Arcadia OCC Interconnect Cable

Type: Audio Interconnect


The Arcadia is a no compromise, OCC copper interconnect developed for the most demanding analogue systems. It shares the same engineering  as the Pure Silver Fusion interconnect but in an all pure copper construction. Its design consists of a twisted pair of fine strand/ tight pitch OCC stranded cores insulated in FEP/Tef dielectric, which are then insulted in PTFE wrap followed by a mylar shield.  A 24-carrier tight pitch braid for 100% protection then follows the mylar from outside interference. Following this we jacketed the cable in 105˚C degree RoHS certified PVC jacket and an anti-static terephthalate(PET) monofilament sleeve.

The all OCC copper design gives it an unique sonic signature that is truly it own and the ideal choice for solid state equipment where the pursuit is authenticity.

The Arcadia like all of our cables goes through our new Ultra Sonic cleaning process where we run the raw copper through a water bath that is super charged to burn away dirt, oil, particals and impurities on the surface of the wire. This Ultra Sonic Bath also has the added unique effect of giving our cables a pre-burn sound that could take hundreds of hours to achieve through normal use.

      Deep Cryo™ Treatment
      All of the conductors used in our cables undergo Deep Cryo™ treatment before the insulation is extruded over the metals. Our research has proven that the conductor—and only the conductor— benefits from cryo-treatment. Materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC™), Teflon™, PE, and Silicon™ can all be adversely affected by cold-temperature annealing. Cryo-treating non-conductors and insulating materials can cause them to break down and become brittle.
      The purity, size, and molecular structure of each conductor determine the specific temperature within the -186ºC to - a 196ºC range that we cryo-treat it at. Zavfino’s research into cold temperature physics has proven that the absolute lowest temperature is not necessarily the best for cryo-treatment.
      This is a two-stage process. In the first stage we draw the bare conductor through a ceramic die into an ultrasonic cleaning chamber that bombards the conductor with multiple ultrasonic frequencies. This emulsification process removes all debris from the surface of the wire down to the molecular level and leaves absolutely zero residues.

      UltraSonic 7 High Voltage / Thermal Break-in
      This is a two-stage process. In the first stage we draw the bare conductor through a ceramic die into an ultrasonic cleaning chamber that bombards the conductor with multiple ultrasonic frequencies. This emulsification process removes all debris from the surface of the wire down to the molecular level and leaves absolutely zero residues. After each individual wire is processed, we strand it into bundles and then subject the bundles to further treatment. During the second stage of the ultrasonic burn-in, we increase the voltage to a higher level that’s just below the threshold of the conductor. This adjustment in temperature allows us to get a unique “break-in effect” normally associated with cables that have had 30 to 40 hours of signal and/or current run through them.

      Revealing

      Completely revealing in detail improvement through the entire frequency response. The value is great in my opinion versus price. My previous cables were of good quality and sounded good, I saw an review on U Tube and decided to give it a try by replacing two pairs of cables in my system. I am very pleased with the results.

      Very Pleased

      Still in the process of burning in, but so far very pleased.

      Good quality for the money

      This balanced cable replaced a Cardas Golden Reference RCA between my Luxman D-06u SACD player and Luxman 590AXII integrated. I have less than 100 hours on the cable, but so far it is proving very satisfactory, giving at least the equivalent sonic performance to the (much more expensive) cable it replaced.

      A winning musical performer

      I wanted to try the Arcadia OCC interconnects based on a friend’s recommendation and I’m so glad I did. They are not only musical, but really balanced in their presentation. What I mean is the music comes through in spades, but there are no unruly highs or lows. Everything sounds as it should and the midrange is fantastic. My listening is now focused on the music. These cables are one of the best (if not the best) I’ve heard at this price. Consider me a repeat customer as I now have the Prima mk ll speaker cable and just received the Majestic OCC usb cable and am really digging it. Raymond is a pleasure to work with!

      Excellent IC's

      The IC's continue to "sound" very good. Very good soundstaging. Frequency response: top to bottom. A bit too long for rack components. I would buy them again. I'm working on a project to continue Tim di Paravicini quest to expand the spectrum from 7 hz to 35,000 hz. I'm hoping the Zavfino interconnect is capable. Thank you and continue the good work at a reasonable price.
