Audio Cable - XLR Gold 5m / A cost effective interconnect cable for those who want the best possible quality at a lower price
A well shielded and flexible interconnect cable. The cable has gold plated connectors and a oxygen free copper core.
We put extra attention to the shielding, a very important factor to minimize distorsion and interference.
* Double shielding
* Core made from oxygen free copper
* Gold plated connectors
* Mechanically stable and robust but still flexible
* 75 ohm impedance
To minimize the effects of outer interference balanced signaltransfer is often used. It simply means that the information is transferred as two mirror halves, and the difference between them is the signal itself instead of the more common unbalanced way where a single conductor carries the signal in respect to the ground. This way, outer interference that "hit" both leads at the same time have no effect as the difference between the conductors is still the same. We gain nothing from a purely sonic point of view - a very common misunderstanding, but we do gain signal/noise ratio.
The best cable is the one that doesn´t sound at all
Our standpoint is that the best cable is the one that doesn´t sound at all, or in other words does not affect the signal in any way. It´s no secret that the sonic influence of cables is a very frequently debated subject within the High End audience. Many manufacturers promise you the world if you just buy their cables. At the same time, it´s often difficult or even impossible to measure any difference in performance between different cables. We choose not to get involved in the subjective discussion about what cables sound good and so on. But we are happy to explain in technical terms the importance of good quality cables.
Keeping external interference away from the signal path is just as important as measures to ensure a distorsion free and clean signal itself. A well shielded cable helps achieve this. Blue Line has a double shielding to effectively stop external magnetic fields and interference from entering the signal path.
A cable with a balanced ratio between capacitance and inductance shows a characteristic impedance, or a constant AC resistance. In the same way a TV cable transfers the signal long distances, can an audio cable transfer sound in a very precise manner, regardless of frequency.
A "regular" cable quickly suffers from losses due to inductance or capacitance as frequency increases. The results are usually "ringing" near resonance frequencies, time displacements that are frequency dependant, and other forms of distorsion affecting the original signal.
This can show up as diffuse treble or uneven frequency response. To avoid this, our cables have a well defigned characteristic impedance, constant throughout the frequency range.
We put great effort into the mechanical quality of our cables. Good connectors and rigid jackets minimize the risk of poor contact and other problems. Besides, the cables will last for a long time, even in tough environments.
