About Van den Hul The Clearwater

A great way to get into a high quality silver plated speaker cable for a very reasonable price. The van den Hul Clearwater has detail and clarity to spare combined with a natural appealing warmth. This description is for a 2 metre terminated centre speaker cable.

With the design of The CLEARWATER, it was AJ van den Hul's intention to produce the best match between quality and price. The decision was taken to work with 2 groups of strands with a conductor size of AWG 14; this was because in many situations the distance between the amplifier and the loudspeakers is limited. Therefore a twin-lead construction was made with 2 x 98 strands of a dense very pure silver coated Matched Crystal (MC) Oxygen Free Copper.

The two conductor groups are twisted in opposite directions. The resistance of each lead is: 0.9 Ohm/100 meter. The capacitance between the two conductors is: 17.5 pF/meter.

Sonically this cable is a great product with a very balanced overall quality. There is no harshness and the spatial reproduction is superior. Just as its name suggests: "The sound is as clear as water" Well maybe not if you're thinking of the muddy waters of the Yarra River, but definitely if one considers the sparkling mineral waters of Hepburn Springs!  What is more interesting is that this has been a very popular speaker cable for more than a decade and is well received by both the International Press and quality audio dealers.

The cable’s jacket is made of transparent HULLIFLEX 3, a robust halogen free material excellently capable of shielding the copper conductors from the chemically threatening outside world. The jacket on each lead is different in shape and the flat middle section in between has a printing on one side: both properties are easy polarity finders. Type printing at 25 cm. (10") distance makes cutting of specified lengths very easy.

Terminated Centre Speaker Cable

This description is for a single 2 metre Van den Hul The Clearwater terminated centre speaker cable that has had quality colour-coded QED cold-welded AirLoc Metal banana plugs fitted to each end - 4 in total. This is done by an experienced audio technician and so is done right and saves you the time and "fiddle" of doing it yourself which can be a problem if you don't have the right tools. And the price is no more than you would pay for the separate items. If you have a need for a "custom" length then we can organise that. Just give us a call during business hours to place your order. 

In The News

The well known UK Hi-Fi Magazine What Hi-Fi? has given Van Den Hul Clearwater a 5 Star review. Here are some of their comments. "The jacket covering The Clearwater speaker cable has an almost jelly-like consistency, which makes the cable extremely pliable – it’s one to consider for installations. The appeal goes up a couple of notches thanks to a balanced and involving sound. Play Drake’s 'Started From The Bottom' and the cable helps to reveal great power and depth from bass notes and crisp, far-reaching highs. And it’s all done without sacrificing anything in the way of cohesion and integration. There’s an impressive level of detail, dynamic clout and clarity, but this cable also allows your system’s sense of refinement and finesse to shine through."

What Hi-Fi? Verdict: "Natural-sounding vocals and plenty of layering and texture to instruments really give tracks the ability to communicate effortlessly with the listener. A cable with an impressive level of detail and dynamic clout. Recommended."
