In developing and testing products, TARA Labs relies on a balance between subjective listening tests and objective measurements. Our audio cables are designed using proven mathematical formulas and our own steady-state measurements of the conductor designs, together with extensive listening of the products to ensure their superior sound and complete compatibility in all audio systems.
The following papers describe some of the technical aspects of cable design. We think you will find them illuminating.
|CCZT Paper||Explains Constant Current Impedance Testing, TARA Labs' proprietary testing methodology. CCZT highlights the fundamental reason that different audio cable designs sound different.|
|Decade Paper||Explains the design philosophy behind RSC Decade, TARA Labs' flagship cables, and how they differ from other cables in the RSC family.|
|Consonant Alloy Paper||Explains the benefits of TARA Labs' proprietary conductor material and why it outperforms all types of pure copper and silver.|
