Straight Wire interconnects

Straight Wire interconnects are designed to convey the low level signals between source components with minimal loss to preserve all the musical information. Straight Wire interconnect designs employ a careful choice of conductor materials, insulation, plugs and solder, and are fabricated under closely controlled manufacturing conditions for consistent performance quality. The interconnect range is quite large to better match most of the leading brands of source components at various price levels with a variety of sonic presentations. Balanced versions are available throughout most the range. All interconnects ordered through kemela are hand-assembled by Straight Wire.

Crescendo 3 is the latest version of Straight Wire's radical low resistance twelve conductor large diameter interconnect that that offers smooth unfatiguing sound in a vast 3D soundstage.

Other standouts in the range include Rhapsody S, a six conductor helical design with locking RCA plugs that provides great dynamics and Expressivo which has excellent performance at its price point. Straight Wire interconnects will meet the interfacing needs of source components within sound systems of all price levels while providing captivating reproduction.

kemela is one of the largest Straight Wire dealers in the south east and has been associated with Straight Wire since 2001. We have a small supply of rare legacy interconnect cables such as Maestro II and Virtuoso Gold. kemela's experience in providing cables for use in the high end products we actually sell, and our close liaison with Straight Wire's experienced consultation services, (which includes retail sales experience and through providing manufacturers with cables for demonstrating at shows) is an important benefit we offer over other on-line vendors. At the end of the day buying the right cable for your particular system is more important than what others have found may work well in theirs.

From time to time we acquire B-stock cables, including Crescendo interconnects, at significant discounts. Call kemela if you are looking for top performance at lower cost. We also offer competitive pricing especially when combining interconnects with speaker cables, power cables, digital or HDMI cables.
