Cable

RD OCC Silver RCA

RCA reference interconnecting audio cable made of pure OCC silver. Handmade. Signal path is soldered with special oxygen free tin with added silver. Free the signal path of your audio components of any obstructions!

Precise RCA Plugs

with 24K gold plated signal parts. The layer of gold ensures perfect surface conductivity, chemical stability and resistance against oxidation. Also, it minimises the skin effect. The central pin is insulated from the outer ring with Teflon. The lamellae of the outer ring are joined to their counterpart by rotating the grey aluminium housing.

OCC Silver Cable

Pure solid OCC silver. Double shielded (Al-Mylar-foil and SPC braid). Twisted signal conductors. The dielectric between the shielding and the signal conductors is made of Teflon which improves frequency linearity.

Thanks to the OCC casting process (Ohno Continuous Cast – 1986), a 99.99998% purity of silver is achievable. The main technological advantage of OCC when it comes to conductors is that the wire is drawn in the direction of its Bravais lattice, similarly to the drawing of silicon. Electrons in OCC silver therefore do not face any obstacles in the conductor, unlike in conductors drawn using other technologies where there are microcracks, impurities, oxygen and products of its oxidation. Using OCC, a wire with the diameter of 50 microns can be drawn for up to 6.5 km keeping the same orientation of the crystal structure in the conductor.

Questions And Answers

Why OCC silver?

Today, OCC is the most perfect technology for drawing conductors. When it comes to the overall quality, the number of inner microdefects and the overall purity, it is superior by three orders to the OFC technology (Oxygen Free Copper) used in audio. OFC copper conductor has about 1 300 changes in its crystal structure per 1 m whereas with the OCC technology, one crystal can be drawn for several kilometers. (More on the OCC technology, PDF)

Put simply, OCC provides the most pure base platform for signal transfer. For the signal path, we use an OCC conductor with the lowest possible number of impurities and with an uniformly oriented crystal structure. The signal path of your high end audio components will therefore be free, not obstructed by defects in the crystal structure and microcracks present in OFC conductors.

What is the skin effect?

With higher frequencies, electrons in a conductor are pushed outwards to its surface. You can read more on our Audio blog.
