The WBT-0114 series is available in two variants: The WBT-0114 Cu (copper), and the WBT-0114 Ag (silver). This series replaces the popular WBT-0144 'classic' connector, and is in better keeping with the proven low mass design concept that results in outstanding sound quality.
The WBT-0114 Ag (silver) or WBT-0114 Cu (gold plated copper) Nextgen RCA Plugs are also a lower cost alternative to the WBT-0102 and WBT-0152 NextGen RCA's. These connectors use Ultramid® material for the RCA body (vs metal body for the WBT-0102, and WBT-0152). The barrel is made from brass, and finished in an attractive matte black finish. The contact elements are made from direct gold plated high-purity SOLID copper (WBT-0114 Cu), or high-purity (unplated) SOLID silver (WBT-0114 Ag), in order to ensure the most pristine, accurate signal transmission.
The RCA 'locking' mechanism works in a similar way as a chuck on a drill, firmly clamping the outer ground/return contact around the circumference of the RCA socket. This high clamping pressure not only assures a secure connection but also minimizes electrical contact resistance. Also, size variation between various manufacturers' outer socket contact is compensated for, thereby ensuring a perfect fit... every time.
The clamping sleeve is designed with two sections so that the front section moves freely as the rear section is turned. This eliminates the risk of torsional strain on the contact elements.
The central pin is slotted and ideally formed to offer a firm, yet elastic contact which ensures lasting and reliable electrical connection with minimal transition resistance.
The insulation within the connector is made from heat resistant Fluoropolymer, a distinct advantage when soldering connection cables, particularly when working with the higher soldering temperatures of lead-free solder. WBT recommends the surface friendly WBT Solder.
When combined with WBT RCA sockets, the contacts are positioned in such a way that the outer conductor is in contact before the inner conductor, thereby preventing undesirable or even harmful voltage peaks.
A Torx screw provides reliable cable strain relief on your interconnect cable.
Each kit contains 4 connectors (two red and two white).
The WBT-0114 RCA's accept cable diameters up to 9mm.
