Alpha represents the zenith of in-wall speaker cable design. There is not another custom installation speaker cable in the world that undergoes such a strict regiment of design and manufacture. Even directionality of the Alpha is taken into consideration.
To determine directionality, each quantity of Synergistic Research Alpha actually goes through subjective listening tests BEFORE the jacket material is even applied, to give the purest accuracy and most musical presentation.
This is a 12 AWG, 2 conductor cable constructed with Type I Copper Matrix conductors. The high resolution conductors are enveloped in clear multi-extrude Polyethylene, and shielded by 100% Aluminum Mylar with a drain wire provided. The jacket material is a frosted modified Polyvinyl.
