Straight Wire speaker cables
SPEAKER CABLES
 

Straight Wire has one of the largest ranges of speaker cables in the industry. kemela has been a dealer since 2001 and very familiar with sonic performance of all the products.

Crescendo 3 was just launched at CES 2015 and is the latest version of the companies flagship and very popular speaker cable. Straight Wire has also had much success with Expressivo speaker cable that uses air core insulation technology.

Straight Wire speaker cables employ a careful choice of conductor materials, insulation, plugs and solder, and are fabricated under strict manufacturing conditions for consistent performance quality. Manufacturing methods used include slow speed wire pulling for better consistency, and Straight Wire's own Compressed Conductor Technology that controls individual strand spacing and delivers the combined sonic advantages of both solid core and individual strand designs.

We carry a small supply of rare legacy Straight Wire speaker cables such as Black Silc, Maestro and Duet that are still ideal for specific purposes.
kemela has the experience required to recommend appropriate cables for great results with specific amplifier/loudspeaker combinations because we provide cables for use in the high end products we actually sell. This is supplemented by our close liaison with Straight Wire's experienced consultation services for gear we do not sell.

The personal service we offer makes for a more appropriate purchase than automated on-line vending can provide. At the end of the day buying the right cable for your particular system is more important than what reviewers and bloggers have found may work well in their systems and rooms. We can advise on termination choice and compatible interconnects and power cables from Straight Wire.

Particularly with Straight Wire's wide range of designs, it is possible to match most of the amplifier brands to speaker brands taking the room characteristics and preferred presentation style into account. Even systems which have been piecemealed together can be made to sound better for a reasonable price. The introduction of Expressivo speaker cable, adds an air core type insulation design to the portfolio. The degree of separation and air that is heard between instruments reinforces the 3D soundstage without false magnification - a performance attribute not normally achieved at this price level and typifies the high value Straight Wire approach.

We offer competitive pricing especially when combining speaker cables with interconnects, power cables, digital or HDMI cables.
