Clear Beyond Interconnect

Clear Beyond Interconnect, our ultimate flagship interconnect and a marvel of modern cable design, features our most advanced Matched Propagation Conductors. Clear Beyond Interconnect brings noteworthy improvements in spatial imaging, dynamics, and low frequency impact while retaining the classic Cardas musicality.

Clear Beyond Interconnect builds on over 30 years of Cardas Audio’s relentless dedication to the perfection of high performance cables. Superior shielding and advanced air-tube suspension geometry result in an O.D. of .511”, which necessitates the use of our XRCA 13 adaptor for single-ended termination, and a re-designed CG XLR for balanced cables.

More than anything, Clear Beyond Interconnect is musical. Tonal balance is completely neutral with unsurpassed speed and transparency. Each pair is made to order and hand terminated only by our most experienced technicians.

Standard Terminations: Cardas SRCA or CG XLR.

Design/Construction: Conductors: Matched Propagation Kevlar core, ultra fine Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions and range from 47 AWG to 39 AWG. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in ultra thing extruded PTFE jacket.

 

Geometry: Star-Quad 4 conductors with anti-static LDPE air-tubes bound with carbon impregnated PTFE tape wrap. Outer layer uses PTFE air-tubes scaled 1.618 times larger than the core tubes to suspend the composite shield of tinned copper and magnet wire away from the signal carrying conductors. Finished in an ultra soft extruded TPR jacket.

 

Gauge: 4x26.5 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.511”/13mm

Speaker

Performance: Clear Based on the  Clear speaker cable and developed to go beyond reference performance in cost no object systems where the speakers require large amounts of current flow. 

 

Clear Beyond speaker is absolutely neutral and transparent. Perfectly balanced with articulate lows and delicate highs. Amazing dynamics with zero compression. This cable is like running two pairs of Clear Speaker inside one jacket and can be internally bi-wired or bi-amped.

Standard Terminations: Cardas spades or bananas, compression forged using 10,000psi 

Design/Construction: Matched Propagation Kevlar core, Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions ranging from ultra fine 41 AWG to 25 AWG. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in
an FEP tape wrapped jacket.

Clear Beyond Power

Designed to take current delivery and power filtration to the next level... Clear Beyond Power takes the “bigger is better” approach. Larger conductors deliver more power and our largest filter scrubs the power line clean. Don’t let the size fool you, it’s right at home powering front end components and giant mono block amplifiers. Completely neutral and transparent.

Standard Terminations: Soldered and crimped Cardas E-5 premium power plugs with silver/rhodium plated solid copper contacts. Terminated by hand in Bandon, Oregon.

Design/Construction: Conductors: Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free tin plated copper, gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in a PTFE jacket.

Geometry: Double shielded with tin plated copper and magnet wire. Twisted triad mixed with PVC air tubes bound with FEP tape wrap. Super flexible TPR outer jacket.

Gauge: 3x10 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.650”16.51mm

Clear Beyond Power XL

Clear Beyond Power XL

To create Clear Beyond Power XL, we took our very popular Clear Beyond Power, and scaled everything up. Bigger conductors, better shielding and improved noise filtering. We then added yet another level of noise filtration, extending the path to ground to three times the length of the cable itself through a simple and graceful geometry that could only come from the mind of George Cardas. This is our most sophisticated power cable ever, and is designed to provide the largest, most power hungry amplifiers with clean, high current, while also giving sensitive source components the stable, clear and noise free power they require for the absolute highest fidelity. Terminated with our all new premium Cardas E-5 connectors, featuring silver/rhodium plated copper contact surfaces, Clear Beyond Power XL is designed for the most demanding electronics.

Standard Terminations: Soldered and crimped Cardas E-5 premium power plugs with silver/ rhodium plated solid copper contacts. Terminated by hand in Bandon, Oregon.

Design/Construction: Conductors: Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free tin plated copper, gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in a TPE jacket.
Each conductor has multiple lay lengths and has it’s own shield.

 

Geometry: Entire cable is double shielded with tin plated copper and magnet wire. Twisted triad mixed with PVC air tubes bound with FEP tape wrap. Super flexible TPR outer jacket. Filtration: A torodial ground filter is built into the termination and works in unison with a ground leg extension system.

Clear Beyond Dual Phono has been a “secret menu item” for a while. We were asked to prepare a pair of Clear Beyond Interconnects for use with a 5-pin DIN tonearm in an extreme analog system being shown at the Munich High End Show. Then word spread, and those in the know fell in love with it.

 

Now Clear Beyond Dual Phono has escaped into the marketplace.

Headphone

One of our most challenging and extensive R&D projects has finally come to fruition. The Clear Beyond Headphone Cable project began due to the prodding from a handful of loyal customers who wanted to see us push the envelope, and outdo our vener-

able Clear Headphone Cable.

This was no small task, and took several years. Clear Headphone Cable required the development of the first miniaturized concentricMatched Propagation Conductor, which presented challenges in both production and termination. Once those were conquered, we had a cable that expanded the performance of every headphone on which we tried it. But the idea of taking it to the next step was daunting.


We began, naturally, by looking at ways to improve the conductor. Taking cues from Clear Beyond Interconnect, we refined the stranding and braiding, creating a finer arrangement of Grade 1 Ultra Pure Cardas Copper wire. This yielded notable improvements, but we knew we could take it further by doing something we’ve never done before - adding silver.

 

Our all new Hybrid Metallurgy Matched Propagation Conductor features a 30 awg strand of Cardas Grade 1 Silver Wire, in addition to the many improve- ments we’ve made from the starting point of Clear Headphone Cable. Theresults are spectacular. As with Clear Headphone, Clear Beyond Headphone has two separate cables, one for each channel. Braided blue & black thread, and joined

together with beautiful hardware to give it “the look” it deserves.

 

Standard Termination: There are too many options available to list them all. Please contact us to learn about the newest additions to our large selection of headphone terminations.

Design/Construction: Conductors: Matched Propagation Kevlar core, Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. 30 AWG Grade 1 Silver core. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in an PTFE tape wrapped jacket.
