Gamut Reference cables

Get the most from your Gamut system by investing in the right connections.

Gamut’s Reference cables are precisely designed to work hand-in-hand with our speakers and amplifiers, making sure that absolutely nothing gets in the way of you enjoying the full dynamic potential of the Gamut sound.

Reference power cable

How important is a power cable? In a word, it’s fundamental. This is where your audio system begins its journey. The quality of the power that enters your system at this point can make or break its ultimate performance. So it’s worth getting it right, from the start.

The electrical current that your system draws through the power cable is dictated by the musical signal. So, that electrical current needs to be every bit as nimble and dynamic as the musical signal, otherwise the result will be rather like an orchestra that can’t quite keep up with its conductor.

To achieve that agility, the Gamut Reference power cable takes an unusual approach to managing electrical resistance within the cable. Instead of aiming to simply minimise resistance, it focuses instead on keeping resistance equally low across the entire audio bandwidth. Which, in layman’s terms, translates into one pretty nippy electrical current – or a top-flight orchestra whose time-keeping would do any conductor proud.

Our power cable also sports another singular feature: no shielding. Most power cables feature some form of shield which, while designed to screen the cable’s conductors from external electrical interference, also causes internal electro-magnetic energy to be reflected back in. Unfortunately this results in time smearing. To tackle the problem head-on, the conductors in a Gamut Reference power cable are arranged in a very specific geometry designed to effectively cancel out unwanted interference. So there’s no compromise to the dynamic response.

Reference speaker cable

Gamut’s Reference speaker cables are designed along the same key principles as our loudspeakers – which is why they work so beautifully together. It’s a question of finding the ‘just-right’ balance between freedom and control. On the one hand, you want to allow your music as much freedom as possible so you can relish that full heart-rending, gut-busting performance. On the other hand, a musical signal is a delicate thing and in any electro-magnetic environment, several factors are prone to interfere with it.

Rather than trying to banish those factors, we prefer to create intelligent ways of managing them. Usually, those ways are as minimalistic as possible. And sometimes, they involve manipulating the so-called unwanted factors to our advantage.

Take the conductors in our speaker cables, for example. Based on a similar idea to that used in the design of our power cables, the conductors’ geometry is cleverly constructed to effectively cancel out unwanted electrical interference. Why? Because this allows us to dispense with the usual shielding found in most cables which, while providing protection from ‘bad vibes’, also has the unfortunate side-effect of introducing time smearing.  And time smearing limits the delicate musical signal’s dynamic response. Think of it like driving a high-performance car with the handbrake on. Then release the handbrake.

What’s more, each of our Reference speaker cables features not one, but two distinct types of multi-stranded conductor. That’s because when it comes to conductors, we favour specialists over generalists. So the first type is particularly good at handling those thundering low bass frequencies, while the second prides itself on delivering the sweetest and clearest highs. Who says you can’t have it all?

Reference interconnect

A musical signal is a beautiful but delicate thing. A lot can happen to it on its journey from one audio component to the next. Gamut’s Reference interconnects are designed to ensure that its travels are made in first class and it arrives in tip-top condition, raring to go.

When we say ‘first class’, we’re not talking about mollycoddling. On the contrary, we believe in minimum interference and a ‘just-right’ level of intelligent support.

Take our ‘smart screening’ approach, for example. Most interconnects include a layer of shielding which is designed to screen the cable’s conductors from external electro-magnetic interference. But there’s a down side, since this shielding also causes internal electro-magnetic energy to be reflected back in, resulting in time smearing and loss of dynamic response.

Our ‘smart screen’ solution is essentially a shield-but-not-a-shield. In other words, it’s selective about what it screens. It’s extremely effective at preventing interference from high frequency noise, yet it doesn’t create inductance and so the problem of dynamic compression simply doesn’t figure. In essence, there is no shielding below 100kHz. But go above that and you’re covered, so your valuable audio equipment is fully protected. Win-win.
