Price down now on this Version 2 Oyaide Audio Cable 1.3 meter PA-02 TR developed by Furukawa Electric using advanced heat control and extrusion technology. Moreover, the outer jacket utilizes a new material (Halogen-free-sheath) developed by Furukawa Electric. Bass is reproduced without loss during play back by reducing the influence of vibration and resonance. In addition, the PA-02 TR cable utilizes an exclusive original RCA plug manufactured by Oyaide.
PCOCC-A: This is an ultra pure single crystal copper wire originally developed by Professor Ohno. This special wire results in an extremely low level of signal disturbance and loss factor due to the lack of crystalline boundaries in the signal path. A highly controlled heating and cooling annealing process and improved surface management create a mirror finish. It is now called PCOCC-A and it is the epitome of Japanese craftsmanship.
OUTER JACKET: The outer jacket consists of a Halogen-free sheath material developed by Furukawa Electric. The low dielectric jacket enables pure signal transmission with high vibration resistance. The resonance control results in excellent bass performance.
STRUCTURE/INSULATOR: The structure of PA-02 is a traditional balanced type shielded wire. The conductor's structure is reversing concentric lay structure. It is the high density between a wire and stranding to evenness, and a random space is excluded. As a result, the sound didn't have a distortion. The insulator used the foam polypropylene with a low dielectric constant. The transmission loss by a low electrostatic capacity decreases.
What is more, The impedance was set to 120Ω. It can be used for not only the analogue signal but also digital signal. An outer shield uses same PCOCC-A as the conductor.
CONNECTOR FOR PA-02 TR: Oyaide created an RCA connector specifically for the PA-02 cable. The contacts are machined from brass and plated with 24K GOLD. And the center pin utilizes a pipe structure and low dielectric TEFLON insulating material for reduced transmission loss. The knurled outer shell is chrome plated, and has a small outside diameter which makes connections easier with equipment that is narrow between terminals such as AV amplifiers.
HIGH VALUE: The combination of high quality materials, construction and performance are nonexistent at this price point. These cables consistently outperform cables at several times the cost.
