Visit Us at CES Venetian Tower 30-234 & 236; Enjoy Argentum Cables at Loiminchay Audio Venetian Tower 29-335
Ultralink/XLO Products, Incorporated — the industry’s fastest growing manufacturer of audio/video interconnects, cables and power products — feature their already well-reviewed Argentum series interconnects and cables at CES.
Argentum Acoustics are designed with solid engineering and advanced materials techniques cultivated over ten years producing cable. They’re designed for high-end, two-channel systems but work extremely well in crossover video installations where sound is paramount. Worldwide demand has been stunning and Argentum Acoustics’ website is now available in four languages.
Being and Nothingness – The Design Brief
Everyone insists that cables must be neutral and totally passive with zero effect on the sound. But the simple facts are that passing current through a conductor and its insulation or dielectric produces well-documented electrical phenomena. That’s why Argentum cables are engineered to be the “active” components they must be to effectively deal with these effects rather than avoiding “inconvenient truths”.
Examples of “active” elements that must be taken into account are many: Current passing through a conductor and its insulator creates surrounding magnetic and electrostatic fields. Then there’s the cable’s characteristic impedance, capacitance, resistance, inductive reactance, plus the capacitive discharge effect that depends on the dielectric constant and its dump or release rate.

Argentum Acoustics cables are manufactured with the very best materials, processes and dielectrics available, hand terminated with beautifully engineered, industrial designed connectors and an elegant black jacket. Conductors are 99.99998% laboratory-grade UPOCC (Ultra-Pure Ohno Continuous Cast) copper except for the silver Argento, featuring ultra-low capacitance DuPont Teflon insulation. The direct 24K gold-plated connections are nonmagnetic and minimal mass ensuring low self-inductance. Speaker cables are terminated with interchangeable 8.0mm billet-cut spade lugs of CDA alloy 101 copper (99.994% pure) directly gold plated with no intervening layer of nickel spoiling the sound. Or choose quality Deltron-style banana plugs. All Argentum Acoustics cables are cryogenically treated during the manufacturing process.
