Van Damme Black Series Multicore Audio Cable

This multicore audio cable, also known as the Van Damme &#8216;Black series', has been specifically designed to survive the rigours of the live touring market and other high stress demanding environments. Available in lengths of 10m, 25m and 100m and 4, 12 and 24 pair configurations, it is a cable which has been reliably proven in the toughest environments for professional audio applications.<br/><br/> Van Damme now use a higher purity oxygen free copper for the conductors. The use of this material further improves the solderability and conductivity of the conductor resulting in faithful and transparent signal reproduction from this multicore audio cable.<br/><br/> The thin wall insulation ensures that the overall diameter of these multicore audio cables is kept to a minimum without compromising electrical performance. Electrically it is very similar to polyethylene with a low dielectric constant and high stability across the lower frequency ranges associated with analogue audio signals.<br/><br/> The foil screen pairs have colour coded conductors to the IEC 189-2 standard. Individual conductors are made up of 28 x 0.10mm stands of UPOFC (19 x 0.12mm for the drain wire) to give a conductor size of 24AWG, optimised for use with crimp pins and also ensuring that a completely reliable solder joint can be made.<br/><br/> Generous and competitive price breaks are available on all our Van Damme multicore audio cable products, so place your order today. Rapid is a leading supplier of specialist cabling and associated products for all professional and domestic audio and visual applications.
