Kimber KS 1116 XLR Interconnect Cable

“Step up to superb sound with Silver Streak. Ideal for all “upscale” audio and video applications, fast, clean, and clear Silver Streak includes many advanced cable technologies found in Kimber’s costliest models. — Stereophile “Recommended Component”

” … A sonic leap over the original formulations, I hear more of everything and a realistic, but relaxed presentation, that’s just magical. I truly believe this is the sweetheart of the line … Integration of frequencies from top to bottom are near perfect. These are truly lovable wires and never stress your ears. The Kimber Kable Select KS 1016 and 1116 are most highly recommended” — Robert H. Levi, Positive Feedback

The Kimber KS 1116 is their very best all-copper balanced analogue interconnect and the introduction to the super Select range of cables. Using a specially-enhanced pure copper to ensure optimal signal transfer and V-fluorocarbon insulation to maintain the conductor purity, the conductors are arranged around Kimber’s core compound to enhance the interference-rejecting weave and isolate the cable from micro-vibration. The effect is to create a sound that is wonderfully detailed and natural, with a vast soundstage and realistic dynamics.

Six solid core copper conductors layout a smooth unwavering road for high resolution analog signals. The 2:1 rectangular profile of the copper conductor extends the top end while maintaining copper’s warmth and ease.

Only the best Hyper-pure, molecularly optimized copper is used in Kimber Select KS1116. KS1116 is built by using their constrained matrix orthogonally braided geometry. Silence is the most powerful feature of this cable. The KS 1116 geometry and dielectrics drastically reduce background noise and noise floor. Lower noise floor equals increased dynamic detail. The KS1116 has a haunting presence. With no spurious noise to compete for your ears the full range of sound can be presented the same way it would naturally occur. Their ultimate goal with this no-compromise cable was to find the limits of an all copper design. Meticulously handbuilt by the same team for over 10 yrs Kimber Select represents their finest work.

The KS 1116 features “studio grade” XLR type connectors with silver plated contacts.
