Innovative Technologies

R-TEC - technological innovations Ricable

With the advent of the new range, Ricable has introduced a number of important innovations, carrying out prototyping work supported by technical studies, in order to choose materials and construction techniques to match the new conductors and connectors, thus completing the production of innovative and better performing cables in every use of the system.

The most innovative technologies have been implemented in the series. Invictusseries, but the smaller series also benefit from studies derived from the top of the range, in order to create a range scaled by requirements and characteristics.

Here are the most important technological innovations in construction geometry, insulation and shading.

New Geometries

With the advent of the new MARC© conductors, we have developed new ways of constituting multi-stranded conductors and new rules for interfacing with insulators and shielding. The aim is to improve the electrical specifications, which, depending on the type of audio cable, have the greatest influence on sound performance. In particular, we have studied specific conductive surfaces for the type of cable and detorsion cords with a Biella Manovella system that allow twisting without stretching the conductors.

New Insulations

In dielectric and non-dielectric insulators, we have incorporated new materials not normally used in Hi-Fi cable production, demonstrating our aptitude for unconventional experimentation. One of the most important innovations is the use of new thermoplastic compounds that provide better dielectric specifications than polyethylene and greater flexibility than PVC, as well as better preservation of the characteristics of the contact copper. Another important innovation is the inclusion in some models of a Germanium-based material that dramatically improves background noise in the audio signal (RNR System).

New Screens

The development work on the screens in the new range was a continuation of past studies. In each project, we identified the most effective screens, both in terms of structure and material, in order to determine efficient and never superfluous screens.
