--- Quote ---Siltech’s mono-crystal silver conductors already deliver the highest resolution, lowest loss audio signal path.
But alongside new levels of musicalnuance,  detail and definition, their astonishing accuracy also reveals the shortcomings
in other aspects of cable construction, residual levels of micro-distortion and other error  mechanisms that have been masked
until now. Using the latest advances in audio measurement techniques, it became clear that to eliminate all distortion and minimize
all induced errors would require the mechanical and electrical optimization of the signal transmission path as a whole, including not
just the cable but the connectors as well.  It would require a completely new construction, new levels of geometrical and conductive
consistency. It would demand a complete rethink

The result is Triple Crown – a cable with a revolutionary new construction and revolutionary new connectors that revolutionizes
the musical accuracy of audio cables in the high-end audio market.

Cable performance isn’t just about technical parameters and LCR values measured in the lab – because most audio cables aren’t
used in labs. What Siltech’s exhaustive empirical research has revealed is that it’s not just low LCR numbers that matter, but the
consistency with which a cable delivers those numbers under real-world conditions. In many ways, that is no surprise, given the
proven benefits of conductor quality and consistency and spaced shield construction. What is a surprise is just how critical it
can be – and how it throws development emphasis onto mechanical and electrical stability.

WHAT’S BETTER THAN MONO-CRYSTAL SILVER?
But first, let’s consider conductors: Our mono-crystal silver conductors already set the standard against which all other conductors
are  measured. How could we improve on them? Well, if mono-crystal silver is the best conductor material available, one way to
get better performance is to use more of it, creating dimensionally optimized conductors that use more of this costly material.
The Triple Crown’s conductors are the largest diameter mono-crystal silver conductors we’ve ever used, a solution that’s only
possible in a genuinely  cost-no-object design, where the only consideration is ultimate performance.

...

at 18pF/m, the Triple Crown cable has around one-fifth the capacitance of our already outstanding Double Crown.

Still no specifications just a a brochure of fancy looking wiring enclosures and connectors.

Real world solutions for out of this world performance

measured in the lab – because most audio cables aren’t used in labs.

...

We call the new topology Air
Cradle Construction and it combines massive mono-crystal silver conductors
with ultra low-density insulation created from a complex Teflon matrix, to
deliver incredibly low inductance, resistance and capacitance. The result is a
vanishingly low loss cable with numbers that aren’t just better than any other
cable we’ve ever produced – they’re better under any circumstances.

...

With three patents pending, their solid mono-crystal silver contacts provide
perfect material continuity through the cable and connector, while the revolutionary
two-part asymmetrical design of both the XLR and RCA self-centres
and mechanically clamps the contacts, ensuring a geometrical and electrically
consistent connection, no matter the size or tolerance of the socket.
Despite their size the new connectors are also incredibly low-mass - a result
of the intricate construction and watch-like precision.
That should come as no surprise: only a watch-maker was able to achieve
the tolerances we demanded.

...

Superior shielding and easier handling
The large break-out bodies at each end of the cable are for more than mere
decoration. Each one has a switch on it that allows you to lift the shield
connection, allowing you to choose between directional or star grounding
of each channel’s shields – or no shield grounding at all – depending on
the system and environmental situation. It’s another small but surprisingly
important step in the pursuit of ultimate system optimization.
Each plug also allows the connector to turn through 90 degrees (so 180
degrees per cable). The Triple Crown cables are necessarily bulky and stiff.
We made them as flexible as possible, but we couldn’t make them bend any
more easily without compromising the sound. Pose-able connectors aren’t
just an aid to installation – they’re what makes it possible.

Buzzword bullshit: musicalnuance, detail and definition astonishing accuracy,

exhaustive empirical research, MONO-CRYSTAL SILVER, dimensionally optimized conductors,
costly material, ultimate performance, LCR values, Teflon matrix, material continuity, revolutionary
two-part asymmetrical design, stay ground, ultimate system optimization.

Mono crystals cable...  I still don't understand what it means.

I see a video on the page to do with the design.



Fancy looking enclosure construction around the connectors but still using a simple looking spade crimp terminal.

What do you think?

daqq:
Oh good, a new height in the fine art of idiocy.

edit: Can you even create a monocrystaline cable that actually bends?

Kjelt:
What I think, brilliant bullshit marketing getting money from millionaires without brains.
The same target audience as the pure gold iPhones with diamonds, gold leaves hamburgers etc.
If you buy a half billion $ yacht , this is peanuts  :)

Yeah, and the people on the supply side are the same that design and sell fake medical devices to desperate people: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/dodgy-technology/woo-equipment-repair-ethics/

Haenk:
I'm all excited about that new Sillytech Penta Crown pure Platinum Cable. Made from pure Platinum bars and featuring quantum-dot connectors plated with purified unicorn-blood.
As this is their top-of-the-line product, don't expect it to be cheap. In short: If you care about pricing, this prodcut is not for you  :-DD
