The multi-purpose sound conductor. Whether live on stage or in the recording studio, this is the perfect cable to transmit unbalanced signals.
- Single solid core conductors for signal and ground
- Silver-plated, oxygen-free copper conductors
- Pigment and plasticizer-free high purity polymers
- Optimally protected against microphonics
High quality conductor materials
The selection of the right conductor material is crucial for the sound. The basis of all VOVOX® link sound conductors is silver-plated solid-core conductors made from oxygen-free, high purity SPOFHC copper. Because silver has an even better conductivity than copper, the current density is additionally enhanced in the important surface boundary.
VOVOX® link sound conductors are covered with two layers of high-tech polymers. Although plastics are not directly involved in the signal transmission, they do have an effect on the sound quality. VOVOX® doesn't use any PVC. Only ultra-pure plastics without plasticizers are used. Even the use of color pigments is avoided.
Additional conductor for ground
The conductors within a cable must fulfill several functions. The shield has the main function of protecting the signal conductor from interference. In most cables, the shield is also used as the return signal conductor. VOVOX® consequently separates these functions. This may be a more complex construction, yet it results clearly in better sound quality.
Optimal protection from microphonic noise
When a guitar cable is moved or stepped on, small electrical signals are created due to the change of the capacitance or due to electrostatic charges. This effect is called microphonic. It creates a disturbing crackling noise. Usually this phenomenon is avoided with the help of conductive plastics. However, like this also sound quality is negatively affected. We have found our own technique to solve the problem of microphonic noise using natural materials - without compromising sound quality.
It is impossible to judge the quality of a cable just based on its capacitance. Nevertheless, to have a low capacitance is a precondition for an unbalanced cable to transmit the whole frequency range. VOVOX® link protect A has a low capacitance of only 90 pF/m.
VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, is lead-free.
