Entering the Realm of the Sublime
in a great while a product comes along that redifines state-of-the
art. The Mexcel Series from Acrolink meets this criteria. Employing
a radical new approach to cable design, Mexcel Series cables allow
listeners to encounter prodigous amounts information previously hidden
in the recordings they have been listening to for years and to have
a more deeply fulfilling listening experience then they ever imagined
Miracle in High Tech Cables, the Mexcel Series Debuts
of the most remarkable features of the Mexcel Series is its high frequency
transmission capability. Acrolink has managed to increase the frequency
response clear out to 18 GHz! While the frequency response of other
audio cables available on the market is limited to, at best, 1 GHz,
the MEXCEL series, with extremely low variance in AC resistance, has
achieved revolutionary wide bandwidth response.
Entirely New Wire Technology
create this new series, MEXCEL insulated strands were developed using
stress-free 7N copper for the inner and outer conductors. MEXCEL is
a new enameled wire developed by Mitsubishi Cable Industries, Ltd.,
which has a rectangular shaped cross section. In the past, it has
been difficult to apply insulation film evenly over the four corners
of a single wire, so round conductors have been used out of necessity.
Mitsubishi has developed the epoch-making MEDIS electro-deposited
insulation system, which is similar to an electro-plating of the insulating
resin. Unlike round conductors, rectangular conductors eliminate space
between wires when wound, making it possible to manufacture high density,
super high performance coils. The new ACROLINK MEXCEL series has been
developed jointly by Mitsubishi Cable Industries, Ltd. and Acrolink.
High density braided wires are used for signal conductors as well
as shielded cables.
type of cable falls into a category called "litz" wires
in the field of audio. The cross sections are rectangular and densely
braided. The sum of the cross section areas of strands made of rectangular
wires is larger than that made of round wires. It has the effect of
suppressing high frequency response deterioration caused by the skin
effect. By braiding rectangular MEXCEL insulated strands densely,
the outer conductors suppress the radiation of signals to the outside.
Using rectangular strands will make the surface area larger than round
strands with the same size cross section. Transmission of signals
throughout the cross section is also possible thereby further suppressing
the skin effect.
type cables have a threefold covered coaxial construction (one sheath
and two shields made of different material) with perfect countermeasures
for external noise caused by electromagnetic waves. In the shielded
two-conductor type, rectangular MEXCEL insulation strands made of
high purity stress-free 7N copper are braided into both conductors
and shields. In speaker cables, the semiconductor layer of insulation
material suppresses the generation of static electricity caused by
friction of the insulation material due to vibration and external
noise from electromagnetic waves.
special resin, used in the space and defense equipment for its extremely
low dielectric constant, is used for insulation. This resin is not
frequency and temperature dependent, so signals do not deteriorate
regardless of frequency range and ambient temperature.
rare variant of polyurethane resin is employed for the outer sheath.
These specialized materials, coupled with precise construction and
design, have yielded high quality audio cables far exceeding MIL specs.
Transmitting information in unprecedented high density, the Mexcel
series will enable the listener to realize the full potential of today's
ever improving high-end high fidelity equipment and enter a new realm
appear on all cables to indicate the proper orientation of connection.
