Parsec Interconnect

Interconnect

Performance: Neutral with a hint of warmth on top. Very transparent for a cable of this price range. Excellent blend of warm midrange with extended bass and treble. This is the runaway favorite for best value in cables. Performs at levels more than twice its price.

Standard Terminations: Cardas GRMO or Neutrik XLR.

Design/Construction: 

Conductors: Kevlar core, Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. Braided cross-field layer geometry, insulated in FEP tape wrapped jacket.


Geometry: Shielded twisted pair with poly-e air-tubes bound

with carbon impregnated FEP tape wrap. Outer layer uses compressed poly-e air-tubes to suspend the tin plated copper

braided shield and outer extruded alcryn rubber jacket away from the conductors.

Gauge: 2x23.5 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.360”/9.14mm

Speaker

Parsec Speaker

Superb balance of characteristics. Classic Cardas midrange, quick bass, rich harmonics, and a naturally extended top octave. Works great with virtually any speaker including bi-wire. This cable evolved from Quadlink and is a mix of old and new technology found in our flagship cables.

 

Standard Terminations: Soldered Cardas CGMS spades or CABE bananas.

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

Geometry: Nylon air tube core surrounded by Anti-static fibers, Star-Quad 4 conductor with PTFE air-tubes
bound together in FEP tape. Flexible TPR outer jacket.

Gauge: 4x15.5 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.500”/12.7mm

Power

Parsec Power

Designed to reject and filter noise, Parsec Power borrows its conductors from the Clear Cygnus found higher up in the Cardas power cable line. Very flexible and suitable for both front end components and amplifiers. Brings your system to life with increased dynamics.

 

Standard Terminations: Soldered and crimped Cardas power plugs with silver/rhodium plated solid copper contacts.

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: 3x14 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.500”/12.7mm

Parsec Digital (SPDIF)

Digital

Quite possibly the best value in digital cables, Parsec Digital is detailed, smooth, and musical. The cable is light, flexible and at home in almost any digital system.

 

Standard Terminations: Cardas GRMO or BNC

Design/Construction: 

Conductors: Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), Gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in a PTFE jacket.

Geometry: Coaxial with low density polyurethane air-tubes bound together in FEP tape to suspend the aluminized polyester

and tin plated copper spiral shielding away from the conductors. Specific geometry achieves 75 ohms.

Gauge: 1x20.5 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.345”/8.76mm

Parsec Headphone

Parsec Headphone has all the legendary benefits Cardas is known for: richness, warmth, detail, non fatiguing, musical, etc.
The cable is very flexible and the rubber jacket slides nicely without snagging your clothing. The shielded star-quad design is one of our most versatile and successful products, very similar to our original headphone cable introduced back in 2003.

Standard Terminations: Cardas 1/4” stereo and Sennheiser HD650. There are too many headphone and amp options available to list them all. 

Design/Construction: Conductors: Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in a PFA jacket. Geometry: Shielded Star-Quad 4 conductor, bound together in carbon impregnated FEP tape. Super flexible Alcryn rubber jacket.

Gauge: 4x23.5 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.204”/5.21mm

Parsec iLink

The perfect cable for connecting a portable music player or a laptop to your stereo system. Parsec iLink is made using Parsec headphone cable, but instead of headphone connectors on the output end, it has a pair of RCA plugs. 

Standard Terminations: 1/8" (3.55mm) to RCA. Other connectors are available, such as 1/4" (6.35mm) TRS stereo instead of 1/8" TRS. 

Design/Construction: Conductors: Grade 1, 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper with SPN clear coat (Litz), gauge sizes scaled to Golden Ratio proportions. Cross-field layer geometry, insulated in a PFA jacket. Geometry: Shielded Star-Quad 4 conductor, bound together in carbon impregnated FEP tape. Super flexible Alcryn rubber jacket.

Gauge: 4x23.5 AWG
Outside Diameter: 0.204”/5.21mm
