Crystal Cable's Special Series CrystalConnect cables are made of high purity OFC copper and Crystal's unique silver-gold blend. Made in Holland, Crystal Cable takes a completely different approach to cable manufacturing: High-tech metallurgy, ingenious construction methods, and state-of-the-art insulation materials pare away everything that does not improve signal transfer. Crystal Cables literally define the “less is more” concept, creating gorgeous-sounding and elegant cables that complement any system.
Crystal Cables are slim, flexible, and astonishingly easy to use. Their sound, however, is anything but dainty, offering up a full-bodied, rich tonal balance with a huge soundstage that starkly contrasts their girth. Crystal uses fairly large conductors, but you’d never guess by looking at its cables. To accomplish this seeming dichotomy, Crystal reduced to the absolute minimum its insulating materials. The central, solid-core conductor is wrapped in low-mass, low-loss Kapton insulation, surrounded by a braided silver shield, and protected by an incredibly thin yet supertough Teflon outer coat. Bulk is eliminated, sound quality is preserved.
Crystal Cables are designed to minimize coloration. They will not exaggerate, enhance, or gloss. They deliver an incredibly fluid and expressive sound—full of nuance, clarity, transparency, and uninhibited emotion. Phrasing, and the shape and flow of musical lines are particular strengths, delivering insight and subtlety with clear, well-separated, and natural soundstage perspectives.
Crystal's conductors are created from pure silver that is impregnated with gold. This proprietary process fills in all the microscopic gaps in the silver conductor, vastly improving signal transfer and giving Crystal Cables their unique sonic signature of incredible speed and delicious warmth.
