Karma-AV has added Reference LS-404 Micro Air loudspeaker cables, from the German ‘physics not voodoo’ brand in-akustik, to its audiophile cable offerings. In-akustic’s ‘Micro Air’ technology aims to minimise the physical filter effect of cables by deploying air as a dielectric to insulate concentric copper conductors, which are helically arranged according to a proprietary design. A thin layer of polyethylene protects the pure copper from oxidation.

Accordingly, the new Reference LS-404 Micro Air speaker cable uses air as the insulation surrounding a total of eight concentric copper conductors in a multicore architecture, arranged so that the magnetic fields of the positive and negative conductors overlap and neutralise each other.

This specification is said to reduce the inductance of the cable, thereby for better transmission of the audio signal over a broad frequency range. Karma-AV suggests partnering with larger floor-standing loudspeakers.

The Reference LS-404 Micro Air is available with BFA bananas or with spades, or as an Easy-
Plug version. The surfaces of the BFA bananas and the spades are finished with a rhodium coating and are therefore extremely durable. Contact surfaces are manufactured from a single piece to minimise contact resistance.
