How To Use DNM 4-conductor Ribbon Cables, with new photos (in a new window).

Designed for use with normal-to-low sensitivity loudspeakers DNM Resolution matches the audio performance of DNM Precision 2 but it can be used with larger audio systems, longer cable runs, speaker sensitivity below 89dB/watt and more powerful amplifiers.

The ribbon dimensions are set to reduce the capacitance and slightly increase the inductance, to ensure amplifier stability with longer runs of cable. The result is a stereo ribbon 25.5mm wide and 2.7mm thick with the same facility for easy installation as the Precision cable but with a much higher performance in medium to low sensitivity speaker systems.

The DNM Resolution ribbon is 25.7mm wide x 2.7mm thick and it contains four 1.3mm diameter high purity copper conductors. A single length of DNM Resolution connects two stereo speakers or one bi-wired speaker. Easy-separation lines in the ribbon make cable preparation very easy.

The unique design of the DNM ribbon places the conductors above the ribbon's centre-line to project the magnetic field through air rather than insulation. The cable's structural Q is low because the easy-separation lines also reduce the ribbon's stiffness.

Visually DNM Resolution is equally advanced, with a semi-transparent outer ribbon and coloured insulation on the conductors but a third layer of neutral-grey insulation makes the ribbon blend into the background. The insulation colours are visible only when needed - as the insulation is stripped.

The electrical parameters of DNM Resolution, its capacitance, inductance and resistance, are aligned to improve the driving amplifier's stability and sound quality.

The characteristic impedance of DNM Resolution is accurately matched to (optional) high frequency termination networks (HFTN's). HFTN filters greatly improve performance when the cable is connected to amplifiers using negative feedback. They can be added at each end of the cable when the ultimate audio performance is required.

The recommended way of using the new DNM Stereo Solid Core Speaker cable is as follows :-
The cable directionality can be determined by noting that the print runs in the same direction as the signal.
At the amplifier end separate the cable just enough to allow the plugs to be fitted and plugged into the amplifier.
Then try to run the ribbon complete without separating it as far as possible towards the speakers to gain the full performance benefit of the fixed spacing of all the conductors. Run the cable along the planned path to the furthest speaker before cutting it to length. Then separate the cable ribbon into the two channels back to the point midway between the speakers to allow connection to the left and right speakers.

See the illustration of how to separate the speaker cable ribbon for use.

DNM Stereo Solid Core Precision 2 speaker cable - New Design
DNM Precision 2 speaker cable


Pricing example from the cables page of the DNM shop :
5 stereo metres of DNM Precision 2 speaker cable £108 including VAT.

How To Use DNM 4-conductor Ribbon Cables, with new photos (in a new window).

Precision 2 sets the highest standard of audio resolution in a compact cable that is ideal for smaller audio systems with sensitive loudspeakers (over 89dB/watt). Its magnetic performance is designed to give a balanced capacitance, inductance and resistance - factors that, when correctly aligned, improve the driving amplifier's sound quality.

Four 0.8mm diameter high purity oxygen free copper conductors are positioned above the plane of the cable ribbon to reduce the Q, the insulation dielectric effect and the cable capacitance.

In appearance Precision 2 cable is equally advanced : its semi-transparent ribbon is fully colour coded by the insulation sheaths on the conductors.

New in the Precision 2 design is a third layer of neutral grey insulation used along the length of the cable to hide the colours so the ribbon visually blends into its background. The cable's ribbon is only 19.5mm wide x 2.2mm thick, about the same size as the original DNM mono Solid Core.

Within this small size a 4 conductor cable is enclosed that can be used to connect a pair of stereo speakers, or to bi-wire one speaker. The ribbon is designed to separate easily into two speaker lines, each with 2 conductors, to allow connection of the left and right speakers.

The recommended way of using Precision 2 cable is as follows :-
Determine the cable directionality by noting that the print runs in the same direction as the signal. At the amplifier end separate the cable enough to allow the plugs to be plugged into the amplifier. Then run the ribbon complete (without separating it) as far as possible to the speakers to gain the full performance benefit of the fixed spacing of all the conductors. Run the cable along the planned path to the furthest speaker before cutting it to length. Then separate the cable's ribbon into the two channels back to the point midway between the speakers to allow connection to the left and right speakers.

January 2016 : New V3 Design DNM Stereo Solid Core Interconnect cable

New V3 DNM Stereo Solid Core Interconnect cable - diagram


Price example from the cables page of the DNM online shop :
1 stereo metre of DNM V3 Interconnect cable £53.40 including VAT.

DNM's new third generation stereo interconnect cable has ground (earth return) conductors with only one third of the resistance of the earlier DNM stereo interconnects (2 x 0.5mm diameter outer signal conductors 2 x 0.65mm diameter inner ground conductors), but it still retains the same ultra-low capacitance and distributed inductance combined with a clean magnetic performance, characteristics which have enabled DNM’s cable designs to achieve uniquely accurate music reproduction for over 32 years!

DNM’s latest ribbon cable sets the conductor spacing and the Q of the cable structure to give very accurate tonal rendition to any music signal it carries.

DNM's new V3 stereo ribbon interconnect cable is designed to connect line level sources with the highest fidelity. The dual cable ribbon contains four conductors carrying signal for both left and right channels.

1 stereo metre of DNM Interconnect cable £29.40 including VAT.

DNM-built 0.5 metre stereo interconnects from just £50.68 including VAT in our online shop.
(Just add another half a metre of interconnect cable to get a DNM-built 1m cable for £65.38 including VAT.)

The dual DNM ribbon halves the number of cables needed, giving a neater interconnect installation. The design characteristics of the ribbon are described in the "More technical details" link below.
