When Warm Audio decided to manufacturer premium audio cables, they partnered with Switzerland-based Gotham AG - Europe’s top producer of premium cable, known as “The Neumann Cable” for decades. The construction and components, in partnership with Gotham AG, allow Warm Audio to offer top performing cables, near-perfect signal transfer, and ultimate reliability.
Warm makes two lines of cable - Premier and Professional - in order to offer a wide variety of connection types in two different price ranges. While both product lines take advantage of Gotham AG’s state-of-the-art construction to deliver near-perfect signal transfer and offer a lifetime warranty, the Premier line adds above-and-beyond features like gold-plated connectors, four-conductor Starquad construction for powerful rejection of EMI, and Double-Reussen shielding for increased rejection of RFI.
Warm Audio cables do not add gain, color, effects, or try to add anything “extra” to your signal. The purists at Warm believe that premium cables should “Do no harm”, transferring interference-free signal from connection to connection.
Warm Audio cables are some of the better-sounding and more reliable cables available, and thye don’t come with a gold-plated price tag. Compared to other high-end cables offering lifetime warranties, Warm Audio cables cost 25-35% less on average.
A traditional balanced cable uses three cores of wire to carry audio signals: one shielded core for the hot/positive leg, one shielded core for the cold/negative leg (which is wired in reverse polarity to the positive leg), and a plain outer wrap that functions as the ground. A balanced audio system effectively rejects most induced noise encountered along the cable’s length by removing signals that are common to both the hot and cold legs.
StarQuad construction takes that concept even further, by using four cores instead of two: two cores each for the hot/positive and cold/negative legs and a single ground. This helps to further shield the audio from RFI (radio frequency interference) even more than a traditional 3-conductor cable.
Most cable construction techniques use an outer wrap of wire to act as the ground. Some manufacturers braid this wire, while others simply wrap the wires in a highly uniform way to shield the interior wires from interference.
Double-Reussen shielding goes much further than more traditional techniques in two ways: First, the cable is wrapped with two separate shields, and second, the outer shield is wrapped in a contrary direction to the inner shield. This creates a stronger and more complete shield from RFI for the internal cores, and can result in an astounding reduction of interference. Double-Reussen shielding is a bit more expensive to manufacture, but for those who will accept nothing but the best it represents the pinnacle of current balanced cable technology.
