Longtime Cardas users will recognize Iridium’s physical resemblance to the classic Microtwin Interconnect and Twinlink Speaker cables. And they’ll appreciate the performance enhancement. After more than 20 years as mainstays in high-end audio, those cables were the succeeded by Iridium in 2017. The Iridium cables are evolutions of their predecessors, with improvements in dielectrics, and greatly enhanced flexibility and feel. With Iridium, natural treble is blended with a smooth midrange and quick bass response for a very musical speaker cable.
The Iridium cables are the most attainable products in the Cardas lineup to feature Golden Ratio Stranded Litz conductors. In a Litz conductor, every copper strand has a non-conductive enamel coating that must be burned off with flux & a solder pot prior to termination to a connector. There are performance benefits that come with these conductors, including the mitigation of skin effect. However applying the Single Poly Nylon coating to Cardas copper increases material costs, and termination of Litz conductors is labor intensive, so it is not feasible on their entry level products.
