SCR "Solid Core Ribbon" are very robust, but flexible cables featuring two 99.99% pure certified silver (single core) Teflon insulated flat conductors (0.002" thick and 0.05125" wide), enclosed in a flexible polivinylchloride outer jacket, covered with a braided poliester mesh. The outer diameter of a compete cable is slightly over 1/4 inch. Very low capacitance of SCR cables (18pF per foot plus 7pF per connector) assures super wide bandwidth and allows usage with both passive and active preamplifiers.The shielded version of SCR features a heavy copper outer shield with 100% coverage to assure RF and AMI protection. The shielded version of SCR cables is strictly directional, and there is a little arrow in the outer jacker poining to the correct direction of the misic signal. The outer diameter of the shielded version is slightly over 3/8 inch.
The SCR interconnect cables are available in single-ended RCA-to-RCA, balanced XLR-to-XLR, and "converting" female XLR-to-RCA and RCA-to-XLR male configurations;
The RCA to RCA cable is terminated with genuine Swiss-made Netrik Pro-Fi RCA connectors.The connectors used with the balanced version of these cables are also sourced from Neutrik.
The SCR allows your equipment to demonstrate what it's capable of. Its completely neutral, smooth and open sound proves the successful marriage of theory and top quality components. The only thing that will sound more correct to you is the surprisingly reasonable price... The SCR requires about two days of initial break-in after the installation to show its "sound character" - before that time, a slight upper-midrange "brightness" (typical for pure silver cables) might be heard. For approximately 7 to 10 days after the initial break-in, sound becomes progressively smoother and more natural. In general, in two weeks after the installation, SCR is ready for critical listening. Please note that in order to perform their best, all our analog and digital interconnect cables should be broken-in on the very same system with the very same components used for critical listening! If a cable is disconnected or used with other components, it might be necessary, for the best sound, to start the break in process from the very beginning.. According to our experience, this rule applies to the vest majority of all high-end cables from various manufacturers.
Stealth SCR cables has been compared to many very good commercially available cables (including silver) from major manufacturers, and many listeners prefer the “sound character” of this cable to other more expensive cables. However, it is known that different cables do sound different with different systems. Moreover, choosing cables is a matter a personal preferences and taste. In general, the more advanced and sophisticated equipment is used, the better result can be achieved when using this cable.
Here's are a couple of quotes:
... The easiest way to describe the difference between STEALTH SCR interconnect and the Transparent Ultra is to imagine the difference between great transistor and tube amps. Stealth wire is very detailed, with very solid/deep base and better transparency. The Transparent is more rounded with less detail and looser base. The Transparent has a more tube like midrange with slightly less high end extension... the vast majority of systems would be better off using STEALTH cables...
...STEALTH SCR Silver Ribbon Interconnects were a dramatic improvement over my Audioquest Opal X-3's. I replaced the AQ Opal's between my Classe DAC-1 and my Sonic Frontiers SFL2 preamp and the detail really improved. I heard backgound vocals and instruments that I had never heard before on CD's that I had played over 50 times!.. Kent Keyser email@example.com
In general, the SCRs are very open and dynamic sounding cables. These cables offer tremendous frequency extremes extension and clean, transparent presentation.
