6 WIRE BRAIDED SILVER RCA IC First of all, there is no other cable on the market at this price point that even comes close to these.No hype, No snake oil No voodoo. Pure, simple, outstanding cables with performance approaching the very best and most expensive audio cables on the market, for a fraction of the price. Well below what audiophiles normally expect to pay for superbly engineered and hand crafted components. Best Value of any cables available. All my cables are made by hand by me one at a time, I'm a small operation working at my home, with a small markup (40%) including labor. Unlike large cable manufactures which have a large overhead and typically charge 16 - 20 times cost. My mission is to the finest audio components, of the finest materials, at a reasonable price.
The majority of the high definition cables (typically over $1,000 per pair) are made from silver conductors with Teflon insulation. These expensive materials generally are thought to sound the best. Prices for these premium cables are high for these reasons: The materials ( silver and Teflon) and the labor-intensive processes, both are costly. Then, the manufacturer expends enormous resources on advertising, to maintain their brand." These advertising expenses must be added to the final product cost. Also, cables are not sold directly to end users. Instead, manufacturers sell to stereo dealers who resell the product to end users, after adding their markup. Dealers typically charge twice their cost. They must earn this amount, as profit, in order to survive, because they, too, have necessary high costs- rent, advertising, salaries and sales commissions, business taxes, etc. Let’s analyze the distribution of funds paid by the end user for a pair of 8-foot silver and Teflon speaker cables from a name brand manufacturer:
Cost of Materials $ ..200. Assembly Labor Costs $ ..175. Administrative and Sales Costs $ ..125. Advertising Costs $..225. Manufacturer's Profit $..275. Dealer Mark-Up $1,000.
TOTAL COST TO END USER $2,000

The WIRE: Six-wire braid of MIL spec aerospace SPC 7/32 Strand, silver plated copper cable with teflon insulation, silver being the best conductor of electricity, Teflon insulation is very close to air resulting in very low capacitance which makes the cable suitable for any audio component as it will not contribute to instability,or absorb the signal. Teflon insulation is very thin resulting in a cable that is lightweight and flexible. This cable will not stress the jacks on your components, but is very large gauge. This configuration provides incredible imaging and detail across the entire audio spectrum, deep, tight, powerful bass, sweet transparent midrange smooth and linear high frequency response. This cable provides incredibly low resistance.
Silver Ghost Locking RCA Connectors: • Locking Analog Audio RCA Connector • 5um Direct Silver Plated Contacts • Solid C11000 Copper (OFC) Center Pin • Teflon Insulated Center Pin Locking RCA plugs establish constant, firm contact with RCA jacks via a variable pressure build-up system. By twisting the shell to the left (screwing on), pressure is created on the eight-notched contact grounding ring. This contracts and transfers the built-up pressure to the RCA jacks. Locking RCA plugs are thereby firmly fixed and can no longer be pulled out. Unlike standard RCA connectors, a locking RCA connector will not fatigue or loosen due to age or repeated use. OFC Center Pin The Silver Ghost RCA connector utilizes 101% IACS C11000 High Conductivity Oxygen Free Copper for the center pin which is the highest conductivity copper available for the design. The center pin of the average RCA connector is typically some form of brass which is not nearly as conductive as the copper, silver plated copper or silver conductor cable you'd be connecting to it. Materials like C36000 Brass at 26% IACS or C54400 Phosphor Bronze at 19% IACS are the typical copper alloys used in RCA connector center pins due to their low cost and easy machining.

Silver is the highest conductivity metal at 104% IACS and also has the lowest contact resistance of any metal. With proper handling silver plating will outperform any other connector plating. Reduced Mass Ground Bar: Most single piece body designs of RCA connectors use a grounding bar that is used to attach the shield and or negative contact of the cable by means of soldering. This design is still used but the grounding bar has been reduced in mass to facilitate quicker soldering so cables don't get overheated during assembly.
