Kimber Kable - 8PR w/ VariStrand Bulk - Speaker Cable - BASE (Spool)
Kimber Kable - 8PR w/ VariStrand Bulk - Speaker Cable - BASE Series (Spool)
In 1979, Ray Kimber created his first speaker cables, the 4PR and 8PR. These models quickly became an industry favorite and were found in home systems and dealer showrooms around the world. His next speaker cable innovation came years later with the introduction of VariStrand conductors and with it the creation of 4VS and 8VS speaker cables.
As raw materials and manufacturing expenses have risen, the cost to produce PR has increased to be nearly that of our VS speaker cable line. In order to simplify our speaker cable offerings and to mitigate the confusion of having two product lines essentially priced the same, we are combining the two products and creating PR with VariStrand. Combining the PR and VS product lines in this way gives the performance of VS while maintaining the more recognizable name of PR.
In order to help distinguish this new version of PR with VariStrand from the previous version with regular stranding, we are going back to our roots and using the original Red and Black colors that were used when Ray Kimber launched PR back in 1979.
