A key part of our multi-award winning Mavros family, the Mavros AES-EBU is a high-performance 110Ohm cable using silver-plated copper conductors. Typical usage is in ‘high-end’ digital balanced systems as employed by DCS, Meridian and many professional recording studios.
A true reference class balanced 110 Ohm digital cable.
The Mavros AES/EBU cable is engineered as a cable with extremely precise transmission and termination standards, incorporating the same microporous PTFE (Teflon™) dielectric insulation as the other Mavros interconnects.
The centre conductor is comprised of a monofilament conductor and 18 strands of super pure copper wire insulated by a thin layer of microporous PTFE. This dielectric behaves almost like the theoretically perfect insulator –free air – with minimal effect upon the signal being transmitted. The previous highest performance insulator, solid PTFE, has a dielectric constant of around 2.1 whilst the new PTFE (Teflon™) foam improves this figure to around 1.5, providing for a 30% greater signal velocity and better signal integrity, particularly in the area of high frequency timing and stability.
The co-axial double shielding layers are an aluminium Mylar™ foil followed by OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) braiding after which the whole cable is protected by a PVC jacket damped with cotton yarn.
With a consistent termination impedance, the Mavros AES/EBU interconnect perfectly matches professional and semi-pre digital audio equipment to ensure error-free transmission of high speed digital signals. The result is evident in the timing and dynamic range of musical performances where the temporal ‘smearing’ of lesser cables is absent.
