Supra News May-June 2017 ► Supra LoRad MD01-16-EU/DC-Blocker

 

Supra LoRad DC-Blocker - Removes up to 3.6 VDC from the mains power AC

Now, Supra Cables has taken yet another step to minimize the impact from malicious elements like DC (Direct Current) superimposed on the mains AC (Alternating Current) in most modern households and industries!

DC voltage derives from a number of electrical appliances and will cause an offset on to you alternating mains power. This offset is the result of electrical devices that do not equally load the AC positive and negative phase. In the ideal mains power supply there should be no DC-offset at all. Refer to below.

Fig.1) DC-offset on AC mains power (disproportionate illustrative figure)

 

This DC offset limits the power supply efficiency in most multimedia and hifi equipment and causes transformers to saturate (the iron core). It increases iron core heat build-up and may even cause transformers to sound with a humming noise. Finally it may prolong life of the equipment by means of lowering the heat dissapation inside the device. The sonic impact is in most cases quite dramatic and again it will scale off audible sounds that do not come from the recording. You will listen to music, movies but not to your mains power irragularities.

Again Supra Cables is leading the way by offering a very efficient DC-blocker stopping DC up to 3.6 Volt making it future proof also for next generations of electrical consumers giving DC-offset. It is very easy to add-on to your existing power feed. It does not require protective ground to operate, but we strongly recommend it for a number of other reasons. Your equipment will sound much better and all other Supra mains power devices in the LoRad product range will work ideally.

Again Supra Cables have launched a product that in comparison costs a fraction. We do not spend on bling, just bang for the buck. Our No-Nonsense strategy means that almost all hifi enthusiasts will afford a Supra Cable Product, making exactly the same benign impact.

It is rated 16 Ampere and consequently allows for 3,680 Watt of power. The connection cord is optional and we recommend our Supra Lorad Mains Cord rated for 16 Ampere for optimal operation. Note that the DC-blocker input connector is rated 16 Ampere.

N.B. The filter will not dampen any dynamics. When the sound is much cleaner and tighter after the filter is connected, sometimes listeners perceive the dynamics to be reduced. When there is a difference in music and sound reproduction that will remove parts not really belonging to the source, this is a quite common reaction. On the contrary, bringing down the noice from the equipment will undoubtedly increase dynamics and often substantially reduce the duration of e.g. a bass pulse. Now it will most likely be possible to hear every tone in the bass range, also from each tuned drum skin.

Important! When connecting and disconnecting the Supra DC-filter, follow this procedure. Pull the mains cord connector from the wall socket. Wait until all power LEDs have gone out from the stand-by position. Now you can connect the existing mains power cord to the filter, connect the optional mains power cord to the filter and finally connect it to the wall socket. When disconnecting, always start with wall socket and wait until all connected devices LEDs go out. By doing this you make sure that no electrical charge remains in any of the devices or in the DC-blocker.

Supra News running 2017 ► Supra Velcro bindings of mounted cables

From now on and as a running change throughout 2017, the plastic cable ties will be replaced with textile ties with Velcro fasteners. It is thanks to our commited customers who have mentioned to us that during the period between factory mounting and unboxing by the customer, the regular plastic tie may sometimes make a tiny impression in the cable surface.

We have changed this to a textile tie with a Velcro fastener. For customers with cables purchased prior to this change, there will be no actions. The possible tiny mark does not affect performance in any way.

Supra News September 2016 ► Supra XL Annorum

Supra XL Annorum is a speaker cable we are proud to announce as one of our 40TH Anniversary offer. The name derives from playing with latin numbers and language where XL means -10+50=40 and Annorum is a bent form of Anno, latin for year, hence 40 Years. We take great pleasure in the fact that this cable is developed together with a reknowned Swedish speaker designer famous for e.g. QLN speakers among others. The intention was a conductor lead for the internal wiring of drivers and cross-over filter. During the progress we acknowledged such good performance that the idea of having the conductors forming a complete speaker cable came to life.

The design is a 4 x 1.6 mm2 square shaped lead configuration, where each lead comprises a plastic core around which 12 strands 5N oxygen-free copper are spun in a tight pitch. This minimizes skin-effect and inductance efficiently and by choosing the sonically benign PP as di-electric (insulation) the sonical stability by preventing corrosion and material fatigue, will remain at highest possible level year after year.

The specification and performance fits right in between our Supra Quadrax and Sword edition.

It is available mounted in a Star Quad, single-wire fullrange configuration (2 ►2), single bi-wire (2 ►4), dual bi-wire/bi-amp (4 ►4) and B75 bobbin.

 

Features and benefits

  • Star Quad configuration for inductance cancellation and noise immunity
  • CombiCon contacts features maximum customer convenience. Forks included.
  • 5N oxygen-free copper strands spun on core to minimize skin-effect
  • PP dielectric for maximum signal integrity and chemical stability
  • Developed in co-operation with renowned Swedish speaker designer as internal wiring
  • Will be incorporated in his newest speaker project’s internal wiring
  • Made in Sweden!

Supra News May 2016 ▶ Supra Rondo CombiCon 4 x 2,5 mm2 - Fullrange Star Quad and Single Bi-Wire

Supra Rondo CombiCon 4 x 2,5 mm2 - Fullrange and Single Bi-Wire

Now we launch the Supra Rondo 4 x 2,5 mm as pre-terminated with our finest speaker connectors Supra CombiCon in standard lengths. Included are both BFA/bananas and forks simply interchangeable since we use threaded connectors and high pressure air tight crimped contact bodies with threads. Just a small spanner will do the trick.

Supra Rondo - A versatile, electrically sound speaker cable

The Supra Rondo cable allows for a number of possible connections, where the full range Quad Star, is a nearly ideal laid out suppressing the inductance to low levels. Thanks to its four leads it is possible also to connect as bi-wired or bi-amplified. Tests have shown that full range Star Quad, supplemented with a good jumper replacing the often really poor leads konnecting high and low range connectors on the speakers give the best conditions for a better transition of music. Further to the Star Quad lead configuration, the short pitch twinning of the leads, contributes to even lower inductance and lowered tendency to pick-up RFI from the surroundings. Yes, RFI is highly malignant also in the speaker circuit. Any means to lower RFI in your hifi or multimedia equipment will undoubtedly pay off with lower noise floor and a much crisper and sharper picture as well as a sound full of micro dynamics standing out from a pitch black background, with a completely new level of bass attack and dynamic compared to a standard cable. Supra Rondo is available on bobbin, blisterpacks and pre-terminated with Supra CombiCon contacts. Let the show begin!

Supra News February 2014 ▶ LoRad mkII

Supra LoRad mkII 
Available in Ice Blue 3 x 1,5 mm2 and 3 x 2,5 mm2

LoRad is a wordplay of low radiation and aims to minimize both electrical and magnetic fields (noise) radiating from or into the conductors. LoRad protects from e.g. wireless and mobile phones, radio broadcasts, wifi, blu tooth, among others. LoRad mkII is an evolution of the concept with improved shielding properties, flexibility, bend-resistance and strength.

Two techniques are being used. First the shield minimizing the alternating electrical fields from the cable. It also minimizes the RF pick-up (radio frequency). The magnetic fields both from and to, are cancelled by twisting the conductors in a short pitch, hence reducing the inductance

The benefits are pronounced transients and because musik is nothing but an almost infinite number of sinus waves, it is crucial to isolate the music transients from the malignant in the power input. The result will be music free from components arising from other sources than the played source. By lowering the noise floor, lots of un-heard micro-dynamics will appear, some of them carrier of 3D soundstage. Use the Supra LoRad cables to connect all equipment to the power source incorporating the filtered LoRad mains distribution list and you will be stunned by all the new details that now emerges from your album collection.

The differences between LoRad mkII and the original cable,  is that we now base it on the unique Supra Nylon Screen concept. The result is futher improved shielding properties, bending strength, environmental immunity, higher tensile strength and less microphonic effect. The Nylon screen is connected to earth with a drain-wire. We have tested and evaluated all known types of shieldings for making such a good cable as possible. SUPRA’s semi-conductive Nylon screen was the only one that passed the safety requirements and, moreover, its shielding properties was best in test. LoRad MkII is tested and certified by Intertek Sweden, meeting the European safety regulation HD21.5 S3.

The cable must be connected to a wall socket with ground terminal to achieve LoRad effect.

 


 

SUPRA News October 2013 ▶ Ply

SUPRA Ply 3.4 Wide - Ultra Low Inductance

Available in Ice Blue color, 2 x 3.4 mm2

This cable is a true evolution of the Ply concept. The tin plated multi-strand braid is rolled flat under high pressure in two steps, same process as for the Flat 1.6. The idea behind a larger conductor surface facing each other with a short distance between, is lowering inductance at the expense of the much more benign capacitance. The advantage is an even faster transient response, hence the transpareny and explosive dynamics. External size of Ply 3.4 Wide is 9.6 x 5.3 mm, while standard Ply 3.4 is 7.2 x 7.2 mm 

Supra Ply 3.4 Wide features and benefits

  • Ultra low inductance - Good dynamics, crystal clear highs and sound stage presence.
  • Easy to strip - No special tools needed
  • Easy to connect - Connectors not necessary
  • Tin plated - Anti-corrosive among other benefits
  • Made in Lungskile, Sweden!
