PGS-THREE-D (discontinued in 2007)
"Pure Gold Signal -Three Dimensional" is one of the three equally advanced analog
interconnect models of the New Generation cable
PGS-Three-D was introduced in 2002, improving upon and
replacing our acclaimed "original" PGS.
In October, 2004, the PGS-3D received a complete overhaul and
now incorporates the superior termination technique developed for
our flagship interconnect, the Indra: the RCAs connectors are now proprietary
STEALTH (ultra-light Teflon/silver, cold-weld pressure fit onto
the gold wire), the outer jacketing is now gold in color...
... and the cables are marked "under the skin" (which includes the small signal direction arrows, black and red).
The PGS-3D features summary
- 99.997% pure solid gold signal path;
- heavy duty three-layer outer jacket;
- optional Cryogenic treatment (special extended audiophile cycle)
- built-in gradual strain relief;
- Three-dimensional TCTA multilayer matrix geometry;
- unique serial number for each pair;
The PGS-3D interconnect cables are available in single-ended RCA-to-RCA, balanced XLR-to-XLR, and "converting" femaleXLR-to-RCA and RCA-to-XLRmale configurations;
The 2002 and 2003 production RCA to RCA cables were terminated with Cardas "Ultimate" rhodium-over-silver plated, non-magnetic beryllium spring-loaded connectors chosen for excellent sonic performance and
excellent reliability; quite a few PGS-3D cables were terminated
with German WBT connectors,
which were available as an option.
The latest, 2004 version of the PGS-3D is terminated with our
proprietary ultra light RCAs with all Teflon dielectric and 99.99%
pure solid silver contacts. There connectors offer two clear
advantages: first, since the contacts have much lower mass -
compare to the conventional all metal RCAs used before, the
"transition" from the very thin alloy wire to the
connector is much smoother; second - these new STEALTH connectors allow us to use the same
termination technique developed for the Indra (pressure-fit =
solderless cold welding). As the result, the newest PGS-3D sound
even better than before.
The XLR connectors used with the balanced version of these cables
have not changed. They are sourced from the World's largest PRO and high-end audio connectors manufacturer: Neutrik of Switzerland, and used with a proprietary STEALTH designed strain relief;
