What exactly is this? At Japan's Chiba Institute of Technology a special casting process was developed by Prof. Ohno, which enables a cable extrusion resulting in a very long single crystal silver wire.

High-purity silver is the metal with the best conductivity. Ordinary silver cables are known for airy openness but also having a distinct, slightly a bright character. A significant reason for this tendency is the fact that these cables basically consist of small crystal pieces, apporoximately 10mm in length, connected to each other. So in 1m of cable there are about 100 “connections“ that have to be crossed, and the delicate music signal is not able to pass through smoothly. Furthermore, these connections are prone to corrosion and the effects of aging, which may cause the sound quality to gradually decline.
Monocrystalline cables are different, because they virtually consist of a single crystal. The ensuing lack of “internal connection impedance” has a very positive tonal impact. Profound transparency combined with perfect balance allows music to breathe.
Obviously, monocrystalline silver can not be cheap due to its time-consuming, patent-protected manufacturing process with low throughput, offered only by very few licenzed manufacturers - and the choice of material.
The construction of the cable is consistent as well: The three transmission paths of a balanced cable, signal plus (hot), signal negative (cold) and ground all have the same conditions by three identical conductors of monocrystalline solidcore 6N silver. They are interwined in order to keep the inductance low.
The shield with 100% coverage consists of a metallized mylar film and a fine mesh of silver plated copper wire. The shield should be used only as a shield, not for the signal transfer.
The distance between the signal conductors and the shield is relatively large for keeping the straightforward character of an unshielded cable.
The unbalanced RCA cable uses one wire for the hot pin and two wires for ground – all three solid core wires made of monocrystalline silver. The shield is single side connected and should be plugged to the receiving unit inputs.
