New high end cables from Pioneer

October 3, 2011 by Mobile Beat

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division today introduced three types of reference quality audio cables that includes the DAS-RCA-020R RCA analog, DAS-DGC-020R RCA digital coaxial and DAS-XLR-030R XLR. Ideal for use with Pioneer and other DJ equipment in the market, the new cables are designed to achieve high noise resistance, provide increased dynamic range, and offer high reliability and durability.

“People often forget that good quality audio cables are vital part to any DJ set up,” said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The new Pioneer cables ensure you’ll get the best possible audio output passing through each component by significantly reducing electrical noise or interference that can degrade audio.”

Connecting Features
The Pioneer cables feature high quality materials and an advanced construction process that significantly suppresses noise and obtains a high S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio.

High Purity Copper – Each analog RCA cable is constructed using 6N-Cu (99.9999%) high-grade copper to establish the best connection with the least amount of resistance.
4-Core Twisted Wire – The XLR cables use a 4-Core twisted wire for balanced audio transmission.
Braided Copper Shielding – Each cable uses braided copper shielding to resist any electrical and/or static noise from entering through the cables.
Cable Construction – The cables also feature high pliability construction and neoprene rubber to keep the shielding in place for maximum suppression of noise. Netting is used around each cable for extra protection against damage to the outer insulator.
Collet Chuck RCA Plugs – To ensure proper connection and prevent accidental disconnection, the RCA cables utilize Collet chuck plugs to tighten and lock them in place.
Neutrik XLR Plugs – Used in the professional entertainment industry, Neutrik plugs are featured in the XLR cables for their durability and reliability.
Black Nickel Plating – All plug covers have been coated with black nickel plating that is highly rigid and resistant to damage.
The DAS-RCA-020R RCA analog (pair) will be available in November with a suggested retail price of $259.
The DAS-DGC-020R digital coaxial will be available in November with a suggested retail price of $179.
The DAS-XLR-030R XLR (pair) will be available in November with a suggested price of $299.
