    Shielded Solid Silver Conductor Interconnect Cables


    Bob's Devices continues to break the price barrier by offering top quality audiophile cables at 1/3 the price of competitive products. All our cables are hand crafted, fully balanced, individually tested and terminated with top of the line Cardas Audio SRCA and the new Cardas XLR connectors. For those of you who prefer RCA locking connectors, we offer the Vampire LRCA-8 Locking connectors with spring loaded center pin.. The interior connections are resistance soldered and dampened in pure Teflon wrap.


    The silver and silver clad interconnects are terminated using WBT silver solder. As always, we back our cables with our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. All Bob's interconnects feature a balanced type of architecture with internal conductors carrying the + and - signal with an additional braided conductive shield that is connected on one end only. This provides shielding effectively rejecting RF and EM interference without creating ground loops (say goodbye to hum).


    Three lines of cables are offered: cables with Solid Silver conductors, cables with Silver-clad copper conductors and our limited production vintage cables constructed with copper conductors.


    This Solid Silver custom terminated interconnect is Bob's top-of-the-line cable. It features a pair of pure silver 22 awg conductors and triple-shielding consisting of a silver plated OFC braided shield coupled to an Aluminum/Mylar shield and a Teflon PTFE shield. Covering the shield is a braided nylon sheath encased in a clear PVC outer jacket. Internally, this cable has 5 polyethylene air tubes separating and isolating the conductors.


    Bob's silver cable is custom terminated in our lab with your choice of the best Cardas SRCA or the new Cardas XLR connectors.


    Bob's custom terminated silver-clad crystal copper interconnects feature a balanced design architecture using Polyethylene insulation and a pair of silver plated copper conductors (SP-OFC) that are insulated with Foamed Polyethylene, and wrapped together by a double screen shielding consisting of a tinned OFC braided shield coupled to an Aluminum/Mylar shield. This wire architecture is modeled from the wire Koetsu uses to wrap their Platinum magnets. We believe the results will thrill you with exhilarating highs, tight bass, and romantic mids - very much the Koetsu paradigm. These interconnects not only shine with tube equipment but do especially well with a solid-state phono stage and preamp.


    The silver clad copper wire uses the UP-OCCP (Ultra Pure - Ohno Continuous Casting Process) which is a continuous-casting method that was developed by Professor Ohno of the Chiba Institute in Japan. This wire is free from impurities (up to 99.99998% pure copper and silver). Accordingly, it is able to transmit electrical signals faster, and with less distortion than ordinary OFC and silver wires.


    Bob silver-clad copper interconnects are custom terminated in our lab using the very best Cardas SRCA or the new Cardas XLR connectors. Vampire LC-8 locking connectors are also available.

    Wildcat is sure to help you scratch deeper into your favorite records. Select metals, exact geometry, and low-distortion insulation offer significant improvements over almost any stock phono cable.


    SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER CONDUCTORS (PSC): Perfect-Surface Copper has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication. When high-purity low-oxide copper is kept as soft, pure and smooth as possible, it becomes a wonderfully low-distortion conductor. For over 30 years AudioQuest has pioneered the use of superior metals; yet even we were surprised by this huge leap in performance. PSC clearly outperforms previous AQ metals that cost over ten times as much. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat dirty, harsh sound. Solid conductors are fundamental toward achieving Wildcat's very clean sound.


    FOAMED-POLYETHYLENE INSULATION: Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Wildcat uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.


    TERMINATIONS: Wildcat's gold-plated RCA plugs use a proprietary design that eliminates the distortion caused by the extra contact inside most plugs. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability. A combination of these major ingredients, and many more subtle details add up to explain how Wildcat can sound so clean, clear and dynamic.

    Beautiful build quality


    Audiophile componentry


    Handcrafted in the USA


    Flexible cartridge loading options


    Angling for an affordable yet world-class vacuum tube phono stage? The hunt is over! The spawn of the Manley Steelhead - one of the world's greatest phono preamplifiers - Stereophile Class A Recommended Component and The Absolute Sound's Preamp of the Year, has arrived. The Chinook epitomizes the sound of the Steelhead. Designed for the music lover, not the switch tweaker.


    Like the Steelhead, each channel employs the two triode sections of a 6922 for amplifying duties with highly accurate passive RIAA equalization networks. In the Chinook, the signal is then directly coupled to another 6922 dual triode serving as the output driver in a White Follower configuration. This output stage circuit is our favorite because of its super-low output impedance and beefy current-driving capabilities. It can drive long cable lengths and difficult loads, tube or solid-state. Bring it on. No wimpy cathode followers here!


    Setting up the Chinook couldn't be easier. There are two internal settings for optimal gain: 45dB for Moving-Magnet cartridges and 60dB for Moving-Coil cartridges. Set it and forget it! The back panel contains DIP switches for adjusting the input resistive and capacitance loading values. 31 possible options between 26 and 800 Ohms plus 47k Ohms and 7 capacitive loading choices between 50 pF and 350 pF provide flexibility to match any cartridge and fine tune the tone. Audiophile-grade and time-proven componentry is used throughout, embodying Manley's dedication to seductive sonics, combined with the reliability that professionals around the world depend on. At just about a quarter of the price of our revered Steelhead preamplifier, the Chinook's focus is on elegance of design, careful execution, efficient construction, and appreciable quality.


    Designed and built in California, the Chinook exemplifies Manley's commitment to our local community and to a simple, clean, and quiet signal path. The Chinook demonstrates the supreme linearity of vacuum tubes while providing the flexibility needed to embrace any turntable setup. Everything from the most exotic 180 gram audiophile pressing to 25 cent thrift-store classics will be reproduced accurately and musically.


    Don't let this one get away! Hook a Chinook!

    Lehmann Decade Phono Stage


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Lehmannaudio is has built a reputation and unrivalled customer satisfaction on the sound and build quality of phono stages. The ambitious Decade effectively fills the gap between the Black Cube SE II and the Lehmannaudio reference phono stage, the Silver Cube. In the Decade, like in all Lehmannaudio devices, top notch technology is used that normally can be found only in price ranges far above.


    The input stages of the Decade can also be found in top notch mixing consoles and high class microphone preamps of professional studio electronics. The highly accurate, passive RIAA equalisation network is placed between two linear gain stages and uses precision MKP capacitors. This results in a very stable soundstage reproduction and pin point localisation of instruments.


    The maximum gain of 66 dB is well enough for even very exotic low output MC cartridges. Impedance load adaption is practically infinite as with all Lehmannaudio phono stages: there is a free slot for a custom impedance so that every existing MC cartridge on the market can be loaded properly. Input capacitances are adjustable as well.


    Soft bass roll-off filter and PWX II power supply.

    The Decade is the first phono stage by Lehmannaudio that offers a Soft-Bass- Rolloff-Filter and gain selections accessible via toggle switches at the face plate. Both, gain and filter functions, are executed by studio grade relais inside the unit.


    The Decade is powered by the PWX II, a power supply especially developed for the unit which is downward compatible with the PWX. This means that Black Cube audio sections can also be connected. The second power outlet at the PWX II is made especially for that purpose. The PWX II power supply with chokes at critical places powers the Decade with very clean DC power and - like the Silver Cube - is connected to the audio section via a shielded cable with Neutrik XLR plugs.

    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Handcrafted in the USA


    We debuted to the world a killer frikkin' cool phono stage at CES 2001. It was called, aquatic naming theme continuing, The Steelhead®, as it is an upstream device and has a very clever MC variable load auto tranny that we designed and our very own Manley Magnetics department executed (which makes the MC stage so very clever). Iron=transformer=steel makes sense to me...


    It has two Moving Coil inputs with selectable impedance load 25, 50, 100, 200 and 400 Ohms via Mr. Clever Steelhead transformer/autoformer. It also has variable and selectable Moving Magnet input impedances too 25, 50, 100, 200 Ohms and 47 kOhms. Very nifty is the selectable-dial-able-in-able-from-the-faceplate-able capacitive loading for all three of the MM & MC inputs 0 to 1100 picofarads in 10 picofarad steps. Very cool! Equalize baby! TEN picofard steps! Wow! Now you can really dial this in for perfect cartridge matching with ZERO penalty. None of this switching detracts from the sound quality or adds any extra anything to the signal path. Rest assured.


    It's got six tubes. 2 x 6922 plus 4 x 7044 or 5687. It's got a big honkin' volume control. It can drive an amplifier directly if you want, if you don't do digital. Hey and if you happen to have three turntables set up, we give you 2 x MC and 1 x MM selectable inputs! It's got variable and fixed volume outputs. And All-tube really low Z tube buffered outputs. Like inherently 20 Ohms plus the little 47 Ohm OK drive those high capacitance audiophile cables why doncha resistor, so it's real output impedance is only 67 Ohms. No wanky cathode follower (oh bor-ing) output here like the other guys. We got your real low impedance all-tube outputs right here! It will drive anything and everything. Long cables, no problem.


    It's got selectable gain 50, 55, 60, 65dB on a switch that even auto-mutes as you change it so no nasty bangs. Gain switch markings are referred to from the input of the 1st active electronics at 1 kHz to the fixed output @ 10k load, regardless of whether source is MM or XFMR stepped-up MC. It is not really practical to include MC step-up gain on the front panel markings due to the variable SOURCE impedances of the MC cartridges and the variable LOADING that the input XFMR will have on any given cartridge. All of this total MC gain variability should be confined to about 3 to 12 dB of range though. XFMR step-up gain plateaus as the load Z on a given MC cartridge is optimised...producing no VOLTAGE gain but in fact a bit more POWER gain... All this means you should set a load Z which sounds best with your particular MC cartridge and adjust gain to suit your system's operating level. Whatever you like. You will not blow anything up.


    (Bottom line: there is plenty of gain... enough to do justice to your fave lo-output MC cartridges).


    It's got a mute switch. It's got a just turn it down while I cue up so I don't throw my woofer cones across the room but I still want the same volume I was listening at before I flipped the side DIM switch. And what goes with DIM better than SUM which would be the MONO button... It has a killer hyper-regulated outboard power supply that plugs in on the huge-est connector you ever saw. And you can just hit the standby button to keep everybody off while you take a small holiday to Tahiti. A backlit MANLEY STEELHEAD illuminated badge reflects back to vinyl-days-of-yore while the millions of BLUE LEDs remind you that this is modern tube engineering design, baby!


    The VARIABLE Outputs are controlled by the precision film dual NOBLE® volume control. They are SMOOTH action these days as the fashion went against the detented ones.


    This is a tweak-o-holic tube-lover's dream...

    Black Cube: Cult object since 1995

    Since the market introduction in 1995 the Black Cube phono stages by Lehmannaudio have become cult objects for analog oriented music lovers. Countless positive reviews and awards, and an unrivalled customer satisfaction worldwide document this truly exceptional success. The Black Cube is produced in small numbers and sonically superior to mass industry products.


    The Lehmannaudio Black Cube phono stage is compatible with practically all available cartridges on the market from High Output MM to the lowest output MC cartridges. Apart from the standard switch settings there is one onboard slot that can be fitted with a custom impedance to supply perfect termination even for the most exotic cartridges. Since 2006 there is a separate hard wire custom impedance slot that needs no DIP-switch to be activated. Customization possibilities are infinite. No more need for expensive impedance plugs!


    Newly developed input stages

    The newly developed input stages used in the Black Cube can also be found in top notch mixing consoles or in well known professional microphone preamps. The entirely passive RIAA equalization network is realized with high precision MKP capacitors. All resistors are of the low noise metal film variety. The switches for gain and load settings have gold plated connectors.


    Because of the small outer dimensions the Black Cube can be placed next to the turntable. This minimizes loss due to cable lengths. The low noise regulated external power supply is connected with Neutrik XLR connectors to the dedicated DC power supply.


    Lehmannaudio always pays special attention to details: the cable between power supply and audio section is shielded. The cases of both the power supply and the audio section are made of nonmagnetic materials and the case of the audio section is even equipped with a top cover coated with a special anti-resonance treatment.

    Lehmann Black Cube SE II Phono Stage


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    We have introduced half a dozen different phono stages to a very demanding market and have built a reputation merely from their performance. The Black Cube SE II comes with top notch technology that points towards higher price points, like all Lehmannaudio electronics.


    The input stages used in the this device can also be found in top notch mixing consoles or in well known professional microphone preamps. The entirely passive RIAA equalization network is realized with high precision foil capacitors to realize an artefact-free transport of microdynamics and room information. The switches for gain and load settings have gold plated connectors for reliable performance.


    A true audiophile phono stage

    The maximum gain of the Black Cube SE II is high enough for even very low output MC cartridges. Cartridge adaption itself is totally flexible because gain and lading can be chosen independently from each other. To top this all off, there is a slot for a custom impedance resistor, so that even the most exotic MC cartridges can be loaded adequately without having to buy expensive impedance plugs. No soldering needed.


    Because of the small outer dimensions, the Black Cube SE II audio section can be placed next to the turntable. This minimizes loss due to cable length.


    Lehmannaudio always pays special attention to details: the cable between power supply and audio section is shielded and ensures flexible placement of audio section and PWX power supply. The cases of both th power supply and the audio section are made of non-magnetic aluminum; additionally equipped with a top cover coated with a special anti-resonance treatment for better suppression of microphonic effects.


    A brand new feature that is built into the Black Cube SE II is the entirely passive bass filter, that is a great help when tayloring the lower corner frequency of the vinyl reproduction to personal needs. 16 different filter curves can be realized.

    The device has even be vastly improved in 2006. A special 30 VA toroidal transformer of the PWX power supply is the main reason for the sonic performance achieved with the Black Cube SE. This transformer is not only overdimensioned but even sports a grounded isolation coil between the primary and secondary coil. The results: much more bass authority, a more liquid midrange as well as more openness. These sonic benefits are without any doubt the reasons that more and more music lovers choose the Black Cube SE right from the start.

    The entirely passive RIAA equalization network of the Black Cube Statement is realized with high precision foil capacitors. Bass coupling between the two linear gain stages is even realized with an MKP type. All resistors are of the low noise metal film variety. The switches for gain and load settings have gold plated contacts.


    Because of the small outer dimensions the Black Cube Statement can be placed next to the turntable. This minimizes loss due to cable lengths. The external AC power supply keeps magnetic interference away from the audio section.


    Lehmannaudio has always been paying special attention to details: the case of the audio section is made of nonmagnetic materials and is even equipped with a top cover equipped with a special antiresonance treatment.

    Beautiful build quality


    Audiophile componentry


    Handcrafted in the USA


    Flexible cartridge loading options


    Angling for an affordable yet world-class vacuum tube phono stage? The hunt is over! The spawn of the Manley Steelhead - one of the world's greatest phono preamplifiers - Stereophile Class A Recommended Component and The Absolute Sound's Preamp of the Year, has arrived. The Chinook epitomizes the sound of the Steelhead. Designed for the music lover, not the switch tweaker.


    Like the Steelhead, each channel employs the two triode sections of a 6922 for amplifying duties with highly accurate passive RIAA equalization networks. In the Chinook, the signal is then directly coupled to another 6922 dual triode serving as the output driver in a White Follower configuration. This output stage circuit is our favorite because of its super-low output impedance and beefy current-driving capabilities. It can drive long cable lengths and difficult loads, tube or solid-state. Bring it on. No wimpy cathode followers here!


    Setting up the Chinook couldn't be easier. There are two internal settings for optimal gain: 45dB for Moving-Magnet cartridges and 60dB for Moving-Coil cartridges. Set it and forget it! The back panel contains DIP switches for adjusting the input resistive and capacitance loading values. 31 possible options between 26 and 800 Ohms plus 47k Ohms and 7 capacitive loading choices between 50 pF and 350 pF provide flexibility to match any cartridge and fine tune the tone. Audiophile-grade and time-proven componentry is used throughout, embodying Manley's dedication to seductive sonics, combined with the reliability that professionals around the world depend on. At just about a quarter of the price of our revered Steelhead preamplifier, the Chinook's focus is on elegance of design, careful execution, efficient construction, and appreciable quality.


    Designed and built in California, the Chinook exemplifies Manley's commitment to our local community and to a simple, clean, and quiet signal path. The Chinook demonstrates the supreme linearity of vacuum tubes while providing the flexibility needed to embrace any turntable setup. Everything from the most exotic 180 gram audiophile pressing to 25 cent thrift-store classics will be reproduced accurately and musically.


    Don't let this one get away! Hook a Chinook!

    Channel Islands Audio is proud to announce the release of our long-awaited PEQ•1 MKII MM/MC Phono Preamplifier!


    Features



    • Ultra-Low noise

    • Ultra-Low harmonic & intermodulation distortion (THD/IMD)

    • Dual-Mono Design for low crosstalk

    • Heavy steel faraday cage for high resistance to electromagnetic and radio frequency interference

    • Rear panel DIP switches for convenient configuration & adjustment

    • 5 Year Warranty

    • Handcrafted in USA


    The PEQ•1 is a versatile design offering outstanding performance with a wide variety of phono cartridge types.


    This new dual-mono design is aimed at music lovers seeking the utmost life-like performance from their vinyl collection. Dynamic and detailed, yet smooth and rich, with soundstage and imaging to create realism rarely heard.


    Power


    The internal design of PEQ•1 starts with a dual AC input (one for each channel).


    When the outboard power supply is connected, the AC is fed to two independent filter/regulation circuits (1 per channel). These circuits feed the L & R audio stages with ultra-low noise on par with the best battery technologies, and without the inconvenience. There is also a Chassis Ground switch to optimize chassis shielding.


    The standard AC supply is an AC wall adapter type with a single winding feeding the L&R circuits.


    This supply is 120V input only.


    Countries with 220~240V mains must use the AC·15 MKII Upgrade Supply.


    The AC·15 MKII Upgrade Supply Features:


    • Large Toroidal Transformer with dual outputs (1 per channel)

    • AC Line Filtering

    • Dual common-mode choke filtering (1 per channel)

    • 120V/240V Selectable Input Voltage

    • Rear Panel Power Switch

    • Detachable AC Input & Output cables



    Audio Circuit


    Input signals are connected via highest quality Cardas™ panel-mounted RCA jacks. The input jacks are routed to two independent mono circuits of identical layout. This assures exact performance from both channels and reduces crosstalk.


    Circuit topology consists of an input gain stage with selectable resistive load, capacitance, gain, and subsonic filter. This gain stage is followed by a passive high frequency cut, then an active bass boost to create the RIAA equalization curve, then to the output jacks.


    Careful layout yields a very short signal path from input to output, and a combination of star grounding power supply components/ground plane for the audio circuits, result in a silent background and immunity to EMI/RFI pickup. The entire circuit board is then housed in a heavy steel faraday cage to further reject outside interference, then inside the attractive aluminum outer chassis.


    Highest quality components are used throughout:


    Cardas™ jacks, Nichicon Muse™ NP power supply capacitors, Vishay™ 2% Polypropylene signal and bypass capacitors, Takman™ metal film & carbon films resistors, and Grayhill™ switches.


    5 Year Warranty


    Enjoy peace of mind with our comprehensive 5 year warranty. Full service information is included in the product manual.

    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Manual turntable with build in Pro-Ject Speed Box SE


    Pro-Ject's Xtension 12 incorporates over 20 years of experience in turntable design and manufacture. The Xtension 12 represents their latest technological efforts to address mass-decoupling and resonance reduction. Beginning with the mass-loaded magnetically floated sub-chassis and the precision balanced sandwich alloy platter (recycled vinyl/alloy), the foundation of this system weighs in at a super-heavy 55lbs. Additionally, Pro-Ject employs magnetic decoupling feet to thwart airborne or mechanical vibration from disturbing playback. This mass and isolation creates an environment of extremely low resonance allowing music to emerge from an ultra-silent black background. An AC motor with a two-step pulley drive with Electronic Speed Control maintains perfect pitch and rhythm resulting in inaudible wow, flutter and noise. There's even a built-in spirit level to assist setting the height-adjustable magnetic footers.


    Further reducing noise and vibration is the isolated Sorbothane mounting board for the 12 carbon-fiber tonearm. The conical arm and unified headshell are fabricated from a single piece of carbon fiber to avoid problems associated with standing wave reflections. Single screw fixing of the armtube allows for easy rotation for adjustment of needle azimuth. Additionally the arm is fully adjustable for VTA. A high-performance 123cm phono interconnect cable is included.


    Optional SuperPack includes Sumiko Blackbird Cartridge at a significantly reduced price.

    **All Cartridges Installed Free Of Charge**


    Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took a team of designers headed up by Rega's Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen.


    The Rega team has worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.The new 'Planar 3' is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model.


    New features of the Planar Three:


    RB330 tonearm - Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand new bearing housing, and our latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before.


    • Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated
      arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers.
    • Rega made, new low capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs,
    • Improved lower friction, precision horizontal and vertical bearings
    • New design 100g mild steel balance weight.


    Plinth - High gloss acrylic, laminated plinth, stiffer and vastly improved appearance, ergonomically positioned power switch.Two plinth finishes at launch: gloss black & gloss white


    Double braces - Improved thicker 3mm phenolic bottom brace and new metalised skin phenolic top brace.


    Bearing housing - Re-designed brass main hub central bearing, improved fit and construction reducing stress on the bearing itself.


    Sub platter - Re-designed sub platter, improved accuracy and improved stiffness.


    Platter - New float glass 'Optiwhite' polished rim 12mm - Improved accuracy in manufacture and stunning looks.


    Re-designed foot - New improved foot to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.


    24V motor - Improved new motor control PCB with integration for the addition of TT-PSU for electronic speed change and improved advanced anti-vibration circuit (sold separately).


    Motor cover tray with integrated cooling.


    DB Technology (Double Brace Technology)

    Mass absorbs energy - lost energy equals lost music!


    Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundations of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic original Planar range.


    The new Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a new improved double brace system mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) which forms a structurally sound stressed beam assembly. This rigid plinth design prevents energy absorption and unwanted resonance, which will add unnatural distortions to the music.


    Equally, heavier mass can transfer more unwanted energy, such as motor or bearing noise directly into the rotating record. The use of braces instead of the complete skin allows double thickness phenolic resin in these key areas while providing further weight reduction to the plinth which directly addresses the issue of mass absorption and unwanted energy transmission.


    Hand assembled RB330 tonearm.

    24v low noise motor / 12mm float glass platter.

    Lightweight double braced plinth.

    Precision main bearing.

    Factory fitted Elys2 MM cartridge or mounted with Ortofon 2m Blue cartridge (optional).

    Compatible with the TT-PSU electronic speed change and power supply box (optional).
