Nylon webbing over PVC jackets and Neutrik® connectors deliver first-rate performance
Buena Park, CA – April 2012… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician, is pleased to introduce a significant upgrade of the company’s popular Elite Series microphone cables. Now available with Neutrik XX-Series connectors plus a new nylon webbing over the cable’s PVC jacket, the Elite Series takes advantage of the latest technological advances and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to deliver performance attributes that are every bit on par-if not superior to-more costly boutique cables.
Available in both Lo-Z (XLR3F to XLR3M) and Hi-Z (XLR3F to ¼ inch TS) configurations, the cable used in the Hosa Elite Series is a vitally important contributor to overall audio performance. These cables use 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors that reduce resistance in order to facilitate maximum signal transfer. Polyethylene dielectrics reduce capacitance for crystal-clear high-frequency transmission while conductive PVC reduces handling noise. Further, a 95% OFC braided shield is employed for noise-free signal transmission. Take all this and complete it with nylon webbing over the cable’s PVC jacket, which is cut- and abrasion-resistant for a lifetime of trouble-free use, and the end result is a cable audio professionals can place their trust in.
A clean, reliable connection to one’s mic preamplifier or console input is of paramount concern for any audio engineer or recording enthusiast, and the Hosa Elite Series microphone cable cuts no corners in this regard. The Neutrik XX-Series connectors employ gold-plated contacts for corrosion resistance and superior signal transfer and utilize a zinc die-cast housing for rock-solid reliability. With a polyurethane gland to prevent cable kinking for longer cable life and chuck-type strain relief for maximum cable retention combined with a sleek, ergonomic design for easy handling, these connectors deliver the ideal blend of performance and long-term reliability.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented on the second-generation Elite Series microphone cables. “These second generation Elite Series cables offer exceptional audio performance and have been field tested for maximum reliability,” said Pusey. “With a rich feature set and a highly competitive price, we are extremely optimistic that this product line will find favor with a wide range of customers. The Elite Series has always been an exceptional product and now, with the addition of Neutrik connectors and abrasion-resistant nylon webbing for a lifetime of dynamic, noise-free sound quality, I’m confident these mic cables offer the best possible combination of performance and value.”
The Hosa Elite Series microphone cables are available in lengths from 3 to 100 feet and carry MSRP pricing that ranges from $42.75 – $203.55. The Elite Series is slated to become available late Q2, 2012.- Hosa
