NEW ITEMS! The VH Audio V-Quad™ Cu21 (4 x 21 AWG) and Cu24 (4 X 24 AWG) analog interconnect cables each use VH Audio's UniCrystal™ OCC copper for each of the 4 single conductors, arranged in a Star Quad geometry. The V-Quad Cu21 and the V-Quad Cu24 each use solid core conductors (not stranded). Each of the conductors is insulated with VH Audio's AirLok™ dielectric- a proprietary form of foamed/cellular Fluoropolymer insulation with a dieletric constant (D.C.) of less than 1.5.
The conductors are arranged in a low inductance "star quad" geometry that is ideal for analog interconnects that need a self shielding geometry (but don't need a full shield), DC umbilical cables, and hookup wire from loudspeaker crossovers to tweeters and smaller midrange drivers.
At the core of the V-Quad Cu24 cable, natural cotton is used to buffer micro-vibrations. The entire Star Quad bundle is then wrapped securely, with two layers of PTFE, to constrain inter-conductor micro-movements. Finally, VH Audio's proprietary ultra-flexible jacket (derived from the formula for VH Audio's AirSine power cable) is used to further buffer internal, as well as external resonances/vibrations.
The VH Audio V-Quad Cu24 is recommended for headphone cables, internal speaker crossover hookup wire (tweets and mids), line-level / phono analog interconnect applications, or signal hookup wire inside electronic components.
The V-Quad Cu21 is ideal for DC umbilicals, internal speaker crossover hookup wire (tweets and mids), or very low resistance signal hookup wire inside electronic components. The maximum sustained temperature rating of 150 degrees C means it can be used reliably inside vacuum tubed electronics.
For DC umblicals, the Oyaide DC 2.1G and Oyaide DC 2.5G DC connectors are ideal.
Outside diameter is .187", for both the V-Quad Cu21 and Cu24. Capacitance is a moderate 29.13 pF per foot for the V-Quad Cu24, while achieving very low inductance of .0716 uH per foot. DC Resistance is 12.95 mOhms per ft, when measuring 2 out of the 4 conductors wired in parallel (as connected in a star quad geometry).
