DH Labs Custom Built D-110 110 ohm AES/EBU Digital Cable
The Silver Sonic D-110 is a precision 110 Ohm AES/EBU type balanced digital interface cable. 110 Ohm digital cables are most often used to carry digital audio data from A/D converters to digital tape transports in recording studios.
They are also used between CD transports and D/A converters in home hi-fi systems as an alternative to the more common S/PDIF 75 Ohm coaxial interface.
The Silver Sonic D-110 was designed to be a state-of-the-art, no compromise product.
We feel it’s sonic performance equals or exceeds all other cables of this type, regardless of price. This level of performance is achieved by combining the finest materials available with the highest level of quality control. A critical goal for any digital interface cable is to maintain a uniform characteristic impedance.
This is achieved in the D-110 through the use of a pure Teflon insulation whose thickness is held to a tolerance of .002 inch (.05 mm). The material is extruded under pressure in order to maintain maximum consistency, which minimizes a phenomenon called "VSWR spikes", a cause of jitter.
Other features of the D-110 include silver coated conductors for improved conductivity, solid rod spacers to maintain a constant impedance, and 100% shield coverage to eliminate noise and interference. Our custom DH Labs XLR connectors feature direct-gold-plated, pure OFC copper contact pins, far exceeding industry standards. If your audio system has the ability to utilize the 110 Ohm digital interface, we recommend auditioning the D-110 before investing large sums of money in other cables. Several recording and mastering studios have already selected the D-110 as their cable of choice.
110 Ohm cables are terminated with XLR connectors.
