DEALER AD: Get Rid of the Brass
Silver Teflon RCA
For years I have wanted to get
the Brass out of my cables. Brass is a terrible conductor and adds a real
dullness to the sound. Silver is the best conductor followed by Copper and then
Gold. Brass is way further down the list. The reason that RCA connectors are
made of Brass is ease of manufacture as well as malleability. Conductive ability
is not on the list of positives for this type of construction. ALL Rca
connectors are made of brass and then coated with Silver, Gold, or some exotic
metal to make you think it is a great conductor. The truth is that it is just
Brass that has been coated, no matter what they advertise, Straight Copper,
Silver, etc., would be far too soft and not hold it's shape. Finally, I have
designed what I feel is the finest connector on the market.. PERIOD.
It uses a
solid, pure Teflon base that has been machined to accept a center pin and ground
Teflon is one of the most inert substances on the planet. The Teflon
plug surrounds the RCA connections on your equipment as well as the cable wires
to insure a quiet, interference free sound. Getting rid of the Brass allows the
use of super conductor metals which insure the pristine delivery of your sonic
pleasures. Why make
a cable that is painstakingly designed to deliver all information and then plug up both ends with a poor
conducting Brass connectors? Why use 99.999% purity wires and then use Brass in
the circuit? Brass is really just copper with impurities in it. There is more to a good cable than the metallurgy
of the wire. This design features a Silver center pin and a thin Silver return
line to insure a minimal contact point and the ultimate conduction of signal. The thing
that really impressed me the first time that I heard this design was the
spaciousness and unbelievable detail. Next I noticed the black background. A product
of the solid Teflon plug. These plugs sound as good or better than the WBT Next Gen's
which sell for more than $75 EACH. These plugs blow away and are more reliable than the Eichman
Bullet. These plugs sound better than any Brass plug made! No one else has them.
You will need a heat gun and soldering iron to construct these connectors. Wire
is NOT included. Picture is of a cable with ends installed for reference only.
I know that these connectors do
not look like the big, shinny brass ones. I know there may be some people that
think these connectors will make no difference. Please put them together and
then listen. If you still think they do not make any difference I will gladly
return the full purchase price, even if they have been soldered. No
questions asked. This sale is for a set of FOUR
connectors and all parts needed to finish a great looking set of Rca connectors.
$65/ set of Four

Instructions for Teflon Connector
Strip insulation off of wires as shown.
Solder positive lead to tube, inside if
Cut Nylon lengthwise and slip over outside of positive
Install negative lead to Teflon Plug.
Install heat shrink to hold everything
Shrink outer covering and check all
Extend the outside shrink 1/8" before
heating. It insures the integrity of the connector when you remove the plug.
