ENTREQ KONSTANTIN 2010 XLR INTERCONNECT
Entreq wooden connectors and shotgun construction
Our original first line... and in a way the mother to ALL our cables.
Konstantin was actually our first product line and gave birth to the principles that we had been working on for years. It's many years on now and the cable has advanced further but the truth and the heart of the design is still the same. The Konstantin is still one of the most accesable all round performing cables we make. It doesn't matter if you use Konstantin in an entry level system or a Higher End system, Konstantin always performs very well. It will almost always let your system perform beyond the limits or restrictions of musicality that are often enforced by other cables.
Konstantin have been gently updated during the years. Get the award " Most wanted product " 2009
Relative to Discover, Konstantin will offer you more detail and better control than the Discover line.
KONSTANTIN DESIGN PRINCIPLES :
1 Separate cable for positive and negative signals
2 Asymmetrical design
3 Positive and negative cables are spun clockwise and anticlockwise respectively.
4 Adapted lengths to minimise the antenna effect.
5 DIC Dedicated contacts so the area on the mass of the contact areas correspond to the cable area.
6 Wood in the contact framework. Non-magnetic and non-conductive.
7 Only pure copper and silver in the signal paths. No alloys
8 Drain wire instead of shielding in order to connect to a pure earth point (External Earth Drain System)
9 Cotton covering instead of synthetic materials
10 EEDS External Earth Drain System
This entails the shielding / drain wire not being connected to the device’s negative pole, but is connected to another external earth point. One of our ground boxes is suggested.
This way, we drain off the interference/noise that the shielding absorbs to the ground outside of the signal paths, instead of the usual mixing it together with the signal wire at the connection to the devices.
