The BAY C5 HYBRID
(Halogen Free)

The BAY C5 HYBRID (Halogen Free)

Due to the large success of our The PATCHBAY B5 in its use as a general purpose audio interconnect, we have introduced The BAY C5 HYBRID: The coaxial (unbalanced) HYBRID version of our balanced The PATCHBAY B5.

Low priced and exhibiting an excellent price-to-performance ratio The BAY C5 HYBRID has been specially designed for general purpose and car hi-fi interlink applications.
The BAY C5 HYBRID however is also perfectly suited for internal (pre)amplifier and mixing console wiring applications and as an unbalanced patchbay interconnect.

The design combination of a superior transmission quality, a low conductor-conductor capacitance, a very high screening factor together with a high mechanical flexibility and a long durability, though not being easy to manage, successfully has been achieved.


D - 102 V Special
(Halogen Free)

D - 102 V Special (Halogen Free)

Our successful D - 102 series of screened twin core special quality audio interconnects exists since 1982 and after many upgrades its current members are the D - 102 III HYBRID and the D - 102 V Special.
The D - 102 V Special is a version in which extra heavy measures have been taken to protect the cable’s excellent transmission qualities against degradation over time in harsh environments;
Environmental / air-borne chemical agents, which after years of permanent exposure would be able to attack the cable’s high purity Matched Crystal OFC strands through their dense defensive Silver coating are blocked by three barriers:


The INTEGRATION HYBRID
(Halogen Free)

the integration hybrid (halogen free)

Being the first member of our new state of the art FUSION SERIES of audio interconnects and loudspeaker cables The INTEGRATION HYBRID is a triple shielded quadruple core audio interconnect suitable for both balanced and unbalanced use.

Having integrated all our experience, knowledge and technology into this first “FUSION SERIES” cable, it seemed quite logical to call it: “The INTEGRATION HYBRID”.

As with all products under our FUSION SERIES, in The INTEGRATION HYBRID our new developed highly advanced FUSION conductor material is combined together with our well proven Linear Structured Carbon ® technology


The SOURCE HYBRID
(Halogen Free)

the source hybrid (hagogen free)

It is always a challenge to design a product where the quality and the price are very opposite in the positive sense.
This is the case with our The SOURCE HYBRID coaxial interconnect; a cable with all the advanced technology on board to make the product very successful.
The middle orange jacket is made of our HULLIFLEX ® 3 with the type printing on each 25 cm. (10") to make cutting of specific lengths easy. The external diameter is 7.0 mm.
The shielding is made of 216 dense and very pure silver coated Matched Crystal (MC) OFC copper strands with underneath a Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) saturated foil; this to further close The SOURCE HYBRID against spurious HF-signals and to dramatically improve the signal quality.


The WELL HYBRID
(Halogen Free)

the well hibrid (halogen free)


The WELL HYBRID in more detail:

The WELL HYBRID’s design is based on our successful The SOURCE HYBRID.
By adding an extra screen, the cable’s immunity against external radio frequency and electromagnetic interference in our nowadays increasingly noise polluted environment has been further improved. This means an even lower and cleaner noise floor, even when using larger lengths; Definition and detail more clearly stand out.
The pearl white jacket is made of our HULLIFLEX ® 4 with the type printing on each 25 cm. (10") to make cutting of specific lengths easy. The external diameter is 8.0 mm.
The shielding is made of two braided screens, each containing 192 dense and very pure silver coated Matched Crystal (MC) OFC copper strands.
In between both braided screens is a Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) saturated foil; this to further close The WELL HYBRID against spurious HF-signals and to dramatically improve the signal quality.


D - 310 Mk II
(Halogen Free)
D - 310 Mk II (halogen free)
The massive D - 310 Mk II’s design is primarily based upon our former D - 300 S; yet further improvements like a lower capacitance, better propagation properties and a higher flexibility have been implemented.

The D - 310 Mk II’s outer jacket is made of tan-metallic coloured HULLIFLEX ® with an external diameter of 11 mm.
This coaxial cable’s core consists of 19 Matched Crystal (MC) OFC strands with a very dense and very pure silver coating.
The resistance of the core is: 1.10 Ohm/100 meter.
The resistance of the shielding is: 0.20 Ohm/100 meter.
Latter very low value prevents hum problems in complex grounding situations.
The inner 7.25 mm. diameter insulation is made of polyethylene foam with Nitrogen as filler.
The result is a very low capacitance of 56 pF/meter.
The Nitrogen also provides a very good protection against oxidation.
The outer shielding is braided in 2 layers with a total of 432 Matched Crystal (MC) OFC wires with a dense and very pure silver coating.


MC - GOLD HYBRID
(Halogen Free)

MC - GOLD HYBRID (Halogen Free)

The MC - GOLD HYBRID is a flexible, gold coloured, balanced interconnect with an extremely high shielding factor against spurious signals from external signal sources.
The two internal conductors are constructed of 7 strands made of a very high grade Matched Crystal (MC) OFC, densely coated with a thick layer of very pure silver and on the outside an extra layer of real 24 carat Gold.
At the MC - GOLD’s first introduction in 1985, our company was the world’s first with a 24 carat golden conductor.

In the MC - GOLD HYBRID we apply our HYBRID technology: over each centre conductor an extra Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) staturated layer is applied.
This extra layer of LSC again improves the quality of the signal transmission by performing electrical bridging on micro-scale and by converting the external magnetic field close to the conductors into an electrical signal again.

The BRIDGE
(Halogen Free)
Loudspeaker Cables: The BRIDGE (Halogen Free)
The BRIDGE: A solid link between your amp and speakers!
Being the result of our aim to make the best twin-lead loudspeaker cable for the lowest possible price, The BRIDGE is a slim and highly flexible 2x(1.97 mm² / ~AWG 14) quality cable, suitable for all amplifier to speaker connections.

· Heavy silver coated multistrand OFC conductors
Both very flexible signal conductors consist of 98 strands of high purity dense silver coated - high purity Matched Crystal Oxygen Free Copper (OFC). This high quality composition maintains signal integrity and provides maximum durability. Signal quality that lasts!

· Minimal signal loss
The BRIDGE’s low loop resistance of 0.018 Ohm/m (and its low parallel capacitance of 35 pF/m) allows your amplifier to maintain full control over your speaker drivers’ movements. Solid and tight bass, as well as natural, open and nonfatiguing mids and highs are yours to enjoy!

· High-grade connectors
Also the quality of the connectors makes a considerable contribution to a cable’s overall performance. The BRIDGE comes fit as desired with either our spade/banana interchangeable Bus type Universal Speaker Connectors or our spade or banana DIY Screw-On Speaker Connectors. Both connector types are of the same high quality as found with our up-range speaker cables: Being non-magnetic and heavy 24 carat gold plated, they provide a perfect and durable connection.

· Excellent protection and durability
Last but not least, The BRIDGE’s heavy silver coated conductors, as well as its flexible, rugged and hardwearing HULLIFLEX ® 4 jacket provide an optimal protection against chemical (corrosive) attack from the outside world and ensure a very long lifespan.


The ROYAL JADE HYBRID
(Halogen Free)
The ROYAL JADE HYBRID (Halogen Free)
The precious Jade gemstone comes in many qualities, loudspeaker cables are much alike in that aspect. Only highest quality Jade stone is allowed to carry the name “Royal Jade”.
At the end of 1998, we were proud to add a new member to our special quality Hybrid loudspeaker cable range and aptly have named this twin-lead “The ROYAL JADE HYBRID”.
This not just because of its green colour, but mostly because of its noble musical qualities and long lasting durability.

A gem in all aspects...
The 2 conductors each are made of 126 strands of high purity Matched Crystal OFC with a very dense pure silver coating.
Each conductor exhibits a cross-section area of 2.53 mm², closely approaching AWG 13.
Covering the two conductors you find an extra Linear Structured Carbon ® saturated layer to improve the sonic performance and to transform the radiated magnetic field into an audio-signal again.
The resistance per lead is: 0.68 Ohm/100 meter.
The capacitance between the 2 leads is: 37 pF/meter.
The external dimensions are: 16.5 mm. wide and 6.0 mm. thick.

Sonically this cable is a great product with a very balanced overall quality.
There is no harshness and the spatial reproduction is superior


D - 352 HYBRID
(Halogen Free)
D - 352 HYBRID (Halogen Free)
This twin lead brown metallic coloured speaker cable is designed to provide a very high transfer quality at a moderate price.
Each lead is made of 296 x 0.15 mm. Matched Crystal (MC) high purity OFC strands with a dense and very pure silver coating.

Covering the two conductors an extra layer saturated with Linear Structured Carbon ® is applied to improve the sonic performance and to transform the radiated magnetic field into an audio signal again.
The cable jacket is made of our HULLIFLEX ® 3, a very flexible and mechanically superb insulation material.

The plus and minus leads are different in jacket-shape with printing in the flat middle section. Both properties are easy polarity-finders.
Type printing at 25 cm. (10") distance makes cutting of specified lengths very easy.

Our 4.0 mm. Ø cable entrance diameter Bus type Universal Speaker Connectors and our DIY Screw-On Speaker Connectors are excellently suited for the D - 352 HYBRID.



The REVOLUTION HYBRID
(Halogen Free)
The REVOLUTION HYBRID
During the great success of The REVELATION HYBRID, there was the question if it was possible to produce a lower priced version.
This was the moment The REVOLUTION HYBRID was born: a single-lead loudspeaker cable with the same sonic properties but smaller in size.

The general construction is the same as with The REVELATION HYBRID:
First an inner group with 308 x 0.14 mm. very high grade Matched Crystal (MC) OFC strands with a dense coating of very pure silver. The inner group exhibits a total metal cross-section area of 4.74 mm².
Covering this core is a Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) saturated layer which bridges minor defects and captures and transforms the radiated magnetic field of the inner conductor to an audio signal again.
The helically wound outer conductor structure employs the same silver coated MC OFC metal quality as found in the core and consists of 16 separate conductors, each with 19 strands of 0.11 mm. This produces a metal cross-section area of 2.89 mm². These 16 outer conductors are individually insulated and are standardly wired in parallel with the centre conductor, giving a single lead cable. Their being individually insulated however also allows them to be wired together as a separate signal return. (Versions wired as such and fit with matching connectors are available either as twin-lead speaker cable or as single-ended interconnect on special customer demand).
The total metal cross-section area of The REVOLUTION HYBRID is 7.63 mm² giving the cable its very low resistance of 0.226 Ohm/100 m.
The outer jacket is made of red HULLIFLEX ® 3, a mechanically superb insulation material.



The REVELATION HYBRID
(Halogen Free)
The REVELATION HYBRID
Our massive single-lead loudspeaker cable The REVELATION HYBRID bridges the gap between the past where all our conductors were made of pure metals in all kind of configurations and the new era where other conductor materials are involved. The first product of this new “hybrid” generation is The REVELATION HYBRID.

The main idea behind this concept is that a pure metal conductor is a wonderful collection and compilation of crystals where the inter-crystal relations are not perfectly arranged.
In our The REVELATION HYBRID the bridging factor between these crystals is the thick conductive Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) saturated layer covering the centre conductor.
Due to the special properties of this LSC saturated coating, the sonic improvements are remarkable. Especially the very fine details of a recording and the spatial information are transmitted without the slightest harshness.

All metal strands used in The REVELATION HYBRID are of a very high grade Matched Crystal (MC) OFC with a thick and very dense coating of pure silver.
The centre conductor is made of 294 single strands each 0.15 mm. in diameter exhibiting a total cross-section area of 5.20 mm² and a low resistance of 0.332 Ohm/100 meter.
The LSC saturated layer covering the centre group is extruded under very high pressure to ensure a good bridging contact.
The total diameter of this combined group is 7.50 mm.
Around this core 16 helically wound conductors are applied. These 16 outer conductors are individually insulated and are standardly wired in parallel with the centre conductor, giving a single lead cable. Their being individually insulated however also allows them to be wired together as a separate signal return. (Versions wired as such and fit with matching connectors are available either as twin-lead speaker cable or as single-ended interconnect on special customer demand).
Each of these 16 conductors consists of 42 strands of 0.15 mm. diameter. These 16 conductors exhibit a combined cross-section area of 11.88 mm² and a combined resistance of just 0.145 Ohm/100 meter.
The core combined with these 16 conductors in parallel give The REVELATION HYBRID its very low resistance of 1 Ohm/km.
The outer insulation jacket is made of red HULLIFLEX ® 3, a mechanically superb insulation material.
The external diameter is 12.5 mm
