Cables with copper or silver stranded conductors suffer from complex oxidation. The semiconductive ’diodes’ between the strands aren’t seen by steady tests, but look like a high capacitance to music signals. This causes energy storage/release cycles, that regular tests miss, yet which is audible with music. This problem is also describable as the electron flow being ’trapped’ inside strands & twisting away from the direct route.
Supra Ply is a largesection, low resistance cable, overcoming skin effect & transient distortion, using pure tin plating. Tin melds to copper with-out any diodic barrier, & also protects the copper from common corrosions – ideal for outdoors & 12 volt. Most audiograde cables’ conductors are damaged by contamination, by plastic out-gassing, from the impure atmosphere, & liquid spills. Some are protected but only by a thin coating that’ll one day crack with use and age. Neatly, oxidation forming on Ply is sonically benign.
