3.5mm outputs are increasingly common with the surge in popularity of ‘dual purpose’ personal audio devices and portable DACs. Many of these devices are also used in home hifi systems, but until recently, there have been few interconnects with 3.5mm connectors which haven’t suffered limited performance compared to normal RCA cables.
Analogue 3.5mm interconnect based on our acclaimed Equator interconnect.
The Equator Metik features four central multi-core conductors made up of two identical pairs of OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) wires within a single-shielded outer cover (rather than separate cables for left & right channels).
The Metik range of solder-free cold-weld jack plugs brings the class-leading continuous signal path performance of our Achromatic and Ultra RCA connectors to portable device interconnects. Featuring precision copper alloy contacts with a PEF dielectric, the Metik plugs provide a high quality, secure termination for connecting mobile devices where sound quality is paramount.
Conventional jack plugs typically suffer degraded signal integrity, principally by using low-grade components, soldered connections and/or screw fixings which distort the cable dielectric (insulation), which produces measurable changes in the cable’s performance. RCA connectors are our low-mass Achromatic phono plugs.
Metik connectors are available in 3.5 & 6.3mm stereo and 2.5mm mono gold-plated options enclosed within a light-weight aluminium alloy cobalt finished sleeve.
