This is a very high quality cable with silver plated copper conductors and PTFE insulation. Capacitance is very low at only 64pF per metre and sound quality is excellent - neutral and dynamic without any sonic thumbprint.
The very narrow overall diameter of the cable (2.3mm) helps to keeps RF noise down to an absolute minimum, as does the quality braided screen construction. Military spec. materials and ultra low losses combine to produce a superb interconnect.
Available length: 0.5m / 1m
Copper silver plated connectors
Insulated in teflon - one of the best material
Terminated with 24K gold plated connectors
The River interconnect has been designed as the perfect partner for many of Hi-Fi system. Top quality screening and extremely low capacitance make this cable ideal for use with passive pre-amps, but fortunately for anyone with any other equipment, the performance is suer in any system. The reason is the high-tech construction and materials employed. The central conductor is multi-standee silver plated copper and the braided earth conductors are also silver plated copper, with PTFE uses for the dielectric and FEP used for the outer jacket. The military grade construction achieves a very wide bandwidth with high immunity to radio frequency interference, and - most impressively . a capacitance of just 64pF per meter. This is truly top-grade and music reproduction is neutral and transparent, a good sense of acoustic space is revealed. A superb all round performer.
By the way, you will no doubt notice that River interconnect are very thin compared to most hi-end cables and this baffles many audiophiles. How can they be so good if there're so thin? It would be a more sensibile question to ask if run of the mill hi-end cables are any good, just because they are thick. The truth is that most of the overall thickness of many cables is just down to a thick layer of cheap insulation and doesn't guarantee high sound quality, though id does tend to impress customers in the absence of any real understanding of cable. Rothwell River has an outer jacket of FEP - an high-tech material which is very tough and a superb insulator without the need for excess thickness.
