It is easy to recognize, that I love silver foil conductor. Foil (aka ribbon) as conductor has superior signal transmission properties compared to other conductor geometries.
dynamics, ease, punch, rythm, timbre, holographic soundstage, sovereignty.
Derived from the design of my speaker cable emerged my interconnect that uses foils that are piggybacked. This cable has with 300pF/m a low capacity. That means that you can also use it with weak or passive sources.
I try to NOT use plastic whenever possible. Plastic sounds artificial. In the evolution our ear has "learned" to listen to the sound of natural material! But I don't want to make a dogma out of that and this is why I offer my cables also with the superb WBT nextgen RCA plugs or the KLEI Harmony Plugs.
Only a missing solder joint is a good solder joint! With the wooden RCA plugs the conductor becomes the contact itself. Supreme signal transmission property!
In the Final version you can choose between the superb RCA plugs from WBT nextgen or KLEI Harmony Plugs. With the copper version comes the WBT 0110 Cu nextgen PlasmaProtect or the KLEI Pure Harmony. With the silver version I use the WBT 0110 Ag nextgen or the KLEI Absolute Harmony.
For the Phono cable I use the Furutech FP-Din phono connector.
Copper versus Silver
Copper is the second best conductor on earth. Silver is an even better conductor. However, silver is eavesdropped by the audiophile audience. Some say it has harsh trebles and a thin sound. IMHO this can have two reasons. First a non proper dielectric of the cable can lead to this effect. Secondly small errors in the audio system are transmitted better with silver. Copper is more likely to tolerate these errors. Is your chain ready for silver? Trial and error is the way to go. I will be happy to advise you and feel free to order an identical trial set in copper and silver.
... what? Was my reaction when I realised, that RCA interconnects generally have two ground wires and thus form a ground loop! If you think that if you don't hear a hum everything is fine, you might be wrong. However, my interconnect has only one ground conductor for both channels. Left and right channel are packed piggyback. An even blacker background and even more resolution are the results.
