ON.HIGH

Copper Cable ON.HIGH

-> 4 conductors, diameter of 0.475 mm
-> Cross section: 0.18 mm², resistance: 94.7 mΩ/m (at 20°C)
-> Purity at least 99.99 mass percent (4N)
-> Direct insulation: Polyesterimid
-> Dielectric: cotton
-> Optimized for defined signal direction
-> Cryo-treated


ON.HIGH

ON.HIGH was developed for the symmetric connection of devices in studio applications. The outer plastic sheath provides for decent robustness in daily use. The insulation primarily consists of cotton. The two inner wires are twisted, the two outer wires spiral around them. With this topology, this cable opens up numerous possibilities for any DIYer. The cable may of course also be used as an rca interconnect and even as a speaker cable.

Price ON.HIGH cable:       EUR 27,50/m      from 6m: EUR 22,50/m     

Price ON.HIGH copperwire: EUR 3,-/m       from 10m: EUR 2,70/m




Innenverkabelung

DIY Internal Wiring Kit

-> for high-quality internal wiring of speakers and amplifiers
-> Cross section per conductor (5 single solidcore wires): 0,9 mm²
-> Includes all necessary material plus tool!
-> Optimized for defined signal direction
-> With step-by-step instructions

For high-quality internal wiring of components. The cable is based on the ON.HIGH copper wire. These solidcore wires are sort of baked like many manufacturers do with their coils. Therefor the cable will be soaked with the c37-varnish during building. You will get a relatively stiff cable and therefor only suitable for internal wiring. But this cable will be very immune to microphonic und resonance effects

Price 1 stereo meter: EUR 100.-      1.5 stereo meters: EUR 130.-      2 stereo meters: EUR 150.-      each additional 0.5 stereo meter: + EUR 20.-

Cryo-treatment

Cryo-Treatment

-> Alters grain structure positively
-> Increases contact-durability
-> Reduces stress in materials

For years, all my wires and foils have been cryo-treated by Cryogenic Treatment Services Ltd in England. As far as I know, this process was developed for motor sports before audio-enthusiasts discovered it. The range of cryo-treated products has now been extended to some more plugs and contacts you can order at no extra charge. The positive changes in the grain structure are not destroyed by solder heat!
