ETI Research Link RCA Plug Silver

ETI Research Link RCA Plug Silver

In keeping up with improving their existing line ETI-Research is proud to introduce the Silver LINK RCA Connector. The Silver LINk is the evolution of the famous Silver Bullet that has been recognized by many as the finest RCA Connector you can buy.  It is not so much as an improvement on the actual connector as much as we wanted to improve the EM/RF noise rejection that is the major problem of noise unlike when the Bullet was first designed by Rob Woodland years ago. With the LINK Aluminum Housing, this will help ensure keep the Audio signal clean from these influences.

The Silver LINK RCA Connector is not just another Silver RCA connector as they pride themselves on the material and the design.

The major criteria are to get rid of the mass. Sound can be altered due to the capacitance and added resistance of having more mass than is needed. It is actually cheaper to build big and bulky connectors as machining is kept to a minimum. When you look at the Silver LINK connectors you can see that as much mass has been machined away to keep the audio signal from having to deal with the influences mentioned before. More of the Silver is machined away than what is left making the signal pins. Unlike most of the copies on the market, the Silver LINK is hollow and while it is much more expensive to machine this way, the sound improvement is worth it.

The return pin is unique compared to the copies on the market as it is assembled by hand into the body. This helps to make sure that the Silver LINK can handle years of stress that is applied when connecting to equipment.

The Silver

This is what separates the Silver LINK from many Silver Connectors on the market. First of all the Silver LINK is pure Silver, not plated but made from pure Silver. ETI-Research sources the pure Silver from a foundry in England which custom makes the Silver rods for them to machine. While many offer what is called Silver products at a very reasonable cost, the sourcing of their Silver is important as we are proud that it is a recognized pure Silver not just silver with purity claims.

With an assay report verifying that the Silver 99.99% pure ETI-Research stands by their claim of what we supply. Now to many 99.99% pure may not seem to be that pure as claims of 99.999% and 99.9999% purity products have been “offered” for years. To get this amount of purity is very very hard and very very expensive to get. Most foundries will only supply 99.99% as this is industry standard and when Silver is sold as a commodity it is 99.99%.

If you find an offer of higher purity then ask for the Assay report.

The Bullet plugs have now been discontinued, partly to update the design, and partly as it is becoming un-practical in customs declaration forms to write 'bullet'.

Can receive cables up to 9mm in diameter.

They are sold in packs of 4, all the ends are now black (not red and black) and the channel is now marked by white or black ETI text on the casing.
