Current Spyder 

Benefits

 

  • Two layers of screening

  • No external field around power cord

  • Connectors with high contact pressure and excellent contact surface

  • Can easily transport high currents without power loss

  • Protects your equipment by the Pulse Protector inside

  • Reduces cable mess

  • Twisted OFC Copper stranded wires

  • Very transparent sound due to at least 50% less contact joints compared to multiple sockets

  • More rest in quiet music parts, more details and improved soundstage

Current Spyder

Working principle

 

Without noticing we are in a very polluted environment. Everywhere around us fields arise from currents flowing through conductors, signals from radio stations, mobile phones, WiFi and other communication networks. Electromagnetic interference is not visible to us, it's just there. Each device using energy causes fluctuations on the network in the form of peaks or surges, or causes a variation in the electromagnetic fields in the air. The effects occur around the device itself and on its mains supply, but even far away from the device the fields are still measurable. This can only be measured with suitable equipment, not with our ears.

 

Common thought is that shielded power cords protect the connected devices better against influences from outside, which is true. Much more important is that the field created by the fluctuating current inside the power cord itself does not reach interlinks and speaker cables in the neighbourhood. Interlinks transport small signals to audio devices with a high input resistance. This high input resistance makes equipment extremely sensitive to interferences.

Many power cords for audio purposes look beautiful, just like ours. But appearance is not all!

The Current Spyders use dual shielded cables. The outside shield is NOT braided steel (a steel screening does not function as a shield but is meant to protect the cable against physical force). Instead, the Current Spyder cables have a braided high density COPPER screen with a layer of tin which prevents oxidation. Under the tinned copper shielding lies a 100% closed aluminium foil for suppression of high frequencies. In contradiction to a synthetic foil, this solution works!

The OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) stranded wires are suitable to conduct high currents without resistive losses (the losses of energy in the form of heat). The earth wire is connected at both sides, the shield is only connected at the feeding side, as it is supposed to be.

 

The connectors provide high contact pressure and excellent contact surface which results in optimal conductivity. Finally, we gave the plug a nice CNC machined hood.

Clever thinking!

The idea is simple: a power cord with at one end a single power plug and at the other end three output cables with IEC connectors.

The primary cable is available in two lengths (75 and 150cm) and the secondary cables are available in lengths of 20, 30 and 40cm or 3x 40cm, so if you have a stacked set of equipment the Current Spyder L will hang down without taking a lot of space behind your set.

 

The result: reduced cable mess and much better performance. The Current Spyder L (on purpose with 'y', just because we like it) is equipped with a Pulse Protector to protect your valuable audio equipment.

Where to use

 

The Current Spyder L not only makes audio sets perform better, it also reduces the visible cable mess. The relationship with your life-partner will become much better. Probably you can give hints to have this for your birthday!

 

The Current Spyder L is designed to feed audio equipment standing on top of each other. Thus, the Spyder will hang down and disappear behind the set while lowering the external fields.

What to expect

 

The result of using our Current Spyder L can vary from small changes to big surprises. The most heard improvement is the quietness in silent parts of the music as well as more noticeable details and more holographic soundstage.

A high quality recording with on average a low volume and high dynamics will benefit most from the lowered background noise.  This background is most described by our users as "dark" and "deep".
