Celebrating 20 Years of Innovation
Designer David Salz has long been known for creating inventive and effective solutions to common cable problems. The result is a line of unique cables that provide the absolute clearest path for music and video. With the introduction of Series 8, David has again broken new ground in advancing the dynamic performance of Wireworld cables and integrated these advances with a fresh new style.
Composilex® 3 Insulation Technology
The secret to a successful recipe is usually the quality of the ingredients. Wireworld’s proprietary formulation of composite dielectric materials is specifically designed to preserve the purity of the original signal. Refined for Series 8, these new materials push the boundaries of our expectations for fidelity by letting us hear, see and feel more than ever before.
Introduction to Wire World Digital Cables
It's not just 1's and 0's, it's the timing!
There is a fundamental difference between the transfer of computer data and digital audio signals. Computers are able to transfer digital data without loss, because the data moves in the robust form of blocks, which do not depend on specific timing between the sending and receiving devices. However, digital audio signals are continuous streams of data, which are quite fragile, since the digital processor must remain perfectly locked onto the timing of the signal to avoid data losses.
The Limitations of digital audio processors and cables create timing errors known as jitter, which remove portions of the audio signal and replace them with noise and distortion. Cables tend to round off the square waveforms of the signal, making them less clear to the processor, thus increasing jitter. This rounding effect varies greatly among cables and a truly superior digital audio cable can make great improvements in sound quality.
WireWorld digital audio cables utilize unique designs specifically developed to minimize jitter by providing sharper, cleaner leading edges on the digital waveform. At each price level, they provide the lowest jitter available, producing distinct improvements in clarity, image focus, smoothness and dynamic range.
Wire World at a glance
The world leader in cable technology for home theater and high-end audio systems
WireWorld audio, video and power cables utilize a series of patented and highly effective innovations to provide dramatic improvements in sound and image quality. Our unique scientific approach of comparing cables to a direct connection has resulted in products of superlative performance and value, which thrill consumers and critics around the World.
A generation has passed since audio enthusiasts first discovered that cables could change the sound of their stereo systems, but clear explanations of those changes and of why one cable may produce better sound quality than another are not easily found. The fact is that the best cable of all, would be no cable at all, a direct physical connection between components. Our unique approach of evaluating cables by comparing them to a direct connection has enabled us to develop cables that clearly preserve more of the beautiful harmonic textures and dynamic expression that make live music so enjoyable.
Likewise, our objective methodology and dedication to quality have also led to substantial advances in digital video cable and power cord technology.
WireWorld cable design methodology
• A clear objective: To create cables closest in performance to a direct connection
• Identify and analyze all forms of loss through bypass testing and measurement
• Create new cable designs that minimize all types of observable loss and distortion
• Execute those designs according to the pricing needs of consumers
"WireWorld is dedicated to creating cables that maximize the pleasure of your home entertainment experience." David Salz, WireWorld President and Designer
