Cardas Clear Interconnects is the continuation of George Cardas’s “pursuit for perfection”. Clear is the geometry of their Golden Reference interconnect, but highly refined. Clear is current, state of the art dielectrics and metallurgy. Clear marries the two with an ultra fine, stranded, tubular conductor. Clear is the vision of perfect geometry.The metallurgical advancements and metal testing techniques that have evolved from this project are finding applications far beyond anything George Cardas has ever imagined. Insights into the basic conductor dielectric relationship have lead to a new frontier of understanding and an associated patent fro Cardas Audio, but it is the dramatic silencing of the cables themselves and the completely unimaginable improvement in depth and clarity of sound that was the real reward. Clear will be George Cardas’s most enduring statement. Cardas Clear 1.0m RCA/XLR Interconnects: $2,020 US Retail.
