The new KLE Harmony series of RCA connectors gives audiophiles yet another choice in low-mass RCA connectors. This new design by Keith Louis Eichmann (KLE) comes in three flavors. The first version called the Copper Harmony is a pure copper base version, with silver plating for both the signal and ground/return pins.
The second version VH Audio stocks is the PURE Harmony. This version utlizes a proprietary silver alloy that is claimed to achieve an IACS of 106% for BOTH the signal pin, as well as the ground/return pins.
The third version VH Audio stocks is the ABSOLUTE Harmony, which is similar to the Pure Harmony, but has an IACS that is claimed to have an IACS conductivity greater than 106%.
A nice addition to these connectors is the inclusion of a soft, pliable rubber grommet with an ID of about .14" that can 'stretch' around smaller O.D. cables. Without the rubber grommet, the I.D. of the cable entry portion of the barrel is about .385". Two grub screws also help secure this connector to your cables, for additional peace-of-mind, when it comes to strain relief, and protecting against breakage.
The Eichmann Bullet Plug connector is a totally new approach to RCA/phono connection where every aspect of electron flow has been considered. The result is an RCA compatible connector that can improve the performance of any analogue, digital or video cable - often dramatically. Please note the Eichmann Bullet Plug is minimalist in design and appearance. VH Audio stocks both the Gold AND the Silver Eichmann Bullet plugs. Both work superbly with DIY IC's, with the Eichmann Silver Bullet Plug being truly exceptional on the VenHaus DIY Silver recipe. Each package contains 2 pairs of Bullet Plugs (4 total plugs). Machined aluminum Bullet plug housings are also available (sold separately).
The WBT-0102 and WBT-0152 Nextgen RCA plug utilizes conductor material made of pure copper, and then direct gold plated. The silver version is made of pure silver. Fits cable up to 9.1 mm dia. (WBT-0102 series) or 11.3 mm (WBT-0152 series). Sold in a kit of 4, and includes WBT solder and Torx key.
The Nextgen RCA plug has gone through a few revisions since its introduction, and the latest versions offered (WBT-0102 and WBT-0152) use metal bodies. Cost is slightly more than the WBT-0110, but the added rigidity and robustness of the connection is well worth the few extra $$, IMHO.
The WBT-0102 will accomodate cable diameters up to 9mm, while the WBT-0152 will accomodate cable diameters from 9.1 to 11.3 mm. The WBT-0152 is slightly longer than the WBT-0102 (55mm vs. 51 mm), and both have black bodies.
The Furutech FP-101, FP-106 and FP-120 filament style locking RCA's are unique designs, and sound incredible.

The WBT brand has become synonomous with "the best", and perhaps "expensive"- but we all know you get what you pay for... When looking for quality RCA sockets, it doesn't take long to realize that WBT is as good as it gets. People spend a great deal of money on cables and interconnects, but forget the other half of this equation is the socket you connect your cables to.
The WBT-0201 Topline RCA Socket utilizes high copper content and 24k WBT� supra-gold plating. The signal wire socket utilizes a dual prism spring loaded feature to assure secure contact. It also uses a Flouropolymer dielectric. Includes mounting insulation to accommodate panel thicknesses from 0.1-4.2mm. Tightens from outside of chassis using included mounting nut. Kit includes 1 red and 1 white color-coded socket, and a length of WBT 4% silver solder. The WBT-0244 RCA Socket is the Midline version of the WBT-0201 and is sold as a pair (without solder).
The new WBT-0210 NextGen RCA socket uses conductor material made of pure copper, and is direct gold plated. The signal pin hole is a spring loaded WBT double prism contact, while the ground/return portion utilizes a patented double-wave contact. The socket also uses a Flouropolymer dielectric with torsion proof mounting. Tightens from outside using the included three-hole counter nut. Transmission bandwidth is 1 Ghz, and the socket has a characteristic impedence of 75 ohms, meaning this is an ideal socket for digital components, as well as analog components. Also available in a solid silver version.
Eichmann has done it again with this low-mass RCA socket design! The Eichmann HC-XTC PhonoPod uses a full 20 micron direct gold plating over pure copper. One of the most intriguing parts of this design is that it is a true 75 ohm connection, which means it's perfect for digital SPDIF inputs and outputs. Will accomodate chassis thicknesses to .19".
