Ecosse Reference ES 2.23+ Speaker Cable
In its first year of launch the ES2.23+ loudspeaker cable (formerly ES2.3) received its first comparative review, a 5-star/'Best-of-Test' (against many, more expensive cables) from What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Magazine. Next followed its second-a wonderful ovation from the prestigious audiophile Hi-Fi World Magazine. They said:
"…this cable is an example of high-end technology at a sensible price and one for the more 'experienced' audiophile wishing for an all round, yet advanced sounding cable."
This Premier+ Grade cable has almost 800 copper strands (400 per conductor) of our UF-UHP-OFC -we call this Ultrafine™-Copper™- delicately woven wire-each just 0.07mm diameter. Never before has a cable comprising so many strands been packed into just 3 sq mm of cross-sectional conductor area, and offered at such a cost effective price.
Structurally, the ES2.23+ consists of twisted copper strands, low dielectric loss polypropylene insulation, cotton damping and soft PVC sheathing. The Ultrafine™copper strands, in 7 concentric parallel bundles per conductor, are woven in a precision rope lay. The cotton damping is particular effective at eliminating the deleterious effects of 'microphony vibrations' (resonances) - a consideration ignored by many of our established competitors.
With the ES2.23+, we at Ecosse Reference are proud to have produced yet another cable that sets new standards in the performance/price arena.
