  • EWA LS-5 Loudspeaker Jump Links


    EWA LS-5 Loudspeaker jump links:


    LS-5 demonstrates what the EWA cable system is about. Using a comparatively minimal amount of materials, LS-5 is a compact and highly capable speaker cable which rewards the listener with full compliance with the EWA design goals. Notice especially the excellent stereo imaging abilities within the widest of soundstages, stable at all frequencies and volumes. This is in part due to exemplary behavior regarding signal phase.


    LS-5 is a particularly sound choice for bookshelf type monitor loudspeakers, from which the listener can expect fine textural detail and vivid timbres. LS-5 is capable of truly extraordinary performance at its price point.


    As jump links, LS-5 makes a lot of sense. Use EWA LS-25 or similar to the bass terminals of your loudspeakers, then LS-5 jump links to link to the treble terminals, as the mid-driver and/or tweeter require nothing like the current of bass woofers.
