Discover Driade Flow Cable
Flow of Music
A unique approach
“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 Flow cable 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!

"With its outstanding specifications, Flow can compete with the best of the best."
Pure Copper Conductors
We have consciously chosen to use pure copper as conductor material and pure copper braided sleeving for shielding and grounding.
Flow conductors are wrapped in natural silk (speaker cables) or Kapton (interlinks and power cords) as covering, air as dielectric and synthetic rubber injected with metal particles as isolation.
Low Mass and Maximum Contact
A necessity in the development of our cables is a new design for our connectors. We are allergic to connectors with high mass because of eddy currents. Our connectors, for example the Flow Copper G and the WBT nextgen, have a minimal conducting mass and a maximum contact surface.

Essentially we are against countries with low wages, where labour costs are for example 50 dollar cents an hour and where the workers have no social security, no rights, no health insurance and no pension. This is the reason why we build our products from scratch and when necessary by hand, in modern, social, democratic countries.
