Hosa Technology has introduced the new Edge Series cable products, and they will be on display at the upcoming NAMM show in booth 5590.
New Edge microphone cables utilize Neutrik XX-series connectors. Manufactured with gold-plated contacts for corrosion resistance, a Zinc die-cast housing for solid reliability, chuck-type strain relief for maximum cable retention, a boot with a polyurethane gland to prevent cable kinking, and an ergonomic design that ensures easy handling.
They also employ 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors along with polyethylene dielectrics and a 95 percent OFC braided shield. This reduces resistance and capacitance for maximum signal transfer and crystal-clear high frequency transmission while providing maximum noise rejection.
New Edge speaker cables also employ Neutrik connectors that offer precision machined, one-piece contacts for signal integrity and structural rigidity, chuck-type strain relief, and a sleek, ergonomic design. They incorporate 12 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors that reduce resistance and provide maximum signal transfer. Further, they are manufactured with a PVC jacket that adds durability, remains flexible, and reduces the visibility of the cable.
New Edge guitar cables utilize Neutrik X-series plugs, and like the microphone cables, they have gold-plated contacts, a Zinc die-cast housing, chuck-type strain relief, a boot with a polyurethane gland, and an ergonomic design that ensures easy handling. Further, they incorporate 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors, a 95 percent OFC braided shield, and conductive PVC.
“Transmitting sound from its source to the audience with minimal signal loss is absolutely crucial,” says Jose Gonzalez, Hosa Technology product manager, “and this mandate is precisely what the new Hosa Edge Series is all about. Someone at the beginning of the signal chain poured their heart and soul into their music, and the music must reach the crowd with the same quality and impact as originally created.
“Unfortunately, the quality of the cable that transports one’s signal is often overlooked. With the new Edge Series, all of us at Hosa are confident the music will be delivered exactly as it’s supposed to be.”
Edge Series cables will all be available in a variety of cable lengths. MSRP of the microphone cables will range from $45.45 - $145.80 while the guitar cables are priced from $46.50 - $81. Loudspeaker cables will carry pricing from $37.65 - $232.50. All are expected to become available by March, 2014.
