The Ecosse Baton MkII Reference Interconnect cable is an award winning hi-fi audio cable and a step up from the very popular Baton Mk1.
This remarkable interconnect uses several complementary sub-topologies synergised in one cable. Space and secrecy preclude a detailed description but we can afford a brief glimpse in lieu of an audition. The conductor is UHP-OFC (Ultra High Purity Oxygen-Free Copper, plated in UHP-OFS™ (Ultra High Purity Oxygen-Free Silver-since silver has a 10% gain in conductance compared to copper, a copper wire plated with silver will have less signal loss especially at longer lengths) spirally wound around a PE (polyethylene) tube with a primary dielectric of gas-foamed low-density polyethylene (LDFPE).
Each conductor assembly has a continuous foil shield and drain wire. Isohelix™ is the patented technology for ensuring not only that the signal and return conductors always maintain a precise relationship to each other, but also that externally induced resonance (microphony) is entirely dissipated within its structure, thus fully isolating the conductors from the outside world. A further continuous foil shield and drain wraps the encapsulation before sheathing in soft PVC.
When wired in a 'pseudo-balanced' fashion using RCA 'phono' connections, the screen is connected at one end only to drain unwanted RFI ‘noise’.
