The Konstantin was the very first speaker cable Entreq ever produced and it remains to this day incredibly popular in its latest incarnation – Konstantin Infinity.
It takes the performance of the Discover cable directly below in the range and builds upon it in every way. Tonally it is very similar but it just gives you more of everything. It paints a bigger picture, giving you a much wider, taller and deeper sound-stage in comparison to the cables below it and delivers much high levels of resolution whilst never sounding artificial or fatiguing.
As with all Entreq Speaker Cables the negative conductor is made from Copper and the positive conductor is made from Silver. Entreq do not price their cables per metre in the conventional way, all of their speaker cables are available in fixed lengths, starting at a 2.5m pair, additional stereo increments are 60 cm long.
Entreq recently made a revision to their speaker cables and it now comes included with 0.55m ground cables that are hard wired into the amplifier end of the speaker cables, they have also included a Ground Box, which is called the Diskon box, this is a little smaller in size than a Silver Minimus, but is larger than a Primer Box. This means you now get everything you require to get up and running in one box and it offers brilliant value for money, many people were put off by the fact you had a to choose your ground cables and ground box separately.
Since these changes have been made this cable has been incredibly popular, so far every customer who has borrowed this cable has bought some.
You also get a great upgrade path for the future with the Diskon Box as well – it’s a fantastic little ground box and works incredibly well, but swap it out for a Silver Minimus or Olympus Ten in the future and you will get a dramatic improvement in performance.
Characteristics of Entreq Cable Design
1 Separate cable for positive and negative signals
2 Asymmetrical design
3 Positive and negative cables are spun clockwise and anticlockwise respectively.
4 Adapted lengths to minimise the antenna effect.
5 DIC Dedicated contacts so the area on the mass of the contact areas correspond to the cable area.
6 Wood in the contact framework. Non-magnetic and non-conductive.
7 Only pure copper or/and silver in the signal paths. No alloys,
8 Drain wire instead of shielding in order to connect to a pure earth point (External Earth Drain System)
9 Cotton covering instead of synthetic materials
10 EEDS External Earth Drain System
This entails the shielding / drain wire not being connected to the device’s negative pole, but is connected to another external earth point (a ground box!)
Please note: We keep long lengths of this speaker cable available for home demonstration so if you would like to try it in your own system please get in touch
