When we started to see the great results that the new MARC© conductor could give, our research focused on developing connectors that could enhance the new cables we were developing. It is well known that the connector is a crucial point in the transmission of the audio signal, where the use of conventional brass connectors, can lose up to 50% of the performance of a connection, so we immediately started the project called RCCP, as our goal was to build new connectors with pure copper contacts.
The challenge was particularly daunting as it involved redesigning all the connectors taking into account the greater softness of copper, which is not suitable for connector production as the contact points are often very thin and can be prone to bending.
After more than two years of work, we can say that Ricable is the first cable manufacturer to produce an entire series of Hi-Fi Audio cables (series Invictus) with fully copper conn ectors and for the two smaller series, the connectors are fully copper in most products, with a few exceptions, where it was necessary to use a Copper-Tellurium alloy, which in any case is a far superior conductor to the brass that is generally used in Hi-Fi connectors.
All connectors in the Magnus, Dedalus and Invictus series are designed and engineered by us and are manufactured individually using a special CNC technique, adapted to the use of copper as a raw material.
Non-copper parts, such as shells and plastic components, all adopt solutions to improve and safeguard contact points.
The result of this painstaking work is impressive. From tests we conducted, there was an improvement in the transmission of electrical parameters of over 40% compared to brass connectors and this resulted in a marked improvement in listening as well.
