Operation Dark Matter

Posted by JFunk on 19/07/2019 in Uncategorized |

We have been working on a new range of cables with a few improvements. Firstly we will be using a cotton cover rather than nylon and more excitingly we will be coating our Litz wire in graphene to add shielding without adding too much weight. We have made a few test cables by hand coating the wire but are now putting the finishing touches on a machine to coat it an anneal it automatically.

Here is a look at one of our test cables.
It is a balanced Audeze LCD cable with our new graphene coated ( dark matter ) wire.
