New flagship cable products employ state-of-the-art materials and workmanship
Buena Park, CA – January 2014… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician, is pleased to introduce the Edge Series cable products. Featuring genuine Neutrik connectors, Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors, and world-class workmanship, Hosa Edge cables—the company’s flagship cable line—provide musicians and audio professionals with the finest signal transport means available. And because Hosa Edge consists of microphone, guitar, and speaker cables, it can be used along the entire signal chain, ensuring one’s music will retain all the clarity and punch of the original sound.
Hosa Edge Microphone Cables proudly utilize Neutrik XX-series connectors. Manufactured with gold-plated contacts for corrosion resistance, a Zinc die-cast housing for rock-solid reliability, chuck-type strain relief for maximum cable retention, a boot with a polyurethane gland to prevent cable kinking, and an ergonomic design that ensures easy handling, Neutrik connectors are the ideal terminations for a cable designed to provide stellar performance and durability. Hosa Edge Microphone Cables employ 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors along with polyethylene dielectrics and a 95% OFC braided shield. This reduces resistance and capacitance for maximum signal transfer and crystal-clear high frequency transmission while providing maximum noise rejection.
Many of the performance attributes of the Hosa Edge Microphone Cables can be found on the line’s guitar cables as well. Hosa Edge Guitar Cables utilize genuine Neutrik X-series plugs, which employ precision machined, one-piece contacts for signal integrity and structural rigidity. Like the Edge Microphone Cables, these guitar cables feature gold-plated contacts, a Zinc die-cast housing, chuck-type strain relief, a boot with a polyurethane gland, and an ergonomic design that ensures easy handling. Further, the Edge Guitar Cables incorporate 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors, a 95% OFC braided shield, and conductive PVC.
Like the Hosa Edge Microphone and Guitar Cables, the new Edge Speaker Cables employ Neutrik connectors that offer precision machined, one-piece contacts for signal integrity and structural rigidity, chuck-type strain relief, and a sleek, ergonomic design. These speaker cables utilize 12 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors that reduce resistance and provide maximum signal transfer. Further, they are manufactured with a PVC jacket that adds durability, remains flexible, and reduces the visibility of the cable.
Jose Gonzalez, Hosa Technology’s Product Manager, commented on the company’s new Edge Series cables. “Transmitting sound from its source to the audience with minimal signal loss is absolutely crucial,” says Gonzalez, “and this mandate is precisely what the new Hosa Edge Series is all about. Someone at the beginning of the signal chain poured their heart and soul into their music, and the music must reach the crowd with the same quality and impact as originally created. Unfortunately, the quality of the cable that transports one’s signal is often overlooked. With the new Edge Series, all of us at Hosa are confident the music will be delivered exactly as it’s supposed to be.”
Hosa Technology’s new Edge Series cables will all be available in a variety of cable lengths. MSRP of the Edge Series Microphone Cables will range from $45.45 – $145.80 while the Edge Guitar Cables are priced from $46.50 – $81. The Hosa Edge Speaker Cables will carry pricing from $37.65 – $232.50. Hosa’s Edge Series microphone, guitar, and speaker cable products are expected to become available by March 2014.- Hosa
