The Neotech silver/gold alloy is a brand new product! While alloy wire has been produced before, this is the only one made using the Ohno Continuous Casting (OCC) method, which produces a far superior wire to normal drawn wire. The OCC silver/gold alloy wire is further customized for me, with a solid-core conductor, teflon insulation and an undisclosed silver/gold ratio.
This cable has many of the positive attributes of UPOCC silver with a more realistic tone and warmth. A strong point with this cable is tone… UPOCC silver is amazingly accurate but the tone is a little on the thin side, the silver/gold alloy has a warm and amazingly realistic tone that is superior to any other wire I have used. The UPOCC copper ground wire makes this cable more affordable and gives it a warmer tone vs the D4.
The D3.5 version upgrades the connectors to what is used in the D4, and it’s performance is closer to the D4 as a result. Both RCA and XLR upgrades are significant.
