We are pleased to announce our new improved, and updated, El Cid cable. This is our entry level cable, and offers exceptional performance and value. We are confident that the new El Cid MkIII can compete with cables significantly more expensive, offering exceptional sound and build quality.
This new cables uses the same high grade, low capacitance coax, with silver plated copper wire and shielding. The new MkIII now comes as standard with our ‘acoustic damping’ sleeving. We have also upgraded the connectors, using our ‘audiophile grade’ RC85S phono plugs. These plugs offer low impedance in addition to exceptional mechanical connectivity. As with the original El Cid cables, all joints are made using high silver content solder.
We truly believe that the improvements made to the El Cid have taken the MkIII to a new level. In our opinion, these interconnects offer unmatched quality, and performance, in this price range.
We have now added a solid silver tonearm wiring kit to our store. This features our 0.2mm 99.99% pure solid silver wire, which is double wrapped in pure silk. Also included in the kit are our gold plated cartridge tags, high silver content solder, and coloured heat-shrink tubing to give your rewiring job a professional finish.
This is an excellent upgrade for your tonearm. The solid core silver wire provides exceptional conductivity, resulting in a low impedance, and capacitance, allowing for better control of critical cartridge loading.
We thought we would start the summer of 2017 with a cable sale. We are upgrading our El Cid MKII cables, replacing the Amphemol RCA phono plugs with our new RC85S plugs. The new version of the cables will be slightly more expensive due to the increased cost of the new phono plugs.
We have a stock of the old version of the El Cid cables which we are now offering at a 10% discount while supplies last. The sale does not apply to the El Cid MKII ‘Acoustic’ cables as we have no stock remaining with the old phono plugs.
To get the discount simply enter the following coupon code at checkout, ELCIDSALE17.
Some of you may have noticed that we had a limited number of El Coto interconnects available. This was due to a delay receiving the new batch of the phono plugs used to make this cable.
The plugs arrived last week, and we spent the weekend building a new supply of El Coto silver interconnects. These are now available to order from our online store.
The Lenco P77 is a rare beast, and one of the most unique vintage tonearm you are likely to come across. We have had one in our system here for the last 4 years, and it gets regular use on the Thorens TD-124. As a high mass arm it is ideally suited to low compliance cartridges, and is a great match for the Denon DL-103.
As most folks will never have seen one of these arms up close, we thought we would put together a short video showing the major features of the arm, and it main component parts. The video is posted below, and is hosted on our new lencomotion audio YouTube channel which you can find here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7LO3teaZNh0G7JYRwP4GPA.
