper conductor cables can be simply shocking
  • SW1X cable may appear expensive but the materials used and the performance is conclusive
  • Hand-made only, in England

The SW1X Audio Design™ Performance Level System for cables

The construction of cables is based on the same philosophical principles outlined here but differ in the amount of copper and/or silver and the number of conductors employed.

All cables feature air dielectric and the number represents the number of conductors with a variable & proprietary gauge of conductors found in a cable.

Everything else being equal, the performance of SW1X cable is highly correlated with the amount of silver and/or copper conductors employed in the cable.

More silver and/or copper conductor results in a more dynamic and “meatier” sound, where mid bass range improves further in its harmonics.
