A reference cable for audiophiles around the world, Monocle-X touts conductors wound around a proprietary flexible polymer spacer.
“The Monocle X is a superb speaker cable. Should you doubt just listen to the textures of brushed cymbals in In The Wee Small Hours of The Morning, or to the timing and drive of INXS’s Devil’s Party or myriad of other events that can be found in the recordings (the soft sound of keys touching the body of a flute are a good example). To keep it short: the Kimber Monocle X crosses the border from hifi to high end.” — Audiodrom, October 2011.
A reference cable for audiophiles around the world, Monocle-X touts conductors wound around a proprietary flexible polymer spacer. The Kimber Monocle-X opens up the electrical properties, delivering better timing and imaging, lowering the noise floor, and increasing the sense of space. Monocle-X brings an unprecedented price-to-performance ratio to the audio cable world. The level of engineering, technology, and beauty that this cable provided are without equal – in particular when considering its price. The transparency and accuracy of Monocle-X is comprised of sixteen individual VariStrand conductors, symmetrically inter-woven around the proprietary X38R core compound.
16 wire braid of TC and VS conductors around Kimber X38R stabilizing core. The best of both TC and VS attributes with a lower noise floor. Expanded braid geometry offers better mechanical and electrical damping as well as extends dynamic range on both ends of the spectrum give you a huge soundstage and precise imaging. All the instruments get a little more elbow room when you move to Summit series speaker cables.
