Clarus Cable Aqua MKII Audio Mono Interconnect
Professional audio components transport signals over balanced connections using differential mode signaling. This technology requires three conductors; one for main signal, one for the main signal inverted (180° out of phase with the main signal) and one for ground. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) will induce a noise level of equal intensity on each of the two signal conductors. By subtracting the inverted signal from the main signal, the input electronics of the component receiving the balanced signal will cancel the induced noise leaving silence. Balanced audio will deliver the highest quality and quietest analog audio signals.
Crimson and Aqua Balanced Audio cables were designed exclusively for Clarus by Jay Victor using a triple balanced geometry, dedicated conductors for the positive, negative and ground connections all surrounded by an independent protective layer of Aluminum/Mylar® and a heavy copper-braided shield. Acting as an antenna/drain, the shield is connected only on the source-end providing a path to ground for induced noise that is away from the next component’s input stage. Clarus Balanced Audio cables are made with the purest copper, PCCC, extruded into three distinctly different optimized conductor types for Bass, Midrange and High-Frequencies. Each conductor type is insulated to minimize interconductor interference resulting in an audio signal that is open and transparent with improved clarity, detail and tonal balance. Clarus Balanced Audio cables are packaged and sold in pairs. Mono cables are available for half pair price.
