Cablu audio Van den Hul The MC Silver IT MK II Balanced
It is common to produce High-End equipment with balanced inputs and outputs. With the actual version of our the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Coaxial interlink, it was not possible to meet this requirement. Therefore the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced was designed.
A rather uncommon design with a conductor configuration that is officially named: Tri-Axial.
For all the metals in the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced, we use the world’s highest grade of Matched Crystal (MC) Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) with a very thick mechanically (thus non-chemically) applied purest silver layer.
This adds to the sonic qualities and prevents chemical deterioration, reducing any degeneration of the product.
The centre group, acting as signal-up is made of 19 strands very dense silver coated MC OFC with a diameter of 0.16 mm. each.
Over this centre group 2 layers of Teflon tape are applied.
Then the first braiding, acting as signal return made of 72 x 0.075 mm. very dense silver coated MC OFC strands, follows.
After this comes a second insulation layer with 4 sheets of Teflon.
The outer group functioning as shield is made of 2 layers
-First: a helically overlapping wound silver tape with dimensions 2.5 x 0.05 mm.
-Second: a braiding of 216 strands made of 0.102 mm. very dense silver coated MC OFC.
The outer 7.0 mm. diameter jacket is made of HULLIFLEX ® EHD. This specific insulation material is too costly to be used in all our products.
In practice the sonic results are determined by the quality of the conductors. A lesser factor is the layout of the product.
With superb conductor material, 95 % of the transmission quality is determined. Frequency range is a matter of layout and insulator parameters.
Nevertheless, the frequency range of the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced is 22 GHz. More than enough for a good analog system.
The MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced is available stereo pair packed in luxe wooden box with XLR (balanced) connectors in 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2 and 1.5 m. lengths.
The MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced is furthermore available in any other specified length starting from 60 cm.
