At the heart of a Cardas cable is Our Ultra-Pure Cardas Copper.
Mined in the Southwest USA and processed in the Northeast, we employ proprietary drawing and annealing techniques to create the highest quality, purest copper strands. A Single Poly-Nylon coating is applied to prevent oxidation and eliminate crosstalk between strands. The basic building blocks of a Cardas cable have been constant since day one: Our own, Ultra-Pure Copper, produced using our proprietary method. Multi-stranded Litz conductors, with strand size varying in Golden Ratio steps. Top quality dielectric materials and innovative air-tube dielectric suspension techniques. Premium connectors machined from copper & brass, plated with silver, and a flash of rhodium. Terminations performed by skilled craftsmen, using Cardas Quad Eutectic Solder and Cardas Rosin Flux Soldering Paste. These design elements were present in the original Cardas cables, like Quadlink & Hexlink, and former flagships such as Golden Cross & Golden Reference.
Our Clear cable line combines all of this with Matched Propagation Technology, the subject of George’s most recent patent (US Patent 7,674,973), which matches the propagation rate of the conductor to that of the dielectric, eliminating time-smear distortion, improving musical integrity and dynamic range.
Clear Reflection Power
Brings modern Cardas conductor technology to a classic power cable design. Three 11.5 AWG Cardas litz conductors, double shield, and Cardas E-5 connectors make this a phenomenal value.
