IC-300 Signature A State of the Art Analog Interconnect The IC-300 Signature is our newly developed top of the line analog interconnect. It took more than a year of development work to design an interconnect better than our prior top of the line IC-200 MK II which many customers have considered the best interconnect available. This cable excels in a number of areas; it is super fast, has outstanding dynamics, focus, inner detail, and harmonic accuracy – and most important, it is enjoyably musical! These improvements are attributable to new design/construction developments. Specifically: the weaving geometry is done with a planetary cabler. This weaving machine, allows engineers more freedom in designing more complex and more effective weaving geometries. This process also produces a much more accurate and consistent weaving geometry. Accuracy and consistency from foot to foot is essential to replicate and realize the benefits of the theoretical “on paper” design. The process is much more labor intensive, primarily in the set up for the production run, and in monitoring during the run. Consequently, it is more expensive to produce. Our Silverfuse production process continues (see our description of Silverfuse conductor material further below) and is now enhanced with with Deep Emersion Cryogenic Processing. The copper used in this cable is Single Crystal Continuous Cast Copper. It has unique physical and chemical properties, such as considerably longer granules with absolute absence of gaseous impurities such as oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. It is free from impurities (up to 99.99998% pure copper). It is far better than continuous cast Oxygen Free High Conductivity wire (OFHC). The use of Single Crystal Continuous Cast Copper (SCCC)/Silverfuse makes Silverfuse the state-of-the art conductor material. The IC-300 Signature has multiple conductors that are solid core, and individually insulated with a version of Teflon (which we modify to our specifications); resulting in, we believe, the best insulation available. While it is purchased as PTFE Teflon, we are modifying it during the wire manufacturing process. Again, a little more costly. Our modification to the PTFE Teflon insulation allows for substantial reduction of the signal discharge back into the metal conductor. Explanation: All insulations covering a metal wire will absorb a portion of the signal as it flows through the metal wire. That signal will discharge back into the metal wire, although it is delayed by a small fraction of time. This discharge back smears the real time signal that is passing through resulting in small but discernable distortion. We have developed a shielding system that is completely independent of the signal carrying conductors. This ensures that no RF or EMI gets into the signal – dead quiet background. We have also included a heavy-duty outer jacket to protect the interior and to also prevent against sharp bending of the cable. We have found that cables that do not have this additional protection, if bent too sharply, can be susceptible to sustaining small fissures (cracks) in the conductor which, over a period of time, degrade the performance of the cable. This is one of the reasons that used cable gets into the used cable market. Performance has deteriorated and usually the former owner does not realize why. This is especially true of cables that use a mesh cloth as their only outer protection. (Mesh cloth outer coverings are a sign of a hand made cable. (See our Cable Hype page concerning the problems with hand made cables). We use Locking or non-locking RCA or XLR balanced connectors; your choice. The locking connectors are snug-fitting thus avoiding accidental fall out of the connection. Both of these connectors have bodies that are machined rather than stamped out of sheet metal. We recommend choosing our new non-locking RCA that has significantly reduced mass. It is slim and sleek. There is even a saddle in the middle that reduces the amount of mass. We are finding it provides a significant improvement over locking and other bulky plugs. The low mass (of metal) principal we believe was originally created by Eichmann who make the fine Bullet RCA connector. Our president, personally prefers this plug over even our own excellent locking RCA. See customer reviews at audioreview EXPLANATION OF OUR PROPRIETARY SILVERFUSE CONDUCTOR MATERIAL: Silverfuse is a near alloy of silver and copper. The copper used in this process is Single Crystal Continuous Cast Copper. It has unique physical and chemical properties, such as considerably longer granules with absolute absence of gaseous impurities such as oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. It is free from impurities (up to 99.99998% pure copper). It is far better than continuous cast Oxygen Free High Conductivity wire (OFHC). IT IS NOT SILVER PLATED. Silver plating causes a dioding effect when signal is passed through resulting in brightness and distortion. Because silver plating has a bad reputation, some manufacturers try to disguise the fact by calling it silver coated, silver clad or silver/copper hybrid. But they are all silver plated. Our Silverfuse process starts with Single Crystal Continuous Cast Copper wire with a diameter that is slightly larger than the required size. It is then pulled through a trough of molten silver. The wire with a silver deposit is then forced through a compacting process where it is subject to tremendous pressure. The silver and the copper are fused together into a near alloy. The compacting fusion also reduces the wire diameter to the desired size. No dioding subsequently occurs with this process. The result provides for the benefits of silver; which are excellent definition and clarity, with the high purity copper benefits of warmth and mellowness. (Incidentally, pure silver wire also causes brightness)
