Audio interconnect review by Hans Hilberink

The Audio interconnect review for the Elite audiophile Interconnect 2.2 meter cable is available on the Tannoy monitor gold website. I think it is important to have my cables tested and reviewed by an independent company. This is the only way for a prospective buyer to be assured of the quality of the cables and I hope that you will enjoy reading the review in the same manner as I did.

The Audio Interconnect cables

It has taken me many years of research and trial and error to discover this but as the saying goes “where there is a will there is a way” and my will was to produce an Audio interconnect cable, which was the best value for money. I am very proud of my cables for two reasons.

The first reason in the way in which they are they are built and second is the sound. The Cable that I use for the interconnects is actually the best quality recording studio microphone cable. The cable has a completely flat frequency response and has minimal resistance and capacitance. And at the same time having an excellent bandwidth.

Technical Specification ~

Capacitance: conductor to shield: < 200 pF/meter, ~60 pF/foot. Capacitance: shield L to shield R: < 90 pF/meter, ~25 pF/foot. Resistance: core < 0.07 Ohms/meter. Resistance: shield < 0.08 Ohms/meter. Inductance: shield < 0.02mH /total length. Inductance: core ~ 0.01mH /total length. Frequency response: 0-10MHz flat: perfect. Square wave response: no distortion from 5Hz up to 2MHz. Channel separation L-R: < 135 dB at 0.77 V RMS, 20 Hz-20kHz, for 2.2 M. better than 140 dB for 1M.

The Loudspeaker cables

The Loudspeaker cables are terminated with banana connections and are completely solder free. OFC red copper is used and the outer covering has an additional outer shrink-wrap layer, which provides for the ‘air gap’ cushioning. The cables are terminated with 24K direct gold-plated banana connections supplied from Germany and by using these connections the ultimate quality of sound is retained.

Technical Specification ~

Conductors: O.F.C Red Copper ~ Insulation: Vinyl ~ Outer sheath: Plastic shrink-wrap ~ Cable Diameter: 6.0 mm ~ Conductor size: 2.5 mm2 (13 AWG) ~ Conductor number: 7 strand – each strand containing 32 x 0.125 mm ~ Resistance: 0.02 Ohms/meter ~ Capacitance: 75 pF/meter

  1. I bought one of Pauls interconnect for my laptop and it makes me smile every time I use it, the sound is getting better and better every day.

    Thanks again Paul for these terrific cables
