Tributaries® Launches New Series 4 Cables

Orlando, FL—Tributaries proudly introduces a new series of interconnect cables, handmade at the company’s headquarters in Orlando, Florida. The Series 4 cables achieve a level of performance far above previous models of Series 3 and Series 5 cables, and will be on display during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Suite 29-326 at the Venetian Hotel in conjunction with Clarus Cable and Waterfall Audio.

Tributaries has made major changes in the construction of the audio cables by changing the coaxial design to a perfect twisted pair geometry with solid conductors which yields more accurate signal transfer. Digital and video cables employ a 75-ohm coaxial design with an upgraded solid conductor for a higher level of performance.

The cosmetics of the cable and connectors of the Series 4 line have been designed to elevate this line of cables to a new level of elegance not seen before at this price point. “We are excited with the performance of the Series 4 cables,” said Joe Perfito, President of Tributaries Cable. “The use of new cable designs and updated cosmetics push the Series 4 to surpass the performance of our Series 3 and Series 5 cables. We’re also proud to say these products are made in the USA, allowing us to offer a superior level of quality control.”

Tributaries’ offers new Series 4 Audio Cables for analog RCA audio, balanced audio and subwoofer mono and Y cables. The Series 4 Digital/Video 75 ohm Cables are for digital audio and analog video.

All models available now.

SIM2 Multimedia SUPER LUMIS Global Success

Miramar, Florida—October 16, 2013—SIM2 Multimedia continues to achieve global success following its World tour, touching all five continents, which included the launch of Grand Cinema SUPER LUMIS home cinema projector.

The new SUPER LUMIS has received a glowing review and a full five-star rating from the UK-based magazine Home Cinema Choice. In the December issue, reviewer John Archer said, “Images achieve a sense of depth, texture, colour balance and naturalism that simply astonishes.” He continued, “3D delivery is exquisite” and concluded with “the SIM2 Super Lumis is about as close as you can get to a commercial cinema experience without actually buying a commercial cinema projector”—establishing SUPER LUMIS as a real “reference standard” in projection.

“The Super Lumis is by far our best projector, and I have to say, SIM2 has received over 250 awards throughout the world in the last decade. It is a small product with an enormous heart capable with extremely bright, crisp images,” said Alan Roser, SIM2 UK CEO. “It is fantastic that the UK’s premier home theater publication agrees and aligns perfectly with the feedback we’ve received from dealers during the Global Road Show. We are sure that the Super Lumis will become the new benchmark for three-chip DLP-based high-end home cinema projectors in the major markets around the world, as it has done here in the UK and in the US.”

It was not by chance that the exclusive limited-edition FUORISERIE recently won a 2013 EXC!TE Award from the US-based magazine Technology Integrator, in recognition of products “that stand out for being innovative, high-performing and solutions-oriented for the custom installation professional.”

Since 1999, SIM2 USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Italian projector manufacturer SIM2 Multimedia, has dedicated its efforts and resources to generating opportunities and added value for its exclusively selected US partners by marketing, servicing, and supporting the best products the professional and CI projection markets have to offer.

Over the years, SIM2, with its Italian-developed and -made display devices, has gained a reputation for meeting and often exceeding the industry’s demand for new, emerging technologies and business models, offering unparalleled performance, customer support, and passion. Made in Italy by SIM2 is not only branding, it is also a prestigious mark of excellence!

Clarus Introduces USB for Crimson Series

Denver, CO—September 2013—Clarus® proudly introduces a USB cable for the Crimson Series, specifically designed for High Speed USB 2.0 computer audio applications. The new Crimson USB will be introduced during the 2013 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado in booth 2321.

The engineering of the Crimson USB cable is the result of careful consideration of the complex issues associated with the design of digital cable, namely the preservation of signal integrity including minimization of jitter and the elimination of noise. To satisfy these design requirements, the Crimson USB cable is manufactured from heavy gauge PCOCC copper, Pure Copper by the Ohno Continuous Casting—a process that yields the purest copper available today. The USB features 20AWG power conductors to ensure there is adequate current flow to USB audio devices.

Clarus Crimson USB

To reduce jitter and timing issues, the Crimson USB cable is manufactured using high-precision wire twisting machines that ensure perfectly match twisted pairs. Skin effect is minimized by plating the solid-core PCOCC signal conductors with 6.1% solid silver. For noise elimination, there are effectively six layers of shielding to prevent the power signal or outside EMI/RFI from corrupting the digital USB signal. This heavy-duty protection also prevents emission of the high frequency USB signal from the cable, which if leaked, would adversely effect nearby cabling and electronics.

Like all Crimson Series cables, the new USB is covered with an attractive black and red woven jacket, complemented by painstakingly meticulous hand-craftsmanship.

Available in October 2013 in one- and two-meter lengths.

MSRP: 1m – $250 and 2m – $350

Clarus digital and analog audio Interconnects, speaker, and power cabling offer a patented design incorporating three distinctly different conductor types, each individually insulated; solid heavy-gauge conductors, flat conductors and spiral-ribbon conductors (with a non-conductive core). By designing audio and digital cables with multiple strand sizes and shapes, Clarus Cables dramatically improves clarity, resulting in more open and transparent sound.
