Townshend Audio F1 Fractal interconnects are made with "fractal-wire", Townshend’s ultimate RCA interconnects, available in a selection of lengths.
It took a long time for Townshend to improve the Isolda EDCT (Enhanced Deep Cryogenic Treatment), but they finally achieved it by developing the Fractal-Wire proprietary treatment process. This is as big a breakthrough as was achieved and much imitated when they discovered the benefits of Enhanced Deep Cryogenic Treatment (also applied to Fractal-Wire). However, this time they're keeping the details to themselves! Suffice to say that you have not heard a truly transparent cable until you’ve heard Townshend Audio Fractal-Wire.
Each Fractal-Wire Interconnect is made by hand because this is the only way to build a cable that has the absolute minimum contact with the insulator. The signal travels through a very thin polyester coated enamelled copper wire, which is spiralled around a much thicker bare copper ground. Because signal and return conductors are so tightly spaced external electric fields cannot get in. As a result, these cables completely stop hum in valve amplifier setups, whilst blocking radio frequency interference (RFI).
As the signal conductors only come into occasional contact with the inner of the two concentric PTFE tubes degradation due dielectric mass is kept at the barest minimum. The PTFE tubes are in turn placed inside a clear PVC outer.
Fractal-Wire is terminated in the industry best Neutrik Profi RCA phono plugs which have a spring loaded ground collar.
