Analogue Interconnect RCA

 

Analogue Interconnect RCA is a directional, unshielded interconnect cable made of two twisted solid-core OCC (99.9999% pure copper) AWG26 conductors.

Each conductor is insulated by a thick dark blue cotton. The cotton insulation is the closest in its dielectric properties to air; the Dielectric Constant of Air is 1.0, cotton is 1.3, and Teflon is 2.0. Consequently, the insulating characteristics of cotton are much closer to air than those of Teflon, reducing further capacitance and inductance.

Cotton dielectric also plays an important role as a cushion in reducing unnecessary vibrations to secure real sound. This results in a natural and warm sound perfectly harmonized with the silver conductors. By eliminating the unnecessary vibrations, while securing the original signal, natural cotton dielectric creates vivid and lively music.

The two conductors are twisted together and the cable is then covered with two more layers of blue cotton providing an additional mechanical protection to the conductors.

The interconnect is terminated with WireWorld Gold Tube RCA connectors, based on the superior design of the Silver Tube™ plugs, these elegant connector plugs utilize gold over silver plating of OFC copper to provide double the conductivity of conventional gold-plated brass plugs, resulting in distinct improvements in clarity, smoothness and dynamic range.

 

The sound of the Gekko ATTACK is extremely open and natural, slightly enhancing the 4-6kHz range. It is able to transfer subtle details and ambient information without distortion.
