Bibacord Digital Cables
We have released the Mark II version of our digital interconnect cable. The metal foil and shield are replaced by a double layer of braided carbon sleeving connected to a female banana for external grounding. Conductors are solid core OCC copper with cotton insulation. A porous dampening material is applied under the carbon sleeve resulting in a much more flexible cable than the previous version.
Both balanced AES/EBU and unbalanced SPDIF share the same design, only a slight difference in conductor spacing to give correct impedance.
The new Mark II version is even more open and airy, improving the sense of transparency and space.
For balanced AES/EBU we have found Furutech FP-601/602 rhodium XLR to be superior to every other brand/type of XLR we have tried. For unbalanced SPDIF we use WBT 0152 nextgen silver RCA or Oyaide silver BNC. The digital cables are available in lengths from 1 meter and up, in steps of 50 cm.
