Best value balanced interconnect. This is the very latest cable from Perkune audiophile cables and it is a two-meter Balanced interconnect fitted with the very latest Neutrik XLR Hologram connections.
There are many audiophiles who are quite content to use RCA cables for audio but when it comes to High-end audio then there really is a need to have everything fitted with Balanced connections.
So what is the difference between the unbalanced RCA connection and the Balanced XLR connection and what difference does it make to the quality of the sound that is heard from the loudspeakers?
The RCA or unbalanced cable consists of two wires inside the cable. One wire is a signal wire or positive wire and the other is the ground wire. This is very simple and easy to construct and is used for many of the audio applications. The quality of the RCA cable can be just excellent and it all depends on the quality of the cables and the type of RCA connections used to terminate the cable with.
The XLR or Balanced cable consists of three wires inside the cable. One wire is the signal wire or positive wire. The second wire is a signal wire or the negative wire and the third wire is the ground wire. The ground wire is actually also the shield that surrounds the other two wires thereby shielding them from interference.
The length of this new cable is supplied in a two-meter length and this is because a two-meter interconnect sounds much better than a one-meter interconnect. There have been many tests carried out over the years by cable companies with regards to the best length for an Interconnect cable. I am very lucky to actually have been exposed to training with Nordost, which lasted three days and I know what the differences are.
I will say with the two-meter interconnect it will allow you to hear much more of the music the way that it was intended to be heard.
When you enter into the world of Balanced then everything changes. Each component has been made differently to accept the different way of controlling the source signal. If you have decided to run Balanced then you must have everything prepared to connect together in the Balanced configuration because there is just no point in having just one component unbalanced because it just does not sound the same.
The new two-meter interconnect cable is produced by Tasker cables in Italy. The cable is brought to Lithuania and then covered with the shielding protection, which gives the air gap insulation and terminated with Neutrik Hologram XLR connections. The cables are run through the burn-in procedure for three days and then they receive the antistatic treatment. Listening tests are carried out and the cables are packed ready for shipping.
Before shipping, the cable ends are fitted into plastic airtight bags, which are sealed around the connections. The cables are then well packed in the postal shipping boxes so they will reach you in perfect condition.
I am going to add a testimonial from one of my customers in Norway who has just received a pair of Best value balanced interconnect and because he is so impressed he has ordered the new four-meter loudspeaker cable.
This new stuff is amazing!! The XLR is brilliant! And the new power cord did work nicely in my amp!! This has to be the best interconnect! I have ever heard! Everything just seems bigger and better. Even little details shine through! More musical as well! Has Upped the performance of everything in my system and it takes time for me to adjust as well, with the well of new details found. Every track is now even more open and alive. I will leave the cables bedding in for a few hours and I will write again to you soon, but I would like you to send me the new four-meter speaker cables please with a spade connection at the amp end.
