These plugs are not merely high grade. Every possible step is taken to achieve true "State of the Art". Every Oyaide product is made under direct supervision to the highest and strictest standards. Since even minute variations can lead to failure, parts are carefully chosen to assure ease of assembly, operation and, especially, safety. Materials are selected for superior sound quality, durability and reliability. To achieve this result, cost is a secondary consideration. Avoiding unnecessary decoration and complexity, we are proud to deliver these products of value for your listening pleasure.
Super thick (1.5 micron) 24K Gold plating is applied directly on the polished surface of the receptacle and blade and is then polished twice again. A final plating of Palladium (0.3 micron) is applied and polished twice again.
The quality and choice of plating materials alters the sound dramatically. Where the Rhodium sounds pure and bold, the Gold sounds warm, spacious and luxurious and Gold Palladium is pure, vivid and extended. Any one of the three is far above standard "audiophile" grade connectors. It's up to you to choose which suits your taste and system most.
