Element Metik 3.5mm to Integra RCA

3.5mm outputs are increasingly common with the surge in popularity of ‘dual purpose’ personal audio devices and portable DACs. Many of these devices are also used in home hifi systems, but until recently, there have been few interconnects with 3.5mm connectors which haven’t suffered limited performance compared to normal RCA cables.

Metik 3.5mm version of our our multi-award winning Element Integra interconnect.

The Metik range of cold-weld jack plugs brings the solder-free continuous signal path principles of our Integra and Ultra RCA connectors to portable device interconnects. Machined with precision copper-alloy contacts, with PTFE (Teflon™) dielectric, these cables are a superb choice for connecting mobile devices without compromising sound quality.

Conventional jack plugs typically suffer degraded signal integrity,principally by using low-grade components, soldered connections and/or screw fixings which distort the cable dielectric (insulation), which produces measurable changes in the cable’s impedance. RCA connectors are our low-mass Integra phono plugs.

Metik connectors are available in 3.5 & 6.3mm stereo and 2.5mm mono gold-plated options enclosed within a light-weight aluminium alloy cobalt finished sleeve.
