  • Inner cable is thicker silver plated PCUHD (pure Copper Ultra High Drawability) wires.
  • All connected metal tip, connector pin and 5 pin terminal are Rhodium plated
  • Headshell now has silk weaved OFC litz lead wires

Technical characteristics of PCUHD.

  • This material eliminates inclusions and impurities through a combination of a casting process that does not use any refractory and a post-processing processn that does not pass through hot extrusion and rolling processes.

  • Despite being a 4N (copper purity 99.99%) grade material, it has the characteristics of "high flexibility" and "drawability that can be processed to ultra fine wires".

  • Among the impurities, oxygen that is particularly likely to be mixed could be suppressed to below 5 ppm, which is below the standard for general oxygen-free copper wires. It is unnecessary to use a gas burner in the process by filling the inside of the apparatus with an inert gas.
