Many identify the effects of RF interference as a harsh sound similar to digital glare which ultimately makes the music sound fatiguing. The presence of RF noise can sometimes be mistaken for detail or a widened sound stage but this is merely an artefact of the interference and is not true detail. Many say that the presence of RF is most easily recognised when it is eradicated. In other words, listen with your normal cables and then try the WAVE Storm reference cables. Most instantly hear the difference saying the music sounds darker, more relaxed and with more detail coming through. Owners of the cables also report that the bass is deeper and has more detail. A vague desire to turn the volume down is instead replaced by a desire to turn the volume up which in my experience is always a sure sign that the RF noise has been eliminated from the system. Indeed I now find that I can listen at higher volume levels without the music ever appearing 'loud'. Rock music actually sounds like rock music should and classical music is allowed to be played at realistic concert levels all without harshness.
Read the comments below from our customers to see what the WAVE Storm Reference cables have done for their Blu MkII and Dave systems.
Here at WAVE we have also been carrying out listening tests and it seems that the use of the WAVE Storm Reference between the Blu2 and Dave also reduces the impact of different USB sources plugged into the Blu2. Our current working theory is that the WAVE cables suck so much noise out of the digital signal before it gets to the Dave that this means that any noise on the incoming USB gets taken care of as a matter of course by the WAVE BNC cables between the Blu MkII and the Dave. If so, this is an unforeseen added benefit of using the WAVE Storm Reference BNC dual data cables.
The cables are designed and manufactured in the Vale of Belvoir in rural Leicestershire. You are very welcome to make an appointment to listen to the WAVE Storm Reference BNC cables with our Chord Blu2 MScaler and Dave DAC. Please bring your own BNC cables and CDs for a direct comparison with the WAVE cables. Email Nick (email@example.com) to arrange a demonstration session.
At the heart of the WAVE Storm, BNC cables is a 5N (99.999%) pure solid silver conductor to allow a strong digital signal. A foil screen is incorporated for high-frequency shielding together with a silver-plated mesh screen. The result is a true 75-ohm cable. High-quality BNC connectors are used and these are silver soldered throughout with particular attention to providing a full circumference solder connection to the sheathing for STORM Reference grade performance. Each of the WAVE Storm Reference BNC cables incorporates 20 ferrites to filter out RF interference.
These ferrites are carefully selected to target the specific problem frequencies. The ferrites are also tightly fitting on the cables which increases their effectiveness. The WAVE ferrites can be contrasted with clip-on split ferrites which are often targeting the wrong frequencies which are loose-fitting. Clip-on ferrites also pinch the dielectric and the screen is brought closer to the central conductor at the pinch points resulting in a changed cable characteristic.
Many of our cables are available in ‘Naked’ or ‘Dressed’ versions. The pictures of our cables probably explain the option most easily. The ‘Naked' versions have exposed ferrites (red or black) and the ‘Dressed’ cables are sheathed. The internal construction, performance and price are identical for both versions.
You can choose your cable appearance choices when adding the cables to your cart. The price is per 1m pair inclusive of worldwide tracked delivery and UK tax. Cables in the EU are delivered in custom hessian bags and a wooden box with WAVE branded logo. Cables outside the EU are delivered in custom hessian bags and in a robust double wall cardboard box and foam liner.
