The Shadow series cables were designed with flexibility and usability in mind. In some applications the micro-Silicates series is simply too big and heavy. That why we developed a new technology call MTA; Multi tunneling Architecture . This system allows power to travel inside the cable via multiple wires. Each wire carries a portion of the current. At the end of the cable, wires are recombined and distribute the power to the component.
DR Acoustics Shadow Series with MTA have a unique architecture using up to 12 conductors in one cable and benefit from a revolutionary shielding system call MSDS (Multiple Shields Dampening System ). This exclusive shielding system meets every requirement DR Acoustics had set in the design of a new line of products; Vibration noise Control and low caliber cable. In fact the Shadow power line cables have a concatenated AWG 8 for the Red Fire. In the Shadow series, Micro-silicate is replaced by the MSDS Technology. To implement Vibration control, the technology uses an ensemble of tinned cooper braided shielding to dampen the system. This architecture of 3 shields provides a blacker than black noise floor, a superb soundstage and of course an immense immunity to RF/EMI.
This unique Multi tunneling transport, with 12 paths for the current, creates an amazing stability because each wire carries a small portion of the energy reducing signal lost in heat. The MTA system offers superior quality and provides greater dynamics, resolution and detailed bass for all high-end audio installations. Built with exclusive methods, quality materials and unmatched expertise, DR Acoustics cables offer enhanced image and make up the perfect platform for your audio or video system.
The Shadow Series core is composed of Multiple wires made of 99.99% pure copper. The cable can also be equipped with an optional 20-A connector.
The conductors are covered by a high-quality nylon jacket, forming a cable 20 mm in diameter. It is available in a standard length of 1.8 m. Custom lengths are also available. These cables are designed to be extremely flexible.
The American Wire Gauge (AWG) is a standardized scale for wire conductors. Most audiophile power cables use 10-gauge conductors. For every two-unit AWG decrease, the cable doubles in size. DR Acoustics Shadow series are the equivalent of 8 AWG . Almost twice as big as a standard 10-gauge cables (8 mm2 vs 5 mm2). This MTT cable allows for a significant reduction in electron collisions. These collisions or frictions cause a temperature increase in cables. The MTT cables create a sort of electron “multi-route “highway” that enables greater performance without heat generation .
DR Acoustics’ Shadow MTA and MSDS transmission techniques allows for an unmatched level of performance and a significant reduction in vibrations. The MSDS is composed of a combination of Braided shields used as a mechanical uncoupler in order to reduce electromechanical and electric noise generated by the passage of alternating current through the cable.
DR Acoustics cables have been developed to offer superior sound quality. They are the perfect complement to high performance audio systems. These cables enable you to achieve optimal performance of your audio system.
