TARA Labs Zeroes In On Performance For Extreme Systems

TARA Labs unveils the Zero™ interconnect and digital cables delivering unrivaled sound reproduction for the most extreme systems used by professionals and in the home environment.

Ashland, Ore., Nov. 18, 2005 - Combining three proprietary technologies developed over the past 20 years: rectangular solid core conductors, isolated floating shields, and vacuum air -tube™ construction, TARA Labs today relaunches the Zero™ interconnect and digital cables delivering unrivaled sound reproduction for the most extreme systems used by professionals and in the home environment.

"The newly designed Zero cables combine the best of both proven and new technologies to eliminate distortion and deliver accurate true -to -live sound," said Matthew Bond, TARA Labs founder and chief product designer. "Matched with a system that is equal to the task, the Zero comes as close to musical perfection as it's possible to come."

"The Zero's x -ray ability to clarify very -low -level tone colors, dynamic nuances, and performance details way back in the mix," said Jonathan Valin in his review of the Zero and Omega in The Absolute Sound. "The remarkable level of ambience retrieval, the electrifying transient speed and definition, and the front -to -back transparency, bottom -octave color, clarity, and authority associated with the Zero is unrivaled."

Specialized RCA and XLR plugs are now integrated into Tara Labs' Teflon Air -tube™. The plugs permit air to be drawn out of the air -tube™, eliminating distortion.

"[TARA Labs' Matthew] Bond has improved upon his ingenious Teflon air -tube design. When it comes to the retrieval of very -low -level, deep -in -the -mix/back -of -the -stage information (including ambient information), nothing I've heard can beat out the TARA Labs Zero and Omega," added Valin.

The Zero line consists of the Zero Interconnect and Zero Digital cable. Zero cables eliminate coloration and distortion making the slightest details, tones, and micro -dynamics audible. The durable engineering of the Zero features flexible end segments that allow the cable to be bent at a 90° angle without compromising the vacuum. Additional specifications of the Zero cables include:

Zero Interconnect
- Capacitance: 4pF/ft.
- Inductance: 0.018uH/ft.
- Vacuum rating: -65 kpa
Zero Digital
- Impedance 110 ohm
- Vacuum rating: -65 kpa
The companion Omega™ speaker cable uses 108 RSC® conductors per leg, the equivalent of a 4 AWG cable.

The Zero Cables are available now through TARA Labs network of authorized dealers.
