Apex Speaker Cables
Quiescent’s award-winning Apex ultra-low noise speaker cables deliver unparalleled clarity to any system, transforming an audio experience into such realism that it is the reference benchmark for industry reviewers.
The Quiescent Apex Speaker Cable is the ultimate in high-end speaker cabling.
Building on the knowledge gained over the last 20 years, our engineers re-evaluated the effects of electromagnetic interference on radio frequency propagation and the mechanical vibration of conductors.
The result is the Apex ultra-low noise speaker cable.
Apex ultra-low noise speaker cables are a single-wire cable constructed from four 1.25mm solid-core silver conductors terminated with WBT nextgen™ silver 8mm spades or WBT nextgen™ silver 4mm banana plugs.
The Apex is the ultimate in high-end speaker cabling. It is built on the knowledge gained over the last 20 years minimising high-frequency noise-causing inter-modulation of the audio signal. In addition, our engineers re-evaluated the effects of electromagnetic interference on radio frequency propagation and mechanical vibration of conductors devising an improved solution to absorbing these damaging artefacts. The result is the Apex ultra-low noise speaker cables.
Whilst many manufacturers focus on signal conductivity, the Apex uses methods to control the propagation of damaging electrical and mechanical oscillation transmitted along the length of the cable. A key design consideration was to use filtering strategies that do not interfere or damage the musical signal in any way while ensuring that any unwanted noise is eradicated, providing superior performance. The Quiescent ultra-wideband, multi-phase filter is the culmination of our research, and it is so small that you wouldn’t even know it is there. The only indication of its presence is an improved audio experience overall.
Another vital characteristic of all our cables is that we use conductors that sit within a Teflon™ air tube, ensuring that capacitance is incredibly low. AS a consequence, the signal’s time domain as it is sent to the speaker undergoes no phase changes. Once the conductors are in their air dielectric, they are fed into our proprietary EMI absorbing sheath and finally into a braiding with very low acoustic transmission properties.
With all this attention to detail and manufacture, the Apex speaker cables have a low noise floor and a high transient current carrying capability, improving musicality, bass propulsion, and tonal accuracy to an extent that is impossible to miss.
