Digital IC

A State of the Art Digital Interconnect

The DI-30 Signature is our newly developed top of the line digital interconnect.

It is available in true 75 ohm and 110 ohm configurations. To order the 75 ohm version, choose RCA connectors. To order the 110 ohm version, choose XLR connectors. These cables carry digital data only, not analog. You must have digital input and output jacks between your equipment to use this cable.

It takes advantage of silver in its design through use of our proprietary Silverfuse conductors. The DI-30 Signature has multiple conductors that are solid core, and individually insulated with a version of Teflon (which we modify to our specifications); resulting in the best insulation available.

This cable excels in a number of areas; most prevalent are the outstanding dynamics, focus, inner detail, and harmonic accuracy – and most important, it is enjoyably musical! These improvements are attributable to new design/construction developments. Specifically: the weaving geometry is done with a planetary cabler. This weaving machine, which allows engineers more freedom in designing more complex and more effective weaving geometries, also produces a much more accurate and consistent weaving geometry. Accuracy and consistency from foot to foot is essential to replicate and realize the benefits of the theoretical “on paper” design. The process is much more labor intensive, primarily in the set up for the production run, and in monitoring during the run. Consequently, it is more expensive to produce.

Additionally, we use PTFE Teflon in most all of our cables; however, the insulation we are using for this new cable, while it is purchased as PTFE Teflon, we are modifying it during the wire manufacturing process. Again, a little more costly. Our modification to the PTFE Teflon insulation allows for substantial reduction of the signal discharge back into the metal conductor. Explanation: All insulations covering a metal wire will absorb a portion of the signal as it flows through the metal wire. That signal will discharge back into the metal wire, although it is delayed by a small fraction of time. This discharge back smears the real time signal that is passing through resulting in small but discernable distortion.

We continue to use our proprietary Silverfuse alloy conductor material. (see as description of Silverfuse further below).

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.

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