Constructed from extremely high quality components (Form & Function)

Pricing:
1.0 meter Pairs $99.00
2.0 Meter Pairs $169.00

Prices do not include shipping

Features:

Directional Cables: These Cables are Grounded At The Source, to insure induced noise, does not travel with the music signal
Core Wire:
Ultra-Flex 20AWG x2 OFC with 95% OFC braid filaments to insure least signal attenuation
Triple Insulation:
OFC braiding, cotton core wrapped CPVC to isolate any crosstalk and interference
RCA Connector:
Locking, Rhodium plated machined solid brass bodies, center pin, and collar
Termination:
High Quality Lead-free Solder. Tin alloy with 4% Silver, 0.5% Copper
Exterior:
Military-Grade Super-Flex Ultra-Soft "cloth-like" braiding (nothing like the rigid plastic Nylon braid you usually see on cables)

Details:

Why use directional Interconnects??
In cables where the shield does not carry the signal or ground, the shield is normally only connected to ground at one end. In systems where there are significant differences between ground levels on various components, it may make a difference which way such cables are connected. Typically, the end where the shield is grounded should be at the source of the signal. Often, such cable has arrows on it pointing in the direction of the signal flow.
In Single-Ended interconnects, the signal wire and the ground wire (or shield in the case of coaxial construction) form a complete circuit, so both conductors carry signal currents. The ground wire or shield also serves the purpose of bringing the potential of the two components to the same level.

Why use Rhodium?
Rhodium (pronounced /ˈroʊdiəm/ ROH-dee-əm) is a rare, hard transition metal and a member of the platinum group, that does not normally form an oxide, even when heated. Oxygen is absorbed from the atmosphere at the melting point of rhodium, but on solidification, the oxygen is released. Rhodium has both a higher melting point and lower density than platinum. It is not attacked by acids.


Loop Resistance (Ohm/m) 0.005
Parallel Capacitance (pF/m) 49.1
Loop Inductance (per/m) 0.15
Dissipation Factor (@10Khz) 0.0008
Overall Size (mm) 9.3mm Φ

I don't plan to make the 1/2 meter pairs... (too short)
I do still have 3-4 sets, ( non-directional) but after them, I think I am going to stick with the 1-meter lengths and above.

Gary. If you'd like the short, "non-directional" ones I have... I'll give them to you for $65 per pair.
If not, you'll have to go with the 1-meter "directional" cables...
I have both in stock, and can ship them tomorrow.

What's the differences between the short non-direction & directions models?

Gary, I think this means, IIRC, that the ground (shield) is connected at both ends. In the directional ones, you connect it only at the source end, so your components keep their own grounds and don't "share" the noise from another components ground. It is what most ground "lift" switches do inside the box which allows the box to float its ground separately from other components. It's typically no big deal, as most cables are grounded at both ends. So, if you aren't having trouble now, you won't with directionless cables.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Damn, just bought some WireWorld before I saw this.
This will sound kinda silly, but what about 1/4 inch (headphone type plug) to two RCA? I need at least five.

Hey yeah, good question? I don't have a tab now, but if I started a TAB or you created a tab, how much could I put on my TAB? :lol: :lol: :-k

damn good question as you might have posted that to rip us off.

Still, if you will bring those cables I need to Carverfest, I will throw in a bottle of good Scotch as a bonus.
