World-class Hexlink 5C interconnects are a tough act to follow. But Cardas Cross bests them with an advanced design that offers more detail, cleaner image focus, and greater transparency. As one of our customers put it, Cross is miles ahead of any cable that has come before it. This is an interconnect that simply demands to be heard, and it's one of our bestsellers.
The light and flexible feel of Cardas Cross gives little indication of the complexity that lies beneath its turquoise jacket. The cable is constructed using a symmetrical quad-axial 17.5 awg "Golden Section" constant "Q" Crossfield litz conductor of Pure Copper. The 136 discrete conductors ensure maximum signal transfer, while the double shielding screens out EMI and RFI noise. Insulation is pure teflon combined with air dielectric to keep energy accumulation to the barest minimum. The urethane outer jacket flexes easily.
The Constant "Q" design of Cardas Cross arranges different diameter conductors in ascending order of strand cross-section from the center toward the cable outer circumference. Conductors are sized according to Cardas' proprietary Golden Section Stranding, which earned the company an award for "The Most Significant Contribution of the Advancement of High End Audio in Cable and Accessory Design" from the Academy for the Advancement of High End Audio. In real world terms, the ground-breaking design reduces cable resonance produced by fluctuating current flow for a clearer, more in-focus sonic signature.
