Digital IC

Ultra High-End Digital Interconnect
The DI-20 MK II takes advantage of silver in its design through use of our proprietary Silverfuse conductors. The DI-20 MK II is available in true 75 ohm and 110 ohm configurations. If you order with RCA connectors, you will receive the 75 ohm version. If you order with XLR connectors, you will receive the 110 ohm version.

These cables carry digital data only, not analog. You must have digital input and output jacks between your equipment to use this cable.

The conductors are solid core insulated with Teflon; the best insulation available. There are, however, two types of Teflon: PTFE and FEP. FEP is less costly for the cable manufacturer; but is significantly inferior to PTFE. We use PTFE. Have you ever seen any other cable company specify that their Teflon is PTFE and not FEP? There is a message there. We have developed a shielding system that is completely independent of the signal carrying conductors. This ensures that no RF or EMI gets into the signal dead quiet background.

We have also included a heavy-duty outer jacket to protect the interior and to also prevent against sharp bending of the cable. We have found that cables that do not have this additional protection, if bent too sharply, can be susceptible to sustaining small fissures (cracks) in the conductor which, over a period of time; degrade the performance of the cable. This is one of the reasons that used cable gets into the used cable market. Performance has deteriorated and usually the former owner does not realize why. This is especially true of cables that use a mesh cloth as their only outer protection. (Mesh cloth outer coverings are a sign of a hand made cable. see our Cable Hype page concerning the problems with hand made cables).

We use Locking or non locking RCA connectors; your choice. The locking connectors are are snug-fitting thus avoiding accedental fall out of the connection. We, however, prefer the non-locking connectors because they have less bulk to them which makes them sound better. Both of these connectors have bodies that are machined rather than stamped out of sheet metal. An effective anti-static and vibration damping barrier ensures no distortion from these these causes

How does this cable perform? This improved interconnect makes all traces of digital "grunge" disappear. It is designed to be perfectly neutral without emphasizing any portion of the frequency range. Sound stage, transparency, openess and fidelity of timbre are, we believe, unequaled. Our customers agree and tell us this cable is the equal of any cable on the market and exceeds most others in performance. See customer reviews at audioreview.

The cable is also available with XLR balanced and BNC connectors. Please specify if desired.
