Because these are already the lowest prices possible, the additional incentives usually available under "Frequent Flyer" program do not apply to this item.
The TRØN digital cable is a very special product, and the first in the TOMBO compartment of Stereolab's stable of connection products. Designed by Chris Sommovigo and hand built to exacting specifications, TRØN is a limited production product.
It begins life as a very precise 75 Ohm (+/- 1 Ohm) coaxial cable with a raw bandwidth of tens of GHz. It is then treated with long-cycle cryogenic freezing and thawing to relax intercrystalline stresses in the signal conductor's metal lattice before being drawn off for a TRØN cable.
Once on the bench, the very time-consuming process of hand-applying the several layers of shielding is begun. Shielding materials include tinned/woven copper and pure carbon fiber, along with layers of mechanical damping and a final exterior sheath and terminated with XHADOW RCAs*
The result is a digital cable without peer, able to resolve music's most organic and beautiful details with a natural effortlessness that can leave one convinced that they are listening to a master tape.
* 75 Ohm BNCs are available upon request. Please inquire at time of reservation.
