Philex has extensively examined the issues involved in the accurate
transmission of digital signals through cabling. After years
of research, experimentation with materials, shielding and
grounding schemes, we build a select range of digital interconnect,
based on three different performance levels.
We have experimented
with many different interconnect configurations, including
using the filter networks that are so strongly identified
with THOR Interconnect. Since passive networks on digital
interconnects always affect bandwidth and therefore rise time
of a digital signal — resulting in distortion — we do not
use networks on our digital interconnects.
Our analog audio interconnects are designed is to keep noise
out of the audio signal; whereas, in digital signal transmission,
our goal is to transmit the very signals we are trying to
avoid in analog transmission and, at the same time, to avoid
pollution of the digital signals by external noise. To meet
these goals, interconnects must include the following characteristics:
meeting all of these goals, we have created a range of digital
interconnects that set the standard in low noise and accurate
- Low capacitance
design for reduced jitter and accurate signal transfer even
over long runs.
shielding resists leakage and interference for accurate
impedance for extra-wide bandwidth.
attenuation, precision SPDIF digital coaxial interconnects
dielectric to prevent bit errors.
high density braided shielding for greater noise
designed pressure connection keeps fiber in perfect alignment
shell connector for lifelong durability.
index optical fiber greatly reduces jitter for enhanced
clarity and definition.
connector keeps fiber in optical allignment for maximum
use with DVD, CD, MiniDisc, DACs, S/PDIF, and Dolby Digital
precise fiber optic connection delivers higher sonic performance
than standard interconnects.
spectral attenuation for optimum signal admittance and low
velocity of propagation for lower time smear.
low-loss fiber delivers clean, clear sound with enhanced
and isolation and to prevent digital emissions.
