Hand-made in France since 1997.
It's our entry-level model, but it inherits the technologies that Esprit has developed since its inception. We've put all our love into the Alpha model to allow you to discover a musical universe of richness and transparency, while remaining within the reach of music lovers who are demanding with their high-fidelity system, but who want to spend a moderate budget on cables. Whether it's the quality of the copper, the copper/silver plated connectors or the finish, this is a true Esprit cable, carefully assembled, and certainly the first step towards the higher Esprit range.
“They are basically high-end cables that forgot to get a bit too ‘spendy’. Everything about them, from the box they come in, to the braided shield, to the quality of the connectors, all says ‘money’, and the performance they elicit isn’t exactly cheap-sounding either.” Alan Sircom, hi-fi+
• Asymmetric electrical structure

At the heart of all Esprit cables is the design philosophy to transmit signal and power as close to the original as possible. While this sounds simplistic in nature, delivering this result is extremely difficult. Cables by their passive nature cannot improve sound, but the best cables are more faithful to the original signal. You can’t add detail or dynamics; you can only lose it. As you go higher in the Esprit line, the cable designs go further to aid in transmitting the signal with even greater accuracy or less signal loss. The result, even from Esprit entry ranges, is a presentation that clearly shows the natural qualities, the harmonic and dynamic richness of your system in an unmatched way.
Esprit has garnered a reputation in high-end audio circles as one of the very elite cable brands capable of delivering a musically natural, engaging and transparent sound.
