We offer high-end hand-made audio cables for the budget-conscious connoisseur.
Many of our direct competitors buy an average commercial cable with some fancy name printed on it and then solder a pair of fancy-looking RCA connectors, not at The Vinyl Source.
These cables are entirely hand-made in the UK with high-quality components:
- Professional, no-nonsense RCA connectors made entirely of copper alloy and fully gold plated, with steel made strain relief.
- The 'hot' wire (+) if made from 80 strands/0.04mm OFC Litz wire made in the UK
- The 'cold' wire and shield made from braided tinned-copper MIL-spec RAY -101 shield.
- Solder points are hand-made with high-silver solder.
The Litz wire guarantees the best connectivity with optimisation of the skin-effect.
Ultra-low capacitance : 60pF +- 10%
Inductance @ closed loop: <1.35µH
Inductance @ 20kΩ : <0.13µH
Inductance @ 40kΩ : <0.09µH
Inductance causes impedance to rise with frequency, resulting in attenuation of the very upper-frequency range and sometimes even peaking.
We have available a 0.5m version, longer cables are available on order.
