Cardas IRIDIUM interconnects | Combining a star quad arrangement with our proven Multi-Stranded, Golden Ratio Scaled Litz Copper Conductors, Iridium achieves the perfect balance of detail and warmth. Natural treble is blended with a smooth midrange and quick bass response for a very musical interconnect. Longtime Cardas users will recognize Iridium’s physical resemblance to our classic Microtwin Interconnect and Twinlink Speaker cables. And they’ll appreciate the performance enhancement. After more than 20 years as mainstays in high-end audio, those cables were the succeeded by Iridium in 2017. The Iridium cables are evolutions of their predecessors, with improvements in dielectrics, and greatly enhanced flexibility and feel. With Iridium, natural treble is blended with a smooth midrange and quick bass response for a very musical interconnect. The Iridium cables are the most attainable products in our lineup to feature Golden Ratio Stranded Litz conductors. In a Litz conductor, every copper strand has a non-conductive enamel coating that must be burned off with flux & a solder pot prior to termination to a connector. There are performance benefits that come with these conductors, including the mitigation of skin effect. However applying the Single Poly Nylon coating to our copper increases material costs, and termination of Litz conductors is labor intensive, so it is not feasible on our entry level products. Assembled by hand in Bandon, Oregon.
