It has often been said that the best digital interconnect in the world (in real-world price terms) is the old Kimber Illuminati D60. Of course, Kimber no longer produce this interconnect (as Ray himself did not actually design it). NO MORE…because The Ecosse Soundman creams the old Illuminati BIG TIME!!!
Developed with the best transports, DAC's and digital amplifiers in mind, "THE SOUNDMAN" propagates a full bandwidth signal within an ultra low noise environment that ensures the most accurate signal transfer possible and represents Ecosse's 'statement' digital transmission product.
In the interests of the most accurate signal transfer with lowest noise ingress and since capacitance increases with length, Ecosse recommend that "The SOUNDMAN" be kept as short as possible. Hence "THE SOUNDMAN" Digital Interconnect is available in 0.1m increments from a standard 0.4m length, made specifically to order.
A world first here is our optional MACH3 FURUTECH™/FURAKAWA BNC jitter-free plug termination-BNC being the truest 75ohm device and the preferred termination of audiophiles. Ecosse are proud to offer this unique option with but a small premium in price.
The plugs Ecosse use to terminate this cable are the latest, development of Ecosse's MACH2 RCA plugs, and among the best, non-compressing plugs available anywhere. As an upgrade option Ecosse offer 'The Soundman' in a Pro-Digital version using their most sophisticated RCA plug assembly-the awesome MACH3 frighteningly expensive constant-impedance Monocrystal™ deep Silver-plated over Copper RCA plugs.
In both cases of the RCA's their shields grip the cable firmly but without compressing the cable, ensuring that the crucial characteristic impedance is maintained. A heavy, silver-plated brass body, with twin high tensile fixing screws, clamps this double-shielded assembly uniformly and without stress.
