Thermo-treated precious-metal conductors blended in proprietary ratios. A special geometry that must be formed by hand. Teflon- and air-insulated dielectrics with ultra-effective shielding. Large vibration-isolating tubing, supplemented with an external anti-resonant African hardwood block to reduce structural and airborne vibrations. Termina-tions using customized OFC gold plated connectors. A unique end-shielding to block RFI and clock signals.
In digital applications the paramount goal is to minimize the addition of jitter: Primum non nocere or “first, do no harm.” Achievement of goal is signified by elimination of glaze, strain, aggressively forward midrange and treble, low-frequency bloat, and subtle but crippling corruptions of tonality, pitch and timbre. In Armonico, through careful attention to design and materials we have created a resolving, dyna-mic and refined USB cable that is faithful to source in realism, and faithful to listener in the communication of musical emotion.
