The JUBILEE HYBRID (Halogen Free)
Our “102” series’ D - 102 III HYBRID is the most widely known audio interconnect from our cable program.
With the first “102” interconnect designed and produced in 1983 and after a number of design upgrades in the meantime, this highly respected and multiple award winning audio cable reached its 20-th anniversary in 2003.
As a celebration, we came with a very special limited edition: The JUBILEE HYBRID
“The JUBILEE HYBRID takes our 102 series to the next level”
The JUBILEE HYBRID’s construction is to a large extent identical to the D - 102 III HYBRID . The most important difference however is that the two contained multistrand audio conductors are made of the highest quality Matched Crystal Silver.
As a further difference the somewhat darker cable jacket carries red type printing; This indicating that this product is a special version of the D - 102 III HYBRID. If you’re already acquainted with our D - 102 III HYBRID’s performance and are thinking about an upgrade or are simply looking for one of van den Hul’s first-rated interconnects, The JUBILEE HYBRID is certainly worth your attention.
Based on our well-proven “102” interconnect series, The JUBILEE HYBRID’s design incorporates highest quality materials and maximum lifespan protection.
As such The JUBILEE HYBRID features:
- Pure Silver
The JUBILEE HYBRID’s balanced lay out features two internal signal conductors, each made of 3 lacquer coated signal wires are of the highest grade pure silver.
The use of special techniques during manufacturing also prevents aging of the wires, such generally caused by external processes like bending and/or soldering.
- Balanced Construction
Supplied wired as an unbalanced interconnect and equipped with RCA type connectors, The JUBILEE HYBRID’s balanced construction with two centre conductors is used to its full audiophile potential: both cable’s silver cores are solely used to transfer the audio signal (i.e. one serving as signal up and the other as signal return), thus implementing an ultra-resolution 100% solid silver wired audio signal path.
- Moisture Protection
Surrounding the centre conductors, special treated artificial filler fibres provide a perfect protection against moisture penetration. In high humidity (tropical) environments, moisture penetration normally can induce losses and deteriorate time alignment due to enlarged parasitic capacitance.
- Triple Shielding
The JUBILEE HYBRID’s triple layer shielding provides a perfect protection against penetration of radio frequency and other electromagnetic interference into your audio signals. The triple shielding consists of 2 helical layers of together 192 strands made of dense silver coated OFC copper with an extra layer of Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) saturated tape in between.
- Ground End
In RCA connector terminated version, The JUBILEE HYBRID’s triple shield is connected to ground only at one side of the cable. As such it functions as a true screen: Not carrying any audio signal, it screens the inner audio conductors and drains away unwanted noise to the signal source’s ground. The related side of the cable is indicated by means of a ground-end marking sticker and is advised to be connected signal source side to achieve the best sonic quality.
- HULLIFLEX ®
The JUBILEE HYBRID’s outer jacket is made of our rugged and hard-wearing HULLIFLEX ® , a plasticizer and halogen free insulation material. This jacket provides improved flexibility and a better protection against environmental chemical agents. The result is a very stable sound quality and a long lifespan.
- 24 Carat Gold Plated Connectors
The use of nickel free (non-magnetic) high grade RCA type connectors, which are respectively plated with copper, silver and 24 carat gold, makes a considerable contribution to the excellent quality of The JUBILEE HYBRID.
“A true celebration of Sound”
Regarding its sound properties, The JUBILEE HYBRID is very rich in detail and extremely smooth at high frequencies.
The bass reproduction and the enormous depth of image are truly exceptional.
The JUBILEE HYBRID is NOT sold on reels and is only available as box packed stereo pairs with RCA (unbalanced) or XLR (balanced) connectors in 0.8, 1.0, 1.2 and 1.5 m. lengths. Larger lengths are available on request.
The JUBILEE HYBRID comes enclosed with a free Super Audio CD (plays on SACD, most DVD and standard CD players).
Beware: Due to its audiophile qualities and limited edition The JUBILEE HYBRID may soon become a real collectors item!
We wish you many happy listening hours with The JUBILEE HYBRID !
