‰ÛÏI couldn‰۪t believe what I had been missing, Odyssey brought my system and my music to life.‰ÛÏ
The most popular and the most compatible speaker cable we produce, Odyssey lives happily in budget, mid and reference systems alike. Whatever system you use Odyssey with, you can be sure that dynamics are carried well and that instruments have a weight and reality to them. Cymbals are noticeably more realistic and acoustic guitars and pianos more lifelike; this ability to carry dynamic information so well means that Odyssey produces a remarkably musical and coherent sound. Good enough in fact to win the Hi-fi News Best Speaker Cable award for five years in a row.
Each set of conductors is made up of 19 strands of silver-plated oxygen free copper surrounded by PTFE insulation. These are heavier conductors than the ones in Rumour and it‰۪s these that give everything (voices, drums, guitars and acoustic instruments) a certain weight and rightness.
Whatever the system and whatever the speakers, Odyssey is a must try speaker cable.
Listen to Odyssey with: Ryan Adams ‰ÛÏWonder Wall‰ from the album ‰ÛÏLove is Hell‰
Hear: A great acoustic version of a classic Oasis song.
Listen for: the little squeaks and squeals that come from playing a guitar with new guitar strings, beautifully bright but just a bit noisy.
Conductors: 2 x 12 AWG 19 strand silver-plated oxygen free copper.
Configuration: Twisted pair configuration.
Conductor insulation: PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene). We believe that to obtain the most neutral tonal characteristic from silver-plated conductors it is vital to use PTFE insulation. White with red stripe is positive, white is negative.
Terminations: Chord 24 karat gold-plated banana plugs, direct gold-plated copper spade connectors and BFA Camcon connectors.

Odyssey has all the performance characteristics of high end speaker cable. It will bring big improvements to dynamics and definition, and bass in particular gains control and definition.
The really interesting thing about Odyssey though is the way it will dramatically improve almost any system it has been used in. It is as easy to hear the improvements in a simple setup with small loudspeakers as it is in a high end system with floor standing speakers.
