Audio Reference III (Pair)
Type: Hyper-Balanced Interconnects
Connectors: FP-106(R) RCA connector.
• Double-shielded α (Alpha)-OCC Conductors eliminate radiated noise
• Formula GC-303 Antimagnetic EMI-Absorbent Modules surround each cable
• High performance beautifully engineered rhodium plated RCA [FP-106 (R)]
• Center filament pin [FP-106 (R)] a high-contact work of engineering art composed of nonmagnetic rhodium-plated phosphor bronze with Teflon dielectric
• RCA connector backbone composed of nonmagnetic rhodium-plated eutectic cast brass with beautifully-finished nonmagnetic brass outer locking shell.
• Shield 1 0.12 mm α (Alpha) conductor wire braid
• Shield 2 special EMI-absorbent Formula GC-303 Modules for superior noise isolation
• Insulated with air-foamed HDPE reducing capacitance and damping vibration
• Results in greater resolution, clarity, powerful dynamics, and an ultra-quiet soundstage in which music develops more fully without artificial upper-frequency “presence region” glare.
• GC-303 allows a deeper, tighter bass to form a solid foundation for the rest of the frequency range, better defining the original recording’s venue. Natural, unforced detail reveals nuance and energy for an engaging musical experience.
