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.

      I'm still currently burning it in...

      But... so far, even right out of the 'box', it honestly sounded pretty decent on my system. I suppose it can only get better : )

      I bought this on the recommendation of an experienced Audiophile guy on YouTube who had a video about 'Interconnects that won't break the bank' He recommended this particular one as one of the 'Higher' quality interconnects he was recommending. He divided the categories into 3 tiers, 1) lower cost; 2) medium quality; 3) higher quality, of which this was one. So, for the price, he recommended this one as very good quality (without getting TOO wild and carried away : )

      Currently it is running from my brand new DAC (I've NEVER EVER done anything digital before, or had the slightest interest to do so, in over 40 years of pretending to be an Audiophile - But, I DO have quite an extensive collection of Lossless FLAC files on my computer & HDDs)

      If I can post a link to pictures of my system here, you can check out what kind of setup I'm playing this cable through.
      I've added comments on the lower right corner of some of the pictures describing my system in more detail: https://photos.app.goo.gl/9ja3UKob7tppW4Y38

      Just what I needed

      I recently purchased a new high end DAC and the Silver balanced ICs from Synergistic Research I was using sounded a bit bright. I had previously been informed about the Zavfino brand thru a You tube video and decided that the Arcadia OCC had just the right "stuff" for my system. I also liked all the various processing steps that Zavfino uses to fine tune the product. Upon receipt and installation it became obvious I made the right choice. The high frequencies smoothed out immediately and over a brief break in period the overall sound became well balanced and smooth.

      Arcadia MKII Interconnects

      These are wonderful sounding interconnects. Amazing performance and build quality at a very modest price. I've been an audiophile for 50+ years and have owned many cables from budget to extreme and everything in-between. These cables have replaced some very expensive well known and respected cables in my system. Raymond is a pleasure to work with providing top notch service.

      The cables are so good I'm going to buy another pair.

      Wonderful Sounding Arcadia OCC Interconnects

      I have been listening to Zavfino Arcadia OCC Interconnects for 2 months now and after weeks of A/B comparisons to cables costing $1K+ more, the Arcadia are keepers! These Arcadia cables are more open/transparent, natural sounding with a wide and deep sound stage and imaging is tightly focused, holographic and precise while maintaining a relaxed presentation without obscuring any low level detail. The asking price of the Arcadia is a bargain and the performance is quite amazing regardless of cost…
