The cable "THE HIGHLANDS" of the brand Canadian 1877 PHONOallows to connect your reading arm with connector5 Pinson a Phono preamplifier with RCA plugs *.
Resolutely Audiophile in its design, it is especially useful for connecting old record players to our modern equipment, leaving them an additional chance to amaze us by their inimitable analog sound.
Sat the top of the 1877 PHONO line, the HIGHLANDS is distinguished by the use of 4 pure silver conductors with an individual diameter of 0.40mm, insulated by means of a thermoplastic film TefLON-FEP of origin Dupont.
This second material, of French design, is renowned throughout the world for its excellent chemical resistance , hisexceptional electrical properties , and hisincredible thermal resistance (-240 to + 205 ° C). In addition, Teflon® FEP is a flame retardant productproven efficiency, which gives it a ASTM certification D-3418.
This first isolation is backed up by a shielded copper screen , himself enclosed in a Aluminum / Mylar stripvenato improve the immunity of drivers against radio interference(RFI) andelectromagnetic (EMI).
Come next2 individual PVC sheathsreinforce the "physical" protection of drivers while providing flexibility and flexibility to the cable as a whole PET antistatic coating(Polyethylene Terephthalate).
The black PVC outer sheath provides greater resistance to the harshness of the outside world. It is covered with a superb black and green nylon sheath which, with the solid beech partition box , gives the HIGHLANDS an inimitable cachet.
Connectors also show the manufacturer's zeal, and his propensity to always use the best: Thus the 5-pin DIN plug consists of non-magnetic copper plated with fine gold 24k andTeflon insulated , excuse the bit ...
The RCA are not left behind and also benefit from a 24k Gold and Teflon Insulation . Finally, it should be noted that each link is made using welding containing 5% silver.
*NOTE :This cable does not allow to connect a turntable to a conventional line input (CD, TAPE, AUX ...). To operate, it requires an inputon RCA sockets of higher sensitivity, generally accompanied by a ground connection, and leading to a correction filter in accordance with the RIAA standard. This type of input is generally labeled "PHONO" or "TURNTABLE" on integrated preamplifiers and amplifiers.
