By working with a triple bespoke copper catalyst, the Eletech team has succeeded in developing a flagship-level copper upgrade cable. To develop copper upgrade cable, which is characterized by exquisite sonar properties and technical excellence.
With the experience from "Aeneid" and "Socrates" as well as special configurations such as the "Tyrian", Eletech has used the concentrated expertise to to develop an entirely new "Ode To Laura", constructed from the ground up, introducing new geometries and shielding methods not previously employed.
"Ode To Laura" breaks through Eletech norms and replaces Eletech's cable philosophy, taking it to a whole new level of performance with the newly developed 9-core geometry system and the first 22AWG configuration offered in Eletech's repertoire.
Housed in Eletech's flagship "Parnassus", the "Ode To Laura" features a fully loaded, triple-tailored copper configuration in 22AWG geometry. It contains more than twice the material of a regular 24AWG GPS configuration and is essentially an 8-wire configuration culminating in a 4-wire setup.
Eletech's outstanding achievement
Since Eletech's debut in 2019, the veteran ateliers have had widespread
success with their unorthodox entry-level Virtues Series cables, high-performance reference cables the School Of Athens Series, and class-leading Parnassus Series.
Eletech's "Socrates", "Iliad" and "Aeneid" still enchant the hearts of the audiophile community years after their release and are still among the most popular products in the Eletech product range.
After the release of the Aeneid, Eletech's R&D team wanted to condense everything they developed into the essence of a "Copper Catalyst". A catalyst that is undeniably a perfect champion for the "Parnassus Series" in the form of a copper. Thus was born "Project L" which evolved into a perfect rendition - "Ode to Laura".
Background & Inspiration
Eletech "Ode To Laura" is inspired by one of the greats of the Renaissance - "Petrarca" and and his Carzoniere, a collection of poems about a woman named Laura whom the poet loves all his life, but not with her can be together.
The "Ode to Laura" project began innocently with the development of one of a variety of "copper catalysts" that can affect the bandwidth of frequencies. It was further selected 3 main catalysts that have unparalleled potential. These material catalysts were first unveiled at Canjam in Singapore and then on a head-fi tour to gather feedback and opinions from the audiophile community on the direction Eletech should go - a project the community is affectionately committed to as "Project L".
"Project L" quickly grew in complexity and the immediate task was to
adapt the custom copper catalysts and develop them into one of the "big ones". Using all available resources and experience, Eletech successfully developed the "Ode to Laura", a flagship performance coppers that is both musical, organic and lush, as well as conveying an incredible sense of space, airiness and stereo imaging.
Design & Form Development
The aesthetic form development of the "Ode To Laura" is characterized by "Regalia", "Laurels", "Vintage" and "Intricacy".Eletech specifically designed this flagship to offer a high level of detail while maintaining a subtle vintage tone
The Y-Split is an intricately designed, two-layer step design that enhances the tactile experience while maintaining a 3D-like appearance with coherent imagery. The outer ring features Renaissance-style architecture, while the inner base features convex projections in the form of emblems, completing the design picture. The outer ring has been plated with aged copper and finely sandblasted for a vintage aged effect.
The connector has also been refreshed to perfectly match the theme of the new hardware. Featuring "Laurel's" permutation in staggered alternating configuration. The "Ode to Laura" offers a complete and luxurious product experience in line with the entire "Parnassus" series.
Technology & Equipment
The "Ode To Laura" exhibits a high level of musicality, complete with a great
soundscape, while delivering extreme technical characteristics through the blend of triple Eletech Bespoke OCC Copper in an Eletech's first 22AWG configuration. Within the geometry, sporting a golden ratio dispersion allows Eletech to ultra-maximize the available space, filling the materials to the brim while significantly reducing the skin effect.
The core structure of "Ode To Laura" consists of a 9-core geometry newly developed by Eletech, which provides additional stability and improves the expansion of the audible frequencies. Each individual core is equipped with 3 uniquely developed types of copper with different properties (α,β,γ).
The "α" type copper exudes a very thick, lush, traditional hi-fi copper signature with a buttery smooth signature, the "β" type copper offers an extreme level of technique and airiness, while the "γ" -Type offers an organic tone and balances the extremes.
These materials are stranded in 4 different strand sizes to target a segment of the frequency response with the intended signature. "Ode To Laura" will feature the same OFC shielding that was hugely successful on "Inferno" and "Tyrian," allowing the background to be quieter and details to be heard more clearly.
Eletech's innovative approach to both cable design and components has been very well received by the audiophile community and the "Ode To Laura" is no exception. Based on the past experience of Eletech in product development, Eletech has continued to improve the various aspects of the design and strives to create a unique and luxurious "Eletech experience" with the "Ode to Laura".
