Neutrality and Resolution
Golden Presence Interconnect is a somewhat simplified version of the legendary Cardas Golden Reference. It fits between the company's Golden and Neutral Reference cables in the product line. It uses the same conductors and dielectrics.
Golden Presence is non-directional like the other Reference cables. In terms of sonics, it maintains the neutrality of Neutral Reference, but has the added resolution of Golden Reference, without being as critical of a less than perfect listening room or recording.
Constant Q Meets Golden Section
The Constant "Q" design of Golden Presence Interconnect arranges different diameter conductors in ascending order of strand cross-section from the center toward the cable outer circumference. Conductors are sized according to Cardas' proprietary Golden Section Stranding, which earned the company an award for "The Most Significant Contribution of the Advancement of High End Audio in Cable and Accessory Design" from the Academy for the Advancement of High End Audio. In real world terms, the ground-breaking design reduces cable resonance produced by fluctuating current flow for a clearer, more in-focus sonic signature.
Golden Presence Interconnect incorporates George Cardas' Crossfield Construction in its manufacture. This sophisticated design reverses every other stranding layer to diffuse the dipole effect.
The 100% copper spiral / teflon graphite composite shielding blocks RFI and EMI interference.
