Shun Mook Western Electric Speaker Cable
Shun Mook Vintage Wire Cables are all made from N.O.S. old western electric cloth insulated wires. As we know modern plastic and synthetic material used to insulated copper wire degrades the sound quality.
Modern wires are designed to withstand the heat and stress generated in the copper. This makes the power system safer, however, sound wise it is not so good.
Since the electrical demand of high fidelity cable is very low, we can go back to vintage wires and build various cabling for our needs.
Their WE wire cables use a very critical fixed length as they found that the length of any cable is most critical. A few microns of change can result in big differences.
So each cable is micro-tuned by ear-listening. The special lengths they use are:
Speaker Cables – 14 feet
Furthermore, all their cables carry an additional (non-connected) tuning wire. It only wraps around the main conductors and use for fine tuning a system when installed. It acts like a coil winding and thus wrapping or unwrapping one turn or half a turn can adjust the sound easily.
