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.

      No joke audio cables

      I got the Arcadia 7 days ago. I do Qobuz, Tidal, CD’s, and some vinyl too. My system was harsh in the mids and lack bottom end. To make it short, when I started to build my system (stereo only), I did not, wanted to spend money on cables, well not yet, so I bought “good cheap cables recommended by reviewers”. At the beginning they sounded OK, but by the time I finish building the system, like I said before, it sounded harsh in some music. I was worry, "did I make a mistake", then I thought, “well it’s not the best recordings”, in some good recording that harshness was limited. Then in the back of my mind “well could be the cables”. When I install the Arcadia’s, I only bought a pair, of course to test my theory, I connected them between the DAC and Preamp. This cables (Arcadia) in couple of days, they have transformed the sound of my system, just one pair. The sound is amazing, the harshness is gone, is more mellow, better detail in all. I will finish the rest of my system in Zavfino, and that is also including Speaker Cables and Power Cables.

      PS: Credit where credit is due, the first time I heard about Zavfino was from ANA[DIA]LOG.

      Another Excellent Cable From Zavfino!

      I have been an Audiophile for over 30+ years and have owned and own many high end cables from Cardas, Nordost, Stealth and Acoustic Zen to name a few. For the money you cannot go wrong trying the Arcadia cable for musicality and value. All my phono cables are Zavfino and after years of use they are my standout favorites. This company has integrity and solid reputable products that cannot be dismissed.
      As far as the Arcadia goes it is closer to neutral without the coolness of some high-end cables that sacrifice musicality for detail and speed for which the Arcadia's bring you a more natural representation of the music without tipping things up or bloating the bass. In the right position you should find a nice fit in your system, IMO.

      Love the Arcadia's

      This is my 4th pair; my entire system now has Arcadia's; they have an excellent build quality and are a very neutral sounding - accurate. They have a wide and deep soundstage that allows you to just enjoy the music more, no need to worry about the equipment - if you know what I mean. My system is very revealing, and I prefer all copper Arcadia's even over the fusion cables, If your system is a little dark sounding I can see where the fusion's would help but, the Arcadia's are more accurate. They have replaced my reference cables that cost 4x as much. Very happy with the Zavfino cables and really unexpected at this price point.

      A very impressive cable!

      Bought this pair of XLR cables for my Geshelli J2S w/Sparkos+ LPS to Topping Pre90 which I use for streaming and moved my Yukon XLRs to my SMSL D1SE2 for the I2S input.for SACDs. After 50 hrs of burn in, I actually like the Arcadia's better than the Yukon's. A bit more musical, voices have more texture, clearly more detailed bass for sure. Highs are very sweet and just right! My next purchase will be a pair of Arcadia RCAs to trial replacing my Kimber Hero's from my preamp to my monoblocks. Should be interesting!

      Love these!

      The Arcadia cables are a great value with a nice warm sound without lacking depth or clarity. All audio gear is dependent on the gear. As a audio enthusiast who likes NAD with Wharfedale Speakers, these cables are synergistic with the British sound.
