For all the metals in the MC - SILVER IT Mk II Balanced, Van den Hul uses the world’s highest grade of Matched Crystal (MC) Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) with a very thick mechanically (thus non-chemically) applied purest silver layer. This adds to the sonic qualities and prevents chemical deterioration, reducing any degeneration of the product.
The centre group, acting as signal-up is made of 19 strands very dense silver coated MC OFC with a diameter of 0.16 mm. each. Over this centre group 2 layers of Teflon tape are applied. Then the first braiding, acting as signal return made of 72 x 0.075 mm. very dense silver coated MC OFC strands, follows. After this comes a second insulation layer with 4 sheets of Teflon.
The outer group functioning as shield is made of 2 layers -First: a helically overlapping wound silver tape with dimensions 2.5 x 0.05 mm. -Second: a braiding of 216 strands made of 0.102 mm. very dense silver coated MC OFC.
The outer 7.0 mm. diameter jacket is made of HULLIFLEX ® EHD. This specific insulation material is too costly to be used in all of Van den Hul's products.
