recording with utmost precision and fidelity. Pure Silver Signal Conductors, Multi-layered, quad-shield construction for maximum shielding and noise absorption combines to create performance that displays the following characteristics:
Ultimate clarity, transparency and speed
Highest density of timbral, spacial and ambient information
Relaxed natural sound

 

Finewire Tonearm Cables by Stereo-Lux High Fidelity

All cables are manufactured by a special technique which I developed Heiko Wingender. Every cable is assembled by hand.

The silk isolated signal wires are cryogenically and thermally treated, pair wise twisted, mounted on a special device and finally varnished with C37 natural resin lacquer. A C37 lacquer mixture is used for this special application on signal wires by the inventor Dieter Ennemoser.

The signal wires are screened and protected by an outer jacket, one for each channel, matte black surface and around 4 mm diameter. The signal wiring and the screening/earth wiring are completely separated so the signal wiring is symmetrical and balanced to ground. A terminal lug connects the screening to the phono preamplifier.

The completed cable finally undergoes a 24 hour burn in process with a special modulated high current signal. These cables compete with or surpass the best and most expensive phono interconnects from famous manufacturers as many customers reported.

And in a decent way, with the computer slaved to the internally generated clock with absolute bit transparency.

The Weiss INT204 is a USB to AES/EBU (unidirectional) interface. It also handles DSD to PCM conversion, thus if a DSD files is played on the computer the INT204 converts the DSD data to PCM at a selectable sampling frequency and word-length. Your trusted D/A Converter thus all of a sudden becomes a DSD capable DAC.
