Phono cartridge output is vanishingly small and easily polluted by RFI and EMI. Every element of signal transfer must be perfectly engineered to avoid distortion that robs music of life. If you’re going to the trouble of playing vinyl why swamp the low-level signal in a veritable soup of noisy distortion right at its source!
All enthusiasts are looking for the same qualities: Verisimilitude to the original event, a sense of engagement promoting suspension of disbelief, an immersion in audio and video experience. To engage without effort requires meticulous preparation of the entire playback chain especially including cables and most importantly at the signal source.
The Ag-16 Phono Cable achieves its remarkably quiet soundstage and transparent presentation with silver-plated α OCC conductors, three-layer shielding and external ground wire, even a specially engineered cable clamp to improve grip and avoid any potential distortion.
1.1 meter phono cable available in three versions:
Ag-16 (straight DIN)
Ag-16-L (angled DIN)
Ag-16-R4 (RCA connectors)
Ag-16-XLR (DIN to XLR connectors) – by custom order
