Naim Hi-Line Interconnect
The result of this pure development project is the Naim Hi-Line signal cable. Available with both DIN and RCA terminations, its patented Air-PLUG connector is a decoupling device that reduces vibration transmitted along the cable itself, preserving your system’s precious musicality.
- Patented Air-PLUG decoupling mechanism prevents vibration transmission through the cable
- Twisted-pair cable construction consisting of 80 litz conductors surrounded by individual spiral shielding layers of PTFE and Kapton
- RCA or DIN terminations available, plus DIN-to-RCA if needed
Technology & Craft
The Hi-Line Air-PLUG (patented) is designed as a decoupling device to minimise microphonic interference and preserve the integrity of the audio signal. The many different rear sections of the Air-PLUG are clipped together to form a lossy flexible section. The cable is clamped compliantly to the end of this flexible section.
The cable itself was also carefully designed to preserve audio signal integrity so improving sound quality. It is manufactured from twisted pairs of 80 Litz conductors surrounded by PTFE, Kapton and PTFE tape all then enclosed within a semi conductive shield to reduce static charges.
This is then wrapped by two spiral wound copper shields and lapped PTFE tape. Two of these assemblies side by side are then wrapped in layers of PTFE tape and finally a rubber outer covering. This gives a two-channel cable where the signal and RF grounds are held in a static position relative to each other negating any difference in field between them.
About Naim Audio
Naim Audio is a British hi-fi manufacturer based in Wiltshire, United Kingdom. The company was founded in 1973.
Naim began when Julian Vereker started Naim Audio Visual in 1969 and created a sound-to-light box that he hired out to film production companies. His disappointment with the sound of professional recording equipment at the time led him to design his own power amplifier.
Every Naim product is conceived, designed and engineered entirely in service of the sound, revealing a pure experience of music that is as close as possible to its original live source.
Naim believe that the exploration of sound is an adventure that rewards you with a clarity and connection that becomes more powerful the deeper you travel within it. Which is why, every element within their systems is crafted to create a silence around the sound, reducing any interference between you and the intention of the artist.
Let the voice of Naim take you inside the music… Go Deeper.
