NVA SPEAKER CABLES
NVA LS2 Speaker Cable
Whilst a higher model number than LS1, LS2 is in fact our entry-level loudspeaker cable and has the correct electrical characteristics for safe use with all NVA amplifiers. It is an extremely cost-effective entry into the NVA range. LS2 will also work extremely well with all non-NVA amplifiers.
NVA LS1 Speaker Cable
The cable which gives a very good hint at what is to come in its bigger brothers, LS3 & LS5. It has a leaner bass response than those (especially in the case of LS5) and would suit loudspeakers which perhaps need tightening up a little. It also makes for an excellent choice when bi-amping, used for the run from power amp to tweeters.
NVA LS3 Speaker Cable
Displays more harmonic detail – decay on acoustic guitar hangs on for longer, for example. Inner keyboard accompaniments are more obvious, adding colour to the mix – music hangs together better now, with a greater feeling of ensemble. More dynamic punch and detail as well.
NVA LS5 Speaker Cable
Transient dynamics have gained further weight, as has the level of bass response. Rhythm is more metronomic, locked-down, gaining direction ie it’s easier to detect where things are going. To use an analogy, it’s as though a darkened room has been lit up and the furniture is now visible – and most importantly we’re not tripping over it! Some customers have noted the ‘LS5 effect’ as being akin to moving to a larger power amplifier.
NVA LS6 Speaker Cable
This can be a surprise to start with, sounding slower, perhaps softer than LS1, 3 & 5. That’s until you listen to something like Pollini playing Chopin Nocturnes and it all becomes very obvious. His touch, turn of phrase, those tiny inner dynamics which lend each phrase its colour – those vertical moments in musical time which sound fine on their own, have been joined up to create a horizontal chain of events which is what music is all about. By this stage, the loudspeaker cable has just about disappeared. Once run-in, LS6 if anything has even more dynamic prowess than LS5.
NVA TSCS – The Speaker Cable Statement
Previously known as LS7 but classified as part of the statement range, this is the pinnacle of the NVA speaker cable range – 156 separately insulated cores of higher quality thinner silver alloy. All the benefits of LS6 but with far more open access to the music.
