A simple placement of a hand on a breaker box will illustrate how much vibration can be caused by the flow of electricity. Vibration is one of the largest issues in electricity, and as a result we focus on it a lot. Scientifically speaking, energy and matter are neither lost nor gained, but only change form. When an electrical signal enters a wire, it is met by resistance. To overcome this resistance, work is required. The products of the work are heat and vibration, converted from the energy of the original signal. Therefore, at the other end of the wire you are left with only the amount of electrical signal that was not lost to these byproducts of the work demanded. The breaker box may be an exaggeration of what can happen within a cable, but NVS Sound has still found that any means taken to reduce vibration results in a large increase in fidelity, especially in clarity, size of the soundstage, and accuracy of timbres.
NVS Sound started by using specially provided conductors, but over the years and through many experiments, found that there wasn’t anything on the market that had all the attributes combined into one assembly that NVS was happy with. Having developed relationships in various industries over the years, NVS Sound was able to use multiple suppliers to create the most musical, least obtrusive-to-the-sound conductor. From the drawing to the annealing process, the exact size of the conductors, whether there are multiple sizes (introduced phase shift vs. single size conductor bundles), braided to a specific PIC instead of twisted, thickness of cold drawn Teflon, and a decreased time of processing from conductor drawing to dielectric extrusion, all these things contribute to make the NVS Sound conductors unique. Many cable companies would have been content only with these conductors as a final product, but of course, even with all of this technology, NVS Sound found that the powder technology still positively affected these incredible conductors. Total AWG size was also found to be better modulated by adding or subtracting solid wires from the braid, not by changing the wire size.
