MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced (Halogen free)

It is common to produce High-End equipment with balanced inputs and outputs. With the actual version of our the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Coaxial interlink, it was not possible to meet this requirement. Therefore the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced was designed.
A rather uncommon design with a conductor configuration that is officially named: Tri-Axial.

For all the metals in the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced, we use the world’s highest grade of Matched Crystal (MC) Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) with a very thick mechanically (thus non-chemically) applied purest silver layer.
This adds to the sonic qualities and prevents chemical deterioration, reducing any degeneration of the product.

  • The centre group, acting as signal-up is made of 19 strands very dense silver coated MC OFC with a diameter of 0.16 mm. each. 
  • Over this centre group 2 layers of Teflon tape are applied.
  • Then the first braiding, acting as signal return made of 72 x 0.075 mm. very dense silver coated MC OFC strands, follows.
  • After this comes a second insulation layer with 4 sheets of Teflon.
  • The outer group functioning as shield is made of 2 layers
    -First: a helically overlapping wound silver tape with dimensions 2.5 x 0.05 mm.
    -Second: a braiding of 216 strands made of 0.102 mm. very dense silver coated MC OFC.
  • The outer 7.0 mm. diameter jacket is made of HULLIFLEX ® EHD. This specific insulation material is too costly to be used in all our products.


In practice the sonic results are determined by the quality of the conductors. A lesser factor is the layout of the product.
With superb conductor material, 95 % of the transmission quality is determined. Frequency range is a matter of layout and insulator parameters.
Nevertheless, the frequency range of the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced is 22 GHz. More than enough for a good analog system.

  • The MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced is available stereo pair packed in luxe wooden box with XLR (balanced) connectors in 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2 and 1.5 m. lengths.
  • The MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced is furthermore available in any other specified length starting from 60 cm.

Packing: depending on ordered length. But.......... with great care and full attention to prevent any damage.
