Key features of ZL Technology

Barrier free conductors

Traditional soldered or clamped connections between terminations and conductor create two resistant barriers (solder has much greater resistance than copper or silver). Our direct, high temperature melt welding (1000o C), without solder, removes two obstacles in the signal path by melting terminations and wire conductors into a single, seamless material.

Permanent contact pressure via heat-treated beryllium-copper terminations

Contact resistance is a critical factor for signal transmission. Higher contact pressure and a larger contact surface mean less contact resistance and better signal transfer. Traditional bronze, pure copper and phosphorous-copper terminations cannot provide sufficiently secure and long-lasting contact pressure. Our precision-milled, slit, heat-treated beryllium-copper terminations provide maximum contact surface and powerful contact pressure for minimal signal loss – for life.

Mu-metal shielding for true protection from EMI

While all other audio cable manufacturers use copper and/or silver shields for signal cables, Allnic uses ‘Mu-metal’ as braided shield for its interconnect and digital cables (RCA & XLR) – a world-premiere in the audio industry.

Traditional copper and/or silver mesh shields provide effective protection against electrically generated noise, but they are ineffective against magnetically induced noise. This is because magnetically generated interference freely penetrates both copper and silver. Only Mu-metal (a nickel alloy material) can protect the audio signal from both electronically and magnetically induced noise. Test data show that Mu-metal shielding reduces electromagnetic noise to less than 1/30th of what braided copper shield allows, down -30dB in comparison.

No more loosened binding posts

With our patented double-bladed speaker terminations, there is no need to go behind your loud speakers every month to re-tighten binding posts. Our unique double-bladed spade terminations minimize contact resistance and will not loosen, even when subjected to severe speaker vibration: no need to re-tighten binding posts for years.

Mid-Range Control Technology – MRCT®

Allnic considers an exaggerated midrange to be a clear indicator of inaccurate signal transfer through a cable, and the most formidable distortion to overcome in cable design. Allnic’s MRCT is the result of meticulous listening and measurements to select carefully formulated metal plating for slight midrange “braking” and heavier wire gauges for accurate low frequencies, as well as to ensure control of capacitance for provision of stunningly realistic high frequencies.

Reviews

Adding up more depth, more recorded ambiance, more bass, more textural diversity, more transient fidelity in the time domain and finally improved power conversion... I wasn't at a loss but serious gains from lots of (lower) losses. Prior flavour shifts with cable assignments had mostly played along the axes of hard/soft, bright/dull and shiny/matte to register as primarily sideways moves. But Allnic's ZL loom had unceremoniously leapfrogged into a higher octave of resolution and recreation of space. After sixteen years on the job, I'd been had in a bigger way than I thought I still had room for.
