Our computerized environment is full of multiple interferences, induced on analog low-current signal and digital data flow thus deteriorating performance. X-Shield® (Patent RU No.124837U) as a Multi-Element Shielding System is our most advanced EMI protection. It is a 3-layer interactive sandwich, where medium density (25-50%) BRC braid is enclosed by two layers of copper foil. The integral multi-stranded BRC drain wire is tracked along the inner foil layer which reduces the contact noise in the shield structure and improves the overall shielding capability. It also provides constant shield impedance at the lowest levels even upon mechanical deformation as well as uniform shield properties at every point of the cable. X-Shield® ensures exceptional protection from EMI across a wide frequency bandwidth - from ELF to SHF and drastically reduces the negative influence of multiple interferences on the actual audio signal path. Besides efficient noise suppression it further improves vibration damping and serves for additional electrodynamic noise protection.
X-Shield® SE (Super Efficiency, patent RU No.124835U) is the next generation of our Multi-Element Shielding System, used exclusively in our flagship Reference & Ultimate cables. It is a 4-layer interactive sandwich, where a higher density (>60%) BRC braid is enclosed by two layers of solid 50 µ rolled BRC foil. Heavy BRC foil provides superior EMI protection in the extended frequency range especially at LF, where the industrial noise is most intensive. Due to a higher metal mass, better vibration absorption and lower electrodynamic noise is achieved thus extending the attainable dynamic range. The >85% tinsel braid, applied as an additional outer layer steps-up the HF-UHF noise suppression and mechanical damping.
