Below is a list of proprietary Wireworld wire technologies and a breakdown of what they do.
COMPOSILEX® 3 Insulation
Insulation materials are considered very important in innovative cable design and designers usually select whatever standard materials they find to work the best. The problem with that approach is that none of those standard materials provide both low loss and low triboelectric noise. To overcome that limitation and create quieter cables, we developed our own composite insulation materials. Now in their third generation, Composilex 3 insulation materials are uniquely blended to minimize both noise and loss, enabling us to hear more musical detail and three-dimensionality than ever before.
Composilex 3 insulation has made great improvements in the performance of Wireworld Series 8 cables. It is totally unique to our brand and the incredibly quiet background, tonal purity and expansive soundstaging it provides are a revelation in sonic realism. It works by reducing triboelectric noise, which is caused by static charge/discharge effects generated where conductors touch insulation. The noise is induced by movement, vibration and signal energy. Engineered for the lowest triboelectric noise of any low loss insulation material, including DuPont Teflon, Composilex 3 provides a major advance in preserving tonality, spatiality and dynamic contrast.
DNA HELIX® Cable Technology
The foremost Wireworld technology is the DNA HELIX (Delineated Neutralizing Array) conductor geometry, covered by US patents 8,569,627 and 9,620,262. This unique technology uses layered flat conductors with parallel strands to prevent the electromagnetic ‘eddy current’ losses caused by conventional stranded and solid conductors. The results are audible and measurable improvements in preserving musical detail, natural tone quality and dynamic expression.
Proprietary Wireworld conductors that utilize flat groups of parallel strands to provide smoother signal flow.
The design used in Wireworld power conditioning cords to minimize interference and interaction with the power line. Fluxfield technology was developed by comparing generations of prototypes to perfectly quiet battery power. This process resulted in power cords that improve sound and image quality by filtering and isolating noise. Since they function as filters, longer lengths are more effective, so we recommend two meters or longer for the best performance.
(US Patent 5,413,503)
Silver-clad tubular OFC contacts with Dupont Delrin® insulator and innovative silicone tension band make this the best fitting and highest conductivity RCA plug in the world.
The official network cable categories (ie. Cat5/6/7/8) only include twisted pair cables, so these non-twisted twinax cables cannot be rated by those test specifications. However, it is interesting to note that the 100Gb/s (QSFP+) Ethernet cables used in internet server installations are also twinax designs. The patented “Tite-Shield™” design utilized in these cables places the conductors in parallel, with each of the four pairs isolated from the others by dense triple-layer shields. This radical flat design is so effective at isolating noise that replacing only the final cable in the network can substantially improve sound quality. Since these cables function as filters, longer lengths produce greater improvements and the flat design makes it easy to coil any extra length.Uni-Path
The Uni-Path design provides similar advantages to the more complex DNA HELIX design in high speed digital applications. Uni-Path designs improve both electromagnetic efficiency and shielding to provide superior waveform preservation. This innovation enables more of the original signal information to be reproduced, improving both sound and imaging.
