The Eclipse 6 Speaker Cables have 12 conductors (6 per leg) of Ohno Continuous Cast Copper, for a total of 10 gauge 4.6mm2 of end surface area conduction on each leg. HDPE is the dielectric (High Density Poly-Ethylene). The conductors are small strips laid out side-by-side- alternating the + and - legs, as shown in the diagram below. WireWorld calls this the Diagonal DNA Design™. By having the flat strips against each other, this minimizes the electromagnetic field reactive impedance. Each strip consists of round strands of wire laid side by side. The Diagonal DNA Design™ applies only to the speaker cables, while the technology in the interconnects is called DNA Helix™.
The Platinum Eclipse Interconnects (shown in the photo at the beginning of this article) also use the DNA Helix™ conductor design, which are OHNO Continuous Cast Solid Silver, with a Composilex™ dielectric and Silver Tube™ Carbon RCA Connectors that have silver-clad oxygen-free contacts. Compsilex™ reduces certain types of electrical noise. These are WireWorld's top-of-the-line interconnects. They come packed in a metal box with latches like a briefcase, as well as a Certification of Authenticity. Of course, this is part of the "presentation" that goes with such cables. The box would be useful, however, for storing documents.
Shown below are the Eclipse 6 Speaker Cables.
This photo illustrates the Gold Starlight 6 Digital Interconnect next to the Eclipse 6 Interconnect. Besides the slip-over tube label, you can distinguish the digital coax by the single red stripe on the cable jacket.
