Listening to a piece of music in detail is an unparalleled experience when the cogs in our audio chain are well oiled. Deciding to use the balanced connection is a great advantage in terms of listening, but it is essential that the cable is suitable for the type of reproduction, otherwise you lose all the advantage of the excellent connection offered by the devices of undisputed technical standing.
Dedalus XLR is specially designed to provide you with a balanced audio transmission of absolute quality, with extended dynamics, neutral timbre and a well-defined soundstage.
- PROJECT: Dedalus XLR is a Hi-End cable with strong Audiophile characteristics, directly derived from the superior Invictus series. It stands out for its neutrality and detail, with a bright and musical sound that gives a well defined and balanced soundstage. Dedalus XLR is designed to connect equipment whose peculiarities you want to bring out to the maximum.
- MARC CONDUCTOR 70% compared to OFC: 0.55 mm2 conductors made of 7N MARC (Multicore Annealed Ricable Conductor) Copper with strands 0.08 mm smoother and more compact surface allowing 70% better audio transmission than OFC Copper.
- COPPER CONNECTORS 30% over BRASS: Neutrik's top-of-the-line XLR connectors, specially modified for the Dedalus XLR cables, feature pure copper contacts plated with 24K gold. With these connectors there is an improvement in electrical parameters of over 30% compared to common brass connectors.
- REFINED CONSTRUCTION: Balanced geometry with insulation and stranded conductor with crankshaft detorsion, eliminating any stress on the conductors. The insulating materials used are derived from R-TEC technology, with special polyethylenes and treated cotton. The triple total shielding with a mixed Copper/Aluminium/Magnesium system covers all audio frequencies from EMI/RFI interference.
- DEDALUS DOESN'T CORRECT, BUT REVEALS: All technical and constructional measures have a very precise purpose at Dedalus XLR: to maintain impeccable neutrality while allowing your equipment to reveal its true quality, as colouring the signal is the antithesis of the quest for sound faithful to the original.

Made In Ricable
Although the cables of the Invictus, Dedalus and Magnus series are produced with very specific technical dictates, they have a very romantic history.
The inspiration for the new range of refined cables, carefully crafted by expert and passionate hands, with cutting-edge technical and acoustic features and a unique, distinctive and personal design, came to us on an autumn afternoon when we really got into the swing of things. really felt the desire to produce handcrafted products of unique value.
That's why we have dramatically strengthened our R&D department at Ricable and redesigned everything: technological solutions, materials, production, design and testing.
It all stems completely from our vision of product excellence and the experience gained over the years in our industry.
Today, every stage of production is carried out entirely by hand, and the meticulous checks on every single piece consist of meticulous human control using new tools and new testing procedures. and the maniacal checks on every single piece consist of meticulous human control, using new tools and new testing procedures.
This is the great added value of Magnus, Dedalus and Invictus. We are certain that technology is an essential support for quality, but we are equally convinced, as good Italians, that the best things are those made with passion.

Review by Francesco
Anyone who does not believe that attention to wiring marks the difference between a 'before' and an 'after' should seriously rethink their views. This series [...] expresses the full potential of impressive construction and a focus on sound rather than mere current flow. In a nutshell, my system [...] revealed itself in all its potential!
Review by Davide
The difference, listening to the same CD after a couple of days (Michael Brecker, album of the same name), has been enlightening and revealing of how much margin the cable has to give in terms of sound, image and cleanliness. Definitely a purchase that I am largely satisfied with and that even now makes me perceive continuous small improvements in listening to the music I love!
Il est difficile de le comparer avec un autre XLR haut de gamme, je pars très doucement car j avais des XLR de première classe comme base, donc effectivement la différence est frappante. [...] déjà les Dedalus Speaker avait nettement amélioré l'écoute dans tous les domaines, mais avec les Dedalus XLR, les speaker développent leurs subtilités et leur précision. Cette association est quasiment indispensable.

I've recently changed amplification from an integrated to a preamplifier system matched to a pair of monophonic power amps, which I've connected through good quality RCA interconnects.
Since both the preamp and the power amps have an XLR connection, I wanted to try this kind of connection and, after some research on the net, I decided to go for the very Italian Ricable cables of the Dedalus series, so to speak the middle range of their production, a series dedicated to high, not very high, end systems.
As soon as they were connected, so practically without break-in, the differences were remarkable, not only on one parameter but on all: more precision, more musicality, more localization, more airiness and more soundstage. What can I say is that a new sound dimension has opened up to me, a new way that I knew was possible but not with systems of my level, which even if not entry level is not even at the top.
Comforted by this positive experience I decided to replace also the phono cables, about which I have spoken in another review.
I am so pleased with the performance and value for money of these cables that I have planned to replace all my cables with Ricable.
Ricable a further confirmation that the made in Italy has nothing to learn from anybody, maybe it has a lot to teach.
