Be Music Connected - Audio Cable
Preserving the concept of the MonoS cable line, but being more affordable, the "Be Music Connected" interconnects are made of monocrystalline copper with a silver plating. A combination delivering stunning transparency, but also powerful low frequency extention.
3 braided conductors with foamed insulation are the core of the cable. Another layer of a thin shielding keeps RF noise low while keeping the cable capacitance low. Finest custom made plugs with gold plated OCC-copper pins are applied to the cable.
The Speaker cable is made of 16 solid, silver plated copper wires, in a braided configuration for low inductance. The cable gauge this way is lare enough to deliver powerful speaker control, while being impressively transparent and balanced insound.
B.M.C. suggest the use of the superior SpeakON speaker connector, delivering easy use, most reliable contact and is safe of short circuiting. Our speakers PureVox and Arcadia and also the PureAmp are already equipped with SpeakON terminals.
"Be Music Connected" cables match perfectly to B.M.C.'s PureLine components.
What exactly is this? At Japan's Chiba Institute of Technology a special casting process was developed by Prof. Ohno, which enables a cable extrusion resulting in a very long single crystal silver wire.
OCC = Ohno Continuous Casting
Standard cables basically consist of small crystal pieces, connected to each other. So in 1m of cable there are houndreds of “connections“ that have to be crossed, and the delicate music signal is not able to pass through smoothly. Furthermore, these connections are prone to corrosion and the effects of aging, which may cause the sound quality to gradually decline.
Monocrystalline cables are different, because they virtually consist of a single crystal. The ensuing lack of “internal connection impedance” has a very positive tonal impact. Profound transparency combined with perfect balance allows music to breathe.
Obviously, a monocrystalline cable cannot be cheap due to its time-consuming, patent-protected manufacturing process with low throughput, a process offered only by very few licensed manufacturers, - and the choice of material.
Be Music Connected in Detail
The controlled core design is the logical extension of the basic principle of monocrystalline cable. A litz wire, however, would again allow imperfect cross-connections between the single wires and furthermore increase the corrosion-sensitive surface.
Solid core is hardly vulnerable to environmental influences. And since there is only one or few matched conductors for each signal, there cannot be any imperfect interconnection.
The construction of the cable is consistent as well: The three transmission paths of a balanced cable, signal plus (hot), signal negative (cold) and ground all have the same conditions by three identical conductors of monocrystalline, silver plated, solid core 6N copper. They are intertwined in order to keep the inductance low.
The shield consists of a metalized mylar film. The shield should be used only as a shield, not for the signal transfer.
The distance between the signal conductors and the shield is relatively large for keeping the straightforward character of an unshielded cable.
The balanced XLR cable uses three internal monocrystalline, silver plated solid core copper wires, one for each signal path, including ground as the third signal connection. The shield is single side connected to the "male“ XLR plug. All our plugs have pins made of monocrystalline (OCC) copper. An additional gold plating ensures perfect contacts and a long lifetime.
The unbalanced RCA cable uses one wire for the hot pin and two wires for ground – all three solid core wires are made of monocrystalline, silver plated copper. The shield is single side connected and should be plugged into the receiving unit inputs. All our plugs have pins made of monocrystalline (OCC) copper. An additional gold plating ensures perfect contacts and a long lifetime.
The balanced PHONO cable uses two twisted monocrystalline, silver plated solid core copper wires for the signal transport of each channel. The tonearm ground is connected by another wire to pin 1 of the male XLR connector, together with the single side connected shield. The tone-arm-end of the phono cable can be assembled with 5-pin Tiffany plugs (0° or 90°), RCA or XLR plugs.
The "Be Music Connected" phono cable is recommended for the use with balanced, low-impedance phono amplifiers like our MCCI.
