The Element Integra S/PDIF is designed to match the consumer digital audio specification by maintaining a true 75 Ohm impedance, ensure error-free transmission of digital data signals. Many cables actually fail to meet the 75 Ohm standard due to flaws in the way the cable itself is manufactured and assembled. Our cold-weld solder-free connectors avoid the continuity breaks and compression of the cable’s shielding screen which cause impedance problems and lead to compromised jitter performance. The central conductor is multi-stranded OFC (Oxygen Free Copper), insulated by an extremely low-loss foamed polyethylene dielectric, the resulting sound being clear and dynamic with minimal jitter-induced noise. The Element Integra S/PDIF makes an ideal entry level digital cable between CD transport or streamer and DAC.
