IC-200 Mark II
Ultra High-End Audio Interconnect
The IC-200 MARK II takes advantage of silver in its design through use of our proprietary Silverfuse conductors. The IC-200 MK II has multiple conductors that are solid core and individually insulated with Teflon; 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 to prevent accidental falling out and provide the best possible electrical connection. There are some similarities to the IC-100 MK II such as use of our Silverfuse conductors insulated with, PTFE Teflon, Silverfuse shields and the same high quality locking connectors); however, the most significant difference is that the IC-200 MARK II has multiple smaller gauge conductors for improved handling of skin effect.
How does the IC-200 MK II perform? It is designed to be perfectly neutral without emphasizing any portion of the frequency range. Sound stage, transparency, openness and fidelity of timbre are, we believe, unequaled by our competition. Our customers agree and tell us this cable is the equal of any cable on the market and exceeds most others in performance regardless of price. See customer reviews at audioreview Please note that a version of this cable is also available for turn tables. See our model TA-200 MK II.
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.
