CARDAS AUDIO 15 Gauge RCA Interconnect - with Xhadow copper/silver-plated RCA connectors - 1 metre long (40 inches)
This is a custom interconnect using Cardas Audio 15 gauge pure copper litz wire. One 15 gauge wire for the positive side, and one 15 gauge wire for the negative side. It is 1 metre long (40 inches).
This is a very large gauge/diamater wire for an interconnect. Most interconnects are approximately 22 to 24 gauge, (most Cardas interconnects are 22 gauge), which is 4 to 5 times thinner in gauge/diameter. The positive wire is screwed, with the enclosed screw, to the RCA connector. The negative wire is soldered to the RCA connector using premium Cardas quad-eutectic solder. This is how the Xhadow connector is designed to be terminated.
The entire interconnect is fully shielded to eliminate noise and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). Then, the entire interconnect is covered with a very attractive black braid.
The RCA connectors are the famous, world-class Xhadow RCA connectors (the large diameter type). Just the connectors alone, will cost you $260 Canadian + tax + shipping, a total of $293.80 Canadian + shipping. These connectors are one of the best connectors, if not THE best connector, on the planet. They are made from copper, not the inferior brass or bronze, which sounds harsh and constricted. The copper connector is then silver-plated.
This is what audio reviewer Jeff Day of 6moons.com said about the Xhadow RCA connector, against two other RCA's in a comparison audio review: "Sonically the Xhadows best the Eichmanns and provide a nice overall balance between sonics and musicality. If you're a HiFi buff who wants maximum sonic performance with a good dose of musicality, then the Xhadows would be your choice."
This interconnect sounds like a very expensive Cardas interconnect, on steroids! The bass is fantastic, the sound is super smooth, without any loss of detail. It is very full sounding, powerful, dynamic, cohesive, expansive, with excellent imaging, and soundstaging. This is one of the best sounding interconnects, I have ever heard.

Thank you for looking at my ad.
