About WireWorld Eclipse 8 Terminated Speaker Cable
The Wireworld Eclipse 8 speaker cable has the refined tone quality of the world's purest copper in a seriously upgraded design. Eclipse 8 speaker cables provide the world class performance of the Octo DNA Helix at a cost that suits many high end audio systems. Eclipse 8 has the further distinction of being WireWorld's largest cable with Ohno Continuous-Cast 7N copper conductors.
Hear More Of The Original Sound
Wireworld was founded with the unique mission of perfecting audio cables through objective listening and scientific tests ensure that each new generation of cables lets you hear more of the original sound than previous cables. After five years of development beyond the highly acclaimed Series 7, Wireworld have released the Series 8 cables, the next step toward musical perfection.
For Series 8, the DNA Helix designs have been upgraded by increasing the number of strand groups, which strengthens the electromagnetic field that moves the signal through the cable. Also, the third generation composite insulation, Composilex 3, combines low loss with the lowest triboelectric noise ever for amazing purity and focus. The combination of these technical improvements provides surprising upgrades in recreating the power and delicacy of live music.
Composilex 3 Insulation: Insulation materials are considered very important in cable design and designers usually select whatever standard materials they find to work the best. The problem with that approach is that none of those standard materials provide both low loss and low triboelectric noise. To overcome that limitation, Wireworld developed their own composite insulation materials. Now in their third generation, Composilex 3 insulation materials are uniquely blended to minimise both noise and loss, enabling you to hear more musical detail and three-dimensionality than ever before.
Composilex 3 insulation has made great improvements in the performance of Wireworld Series 8 cables. It is totally unique to Wireworld and the incredibly quiet background, tonal purity and expansive soundstaging it provides are a revelation in sonic realism. It works by reducing triboelectric noise, which is caused by static charge/discharge effects generated where conductors touch insulation. The noise is induced by movement, vibration and signal energy. Engineered for the lowest triboelectric noise of any low loss insulation material, including DuPont Teflon, Composilex 3 provides a major advance in preserving tonality, spatiality and dynamic contrast.
Octo DNA Helix Cable Technology: The foremost Wireworld technology is the patented DNA Helix (Delineated Neutralizing Array) conductor geometry. This unique technology uses layered flat conductors with parallel strands to prevent the electromagnetic ‘eddy current’ losses caused by conventional stranded and solid conductors. The results are audible and measurable improvements in preserving musical detail, natural tone quality and dynamic expression. The Eclipse 8 features Octo DNA Helix construction which includes 8 signal conductors and 48 strand groups to make absolutely sure every subtle nuance of the music makes it to the other end.
OCC-7N Copper: The patented Ohno Continuous Casting® process creates the world’s purest (99.99999% = 7 Nines) copper conductors. OCC-7N conductors also have the longest grain structure and smoothest surfaces. OCC-7N conductors are only produced in Japan and Taiwan and all 8 signal conductors in the WireWorld Eclipse 8 speaker cable are made of pure OCC-7N Copper.
WireWorld Eclipse 8 Reviews
“In a recent discussion I had with a sharp minded ‘unnamed’ distributor of luxury up market cables and power conditioners, he stated that the MOST IMPORTANT part of a top-quality audio system is your sources, cables, and Loudspeakers. After the last few years, and with my discrete and intense auditioning of the Wireworld Eclipse 8 series cables here, the above-mentioned information may indeed be right on the money!
Without a doubt, the Wireworld range of cables, interconnects and power cords; particularly these newest Eclipse 8 models examined here never fail to produce a high standard of consistent, stable and natural sound reproduction. The whole Eclipse line simply exploits all the components in your system with an honest, truthful and exemplary balance of qualities while at the same time integrating your system in a way that will be quite hard to beat at these prices.
More importantly, upon longer listening sessions, they exhibit an expression of musical reproduction enjoyment that is just completely “right” sounding; meaning: they are so well balanced and tonally accurate that you feel a supreme sense of confidence in them; while acknowledging that you cannot get much better than this within their relative scale of quality. As such, when listening to these cables in your home system, you feel a definitive sense of trust that Wireworld has given you all the goods- and at the right price. The Eclipse 8 combination can, therefore, be regarded by this reviewer as an absolutely excellent value and is wholeheartedly recommended!” - The Sound Advocate
For the seriously music-obsessed, a key gateway to an expanded soundstage, where one comes within grasping distance of the creator’s vision, lies in the purest and most sonically invisible of conductors being the medium between their audio setup. In the audio world, few have come close to reaching this flagstone as David Salz, Founder and CEO of Wireworld. For close to four decades, David has led a renaissance in the cabling world, completely reinventing conductor geometries in his quest for high-performance cables that boast even octave to octave tonal balance, while staying bereft of the signature house sounds that colour many a brand creation. We also support Wireworld as a premier provider of leading edge digital and analogue cable technology for home audio and video, from HDMI and USB audio to state of the art high-end interconnects and speaker cables. They have earned their world-class reputation by producing high quality cables based on the use of objective perceptual testing, innovative patented designs, premium materials, and exceptional manufacturing quality.
