The SECOND ® (Halogen Free)

After the enormous success of our coaxial interlink The FIRST ®, it was the correct time to also produce a balanced version with Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) conductors. And what would be more logical than to name it: The SECOND ®.
So The SECOND ® was born in the beginning of 1993.

The two centre conductors are made of identical groups of LSC, each containing 12,000 individually insulated fibres.

Besides the undisturbed and very good signal transmission per fibre, the individual insulation also much contributes to the high sound quality: no wild electron crossings between individual conductors subject to all kinds of boundary problems. The electrons move in one direction without side movements.

  • The insulation of both centre conductors is made of polyethylene foam in the colours white and brown.
  • The special treated artificial filler fibres protect The SECOND ® against penetration of humidity; this keeps the capacitance stable and low.
  • The shield is made of 4 layers: two different groups of helically wound dense silver coated OFC strands and 2 LSC saturated layers. This is the best possible shielding available; completely closed against any external signal penetration and with many advantages in the total construction itself.
  • The jacket is made of a nice light brown coloured HULLIFLEX ®, the best external insulation material we can think about.

The SECOND ® is available in ready made lengths with our C - 7.3 RCA type connectors for single-ended applications and with Neutrik XLR connectors for balanced applications. 

There is practically no limitation to the applicable length of The SECOND ®.
We have produced XLR connected The SECOND ® with a length of 25 meters as microphone cable for professional recording applications.

Equally, The SECOND ® renders an outstanding resolution and neutrality when used as an electrical instrument cable.
Also as a balanced (AES-EBU) digital cable The SECOND ® works perfect.

We do not sell The SECOND ® on reels because de-insulating and connecting the 24,000 fibres really needs expertise.
