Shielding materials used are commonly tin, aluminum, copper, silver plated copper and nickel-plated copper. In our tests, as long as metal is used, rather than rejecting, interferences are absorbed and fed back to the system, although most of them are considered as “grounded”. These radio-wave changes to electricity and magnetic field to affect the whole system, causing a negative effect on the background darkness, sound staging and dynamics, resulting in dull, contracting and tight sound.
Our final choice is costly carbon fiber sleeve for shielding, which will not be affected by any magnetic field and rejects interferences without absorption in nature. When used in conjunction with Vari-Twist Technology, it brings the already state of the art cable to a whole new level.
1.5M-6M, every 0.5M
All WestminsterLab cables come with white sleeve finishes. Customers can request the cable to be
wrapped in real carbon fibre shielding for extra cost. The pictures above demonstrate the difference in
appearances for both finishes.
