In the 1940s. Radio Corporation of America developed the cable that would become known as RCA connector. Since then, nearly every manufacturer in the world has relied on this cable to send the audio signal from one componenent to another.
ZU AUDIO and the enjoyment of MUSIC
Zu has been approached many times by hi-fi industry movers and shakers, asking how to reach out to the youth and tap into younger markets. This question reveals just how lost today’s hi-fi industry is. Zu isn’t ‘reaching out.’ We’re living it, making it. Zu is actually reaching out to the older generations, to those in hi-fi that can help bring about a revolution in the return, where hi-fi is restored to its proper place in the home- out from the cave and back to the living room, back to the first or second thing an eighteen year old kid needs in his dorm or apartment. Sure it’s traditionally been a guy thing, but not in the new scene. Girls are into it- the second and third biggest music lovers at Zu are girls, and that’s pretty normal in today’s music scene.
The fragments of hi-fi that remain must embrace the techno and everything else that has come along since Debussy, Hank, Elvis, Dylan, Beatles, Bambaataa, Lydon.... The new scene, where it’s about the music, is looking back at their heritage. They know Miles, they know old country and even the great composers. The new scene gets it. Embrace them and learn from them.
Zu Mission Loudspeaker Cable
Zu Mission Loudspeaker Cable (LC) Mk.II builds upon the great balance of tone and detail of its predecessor [Mk.I] by significantly increasing immunity to electromagnetic interference and static. This is accomplished through the addition of state-of-the-art nano engineered high conductance carbon shielding.
Mission LC Mk.II performs, has a very supple hand and is built to last several lifetimes. With Mission LC’s increased immunity to RF and static the user will experience improved resolution and overall system ease.
Mission LC has excellent resolution and has a tone center right smack in the middle of the music weighted power spectrum. While it performs well on the extremes, it never looses its rock-solid performance in the meat of the music. Mission LC is agile and dynamic but will not highlight or emphasis problems in recordings, your room, or playback rig.
Engineered from the ground up and manufactured in-house, Mission LC Mk.II will give the listener better sound through improved management and integration of conductor, insulation, cabling, shielding, connector, and termination, resulting in a cable assembly that not only improves the sound of the system but feels good to the primitive brain.
Mission LC are built on a signal and power transmission technology originating with Nikola Tesla, an electrodynamics format that allowed for very wide bandwidth and large power transmission. Within the cable’s E&M model, we combine pure U.S. refined and drawn copper with U.S. extruded insulation.
