ArgentPur started as a minimalist assault on the requirements of audio signal transmission.
Pure silver (Ag) has a 106% conductivity compared to the maximum theoretical transmission of copper at a technically defined 100%. So even umpteen-nines Cu can't remotely approach pure silver. The market is flooded with silver plated copper conductors. To many, these have compromised qualities that limit top octave clarity, coherence, and may lead some to describe them as "bright," "etched," or having "glare". Pure silver has no such compromises, and indeed has NO SOUND of its own.
In order of preference, the available media for the Ag conductors to rest within are: a vacuum (rather impractical), air, and then the low dielectric effect insulative barriers when necessary. The best of these are arguably the fluorocarbons.
To minimize dielectric effect further, each individual Ag strand used in ArgentPur is manually threaded through its own fluorocarbon tube that is 5-10x larger so that contact between the Ag conductor strand and its protective carrier is dramatically reduced by this roomy air space. Capacitance and inductance are thus minimized, with the benefit of no "signal-hopping" destructive interference across the frequency spectra. (See Core Technologies below.)
Premium WBT0152Ag are used to terminate the Athene and Heracles RCA designs. A wonderful Ag/Teflon XLR is used for the balanced designs, with locking silver Neutriks available for pro use.
Speaker cables are terminated in very burly Ag-plated spades and Ag-plated banana plugs for complete continuity of Ag conductance.
NO lower-conductivity rhodium, gold, nickel, nor copper surfaces are in the signal paths! Only 105.9995% transmission pure Ag!
NO other hefty cheap "fillers" like PE or PVC are used to add unnecessary weight nor girth in marketing ruses to enhance gravitas. Pure Ag cascading through air-filled Teflon to Ag-tipped connectors!
NO performance claims are made differentiating among the AgPur Speaker Cable iterations, as load sensitivity and length requirements should guide Ag AWG mass selection among the four models. How refreshing!
NO CABLE! The sound and raison d'etre for ArgentPur!
"There is something extraordinary going on here and amazingly beautiful... Could it be magic?"
"I'd say it's the only silver (cable) that outranks the most expensive all-copper I have ever heard!"
"...sounding as good as anything on the market.... I still can't believe it is so.... Your pricing for the gauge that I have (AgPur12, $6k 2.5M) is quite amazing compared to other high end companies! It is perfect with a smooth ambient effect and much detail and huge soundstaging. Nothing ever SHOUTS AT YOU...they are that musical!!"
"To say that I am impressed is an understatement. The organic wholeness, the octave to octave balance, and the detailed yet extremely smooth top end was fantastic."
"...the RCA cables: So far, so great! Nice bass extension couples with a huge soundstage."
"Uncolored, unfiltered, highly revealing of source material and room treatments."
"...they're a phenomenal duo. Better than TQS (TelleriumQ Statement) by some distance...not a subtle thing... a massive difference."
"The Heracles (RCA) explodes out into the room and hangs in the air around you....(they) are in another league."
"...on the analogue (vinyl) they sounded like master tape."
"...easiest A/B test (with TQS) I've ever done. These are far and away transcendentally better than anything I've ever heard."
"These reset the yardstick, and do so with a knowing smirk and a wink...they're masterful."
"These are very very good. I'm going to wire my three rooms at Capfest with them."
"They made my (baby) Spendors (with big Hegel integrated) explosive! You can have your subwoofer back...."
Standard ArgentPur constructions for Speaker Cables are 2.5M length, terminated with premium bananas AND spades. Standard Interconnects are 1M length.
These standard constructions may be returned within a 30 day demo period for full refund less shipping costs.
All orders for other lengths or non-standard terminations (all bananas or all spades, or others' connectors, for example), are considered custom-made orders, so are not refundable.
Speaker Cables returned for exchanging terminations after delivery will incur a modest charge for new connectors and remanufacturing labor.
AgPur Flyovers are also 2.5M standard length, but terminated with all bananas. Standard constructions may be exchanged for full credit toward AgPur Speaker Cables within one year! Custom lengths and terminations are not returnable.
We reserve the right to make minor cosmetic and aesthetic changes on the fly without notice. However, any technological changes will always be announced. Enjoy the music!
