XLO Debuts UltraPLUS™ Cables

1/6/2012 • Ultralink/XLO Products, an innovative and prolific manufacturer of award -winning audio and video interconnects, cables, power products and accessories, is excited to introduce a new cable line called UltraPLUS.

UltraPLUS cables - at dealers in March - are updated replacements for the original and popular Ultra™ Series and were modeled on the popular Reference™ cables using XLO's effective "exoskeleton" Field Balanced™ Winding Geometry with all -PTFE dielectrics, core structures and jacketing.
UltraPLUS incorporates many of the innovations and technologies that made XLO famous, a new benchmark in quality, affordable, high -performance cables. Rather than 6N - six -nines - laboratory -grade copper UltraPlus is composed of single -filament, solid -core PC -OCC - Pure Copper Ohno Continuous Cast wire - with an attractive black and purple jacket. XLO significantly improved the already low self -inductance of the hand -terminated 24k direct gold -plated RCA or proprietary XLR connectors. You'll hear more deeply and feel more connected to music than ever before! And everyone will appreciate their competitive pricing.
Pick up an XLO UltraPLUS cable and take a close look at its winding geometry. These Integrated Field -Balanced™ surface/diving winding techniques minimizes frequency -related phase -shift by reducing the thickness of each conductor grouping plus the diameter of each individual wire within the bundle to no more than twice the penetration depth - the depth within a wire that signal passes. In this way all frequencies pass through the entire thickness of the wire avoiding the signal -layer stratification effect.
Also notice what XLO calls the controlled "quasi -random" surface/diving winding of each wire bundle. It ensures no wire has what can be called a "normal" position within the grouping thus avoiding any "normal" phase -shift characteristics. Topologically speaking the cable has no surface or center and so frequency -related phase shift is effectively canceled allowing XLO cables to work better with a greater number of components.
UltraPLUS cables include Single -Ended and Balanced interconnects, Speaker cables, a Phono cable (available late Q1 2012), Coaxial Digital, AES/EBU Digital, Prices start at $150 for a half -meter single -ended interconnect.

UltraLink UCubes are a hit in Europe and Asia. Their small size and great sound are the perfect remedy for small homes and offices. The 'Cubes are also gaining momentum in the 'States!
"The beauty of the UCube lies in its simplicity: elegantly simple good looks; ridiculously simple to set -up; simple good sound for your laptop; and simply a bargain at $149. You bet, I'll simply recommend them for folks wanting an easy way to make their laptops sound better on the move," says Tyll Hertsens of InnerFidelity.com.

PureLink - HCE III TX/RX: 4K HDR over HDBaseT Extension System w/ Control and Bi-Directional PoE

The HCE III Tx/Rx HDBaseT™ extension system offers full HDMI 2.0 compliance supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K@60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. Featuring PureLink's proprietary Pr©cis codec, a light compression technology, the HCE III can transport Ultra HD/4K, multi-channel audio, and High Dynamic Range (10 bits support) content over a single CATx cable. The HCE III provides HDMI extension up to 130 feet (40 meters) at Ultra HD/4K and up to 230 ft. (70 meters) at 1080p over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio, CEC pass-through, bi-directional RS-232 and IR control, and PoE - all with zero loss and zero noise. The HCE III Tx/Rx also supports Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio plus LCPM (up to 192 kHz). Additionally, the low profile "slim box" enclosure design make the HCE III ideal for limited space installation environments, such as behind flat panel displays and video walls.
