MISSION Speaker Cable [Mk.II]
MISSION Speaker Cable [Mk.II]
Zu Mission Loudspeaker Cable (LC) Mark-Two (Mk.II) has excellent resolution and has a tone center right smack in the middle of the music weighted power spectrum. While it performs well on the extremes, it never looses its rock-solid performance in the meat of the music. It’s agile and dynamic yet will not highlight or emphasis problems in recordings, your room, or playback rig.
Mission LC Mk.II builds upon the great balance of tone and detail of its predecessor [Mk.I] by significantly increasing immunity to electromagnetic interference and static. This is accomplished through the addition of state-of-the-art nano engineered high conductance carbon shielding. With the increased immunity to RF and static the user will experience improved resolution and overall system ease.
Engineered from the ground up and manufactured in-house, Mission LC Mk.II will give the listener better sound through improved management and integration of conductor, insulation, cabling, shielding, connector and termination, resulting in a cable assembly that not only improves the sound of the system but feels good to your primitive brain. Take us up on our 100% money back 60-day satisfaction guarantee and see if Zu Mission loudspeaker cables improve the sound of your system.
Price is for a matched pair (one left/one right). Please let us know connector needs with your order. Singles are simply half price.
Mission LC are built on a signal and power transmission technology originating with Nikola Tesla, an electrodynamics format that allowed for very wide bandwidth and large power transmission. Within the cable’s E&M model, we combine pure U.S. refined and drawn copper with U.S. extruded insulation. Additionally, Mission LC has a very supple hand and we build it to last several lifetimes.
Mission LC Mk.II is not a permanently directional cable; it can be used in either direction. However, we pay close attention to direction of manufacture of all points, from wire to cable, and identify this by placing arrows on the y-out barrels. Arrow (>) would point away from the source (power amplifier), and toward the load (loudspeaker). Connecting it like this ensures matching channel fidelity, increased burn-in speed, and allows the user to easily identify direction after cable or gear swapping.
Mission LC will require a good bit of play before it’s fully burned in, roughly 200 hours. We do not recommend any burn-in devices or special recordings. We do recommend music you enjoy, preferably upbeat full spectrum recordings: rock, roots, full orchestra, big band.... For the possible how and whys about burn-in please see our Answers section.
No maintenance is required for the cable or the connectors save for the annual copper spade cleaning. If your connector contacts are nice and bright, don’t worry about it. However, anytime you are making an electrical connection make it a habit to inspect the contacts and clean them if they are tarnished or dirty.
