The basic material for the Oyaide C-004 is Beryllium Copper, which provides maximum conductivity, strength, and a secure contact.
The surface of the C-004 is thoroughly polished TWICE. Then, a layer of platinum (.5 micron) is plated directly onto this polished surface, and the polishing process is again applied twice. Next, the Oyaide C-004 receives the final Palladium plating (0.3 micron), and is again polished twice. The combination of these polishing processes, platings, and thicknesses of platings ultimately leads to the final sound character. This connector is Oyaide's best male connector, with the exception of the F1
For the body of the Oyaide C-004, Oyaide has chosen high density PBT, mixed with 30% glass filler. This combination was used to maximize rigidity, thermal stability and provide high resonance absorption. The outer shell is Polycarbonate.
In our experience, and based on the feedback of our customers, the Oyaide C-004 male AC connector has a tonal character that is very natural sounding, resolving, and very balanced throughtout the frequency spectrum. Highs are sweet and extended, mids are layered beautifully, and bass is rock solid, without being lean or suffering from any bloat or note overhang. A great match for the best cabling and most resolving, neutral systems.
