***Having used many brands of interconnects over the years, I find Dan A Digitals to be , whilst expensive, about as state of the art as you can get. 

**Currently Boeing does all the testing for the purity levels in the silver of these cables**

OPENâ„¢ Interconnect Cables
Analog signal cables suitable for reference stereo and multi-channel audio

Dana Electro Acoustics OPENâ„¢ interconnect cables are made form pure silver that is drawn to form AWG 24 wire and then insulated with Teflon . The insulated silver wires make up a cable where conductors are formed in [tri:form]â„¢ geometry and connected in balanced single ended configuration (for RCA terminations) or balanced configuration (for XLR /Cannon terminations).

The pure silver is tested after forming into the wire for purity at an independant laboratory, and must be at least ten thousand times more pure than pure sterling silver to conform to OPENâ„¢ interconnect cablestandard. Each cable set has a certificate of silver purity, issued after the metallurgical tests for each batch, currently carried out at Boeing Aerospace laboratory.

The importance of using pure silver is that silver is the best conductor at room temperatures, providing the least resistance to the signal transfer. The extraordinary purity of OPEN silver gives unrestrained and uniform propagation of electric field and to flow of electrons within the conductors.

OPENâ„¢ - the closest conductor to no conductor at all.

The insulator around the pure silver wire is genuine Teflon (trade mark of Du Pont). Use of genuine teflon material gives assurance of continuous high quality from batch to batch. All insulators inhibit fast change of voltage within conductors, and consequently affect the sound in audio cables.Teflon has one of the lowest influence on the sound (together with dry paper, dry cotton and polypropylene).

OPENâ„¢ - the closest insulator to no insulator at all.

[tri:form]â„¢ cable geometry provides very low interaction between conductors, giving the least influence to transfer of audio signal. This feature is measured as cable capacitance, and measures 30pF per meter of OPEN cable. We do not know of any other cable that has such low capacitance.

OPENâ„¢ - the closest to having no capacitance at all.

All OPENâ„¢ interconnect cables are shielded from interference that may be present in the surrounding space, in order to provide fine resolution and detail to even the quietest music passages.

OPENâ„¢ - the closest to no background noise at all.

Balanced single ended configuration means that both signal and signal return conductors are treated as signal wires (and not as signal and ground), and both are made from pure solid silver. Most other cables are of coaxial design, which is best suited for antenna cables. For audio, the best RCA design is OPENâ„¢ balanced single ended.

OPEN â„¢- designed for audio.

Balanced signal consists of two signal wires, and above listed [tri:form]â„¢ features are ideal for XLR / Cannon interconnect cables.

All OPENâ„¢ interconnect cables are very flexable, despite being made from solid silver, thanks to [tri:form]â„¢ geometry.

Sleeve and vinyl both look pretty much new. Vinyl is pristine, and shiny, with no surface marks visible. Typically quiet Jap pressing, and as per all other Masterpiece King pressings, this one sounds amazing. No better gateway drug into Blue Note goodness. Amazing hard bop, one of my favourites. Only selling as I have the music matters version. Priced to reflect condition.  // $50   Sonny Rollins - Vol. 2 (Mono) // Blue Note Classic Records Pressing 2006 (BN 1558-MONO-200G)   NM/VG+  https://www.discogs.com/Sonny-Rollins-Volume-2/release/2132244 As above, a rare classic records gem. QUIEX SV-P technology, 200G weight, and deep groove. Glossy and sturdy, stoughton tip-on jacket. Sleeve appears as new on this one too. Very small (2-3mm) scratch on side 1 close to the outer edge causes a few audible tics, hence the VG+ grade. Otherwise looks clean and glossy and plays with no issue. Beautiful mastering, with a rich sound. “…a timeless session and a milestone in jazz history …" this recording has it all; giant artists, fantastic performances and musicianship at extremes. Selling as I have an original.  // $70   Sonny Rollins - Sonny Rollins Vol. 1 (Mono) // Blue Note Japanese King Pressing 1977 (GXK 8016)   VG+/NM  https://www.discogs.com/Sonny-Rollins-Sonny-Rollins/release/6731146 No OBI, but with liner notes in Japanese. Sleeve shows some signs of age, with mild corner dings and spine wear. Vinyl clean and glossy. Great early Blue Note session for Sonny. Straight up hard bop. Features Donald Byrd on trumpet, and Max Roach on drums!. Also known as Vol. 1  // $45   Lee Morgan - Indeed! (Mono) // Blue Note  Japanese Toshiba Pressing 1983 (BLP1538)   VG+/NM  https://www.discogs.com/Lee-Morgan-Indeed/release/4873421 No OBI, with liner notes in Japanese. Record looks brand new. Clean waxy black surface. Quiet throughout. Light tics only heard during silence between tracks. Very spacious soundstage for a mono recording. Sleeve shows signs of wear and staining on spine and back (>30 years old after all). As far as the content, this was Lee Morgan’s debut as band leader on Blue Note. He was only 18 at the time. Great lineup including Philly ‘Joe’ Jones on drums and Horace Silver on piano. First class bebop here. Only selling as I have a Music Matters 45RPM copy. // $45       _____________SOLD_____________________   Dexter Gordon - Our Man In Paris (Stereo, 2xLP, 45RPM) // Blue Note Music Matters Pressing 2012 (MMBST-84146)   NM/NM  https://www.discogs.com/Dexter-Gordon-Our-Man-In-Paris/release/3771727 I will not spend much time expounding on the quality of music matters releases, but will say that these are the BEST you will hear these albums sound, outside of 1st pressings (which would literally cost you thousands). The pinnacle of audiophile grade vinyl. This MM album is now out of stock and CANNOT be purchased new anywhere. It is unlikely to be repressed. I happen to own two copies of this, don’t ask me why. This particular copy is close to perfect. Shiny laminated gatefold cover (some scuffs if carefully scrutinised). The vinyl looks a little strange with some ‘staining’ (came from the factory this way), but playback is dead quiet with absolutely no clicks or pops heard. 45 RPM allows the music more space to breathe. Also helps avoid dreaded inner groove distortion. This album is different for Blue Note, in that it was recorded in Paris. An all-time classic, cementing Dexter Gordon’s status as one of the finest tenor saxophonists around. 5 tracks, all standards, including an incredible rendition of ‘A Night in Tunisia’. // $120   John Coltrane - Blue Train (Mono) // Blue Note Classic Records Pressing 2005 (BN 1577-MONO-200G)   NM/NM  https://www.discogs.com/John-Coltrane-Blue-Train/release/2109750 An exceedingly rare audiophile pressing of this all-time jazz classic. Classic Records are unfortunately no longer in business. QUIEX SV-P technology, 200G weight, and deep groove. Sleeve appears new. Sounds amazing, like the band is in the room with you. No need for me to discuss the music here. Only selling as I now have the Music Matters SRX version. // $160    Kenny Dorham - Afro-Cuban (Mono) // Blue Note Japanese Toshiba Pressing 1983 (BLP1535)   NM/NM https://www.discogs.com/Kenny-Dorham-Afro-Cuban/release/3709133 No OBI, no liner notes. Record and sleeve look immaculate. Again, clean waxy vinyl surface without scuffs or scratches. Quiet playback. One of my favourite Blue Note titles. Pure fire. Two sides of contrasting styles. Side 1 has 4 tracks, all with an afro-cuban percussion heavy feel. Side 2 is more straight up hard bop. Played by an all-star group that includes Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, JJ Johnson, and the one and only Art Blakey. Hard to find in this condition. Again, only letting go as I have a Music Matters SRX copy that I prefer. // $70   Lee Morgan - Candy (Mono) // Blue Note Japanese Toshiba Pressing 2008 (TOJJ 6507)   NM/NM  https://www.discogs.com/Lee-Morgan-Candy/release/6717621 As new. With OBI and liner notes in Japanese. Remastered, and reissued only in Japan as part of Blue Note founder Alfred Lion’s 100th birth year Anniversary. Limited copies, no longer available for sale new. Great set, very enjoyable and accessible even for those new to jazz and hard bop. Can’t go wrong with this lineup. // $80    The Amazing Bud Powell - The Scene Changes, Vol. 5 (Stereo) // Blue Note Japanese King Pressing 1978 (GXK 8075)   VG/NM  https://www.discogs.com/The-Amazing-Bud-Powell-The-Scene-Changes-Vol-5/release/5469488 No OBI, but with liner notes in Japanese. Sleeve shows some signs of age, with a bottom left corner ding, and spine wear. Vinyl clean and glossy. Piano driven jazz trio. Widely considered Bud’s finest release. Amazing showcase of Bud’s talents on the ivory keys. Even playfully dabbles with a classical piece or two somewhere in there.  // $30    Kenny Burrell - Midnight Blue (Stereo) // Blue Note Japanese Toshiba Pressing 2008 (TOJJ 6518)   NM/NM  https://www.discogs.com/Kenny-Burrell-Midnight-Blue/release/5093648 As new. With OBI and liner notes in Japanese. Remastered, and reissued only in Japan as part of Blue Note founder Alfred Lion’s 100th birth year Anniversary. Limited copies, no longer available for sale new. In my top 10 Blue Note albums of all time. An essential part of any music lover’s collection IMHO. Smooth, accessible guitar driven blues-jazz at its finest. Love the addition of Ray Barretto on the Conga.  // $80      Horace Silver - Horace Silver Trio (Mono) // Blue Note Japanese Toshiba Pressing 1983 (BLP 1520)   NM (shrink)/NM  https://www.discogs.com/Horace-Silver-Horace-Silver-Trio/release/7392891 With OBI sticker, and liner notes in Japanese. Sleeve still in shrink, basically looks new. Vinyl is clean and glossy, with no surface marks visible. Quiet pressing, sounds amazing. An interesting early release from the illustrious Horace Silver, with a particular focus on Art Blakey on drums and Sabu on percussion. Pretty rare early release, and in near mint condition. Selling as I have the VMP anthology version.  // $40
