1002.WireworldUSB.JPGWireworld has introduced a new flagship audio interconnectcable featuring Composite Dielectric Technology (CDT•) and a molded carbon fiber connector housing. This cable represents a new addition at the top of the brand's line, rather than an upgrade of an existing model.

"Over the years we've come to realize there is no one perfect insulating material," said David Salz, President of Wireworld. "Each has advantages and disadvantages. By applying composite materials technology we've managed to formulate a proprietary dielectric that exceeds what we previously believed was possible. This is easily the finest interconnect cable we've ever heard."

Wireworld's Platinum Eclipse interconnect marks the first use of molded carbon fiber in a cable connector. According to the company, by eliminating the eddy currents and stray field effects generated by conventional metal connector shells while still providing effective shielding, these unique plugs reveal finer details and natural acoustic ambience in the sound. The connectors also utilize silver-clad OFC contacts and Wireworld's patented silicone rubber tensioning device to provide the low contact resistance.

The Platinum Eclipse interconnect's four flat conductors are made of Ohno Continuous Cast solid silver with a purity of 99.99997% (6N). The internal design is the DNA Helix geometry utilized by the other interconnects in Wireworld's Eclipse series, however its flat conductors contain substantially more silver than the lesser models, and they are also thinner. The Platinum Eclipse interconnect also utilizes a new innovation called Composite Dielectric Technology, which utilizes a proprietary mixture of specialized materials.

Available in September, in both RCA unbalanced and XLR balanced configurations at $2,995 for a one meter pair.
