The TUBULUS Argentus Analog Interconnect V2 is based on pure silver conductors. These are solid core conductors to prevent strand interaction, which is a major source of distortion.
The conductors are surrounded by mainly air, because (except for a vacuum) air is the best dielectric. This air insulation is made possible by our tube construction, which can only be made by hand.
The pure silver conductors are treated with a special thermo-process (not cryo) to enhance the good qualities of silver.
The TUBULUS Argentus Analog Interconnect V2 is also equipped with 2 layers of very effective shielding to prevent electrical noise entering into the cable. This shielding has a 100% coverage.
TUBULUS Argentus Analog Interconnect cables are available with high quality silvered RCA or XLR plugs, which are soldered with silver containing solder.
TUBULUS interconnect cables are hand crafted with love, expertise and devotion with no excess decoration or luxury packaging and therefore true value for your money!

WHY WE USE SOLID CORE CONDUCTORS IN OUR INTERCONNECTS.
The use of solid core conductors eliminates the inherent problem with multi-stranded wire. As electrons travel along such a multi-stranded wire, there is nothing to keep them from “jumping” repeatedly from one strand to another. The main problem is the oxide film that covers the metal surface. When it jumps from one strand to another, the signal crosses two oxide boundaries and “jumps” across a thin air gap. This affects the signal passing through it by partially rectifying that signal and thus the musical signal. With multi-stranded silver wire this effect is less pronounced then with copper, since silver oxide is conductive.
