The TUBULUS Argentus BNC Clock Cable is based on 3 pure silver conductors. These are solid core conductors to prevent strand interaction, which is a major source of distortion. With these 3 conductors the use of the skin effect is maximized which is of great influence on high frequency signals like clock signals. That’s why these 3 conductors with an overall gauge of awg23 perform much more effective than 1 conductor of awg23.
The conductors are surrounded by mainly air, because (except for a vacuum) air is the best dielectric. This air insulation is made possible by our special concentric 75ohm tube construction, which can only be made by hand. For a BNC clock cable it’s unique to have air insulation.
With a special thermo-process the silver conductors are restructured at a molecular level to reach a quality close to mono crystal silver. The TUBULUS Argentus BNC Clock Cable is also equipped with 4 layers of very effective shielding to prevent electrical noise entering into the cable. This shielding has a 100% coverage.
The TUBULUS Argentus BNC Clock Cable is available with high quality gold plated BNC plugs, which are soldered with silver containing solder.
TUBULUS cables are hand crafted with love, expertise and devotion with no excess decoration or luxury packaging and therefore true value for your money! And we offer a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!** Because TUBULUS cables are made by hand the average production time is about 1 to 2 weeks.
WHY BUY A TUBULUS CLOCK CABLE?
A high end clock cable may sound like nonsense. After all it’s just 1’s and 0’s it has to transport. Any cable can do that. But those 1’s and 0’s have to be transported by a bunch of electrons traveling through a wire and electrons don’t know if they are ‘analog’ or ‘digital’. In fact, all electrical signals are analogue.
However, the digital clock signal is different; it is a pulse train, a square wave instead of a sine. But a perfect square wave doesn’t exist, because transition from one to zero requires time. So there is always a rise/fall time and the edges of the square wave will be rounded. In fact the square wave is a kind of trapezium with rounded edges.
Depending on the quality of the cable, the corners of the square wave will round off to a greater or lesser degree and the “flat” portions of the wave will become uneven as well. Small changes will make it harder for the receiver to detect the exact moment the rise or fall is happening. This will induce jitter. And if the changes become too big, the receiver will not even be able to reconstruct the logical 1’s and 0’s properly.
This is why a high quality clock cable like the TUBULUS Argentus can make great improvements in sound quality.
