The Ultimate project marks the culmination of our relentless efforts to redefine the High End cable design. Ultimate’s are the best we ever produced and probably the finest audio cables available anywhere today. Designed and carefully handcrafted for the most demanding High End enthusiasts they drive the industry to a previously unimagined level with a number of stunning design breakthroughs.
The major Ultimate’s DNA is the immaculate BRC+ conductors with unsurpassed impurity ratios, especially for the elements with semiconductor properties like tin (Sn) <0.00002%, germanium (Ge) <0.00002%, antimony (Sb) <0.00004%, arsenic (As) <0.00003%, cadmium (Cd) <0.00003%, and oxygen (O) <0.00024%. The BRC+ conductors open the gateway to a fascinating world of the tiniest subtleties and musical emotions that are usually barely perceptible.
The Ultimate cables are the first to be engineered with X-Shield® SE (Super Efficiency) - the latest evolution of our highly acclaimed Multi-Element Shielding System. It is a 4-layer interactive sandwich, where a >60% BRC braid is enclosed by two layers of solid 50 µ rolled BRC foil. Heavy foil provides better EMI suppression at LF, where industrial noise is most intensive. Due to higher metal mass the SE edition offers superior vibration absorption and virtually eliminates electro-dynamic noise generated in the shield. Furthermore, the additional outer layer of >85% silver tinsel braid improves the HF-UHF noise protection. The comprehensive shielding capabilities further expand the attainable dynamic range.
The gleaming Ultimate connectors, made of rhodium plated beryllium copper, complete the meticulous product visualization. Rhodium is chosen for its extreme hardness. The coating serves to protect the beryllium copper surface from deformation and homogeneity disturbance which can cause non-linear or high resistive local zones. Rhodium is noted for its proven neutrality and a more detailed, articulated performance.
Near ideal dynamics along with awesome scale definition maintained throughout the entire frequency range translates to exacting timbre, enormous physicality and fabulous transparency. We cannot name a single competitor at any price which is clearly superior. But the final proof lies in listening, of course. The Ultimate is a priceless investment to a lifetime of audio excitement. Enjoy the music!
