Inakustik Reference LS-804 Air Spade (Single Wire) Speaker Cable (3meter)
Our unique AIR-technology impressively demonstrates what high-end cables can achieve in terms of sound. We are now expanding our Reference Selection Series with another top-class loudspeaker cable. For the entry into this class, the sophisticated Air technology is now available for the first time in a flat “ribbon” construction. The Air-Ribbon technology has made it possible to achieve an exquisite sound very efficiently by changing the cable architecture. In the new Reference LS-804 AIR speaker cable, four wires run flat and not helically next to each other, as in the Air Helix cables LS-1204, 2404 and 4004 AIR. In this way, the electrical parameters capacitance and inductance are yet again finely tuned to each other. The division into several smaller, separate conductors also reduces the skin effect. In conjunction with Air technology, i.e. the “omission” of insulation material, which would “absorb” part of the energy like a sponge, even the Reference LS-804 AIR is capable of following very fast impulses. The sophisticated details of the Air technology counteract unwanted cable effects and make it an extraordinary loudspeaker cable. Especially with less monumental amplifiers, the LS-804 AIR harmonizes perfectly and provides relaxed music enjoyment. Like all loudspeaker and audio cables of the Reference series, the Reference LS-804 AIR is completely manufactured in Germany.
我们独特的AIR技术令人印象深刻，展示了高端电缆在声音方面可以实现的目标。现在，我们正在使用另一种顶级扬声器电缆扩展“参考选择系列”。对于进入这一类的人来说，现在已经首次以扁平的“色带”结构首次使用了先进的空气技术。 Air-Ribbon技术通过更改电缆结构，可以非常有效地获得精美的声音。在新的Reference LS-804 AIR扬声器电缆中，四根电线扁平地延伸，并且彼此之间不螺旋成螺旋状，就像AIR Helix电缆LS-1204、2404和4004 AIR一样。以此方式，电参数电容和电感再次彼此精细地调节。分成几个较小的独立导体也可以减少集肤效应。结合空气技术，即“省略”绝缘材料，它将像海绵一样“吸收”部分能量，即使是参考LS-804 AIR也能够跟随非常快速的脉冲。 Air技术的精致细节可以抵消不必要的电缆效果，使其成为非凡的扬声器电缆。尤其是使用较少的纪念性放大器时，LS-804 AIR可以完美地协调并提供轻松的音乐享受。与参考系列的所有扬声器和音频电缆一样，参考LS-804 AIR在德国完全制造。

AIR RIBBON TECHNOLOGY
With the so-called Air-Ribbon cable, four wires run flat and not helically next to each other, as in the Air-Helix cables LS-1204, 2404 and 4004 AIR. The wires of the LS-804 AIR are also held in position by specially developed clips and cross-connected at both ends of the speaker cable. In this way, the electrical parameters capacitance and inductance are yet again finely tuned to each other. The division into several smaller, separate conductors also reduces the skin effect. In this way, the entire conductor surface area remains usable even at high transmission frequencies. In combination with the Air technology, i.e. the “omission” of insulation material, which would “absorb” part of the energy like a sponge, even the Reference LS-804 AIR is able to follow very fast pulses. The sophisticated details of the Air technology counteract unwanted cable effects and make it an exceptional loudspeaker cable. Especially with less monumental amplifiers, the LS-804 AIR harmonizes perfectly and provides relaxed music enjoyment.
使用所谓的Air-Ribbon电缆，四根电线扁平地延伸，而不是螺旋状地彼此相邻，就像AIR-Helix电缆LS-1204、2404和4004 AIR一样。 LS-804 AIR的电线也通过专门开发的线夹固定在适当的位置，并交叉连接在扬声器电缆的两端。以此方式，电参数电容和电感再次彼此精细地调节。分成几个较小的独立导体也可以减少集肤效应。这样，即使在高传输频率下，整个导体表面积仍然可用。结合Air技术（即“省略”绝缘材料），它将像海绵一样“吸收”部分能量，即使是参考LS-804 AIR也能够跟随非常快的脉冲。 Air技术的复杂细节可以抵消不必要的电缆效果，使其成为出色的扬声器电缆。尤其是使用较少的纪念性放大器时，LS-804 AIR可以完美地协调并提供轻松的音乐享受。
ELECTROSTATICS AND CAPACITY
Everyone knows this effect when you take off a sweater with a high synthetic content and it crackles and sparks. The reason for this is that the integrated plastic material stores electrical energy, which is then discharged again. The same happens in the dielectric, the insulation material of a cable. It “absorbs” electrical energy like a sponge and then releases it again later. With an audio cable, however, these are parts of the audio signal. A dimension for this is the cable capacity, i.e. the unwanted storage capacity of the cable. While capacitors are supposed to store energy and have a correspondingly high capacity, the capacity of the cable should be as low as possible. It significantly influences the transmission characteristics through losses and also leads to interactions with the connected electronics. The ideal solution is therefore an air insulation such as the one implemented with the Air-Technology, as this separates the “capacitor plates” of the cable and thus reduces the capacitance.
CROSS LINK SUPER SPEED WAVEGUIDE
The conductor material also plays an important role. Like the Air Helix models, the Reference LS-804 AIR consists of high-purity copper wires braided onto a PE core. A wafer-thin varnish layer on the wires prevents eddy currents within this conductor and additionally protects the copper from oxidation. Another sound-relevant advantage is the bifilar structure of the conductors, which is also realized in air-ribbon technology. It ensures that the magnetic fields generated by the current are partially compensated. This proven design ensures that the conductor behaves neutrally over a particularly wide frequency spectrum.
导体材料也起重要作用。 像Air Helix型号一样，参考LS-804 AIR由编织到PE芯上的高纯度铜线组成。 导线上的薄晶圆清漆层可防止该导体内的涡流，并另外保护铜免受氧化。 另一个与声音有关的优点是导体的双线结构，这也是在空气带技术中实现的。 这样可以确保电流产生的磁场得到部分补偿。 这种经过验证的设计可确保导体在特别宽的频谱范围内保持中立状态。
HANDMADE IN GERMANY
Like all loudspeaker and audio cables of the reference series, the Reference LS-804 AIR is completely handmade in Germany. The clips are assembled and the conductors are threaded by hand with great care in the in-house factory. The resulting AIR-Ribbon-Structure is then also manually fitted with the PE network jacket before the high-quality connectors are fitted and the cable is checked for proper function.
像参考系列的所有扬声器和音频电缆一样，参考LS-804 AIR在德国完全是手工制作的。 在内部工厂中，要小心地装配好夹子，并用手将导体拧紧。 然后，在安装高质量的连接器并检查电缆是否正常工作之前，还将所得的AIR-Ribbon-Structure结构与PE网络护套一起手动安装。
