Flow of Music
“Driade Flow Cable has the kind of delivery that makes one forget about technicalities and makes one enjoy the performances”
“The music flows uniform, the stage has more depth with more space between the instruments. The bass and the mid-bass are more natural and defined and have slam and attack. The total resolution and information is on a higher level and this without any grain, rough edges or harshness.”
We develop superb audio cables by undertaking a unique approach!

Eddy currents and Reflections
For many decades, cable manufacturers are experimenting with different constructions and materials which should have resulted in a more natural, better, attractive and undistorted sound.
Seldom if ever have manufacturers big or small returned to the basics: the ad random in time behaviour of electrons in atoms when magnetism, eddy currents and reflections are induced by a varying current and voltage in any cable. To say it bluntly: there is no research into Quantum mechanics.*
Year in, year out, high tech materials have been used as unique selling points for high-end music reproduction. For example are Beryllium, Silver, Gold, Teflon, Mica, Mylar, Kevlar, etc., etc. used in cable technology. The musical results are not maximized because the basics are forgotten. The main result of all this research and the use of expensive materials are State of the Art sales prices.
Minimize eddy currents and reflections are the key!

Minimize Eddy currents and Reflections
More then 20 years ago, Driade started research in digital designs followed by co-operation and developments which were based on the in-depth behaviour of electrons over the whole frequency bandwidth.
Again, what differentiates the Flow cables from the majority of other cables on the market is not focusing on the “high quality” conductor material, the geometry or the isolation but on researching how electrons actually behave in time within magnetic fields with the aim to minimize eddy currents and reflections as induced by the varying magnetic field by current and voltage.
The results are the superb Driade FLOW audio cables!
*A force on any particles that carry electric charges is exerted, electric charges move, a current flows and a magnetic field is produced. The changing magnetic field, in turn, causes electric current i.e. moving electrons.
Specifications are important in this audio sector. For example, the impedance of a 3 meter length Flow 405 speaker cable assembled with the Copper G connector and included soldering measured at 22° C is at 1 KHz 0.038 Ω, at 10 KHz 0.039 Ω and at 100 KHz 0.040 Ω.
"With its outstanding specifications, Flow can compete with the best of the best."
We have consciously chosen to use pure copper as conductor material and pure copper for grounding. Flow conductors are wrapped in natural silk as covering, air as dielectric and synthetic rubber injected with metal particles as isolation.
Low Mass and Maximum Contact
Necessities in the development of our cables are superior connectors. We are allergic to connectors with high mass because of eddy currents. The connectors, for example our Flow Copper G and the Neutrik Pro, have a minimal conducting mass and a maximum contact surface.
Produced in the Netherlands
Essentially we are against countries with low wages, where labour costs are for example 90 dollar cents an hour and where the workers have no social security, no rights, no health insurance and no pension. This is one of the reasons why we build our products from scratch by hand, in modern, social, democratic countries.

Driade Flow Cable Reviews
Read what high-end audio experts have written about the Flow cables. Everything and more there is to know about the Driade Flow cables. With its outstanding specifications, superb flow, pace, rythm & timing, Driade Flow can compete with the best of the best.
“This cable truly is something else. It has a smooth, free-flowing, organic and highly involving delivery that, quite unusually, does not come along with a lack of focus or a reduction in dynamic slam. This cable can be ever so seductive and alluring but it also roars in a super-bold and expressive fashion just as the music requires.”
