A Simple Interconnect Design, Brilliantly Executed
Jay Victor's new Pangea Audio Prime Interconnect closely follows a principle attributed to the legendary physicist, Albert Einstein. Einstein was quoted as saying that one of his guiding principles was "everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
Jay's new Prime cable is a simple design, but it's executed brilliantly with carefully chosen premium materials. The Prime conductors are 99.99% pure oxygen-free copper. Most cables at this price point use cheap tinned copper or, even worse, made with a cheaper metal. To reduce RF and EM interference, the conductors are twisted and then covered with a double-sided AL/Mylar shield. Conductors are insulated with advanced foamed PE insulation. This foamed PE is a step up from ordinary solid PE because it is filled with tiny air bubbles to reduce dielectric absorption. The entire cable is then covered with a highly flexible yet very tough woven fabric cover.
Low Price, Big Performance
To keep the price low, Prime features non-magnetic and non-ferrous RCA covers with an expensive looking metallic finish. The RCAs and stereo mini jacks feature gold-plated machined brass conductors with a Polyoxymethylene (POM) insulator. The RCA center pin is split to provide a better connection for the positive conductor.
