For audiophiles who don't need XLR connections, Analysis Plus developed the superb-value Oval One interconnect.
It uses a braided signal conductor in our proprietary hollow oval design along with a braided outer shield mated to a true 75 ohm RCA connector with a low-loss dielectric.
Because the Oval One is handmade using first-rate materials, it will outperform other cables costing many times more.
The 100-percent shield coverage ensures the very low noise floor that's essential to experiencing the entire dynamic range of symphonic music.
The RCA connection is solder-less, using a compression contact technique that spares the dielectric from damage that heat from soldering can cause. This technique also eliminates the poor signal transfer that results from a cold solder joint.
The meticulus care that goes into making the cable adds to the cost, but is worth it for the improved performance.
Shipping is reasonable on the lower priced units and free on 2m or longer lengths.
