Warm Audio Premier Series Cables offer the highest quality possible at a price low enough for everyone to afford, with construction robust enough that we could offer a lifetime warranty. Well known as the original supplier to some of the industry’s elite manufacturers (their 3-conductor wire was known simply as “the Neumann Cable” for decades), Gotham’s cable construction techniques and technology now represent the current state-of-the-art. Warm couldn’t be happier to partner with them on these new cables, and we can’t wait for you to use them!
Warm makes two lines of cable - Premier and Professional - in order to offer the largest number of options and highest quality possible in two different price ranges. Both lines take advantage of Gotham’s state-of-the-art construction, offering absolutely stellar audio performance, near-perfect signal transfer and the ultimate in reliability (which is why they both feature a lifetime warranty!). Both cable lines produce fabulous results, but the Premier line adds above-and-beyond features like gold-plated connectors, a braided outer wrap, four-conductor Starquad construction for powerful rejection of RFI and Double-Ruessen shielding for increased rejection of EMI. There simply is no better-sounding or more reliable cable on the planet, and Warm Cables don’t come with a gold-plated price tag - these are wires that everyone can afford!
A traditional balanced cable uses three cores of wire to carry the audio signals: one shielded core for the hot/positive leg, one shielded core for the cold/negative leg (which is wired in reverse polarity to the positive leg), and a plain outer wrap that functions as the ground. A balanced audio system effectively rejects most induced noise encountered along the cable’s length by removing signals that are common to both the hot and cold legs.
StarQuad construction takes that concept even further, by using four cores instead of two: two cores each for the hot/positive and cold/negative legs and a single ground. This helps to further shield the audio from RFI (radio frequency interference) even more than a traditional 3-conductor cable.
Most cable construction techniques use an outer wrap of wire to act as the ground. Some manufacturers braid this wire, while others simply wrap the wires in a highly uniform way to shield the interior wires from electromagnetic interference.
Double-Ruessen shielding goes much further than more traditional techniques in two ways: First, the cable is wrapped with not one but TWO separate shields, and second, the outer shield is wrapped in a contrary direction to the inner shield. This creates a stronger and more complete shield from EMI for the internal cores, and can result in an astounding reduction of interference. Double-Reussen shielding is a tad more expensive to manufacture, but for those who will accept nothing but the best it represents the pinnacle of balanced cable technology currently.
Precious metals aren’t just pretty, some also have characteristics that are advantageous for signal transfer. While the actual audio transfer ability of gold and silver connectors is roughly similar (without context, silver is actually slightly better in that regard), Warm put gold connectors in the Premier line primarily because gold offers more resistance to corrosion than other precious metals do. However, both Premier and Pro sound amazing, which is to say that Warm cables will not color the actual audio signal at all!
Warm use a braided nylon outer wrap on the Premier line for a number of reasons: the wrap removes the friction that occurs when rubber or PVC rub together, so it’s much easier to handle and wrap the cable. No more fighting with a squirrel’s nest! It also adds an element of strength and reliability, as it helps to protect the cable’s PVC jacket from damage due to pinching or binding when being moved around. And it just feels better, to be honest - it has a soft and supple feel that inspires confidence!
