The Lava Un-Coil cable is our popular Retro-Coil cable before it is coiled and features an exclusive proprietary outer jacket that is a unique Hybrid Elastomeric Polymer blend that makes it the most light and durable coil cable available, and allows for vibrant colors not seen with the competition. It passes signal extremely well because the effects of high capacitance are minimized by using a 99.99% pure oxygen free copper low- strand count conductor and spiral shield, as well as a nitrogen-injected FPE dielectric to dial in the capacitance so this cable sounds just right - not too dark or bright. It is dead quiet in all situations due to a specially designed inner PVC jacket that was formulated to reduce triboelectric noise to a minimum. Gold plated G&H plugs by Abbatron with their patented Copper Core Technology are used with 4% silver solder to clearly set the Lava UnCoil apart as best-in-class. Made in the U.S.A.
