Matched Propagation Technology
Cardas' patented, Matched Propagation cables (US Patent 7,674,973) address a core problem that is intrinsic to all
cables (audio, telephone, data, etc.), matching the signal propagation velocity of the
conductor to that of the dielectric quite clearly improves the sound of audio transmission.
The trouble is Dielectrics
The best solid insulating materials transfer charge 22% slower than standard conductors.
This is a mismatch that can be corrected in only one way; you must match the velocity of the
conductor to that of the dielectric in the cable itself. Networks, working after the fact, cannot
restore lost low level information or the lost time integrity of the music.
The Matched Propagation Solution
Cardas' ingenious, patented solution uses a precisely controlled coated strand geometry to
mitigate the effects of cable capacitance continuously in the cable. This technique eliminates
the low level smearing and preserves musical integrity and dynamic range by correcting an
imbalance in the basic velocity relationship of the cable's conductors and dielectric.
Huge Dynamic Range of Resolution
Matched propagation cables preserve phase, dramatically lower resonance effects, have a
huge dynamic range and amazing resolution. They preserve low level detail, leading edge
integrity and accurately preserve the heart, soul and emotion in the music. Matched
Propagation technology brings unprecedented clarity and realism to your listening experience.
