Our Nova speaker cable consists of PC-OCC single crystal copper in a multi-strand litz construction with an individually insulated silver coated core. Using a tight strand/high pitch lay this 12 AWG speaker cable can handle the most demanding systems and loudspeakers on the market.
Nova-OCC exudes power and grace allowing your system to feel unconstrained, and nourished with the correct amount of pure and steady power it demands.
The Nova like all of our cables goes through our Ultra Sonic cleaning process where we run the raw copper through a water bath that is super charged to burn away dirt, oil, particals and impurities on the surface of the wire. This Ultra Sonic Bath also has the added unique effect of giving our cables a pre-burn sound that could take hundreds of hours to achieve through normal use.SPECIFICATION

Deep Cryo™ Treatment
All of the conductors used in our cables undergo Deep Cryo™ treatment before the insulation is extruded over the metals. Our research has proven that the conductor—and only the conductor— benefits from cryo-treatment. Materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC™), Teflon™, PE, and Silicon™ can all be adversely affected by cold-temperature annealing. Cryo-treating non-conductors and insulating materials can cause them to break down and become brittle.
The purity, size, and molecular structure of each conductor determine the specific temperature within the -186ºC to - a 196ºC range that we cryo-treat it at. Zavfino’s research into cold temperature physics has proven that the absolute lowest temperature is not necessarily the best for cryo-treatment.
This is a two-stage process. In the first stage we draw the bare conductor through a ceramic die into an ultrasonic cleaning chamber that bombards the conductor with multiple ultrasonic frequencies. This emulsification process removes all debris from the surface of the wire down to the molecular level and leaves absolutely zero residues.
UltraSonic 7 High Voltage / Thermal Break-in
This is a two-stage process. In the first stage we draw the bare conductor through a ceramic die into an ultrasonic cleaning chamber that bombards the conductor with multiple ultrasonic frequencies. This emulsification process removes all debris from the surface of the wire down to the molecular level and leaves absolutely zero residues. After each individual wire is processed, we strand it into bundles and then subject the bundles to further treatment. During the second stage of the ultrasonic burn-in, we increase the voltage to a higher level that’s just below the threshold of the conductor. This adjustment in temperature allows us to get a unique “break-in effect” normally associated with cables that have had 30 to 40 hours of signal and/or current run through them.
I purchased Arcadia XLR interconnect and Nova speaker cables. The Arcadia XLRs gave a noticeable improvement over the mid-price XLR cables I had. I did a quick comparison between the Nova, SKW OCC, Blue Jeans, GearIt OFC and Micca speaker cables. I'm keeping the Nova, better bass control and smoother midrange than all the others. They are more expensive than the others but worth it! Speedy shipping and attentive product support.
I have been in this hobby for near 50 years now so when I decided to replace my cables with Zavfino my current cable were not junk.
The fit finish and quality of the Zavfimo is amazing.Packaging is first class and yes I can here an audible improvement. I also want to say that Raymond Li is prompt and good to work with. He is on the ball and ready to help.
These are beautifuly made cables, They sounded a little congested at ffirst but after playing a week or 2 , they really opened up the sound stage. Highly recommended!
These are wonderful sounding speaker cables. Amazing performance and build quality at a very modest price. I've been an audiophile for 50+ years and have owned many cables from budget to extreme and everything in-between. These cables have replaced some very expensive well known and respected cables in my system. Raymond is a pleasure to work with providing top notch service.
