is a directional, unshielded interconnect cable made of two twisted solid-core OFHC AWG24 conductors made in Britain.
Each conductor is insulated by a thick cotton braid. 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 cotton providing an additional mechanical protection to the conductors.
The interconnect is terminated with a custom connectors, 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 distinctive improvements in clarity, smoothness and dynamic range.
The sound of the Gekko DYNAMIC is open, rich and warm. It is able to transfer subtle details and ambient information with natural warmth.

Analogue Interconnect XLR
Like the RCA cable, the balanced XLR version is also an unshielded interconnect cable, however it is made of three twisted solid-core OFHC (99.99%) AWG24 conductors insulated by red cotton.
Termination is with silver plated pins Switchcraft XLR connectors.
