| Which Supra products have achieved
In short, there's many highly respected Supra products you can consider purchasing
- all of which will improve the quality of any hi-fi or home cinema system.
|Digital video cables:
|If you are lucky enough to own (or are planning to own) a DVD or Blu-Ray player,
set-top box (such as a Sky or Virgin Media HD box) with a "HD Ready"
projector or plasma that uses the latest HDMI or DVI signals, then we have just
the thing for you:
Supra's HF100 HDMI / DVI cable - already a 5* reviewed product (Ultimate
Guide to HDTV, October 2005) and officially sanctioned by Silicon Image
in the US as an "Approved HDMI cable", recognised by HDMI.ORG.
Supra HF100 supports High-Definition video and can be used to carry 720p
and 1080i and 1080p signals, even over a long length - up to 20 metres (DVI<>DVI)
and 15 metres (HDMI<>HDMI). HF100 also supports digital audio, where suitable
hardware is also "designed" to send/receive the digital audio signal.
Supra HF100 cable is tested and fully complies with the HDMI v1.4a
test specification so all Supra HF100 HDMI cables, up to 15m in length are "High
| For your Freeview or Sky box (or your old VCR !):
A Supra FS fully wired scart cable would be brilliant carrying both sound
AND pictures signals - experience digital TV properly! And having been awarded
, it makes
perfect sense to upgrade the "freebie" that came with your Freeview,
Freesat or Sky set-top box or VCR.
|Analogue video cables:
| For your DVD player or Sky HD Box (if you do not have a HD screen or projector
A Supra AV3 Component video cable conveys superb high definition signals
from most current DVD players. Plenty of termination options, such as phono, BNC,
VGA, DVI and scart and available in a wide range of lengths - up to 20 metres
|For your High-End DVD player, an RGB only scart cable:
The Supra AV6 scart to scart cable carries just RGB, s-video and composite
video signals - no other signals carried, so a clean, high resolution picture
But if you do need sound as well, then the upgraded version, called AV6.4,
will do the job perfectly well as this uses the exact same conductors as the award-winning
AV6, but with the addition of 4 audio conductors, enabling the AV6.4 to carry
high-res video and audio.
| For your DVD (or CD/SACD) player or transport:
X-ZAC fibre optic cable - twice voted Best Buy by What Hi-Fi magazine
- a true high end fibre optic (aka TosLink) cable, triple polished for maximum
signal transfer integrity.
Even the cheaper Supra ZAC fibre optic cable is a Hi-Fi Choice "Bronze
award winner" (Dec 2004).
Either can be used to connect a Sky HD box to your AV receiver or processor
(in order to hear the Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound audio channels, via your AV system).
|The Supra Trico triple shielded co-ax digital cable
is ideal, if an electrical connection (aka S/PDIF) from DVD or STB is preferred.
Voted Product of the Year and now with a What Hi-Fi 5 STAR review.
|For connecting audio equipment together:
interconnect cable provides a warm balance of sound, without losing detail
Likewise, for HIGH-END analogue systems the Sword-ISL (fitted with RCA's)
or Sword -IXLR (for balanced audio connections) has been voted an "Editors
Choice" in numerous hi-fi magazines.
|Power Supply (mains) cables:
| We now have Supra LoRad shielded mains cables available
in a factory-terminated packs of 1m, 1.5m and 2m. These are terminated with
a UK 13Amp plug and an inline IEC connector. So changing over to a LoRad cable
is as simple as powering off your component, disconnecting the power lead from
the wall socket, re-connecting the LoRad cable and then powering up the system.
LoRad is also available "off the reel" in two forms - LoRad 1.5 and
the thicker LoRad 2.5. So you can buy the cable and terminate it yourself (or
get an experienced DIY-er or electrician to do it for you).
|Twice a Bronze Award Winner
| For budget systems:
Supra Classic 4mm multi-stranded
tin-plated OFC cable - in constant production for over 25 years and still
one of the best!
|For mid-priced systems:
Supra Rondo 4x2.5T Bi-Wire
speaker cable - get the most out of your biwired speakers at a very reasonable
price and in two different coloured outer sheaths the choice is yours -will you
take Ice Blue or Anthracite?
|For higher-end systems:
Supra Ply 3.4 or Ply 3.4/S
speaker cable. Low inductance cables mean less interaction with your amplifier
and speakers, meaning better sound.
And now Hi-Fi+ AND Hi-Fi News have raved about the Supra Sword cable
- it's not cheap, but it works !!
