Stealth Audio Cables Tantalus And Tanto.


Stealth Audio Cables writes: "The Tantalus and the Tanto are made of ultra-thin pure Tantalum wire (which is the closest sound-wise to Indra and Sakra of all non-amorphous materials we have experimented with). Tantalum was chosen because most audiophiles are aware of Audio Note Tantalum resistors – as the best-sounding resistors of all available. Which makes the new cable easier to market and promote (referring to the known reputation of Tantalum in audio)." 


One of the most stable metals in existence.


"Tantalum stabilizes the signals from lower currents at higher frequencies which gives more clarity and resolution when it comes to sound quality

Absolutely best sounding resistors - ber none - are Tantalus resistors. 

Using our proprietary RCA connectors (both RCA and XLR): machined carbon fiber shells, solid silver XLR contacts and RCA center pins, solid silver ground/return for the RCA connectors, and Ultra-modified PTFE (Teflon) instead of the conventional PTFE. The Ultra-modified PTFE offers superior dielectric properties (reduced permeability and a lower dielectric constant - which offer even lower energy storage and further reduced "crossover-type" distortion in cables and connectors), better mechanical characteristics (significantly lower deformation under load, higher elongation and tensile strength - these qualities improve the "grip" of the STEALTH connectors on the chassis mounted counterparts), plus a pore-free and extremely smooth surface - preventing contaminates from being trapped in high purity applications. Appearance-wise, the Ultra-modified PTFE is similar to the PTFE, the only visual difference is a shade of blue in the Ultra-modified version. 

Both our own listening and feedback of our trusted listeners confirm the excellent sound of STEALTH Tantalus (the Tantalum cable).

The Tantalus uses our Proprietary non-resonant cable geometry: STEALTH multicore distributed LITZ, which is the same geometry that the Sakra uses. 

The Tanto uses our “vari-cross” geometry – the cross-section of the cable varies along their length; this is done to improve the impedance matching between the source and the receiving end - which is our signature geometry that the Indra uses."
