Neotech has long been a leader in producing wire and cable using "single crystal" UP-OCC Copper, developed by Professor Ohno of the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan. UP-OCC copper is at least 99.99998% pure, and has an average crystal size of 125 meters. Compare this to the average crystal size of Oxygen Free Copper, which is .02 meters (3/4"). UP-OCC copper and silver are considered the ultimate in copper and silver conductor technology today. NEI-3004 is a twisted pair, balanced type cable for improved noise rejection. UPOCC copper conductors & Polyethylene insulation produce a very balanced and natural sound. This cable uses Al-Mylar & OFC braided shielding for external shielding. There are 2 conductors, red and blue, each with an outside diameter of 2.42mm and inner wire diameter of 0.85mm.
As used in the Glasshouse Interconnect Cable Kit no. 8
RCA Plug at the pre-amplifier end: screen + blue conductor to RCA earth. Red conductor to RCA signal.
RCA Plug at the amplifier end: blue conductor - RCA earth (screen cut short, not connected). Red conductor to RCA signal.
Outside Diameter: 8.5 mm
Each conductor has (1) 24 awg and (9) 32 awg strands for a total of 20 awg per conductor
Sold by the mono metre, supplied in continuous lengths. So for a 1m stereo interconnect cable you will need 2 metres.
