SHCA - Solonex Hybrid Conductor Array.


SHCA - Solonex Hybrid ConductorArray is a unique blend of Ultra Pure Single Crystal Copper strands mixed with Ultra Pure 4N Single Crystal Silver Strands - no silver plating, which causes timing errors and phase distortions leading to a grainy and harsher presentation. The benefits of this approach are such that the conductors can be arranged in bundles to equalise flow speed, maximise clarity and respectfully reproduce tonal qualities in a very organic manner. Reference Plus is a finely tuned, textured and realistic sounding cable which imparts almost no colouration into the sound.


Solonex Hybrid Conductor Array comes from many years of technical development and design work, utilising in-house modified precision measuring equipment. Each SHCA conductor is comprised of a specifically formulated number of our specially chosen Ultra Pure Nordic Copper which have gone through vigorous extrusion and casting methods, strengthening and annealing processes to create an Angel Hair softness with a huge, summed conducting surface area conductor which is ultra flexible, distinguishing itself from most other UP-OCC type high purity copper cables.


Much like the copper portion of the conductor array our 4N Silver is treated to the same processes as it’s copper counterpart.

The integration of silver into the Hybrid Array needs to be very carefully positioned so that that when bundle together with the copper it has the same directional flow speed so that not to cause timing errors and distortions. Stringent measurements, along with many hundreds of hours of group listening tests with some of the pro and home audio’s industries leading professionals have played part in creating a sonic balance which is both natural and rich in musical information, without ever colouring the presentation.


SHCA is a hybrid conductor array which minimises skin effect and phase distortions and maximises timing accuracy, which when used as a primary conductor, such as in the Reference Plus range of cables and as part of the high speed earthing system in BLACK STAR it lends itself to creating superior benefits over application.





Throughout the twisted configuration of Reference Plus Digital Interconnects we use natural cotton and silk as a dampening material. Both materials are well know for their dielectric capabilities and abilities to absorb micro-vibrations in cables and here we settle for nothing less than the best method to enhance the technical parameters already so carefully employed in Reference Plus in order to maintain a presentation with as little colouration due to the build up of resonances, which contribute so significantly to colouration, grain and distortion, leading listening fatigue.



Minimal Opportunity Plugs


These custom designed Copper Alloy/ 24ct Gold Plated plugs use minimal amounts of metal and are more an extension of the conductors. They are lightweight, introduce no interferences and reduce inductance and capacitance to ensure that each plug has as little impact “Minimal Opportunity” on the cable as possible. We aren’t trying to enhance the performance of the cable by adding a plug made from exotic materials. Our goal is to minimise the effect of the plug on the cable period!


The Reference Plus range of cables are noted for their even handed, balanced characteristics, realistically reflecting genre type and recordings in a vivid and life-like manner. Recreating scenes from your favourite pieces of music with more emotional connections than ever before.
