High Definition Swiss-made Audio Cables
T.C. (Time Compensated) Speaker Cables
design goal was to produce a signal path that results in the simultaneous
arrival of all frequencies at the load end of the cable. Our time compensated
cable achieves this with 1,063 strands of various sized individually
insulated Litz conductors arranged in discreet groups and lengths.
Available pre-tinned with 3% silver solder or with Jumbo spade lugs installed. Standard lengths are 7.5', 10', 12', 15' and 20'. Custom lengths and bi-wire sets are available.
The Prisma Dual Interconnect is constructed of the highest quality components. It begins with 174 strands of OFC (99.99% oxygen-free copper) as the center conductor. This is insulated by a polyfoam dielectric, reducing capacitance between the center conductor and the shield, which can restrict high frequency extension. The shield itself is braided copper and has 98% coverage to eliminate RF and magnetic interference. The outer jacket is our highly flexible Soflex® PVC, which is marked with directional arrows. The Prisma Dual Interconnect is highly recommended for use between preamps and power amps and as a CD interconnect cable. Due to its true 72 ohm impedance and low capacitance of 50pf per meter, the Prisma Dual Interconnect also makes a superb video cable.
An interconnect cable is only as good as its connector. Prisma Interconnects are terminated with the Prisma RCA plug, designed in-house by Artech. This is a premium quality connector, machined from solid brass, then 24K gold-plated. There are no cheap crimp connections between the cable ground connection and the barrel, as on so many other "high-end" cables. This could introduce noise as the crimp deteriorates over time. Our connector has a split center pin, Teflon dielectric and a heavy six-segment ground ring. Our connectors slide on snugly, but are not overtight, preventing damage to RCA jacks. The barrel is non-magnetic brass finished in a black satin epoxy. There is a neoprene rubber grip, and color-coding bands for channel identification. The resulting product is a highly musical interconnect which is unmatched in value. Standard lengths are 1/2, 1, 1.5 meters. It is also available in bulk rolls.
The Prisma Balanced Interconnect has similar construction to our Dual Interconnect but is a premium single channel cable with two separate center conductors. The Prisma Balanced Interconnect is ideal for long cable runs with minimal signal loss. When used in the true balanced configuration with XLR connectors, it is immune to RF and hum pick up. It is available by the foot or in bulk rolls.
