The Ultimate Audio Cable

indra_audio_cableBy Asim Waqar

Stealth Audio Cables from Derwood Maryland have a line of audio cables named Indra. These Indra cables are amorphous. Allow me to explain what this means and what the benefits are. Then, and only then will I tell you the price.

Dictionary.com’s fourth entry for amorphous reads : “Lacking distinct crystalline structure.”

The crystalline structure found in even the most high-end cables is the cause of signal degradation. The Indra cables are manufactured by first heating a metal and then cooling it to minus 192 degrees with liquid nitrogen. Then, a hot metal alloy ( 1,090 degrees) is poured on. The rapid cooling of this alloy prevents any signal degrading crystalline structures to form. Apparently this design has its roots in the Russian military or space program.

The result is a 0.025mm in diameter — 10 times lower in gauge than gold wire – cable that facilitates noise and artifact free audio transmission . That is driving audiophiles to say things about these cables like

“You could say that the Indra caused a kind of profound whole-body relaxation of the music. Music now appeared to be free of effort, free of former reminders of electronic artifacts. It floated in expanded space as pure sounds rather than being mechanically processed and thus left with a certain tension, grit or texture as part of that processing.”

    Ahhh. The price of pure sound without electronic distortion.

    Next thing you know, they will put price restrictions on sound waves entering your ear!

    If you’re stupid enough to spend six large on a single set of audio cables, when you could probably hire an actual chamber music quintet for a week or two at that price, you deserve to be robbed blind. However, if you’re that rich and that stupid, you could hire me as a consultant to tell you when you were doing stupid things with your money instead.

    These were made by a consortium of cable manufacturers of the likes of Monster to help their retarded customers justify buying a $200 HDMI cable…sheesh, audiophiles are just hearing things…

    “That is driving audiophiles to say things about these cables like…”

    That sounds like a classic audiophile quote – utterly lacking in substance, reasoning or measurable qualities. I have *never* seen a hi-fi magazine measure audio quality the right way, namely using calibrated test equipment and measuring distortion and frequency response across the audio spectrum. Until they do, I will say that all hi-fi articles are shit, because they aren’t giving results in any meaningful terms. The vagueness of audiophile reviews and articles is indistinguishable from the vagueness used by fake psychics to con people – that should tell you something…

  7. […] Last time I came across Stealth Audio, it was for their ridiculously expensive Indra line of audio cables that went for a mind-numbing $5750 a meter. Well, now there are news of a new set of cables that might actually end up being more expensive. They have analog interconnects made entirely of carbon nano-fibers (including the connector shells and center pins); there is absolutely no metal of any kind in the signal carrying part of these cables: the conductive fibers directly transform into the center pins of the proprietary STEALTH RCA or XLR connectors at the ends of these cables, making the signal path free of any kind of joints, solder or crimp. Seems interesting enough. No metal in the cable, less chance of interference, equal better sound. […]

    Amorphous metals are not particularly new, nor were they developed for defense purposes. Their principal use is in the special magnetic steel used in the cores of electric power transformers. Magnetic domains are crystals, so the elimination of crystals changes the magnetic properties of the steel such that it doesn’t heat up as much as its magnetic field is repeatedly reversed. While amorphous metals are undoubtedly used in other applications, I rather doubt that amorphous copper would be of great benefit in audio work. I would also want to investigate whether the crystals re-form in the wire-drawing process, which severely deforms the wire and thus necessitates annealing between successive dies.
