Delivering Exceptional
Sonic Performance

IC-3 SE phono delivers exceptional sonic performance for your treasured vinyl record collection. It’s a premium phono IC, with a true custom shop, hand-crafted build and aesthetic that extends the proven performance of our award-winning IC-3 Classic Phono. Outfitted with high-performance silver plated copper Xhadow Precision RCA or XLR connectors, and a premium rhodium plated phosphor bronze Furutech DIN plug, terminated with audiophile-grade solders. The result is a remarkably refined performance that competes favorably against boutique dealer phono interconnects in the $700-$1,000 range.

THE CABLE AT THE CORE

Multiple stranded, silver-coated OFC copper conductors insulated in an ultra-low loss foamed Polyethylene dielectric, in a low capacitance design. 100% aluminum mylar shielding provides immunity to noise, with an upgraded, durable Techflex jacket.

Connector Options

SOUND CONNECTIONS XHADOW PRECISION RCA

Reference level RCA widely considered one of the finest RCA plugs in the audiophile marketplace.  Precision, simplicity and elegance are Xhadow’s hallmarks. The main barrel and rear-nut are lathed from pure aluminum rod-stock and anodized with a finish that is both durable and non-conductive. The contact assemblies are machined from OFC pure copper, then silver plated for a smooth and neutral overall character.   The fit of these connectors is smooth and strong, with a just the right pressure to ensure a perfect and consistent signal passage with a minimum of contact resistance.  **note–more widely spaced female sockets are required to fit the Xhadow RCA.  Inputs should have a minimum 5/8″ from center to center**     

SOUND CONNECTIONS XHADOW PRECISION XLR

Precision, elegant machined art, the Xhadow XLR is considered one of the finest hi-fidelity XLR‘s in the world, and is designed with the audiophile perspective in mind. Made from pure aluminum rod-stock and anodized in “Xhadow Gray” for a durable and non-conductive finish, the main barrel assembly houses an internal strain relief. Into the barrel this fits a “Gender-Module”, creating a male or female plug. An mirror plated outer passive shell houses a machined Teflon dielectric, and pure copper machined silver-plated contact pins, which give a rich, but nicely resolved sonic character. Solder-free set screw terminal option.
