Single-conductor in the form of coaxial cable configuration is often the best for analog unbalanced single-ended connection. Despite not having a ground lifted at one end to shut unwanted RFI or EMI, this does not pose a problem if cable length is kept at 2m and shorter with shielding covered by at least 95%.
Gotham GAC-1 Ultra Pro has 7 strands of Linear Crystal Oxygen Free (LCOF) Copper at thickness of 0.2mm as the centre conductor for the signal transmission. They employed a dual layer of bare copper wires shield, 0.1mm in diameter, weaved in opposition direction of each layer, with both layers covering 100% coverage of the entire length of the cable. In the aim of cutting down the noise and interference, Ultra Pro version of Gotham Cable GAC-1 adds another layer of conductive plastic between the conductor itself and the isolation of the conductor, making a sandwich kind of conductive material between the 2 copper shields and the conductor isolation itself.
The innovative approach to Gotham GAC-1 Ultra Pro is a result of extremely quiet cable. As an coaxial cable, the low capacitance between the conductor and shield gives this cable to be excellent choice for Phono usage so that its low input level does not suffer from high frequency roll-off in high capacitance load present in cables. At the same time, it is also perfectly usable in line level connection between various sources to the amplifiers. The superior flex of the cable despite having an OD of 6.3mm is definitely a joy to handle in any tight situation.
Be awed at how clear the sounds will be. Cleanliness and imaging of the sound is in great order for the signature of this cable. Upper midrange is especially the sweet spot, giving female voices the sparkle without fatigue, and adding clarity to male voices with authority. Tightness of the mid-bass separates the lower ends of the sound from the midrange, giving one the sense of layering in most background instruments from the main focus.
Switchcraft RCA connectors (made in USA) are our favourite connectors to be used in our cables for their neutrality and accurate sound. Please note we do not use China-made OEM brands or subsidiary brands of bigger brands (which is still make in China) for RCA connectors. They are not worth the money and performance as they will become the weakest link in the cable.
Upgrade to Australia KLE Innovations Silver Harmony RCA connectors for another superior leap in quality. The silver plating in their contacts improves the resolution and dynamics of the sound further, giving rise to a highly-resolving interconnect cable across the entire frequency without the shrills and sibilance.
Soldered entire with Oyaide SS 4.7% silver content solder.
No directional marking is present in this cable. Either ends can be plugged in.
