NEW FALKENOHR CABLE LAYING SYSTEM-CSII

Excellent sound is ensured by keeping all components of a hi-fi system free of interference. This also applies in this form to the cabling of the devices. In order to decouple connecting cables optimally, FalkenOhr has developed the CS-II cable laying system. Any kind of disturbance by vibrations is minimized with its help. While electromagnetic interference can be achieved by high-quality shielding of the cables themselves, vibrations and shocks must be tackled in other ways. Structure-borne or airborne noise from various sources impacts on the hi-fi cabling from the outside as well as from the inside. A solution that is as all-encompassing and flexible as possible is therefore necessary.

FUNCTIONALITY

In order to enable an outstanding sound of the components of your HiFi system, they must be kept as free as possible from interference. Of course, the same applies to the connecting cables.

In addition to the classic electromagnetic interference, which can be reduced to a minimum by excellent shielding of the cables themselves, mechanical vibrations and shocks also influence the reproduction quality.

Vibrations occur in various ways and can be transmitted by structure-borne or airborne sound.

Structure-borne sound is generated, for example, in the housings of the hi-fi components themselves and is transmitted from there directly to the cables. These vibrations are more or less pronounced depending on the design of the components.

The airborne sound for example generated by loudspeakers stimulates our eardrum but also all other bodies to vibrate.

As a result of these requirements, we have developed our new CS-II cable laying system with the following features.

• NBR O-rings for cable bearing - for conversion of vibration energy into heat and for mechanical decoupling of cables

• Flexible use for cable diameters from 6-20 mm

• conversion of vibration energy into heat

• Additional decoupling of the cable mounting bar to the HiFi rack

Your benefit: Clean orderly cable routing and a minimization of external interference on the cabling and thus a clear improvement in the sound quality of your electronics.

This results in the following criteria for the best possible cable installation:

• Extensive structure-borne noise decoupling of the cables from vibrating bodies

• Decoupling of the cable laying from the airborne noise by a housing = FalkenOhr Genium Line

• Conversion of the inevitable vibrations introduced into the cable into heat

• Lay cables floating freely and as tension-free as possible without clamps

Countermeasures

In order to minimize the transfer of vibrations to the cabling, CS-II takes the following criteria into account:

• The optimal detachment of the cables from vibrating bodies.

• Decoupling of the cable laying from the airborne noise by a housing such as FalkenOhr Genium Line

• Conversion of the inevitable vibrations introduced into the cable into heat

• Lay cables floating freely and as tension-free as possible without clamps

Implementation

The CS-II cable laying system achieves a clear improvement in sound quality by using NBR O-rings for free-floating mounting of the cables. This converts vibration energy into heat. The cables with a diameter range of 6 to 20 millimeters are also mechanically decoupled. In addition, CS-II makes use of a further decoupling system between the suspension and the hi-fi rack.
