The Cusat50 is the signal cable used by Graham Slee in the research and development listening tests of his phono stage and headphone amplifier products. But although they obviously work well with his products they can be used between any components.
These interconnects are superbly made, and feature RCA plugs where the external cover can be rotated to clamp onto the socket securely. The bottom plug in the photo shows how the cover has moved forward to force the outer sections of the plug inwards.

The Cusat50 is the signal cable we use in the research and development listening tests of our phono stage and headphone amplifier products. So if these products work as well as the reviews make out, just think how much better they'll sound using these Interconnects?
The copper losses are extremely small which supports bass "hold-up" and therefore they fully allow the essential foundation of the music to be transmitted with commanding authority - far greater than thin wire or thin foil Interconnects.
Memory effect causes blurring and confusion, and is caused by dielectric absorption. The "honeycomb" construction using polyethylene as the dielectric over a thick single core polished conductor reduces the "drag" due to micro-current flow in adjacent insulation taking the dielectric absorption as low as an insulated cable can go. Micro-current flow in insulation is a common characteristic that all cables have to some degree, and if you don't believe that, please research the national grid and why power cables don't overheat.
Part one of the screen is partial braiding around the outside of the polyethylene dielectric which makes minimal contact, further reducing dielectric absorption. Part two of the screen is an overlapping copper foil which reinforces the braided screen conductivity to equal the core. Together, they effectively screen out virtually all sources of interference.
Lay-up is in the direction the wire was drawn into its associated strands indicated by a chevron decal as well as the direction of any visible cable print. We don't yet have an answer as to why a cable used in one direction should sound any different to the opposite direction (diode arguments don't hold water with alternating currents), but it may be found that these cables sound better connected backwards when used with phase inverting stages.
The capacitance is just 50pf per metre making the 1.5 and 2 metre types a viable proposition for turntable tone-arm Interconnects. The minimal loading presented to outputs such as the Era Gold and Reflex allow an explosion of musicality, and lead to greater definition and integration with our Gram Amp range.
