Tributaries SP5F Silver OFHCC Speaker Wire Speaker Cables

SP5F Silver OFHCC Speaker Wire

Silver plating over 14 AWG OFHC copper strands assembled in an unusual flat braided configuration makes the TRIBUTARIES SP5F Ribbon Wire excellent for any loudspeaker/amplifier/room combination. Any oxidation on the outer layer of silver seals the internal conductors from oxidation. Silver plating lowers electrical resistance to allow more current to be conducted than copper alone which improves power handling over normal OFHC copper wire of the same gauge.

Strength:

Detail, speed and transparency

Weakness:

Not the most forgiving cable, could be smoother.

I was looking for an affordable cable for both my main
system and a dedicated HT system, so I auditioned both the
copper-silver hybrid as well as the silver Tributaries.
The difference of $ 4/ft to $ 5.5/ft was not a factor.
The copper-silver SP4 sounded very good, and it was only
by careful A-B'ing with the system set in mono, attaching
one to the left and one to the right channel that the differences jumped out. THe SP5 had better bass transmission and slightly more upper level information.
The SP4, which is very close, actually sounds warmer and
smoother. I picked the SP5 due to the sense of aliveness
I heard on Tracy Chapmans classic first release.
As I was using a combination of Vandersteens driven by
NAD, the SP5 worked slightly better. And way better in the
home theatre. If your amp or speakers need taming, buy the
SP4's instead.
