Blue Truth® ULTRA Digital AES/EBU XLR Cable Cable Overview
Years in the making and our first upgraded XLR Interconnect design in over 10 years. The wait was worth it! The Blue Truth ULTRA XLR interconnect builds on the success of our hugely popular and well-reviewed Blue Truth XLR interconnects. The Blue Truth ULTRA XLR cables are a substantial step-up in performance. We changed from a stranded-core to solid-core silver-coated copper conductor. We also upgraded our dielectric material to a fantastic foamed Teflon® insulation.
How does this change in construction affect the sound? You will get amazing clarity and detail. You will get improved soundstage. The voices and instruments sound more realistic. There is no harshness in the sound and you will experience no listener fatigue. EVERYTHING IS BETTER!
AES/EBU (developed by the Audio Engineering Society and the European Broadcast Union) is the two-channel digital standard for interconnecting digital devices. The cables in this section are the type for use with an XLR connection. While AES/EBU cables may look like ordinary microphone cables, they are very different. Unlike microphone cables, which are designed to handle signals in the analog audio bandwidth, AES/EBU cables are 110-ohm impedance cables used for digital AES/EBU signals and handle a much wider bandwidth.
Our Blue Truth® ULTRA XLR cables exhibit exactly equal impedance from each line relative to the ground, guaranteeing equal noise susceptibility. Since the balanced input stage amplifies only the difference between the lines, it rejects everything else (noise) that is common to the lines.
Blue Truth® ULTRA XLR Audio Cable Technical Information
- Solid-core silver-coated conductors.
- 100% coverage shield.
- Features audiophile-grade Neutrik Male to Female XLR connectors with silver contacts.
- Extremely low 12pF/ft capacitance.
- Foamed FEP Teflon® dielectric insulation.
- 110 Ohm Impedance - perfect for digital AES/EBU.
The hybrid construction gives all of the sonic benefits of silver (dynamic high frequencies) and all of the sonic benefits of copper (deep, tight bass response).
The Blue Truth® is their latest iteration of simplicity, quality, and not very expensive...Teflon is the dielectric, which is considered about the best there is, with its low dielectric constant, and should provide a low capacitance. Sound quality was solid, and what I have come to expect from BetterCables. There was no harshness or smearing that I could detect. All in all, these latest BetterCables® products are as listenable as any that I have heard.
