unique hand crafted, tempered Argentum alloy audiophile cables from Italy
materials solution with properties designed to handle bandwidth frequencies and power levels

Why Yter?

"Each cable is hand made to request at time of order by the artisan, Massimiliano",

The legendary name of Franco Serblin will stir the hearts of many audiophiles who have used his speakers at one time or other. Franco sold the speaker company he built and many of us though he would quit the high end business and enjoy his retirement (if I am not wrong, he is in his seventies). However, like many talented audio designers, there is always so much to be done. In his last speaker design, he experimented with some new cables developed by a company called Laboratorium that were using space age alloys, the results was such a drastic improvement over the high quality cables used previously that he was fascinated enough to keep working to perfect the use of this material.

Using the science of metallurgy, Franco and Laboratorium worked to further develop this cable material. The result is Yter cables – using a pure silver and palladium alloy, cold extruded and mechanical weld with connectors. No heat is applied after the alloy has been fused hence no solder is used. This new cable design has all the ideal properties for conduction of audio signal. In Franco’s words – ‘metallurgical coherence in the path from the source to the speaker drivers.

Yter cables are available as interconnects, balanced interconnects, speaker cables and power cords. We would like to invite you down to our showroom to audition the cables. Are they the world’s best cables? Perhaps not, but it is definitely amongst the best cables available at any price.

Franco Serblin on YTER Audio Cables
During my last challenging project, the Sonus faber "Stradivari homage", I felt the need to use an internal wiring conductor which was not another product derived from the telecommunication industry with solutions based in radio frequency theories, but a materials solution with properties designed to handle bandwidth frequencies and power levels.
 
So emerged a new conductor based in conceptual and structural terms, on the following premise: the transfer of the audio signal from amplifier to speaker, and in particular those at the micro signal level, depends more on the physical structure of the metal than on the absolute value of conductivity in the wire. 
 
Solution:
 
To intervene at a metallurgic level to obtain order and homogeneity of the conductor's crystalline structure, thus providing greater compliance of the music signal within the signal path. Pairing Silver (Ag) and Palladium (Pd) using a new three-phase fusion process is the basic element of the alloy. The crystalline homogeneity of the special alloy is the basis for the metallurgic harmony found in our conductor, almost as if it were a metal "tune". 
 
The result of this development is a speaker cable that ensures metallurgical coherence in the path from the amplifier to the drivers.

Laboratorium is dedicated to the entire manufacturing process for this new project.

  • First, there is the melting of Silver and Palladium to create our alloy.
    We then cold extrude our special alloy in a water bath to form an electrostatic balanced, Gaussian shaped conductor.
    The component connectors are then realized using our same special alloy.
    Finally, conductor and connector are cold fused with a mechanical weld where solder is neither desired nor required. With the finished speaker cable product, the music signal passes through YTER and only YTER.
    The result is a Reference speaker cable fit not only for Stradivari Homage, but all other fine loudspeakers of the world.
YTER cables manufactured in Italy and are used as the Internal wiring for the famous Sonus Faber Stradivari Homage, Amati Anniversario, and Guarneri Memento speakers.

After numerous auditions of many reputable brands, Yter interconnect and speaker cables were unanimously chosen by the Auckland Audiophile Society as their reference cables for use at their music evenings.

And Cavi Sounds Sexier than Cables, too...If you want a pedigreed cable at a sane price ….investigate the Yters.

I almost forgot the chic part: The Yter wires come supplied in utterly gorgeous, black leather portfolios that are so Italian it hurts. The best surprise of all emerged from a third, tiny wallet: a set of Yter's fabulous silver banana-to-spade converters, which come with a special tool for spreading the banana's socket end if it's too loose. They've thought of everything. I guess we have to look on the Yter wires as the Armani suit of the cable world.
