REFERENCE CABLE FOR HI-FI AUDIO
Neobox’s First 6N High-Purity Copper Cable
6N high purity copper wires
Celibidache was produced as an attempt for reversal of the exclusive production of silver plated products in the past. It uses 6N high purity copper wires for the first time in the Neovox line-up.
It was a response to the demand of existing Neovox cable users and an attempt to enable sound quality tuning only with Neovox cables in the entire system.
Teflon air insulation
The most ideal material for attenuating the dielectric constant through insulation is air. If the dielectric constant of air is 1, the dielectric constants of Teflon and polyethylene are 2.1 and 2.3, respectively.
CELIBIDACHE uses air and Teflon, which are the most ideal dielectric materials.
The method is to use a unique Teflon binding technique and adjust the compression ratio between cable conductor and Teflon.
This method was first attempted for elibidache and the highest level of insulation has been implemented while forming a fine air layer through this insulation technique.
Geometry and connector
As the basic step, 6N high purity copper conductors and Teflon air insulation would be top class for producing high-end sound. In addition, the number of strands and twisting of conductors, external finishing and termination process are the final key.
Celibidache boasts the highest possible purity, almost perfect insulation, and the most appropriate number of conductors. Despite enormous costs, only selected cables through sample tests are used.
Interconnects (XLR, RCA)
The interconnect is composed of two cables with 19 strands and two cables with 26 strands. These four cables are used separately for positive and negative poles and grounding. This is a choice to increase the information amount to the maximum without being biased to a specific band.
Both connectors for RCA and XLR cables are newly designed and produced exclusive connectors for Celibidache that are different from the existing Oistrakh cables.
Our speaker cable is composed of 8 cables with 19 strands and 8 cables with 26 strands. They are arranged to the two poles and terminated.
The plugs are two types: one is Rhodium-plated spade and the other is banana. Banana plug is specially designed with spring inside. Thus, it has excellent tightening elasticity when the cable is inserted into the terminal and the contact area is even larger than locking banana plugs.
The Celibidache power cord has upgraded the performance to the highest level by using a plug that was used in Tartini MKII, which is the top-quality power cable of Neovox. This is a Rhodium-plated plug and boasts excellent design, build, and sense of grip.
Furthermore, as many as 65 strands of conductors are used in one pole with 6N high purity copper wires. The diameter of the center conductor is as large as 10 AWG. The shielding rate of the shields made by braided shielding is approximately 40%.
Digital Coaxial Cables
Unlike other general cables, digital cables are highly sensitive to impedance and shielding. Therefore, special structures are required for conductors and geometry. For the coaxial cable of the Celibidache line-up, It uses 6N high purity copper, but is insulated with PTFE and air, and optimized at 75 ohm impedance. Three 19-strand cables are twisted and the shielding rate has been optimized to 99.8% by braided shielding with two layers of pure copper.
