The top of the line Clear Interconnect is a vision of perfect geometry and air dielectric techniques. Insights into the basic conductor dielectric relationship have lead to a new frontier of understanding and an associated patent.
"Clear interconnect is the continuation of my pursuit for perfection. Clear is the geometry of our Golden Reference interconnect, but highly refined. Clear is current, state of the art dielectrics and metallurgy. Clear marries the two with an ultra fine, stranded, tubular conductor. Clear is the vision of perfect geometry. Clear has been my most intense project. The metallurgical advancements and metal testing techniques that have evolved from this project are finding applications far beyond anything I ever imagined. Insights into the basic conductor dielectric relationship have lead to a new frontier of understanding and an associated patent, but it is the dramatic silencing of the cables themselves and the completely unimaginable improvement in depth and clarity of sound that was the real reward. Clear will be my most enduring statement." - George Cardas
Cardas uses their own ultra-pure copper in their cables and conductors which features in this product. However, a great cable requires more than just high quality copper. Cardas Audio places great emphasis on using the best dielectric materials in their cables, including PFA, and air (using suspension tubes).
This cable also features golden section stranding. Cardas conductors are constructed of multiple strands of ultra pure copper wire, each with its own enamal coating (making it Litz wire). The copper wire is in various sizes (AWG - this cable has 3 x 25.5 AWG clear conductors), with the strands at the centre of the conductor being the smallest, and strands on subsequent layers going up in size in a Golden Ratio progression.
Two spiral shields & PFA graphite composite feature in this cable. The shield prevents the cable from absorbing and radiating RFI/EMI, which can cause noise and distortion.
Cardas has used the alcryn jacket as the outer jacket material. Alcryn jackets are soft & compliant, with a rubbery feel.
