Home Theater Standard & Oxygen Free Heavy Duty Zip Cable - Clear
High-End Audio Transmission, Stereo, Professional Sound, and Studio Requirements. UL, CM, CL2 Listings.  Stranded wire. Oxygen free means that the copper was kept in an oxygen free environment during processing reducing the formation of impurities like iron. Copper with fewer impurities is said by aficionados to contribute to the sound quality of an audio system but that is debatable. However, oxygen free copper is less susceptible to corrosion because it is 99.9% pure copper. Additional benefits of oxygen free copper are improved efficiency, more current to amplifiers, and reduced system strain.
