STRAIGHT WIRE - DIGITAL AUDIO

COAXIAL DIGITAL CABLES

Coaxial Digital cables have many of the same design requirements
as high quality video cables such as accurate 75 ohm impedance
with little variation over the relevant frequency range and great
shielding to prevent unwanted interference.

Issues of minimizing reflections and phase angle are also important for high quality coaxial digital cables. The use of premium insulation for high velocity of propagation and minimal absorption is mandatory for consistent good performance.

Terminations (both the connectors and methods of attachment to various cables) are critical to obtaining great performance.

RCA - Most common plug for coaxial digital connections. The center pin (positive) extends beyond the flange (shield or negative).

BNC - Twist lock connector with recessed center pin, a true 75 ohm connector. The BNC connector is used extensively for coaxial cables in professional and commercial installations and for select consumer applications.

I-LINK is a cost-effective, good performance 75 OHM digital cable.  Silver plated OFC stranded copper conductors with dual foil/braid shields provide better signal integrity and transmission than standard cables. Expanded foam polyethylene (PE) insulation is employed over conventional non-foamed PE found in standard cables.  A good choice for basic AV receiver based systems.x

AES/EBU DIGITAL CABLE

AES/EBU is the digital transmission format most often employed in high level commercial and studio applications. Two carefully jacketed individual conductor groups are carefully twisted to deliver an accurate 110 ohm impedance signal path. It is critical to have dual shields (foil and braid) to minimize both low and higher frequency interference. The higher impedance (110 vs standard 75 ohm for coaxial) allows for more data transmission, especially over long runs. This format is only found on high grade consumer equipment.

MEGA-LINK is a premium silver digital 75 ohm coaxial cable that offers remarkable performance attributes for discerning audio/video enthusiasts. This cable was designed for premium (level 3) digital data applications. It provides near constant phase angle for highest quality Spdif digital signal transmissions.

MEGA-LINK combines a laboratory grade solid silver (99.99%) center conductor with consistently super - foamed polyethylene insulation to carefully control the impedance of all digital data. Dual silver plated braid and foil shields are carefully constructed to eliminate all forms of interference and maintain consistent 75 ohm impedance.

Available with premium PTFE insulated RCA or BNC terminations.

Clear Jacket over Black Braid with Blue Tracers
6.6mm (.26") diameter

BMG (Balanced Mega Link) Composed of individually insulated strands with 15% silver/85% OFHC copper that are precision insulated with a gas expanded PE and carefully twisted with fillers to maintain the 110 ohm impedance specification. Dual shielded with extremely high braid coverage and then a woven layer of anti-static black fiber before the clear outer protective jacket.  XLR or HD26 termination available.

INFO-LINK digital cable is unsurpassed in its quest for musical perfection. Utilizing laboratory grade solid silver conductors with the highest grade Micro-porous Foam PTFE insulation, no other design approaches Info-Link captivating balance of rich resolution. Special digital phase-angle research and ultra high velocity ofpropagation make this special.

High coverage Dual shields offer complete rejection of unwanted external noise and other distortions. There is no reference digital transmission without Info-Link. Available with premium PTFE insulated RCA or BNC terminations.

Clear Jacket over Black Braid with Green Tracers
6.6mm (.26") diameter

BIN (Balanced Info Link) utilizes the same laboratory grade solid silver conductors with the highest grade of micro-porous Foam PTFE insulation as INF (Info –Link -75 ohm cable). This cable is widely recognized by many as one of the best high end AES/EBU format digital cables available, regardless of price. Dual shielded with extremely high braid coverage and then a woven layer of anti-static black fiber with a red tracer before the clear outer protective jacket.  XLR or HD26 termination available.
