The Award winning Tarantula MK6 offers amazing levels of performance for the money. Constructed using 3 x 2.5 mm twisted high purity oxygen free copper conductors to low resistance and give greater current handing. The conductors are coated with an extremely high grade Polyolefin which has a much better dielectric constant than the regular PVC used in on most mains cables. An Ali/Mylar screen with drain wire and then a CCS conductive carbon screen is employed to shield the cable which is then finished in flexible PVC outer.
The radiated and transmitted RF and Em Interference channelled into the equipment by regular mains cables tends to manifest itself as distortion of image or picture on AV equipment or loss of focus on audio so it is essential as much is removed as possible and at the same time lower the resistance of the circuit to increase dynamics. What makes Tarantula FE (filter edition) different to a standard model is the inclusion of our highest grade passive filters which drastically reduce interference that screening alone cannot remove and also minimising the leaked interference from your component power supply. Tarantula FE is how we like to see Tarantula! The standard model is engineered to hit a price point and represents outrageous value for money but where a little more refinement is preferred the FE will deliver! It is designed to bring extended dynamics and vibrancy to all components as well as improved clarity to both sound and images.
Very few cables at this price point offer much improvement at all, never mind to the standard of our new Tarantula. It is designed to bring extended dynamics and vibrancy to all components by lowering the noise floor.
The new Tarantula represents the very best value for money for someone sceptical about mains cables and who just wants to sample a change for as little outlay as possible.
"The companyís MK6 version is a spectacular improvement. Plug it into hi-fi electronics and, compared with your standard kettle lead, the Tarantula helps your system produce a much cleaner, smoother sound.
The lack of noise allows more detail to seep through into the soundstage, with greater separation between instruments and vocals.
But the benefits arenít just hi-fi based: plug the cable into a TV, and images appear crisper, while thereís greater punch to the overall picture." BEST MAINS CABLE - WHAT HI-FI SOUND & VISION AWARDS 2009
