The Maestro MA2

Many cable companies  ‘trickle down’ their cables ideas and attributes. We do too but we also do trickle up, as in the case of the Maestro MA2 Interconnect...

..whereby the astounding early success of the Conductor CA1 interconnect, putting Ecosse on the world map, demanded that we take the basic structure of the CA1 (copper analog) and turn it into an MA2 (Monocrystal™ analog- that's how we get our nomenclature). All we changed was the copper conductors from UHP-OFC to near perfect zero-crystalline-boundary Monocrystal™. Its success damn near blew us away-so astonishing in its across-the-board appeal has The Maestro MA2 Interconnect become.

Not surprising really when you consider the enviable construction quality and technically unsurpassed (at anything approaching its price point) conductor material that goes to make The Maestro.

Monocrystal™ for superior noise reduction

Not only is the  'going' and 'return' conductor multistrand ultra-pure grain-free proprietary Monocrystal™ Copper, (each single crystal of copper is a massive 1700m long, go figure!) but the tight double braiding of the latter offers-together with the addition screen of Conductive Polymer - 100% protection from environmental 'noise' pollution.

A ‘sandwich’ dielectric of superior quality low-loss Polyethylene and ultra low-loss, low-density, increased-air (best earth-bound dielectric) gas-foamed Polyethylene (FPE+) ensures absolutely minimal signal energy loss down its length.

Our unique Monocrystal™ copper contact points MACH2 RCA phono plug terminations, with proprietary shielding (designed to form a 'Faraday Cage'- a device designed to maximise RF screening), ensure the finest performance available anywhere. Don't be fooled by the claims made by our unscrupulous competitors that they use similar copper plugs - they don't, instead they usually use mere imitation low-transmission-rate (about 28% only) brass!

If you are ready to upgrade your hi-fi or AV system to experience the audible benefits of Monocrystal™ technology, The Maestro MA2 is a necessity. The Maestro is not a cheap cable, but it may well be the least expensive upgrade you will ever make. Its ability to bring you ever closer to the music as the artist who performed it intended it to be heard - in terms of sound stage, clarity, detail, focus, high and low frequency extension and above all realism - is unparalleled at this price point!

We sincerely recommend you to match this cable with one of our Monocrystal™ 'speaker' cables. Thus, for the ultimate audio experience, try it with our MS2.3, MS2.4 or MS4.45 or MS4.7 pre-terminated biwire combination. Complete system synergy may be obtained by checking our cable match table.

The Maestro - already a legend in audiophile circles!

To maintain continuity and optimum conductivity, their contact points are made from Monocrystal™ copper - same as the conductor wire itself (don't be fooled by inferior yet similar-looking brass plugs as used by some of our competitors, these are cheap and nasty!) Both centre pin and the return conjugate bracket (designed to form a 'Faraday Cage'- a device for reducing RFI) terminals or shells are direct silver hard-plated (others use 'flash-gold' plating which is a very thin coating that wears away very quickly and soon looks tarnished-you have been warned!). The plug casing is precision machined from highest quality copper alloy and is deep-plated. This thick casing offers further shielding - effectively a second 'Faraday Cage' - and reduces the ingress and radiation of EMI, ESI and RFI 'noise' even further, to virtually zero.

The interface of shells and casing is one of high mechanical impedance, dissipating energy and rendering microphonic effects negligible.

These shells are designed to perform a 5-fold function:

  1. They provide a terminal to which the return/screen conductors can be firmly crimped and soldered.
  2. They incorporate tiny teeth that grip the cable firmly and evenly around its circumference without compressing the cable and thereby maintain the cable's characteristic impedance right up to the solder joint.
  3. When assembled, they form a Faraday cage, screening the signal right up to and including the RCA socket.
  4. They form a union of high mechanical impedance with the outer casing, dissipating energy and therefore rendering the plug immune to the effects of microphony.
  5. They firmly locate and clamp the centre pin's polypropylene dielectric, which, in conjunction with the outer casing, results in a strong, stable and extremely durable structure.
