Tributaries introduced their Series 6 line of interconnect cables, hand-made in its Orlando, Florida headquarters, which they say outperforms their own Series 5 and previous models of Series 7 and 9. Developed by celebrated cable designer, Jay Victor, the Series 6 incorporate the same unique performance features of the Series 8 cables, with main difference being the use of a slightly reduced grade of cooper.
- Digital and Video cables made with solid 20AWG conductors that are 1.25% silver plated to create a low resistance path for high frequency signals
- Digital and Video cables can be terminated in the field using the Tributaries’ PROFIT Compression connectors designed for RG59
- Audio cables made of individually insulated, dual-gauge conductors, designed to maximize the balance between the bass and midrange/high frequency signals, while improving sonic resolution
