The D – 501 SILVER HYBRID is regularly used as a microphone cable in critical professional recordings and as a special product for SME in England together with their prestigious tonearms which on customer request can be fit with this silver version of the D – 501 HYBRID.
The 2 signal lines are made each of 19 x 0.1 mm. highest grade Matched Crystal Silver strands.
The signal line insulation with the colours white and red is made of cell-PE, so the stripping can even be done with your fingernails to prevent damage of the silver strands commonly caused by mechanical stripping.
The resistance per signal lead is: 11.9 Ohm/100 meter.
The capacitance between the 2 signal leads is a very low 58 pF/meter.
The hybrid shielding consists of a dense and very pure silver coated high grade Matched Crystal (MC) OFC 72 x 0.1 mm. wire helix with underneath a Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) saturated conductive sub-jacket.
The resistance of the shielding is: 3.2 Ohm/100 meter.
The very flexible black outer jacket is made of migration-free HULLIFLEX ® to prevent any chemical deterioration over a long period.
The type printing repeats every 25 cm. (10″) to make cutting of specified lengths easy.
The external cable diameter is: 4.0 mm.
