IC-100 Mark II
High-End Audio Interconnect
The IC-100 MARK II is similar to the IC-200 Mark II. However, it has fewer internal wires so its performance is not quite as good as the IC-200 Mark II. It too, takes advantage of silver in its design through use of our proprietary Silverfuse conductors. The conductors are also solid core insulated with a version of Teflon (modified to our specifications); resulting in the best insulation available.
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 RCA connectors. These connectors have bodies that are machined rather than stamped out of sheet metal. They are Snug-fitting preventing accidental falling out and provide the best possible electrical connection. How does this cable perform? It is designed to be perfectly neutral without emphasizing any portion of the frequency range. It has a wide and deep sound stage and excels in transparency and fidelity of timbre. Our customers tell us this cable is the equal of any cable on the market regardless of price.
We recommend choosing our new non-locking RCA that has significantly reduced mass. It is slim and sleek. There is even a saddle in the middle that reduces the amount of mass. We are finding it provides a significant improvement over locking and other bulky plugs. The low mass (of metal) principal we believe was originally created by Eichmann who make the fine Bullet RCA connector. Our president, personally prefers this plug over even our own excellent locking plug.
