Dynaudio North America is pleased to announce that the company will now be supporting the OCOS speaker cables (produced in Switzerland under license for Dynaudio) as the exclusive distributor for the USA and Canada.
OCOS, which stands for Optimal Connection System, was developed under the principal that a cable should be completely transparent
a transparent medium which transports the music signal.
OCOS: Constant Impedance
OCOS cable maintains a constant impedance, no matter how long the run. OCOS is in fact the first and only loudspeaker
cable with absolute constant impedance throughout the entire frequency range, matching that of a normal loudspeaker.
The benefit being that the amplifier "sees" the speakers directly, as the cables are truly transparent sonically. A further benefit
of OCOS's constant impedance is that there is no drop -off in performance with varied lengths of cable, and even with long
lengths (up to 100 meters) the impedance retains its constant value and the sound remains neutral and balanced. This makes
OCOS ideal for home theater/multichannel applications that typically require asymmetric cable runs, as the cables for the
surrounds are identical to the mains, and the same high sound quality is maintained at all speakers, even with long runs to the
surrounds. Likewise, any system which may require longer than normal runs of speaker cable will benefit from the constant
impedance of OCOS as there will be no drop -off in performance or sound quality, regardless of the length of cable utilized.
OCOS: Coaxial Construction
The coaxial construction of OCOS yields a relatively small outer diameter, making the cable easy to manage or hide out of
sight, which along with the ability to effectively utilize long and un -even length runs makes it ideal for home theater systems,
for second zones, or any other application where high quality performance is desirable and long or asymmetrical runs of
speaker cable are required.
OCOS will be available in the most popular pre -terminated lengths, but may also be ordered custom -finished in any length
desired with a copper wire termination, which is suitable for large surface direct connection to use with banana plugs or spade
connectors. OCOS can also be terminated with its unique male "plug" socket to allow further cable extension via an accessory
OCOS cable can be upgraded to the ultimate performance variant by running triple -strands of the cables - otherwise referred to as OCOS TT (Triple Twisted). By using more than one cable for each (single wired) connection, there is even less
resistance and greater transparency, which is most noticeable in the deep bass region.
