Microphone reference cable EMC-QUAD, 4 x 0.14 mm² | XLR / XLR, NEUTRIK®

from 124,00 €*

The reference cable for High-End Studios and demanding Engineers, providing excellent sound precision, dynamic range, transient response time, spatial imaging, and shielding. With the design based on our star quad multicore we achieve a crossover capacitance of 36 pF. A 100% point-to-point protection against RF interferences is achieved by using a tight CU braiding with a semiconductoraluminum foil, combined with special 360° shielded NEUTRIK®-EMC XLRs which are custom-made for Sommer cable. For optimum conductivity, each of the 4 wires is treated with carbon conductor smoothing.
Custom lengths and color ring versions on request.
Special offer for the US: 30 day 100% money back guarantee.

“The EMC-QUAD drove all of my other cables out of the water – it's so much better. The difference, both analog and digital, was amazing. The depth and imaging of the Sommer cable was outstanding. It sounded very musical. I was shocked when I heard the difference to those cables which I use every day and at how much better the Sonmer EMC-QUAD was. It was probably the best cable which I've ever heard, and I'm very happy to own it now.“ METAlliance engineers, Frank Filipetti, Chuck Ainlay, and Ed Cherney

METAlliance co-founder Frank Filipetti commented,

“A lot of people say there’s no difference among cables, but this new Sommer cable just wipes everything else off the map.”

METAlliance co-founder Chuck Ainlay remarked, “It’s such a quality cable just by the look and feel of it, and the XLR connectors are unbelievable. But listening is believing, right? I did a number of tests using different manufacturers cables and I just went straight from the converter to the speakers, nothing else in between.

I was completely blown away that I would even hear a difference in the cables, and then I was shocked when I heard the difference between a cable I use every day and how much better Sommer sounded, far exceeding every other cable that I tried.”

Advantages:

  • Very neutral, spatial sound image without colourations for the perfect reproduction, especially of classical instruments
  • Absolute reference in many renowned recording and mastering studios
  • Extremely low capacitance of 35 pF wire/wire (crossover)
  • Tested on almost all high-end systems from acknowledged brands (fine-tuned on the reference systems B&W Nautilus & Matrix Series as well as STAX Headphones Japan
  • Gold-plated HICON connectors with S-PTFE insulation or NEUTRIK® EMC Special XLR “SATIN“ with turned, gold-plated pins and 360° screen contact

Application:

  • Connection for highest demands (pre/power amplifier, CD player, SACD, DVD-Audio, phono etc.)
  • Phono cable for linear systems with particularly low colourations
  • Balanced high-end connection in reference studios
Configuration: (EGB1-2000-SW)
