Following years of extensive listening tests to top quality cables used in the aerospace industries, The cable used to compose this exceptional interconnect, has been expertly selected in order to achieve the highest possible standards employed by the Lunar interconnect.
The Lunar interconnect pair contains four 21 AWG main copper alloy conductors for each channel
(8X21 AWG for both channels). The main conductor's insulation is made of Teflon™ (PTFE) and
fully screened in two layers:
(three braided screens per channel in total). A special arrangement was done in order to lower the
stray capacitance of the complex shielded cable.
This unique shielding structure ensures that the internal wires, carrying the delicate music signal
receive total protection from external influences-
In sonic terms, the benefits are clearly defined against the same arrangement of cable without the
secondary heavy braiding. The multi layer configuration decreases the noise floor and enables the
perception of even the most delicate nuances of live music.
Pseudo balanced configuration: The screens on the Lunar cable serve as a genuine shield which
directs the picked-
The Lunar employs two balanced cable construction per each channel, allowing the use of two
Main conductors for hot, and another two main conductors for return, while screen serves as a protective shield.
Triple RFI & EMI protection:
The main pair of twisted conductors in each of the internal cables constructing the Lunar, is made of a special, aerospace grade copper alloy carefully selected after extensive listening tests for its superb sonic qualities and durability. Unlike regular copper wires which tend to deteriorate to some degree after bending, the special alloy maintains its metal structure.
This unique copper alloy has a supreme resistance to oxidation, which ensures the cable's longevity and long term performance quality. In addition, the copper alloy wire comprises a silver content which allows for better bonding to the special high purity tin solder (with 6.4% silver and copper content) used to make this superb interconnect.
The interconnect insulation is made of Teflon™ (PTFE), PTFE is the best insulation material used in the cables industry which has the lowest dielectric absorption.
Using Teflon™ (PTFE) as insulation is a prime consideration in Hi-
The low dielectric absorption of Teflon allows locating the main conductors in the
Lunar cable in a very tight configuration -
Teflon is also highly durable and can withstand extreme temperatures variations and mechanical pressure conditions without any risk of deterioration.
The PTFE chosen for the Lunar is the extruded rather than the foamed type, since the former is much more robust and maintains the cable structure through cable bending and other mechanical pressures. All this benefits mean that (Baring severe abuse) the Lunar will not suffer any wear or depletion in sound quality or over many years of usage.
The cable connection point to the RCA plugs is filled with a special anti-
The RCA connectors used are top quality WBT Nextgen™ 110 Copper plugs, with 0.5μm Gold plating over pure Copper contacts and specials dielectric polymers which enable very low self capacitance of 2.4pF and 1G Hz bandwidth. These RCA plug have been found to be highly superior in sound to than many other RCA plugs tested, while the sonic benefits of using the plugs in conjunction with the Lunar cable are more pronounced than with other cables.
The Lunar is directional interconnect: The source side is marked with the logo "AR Sound Lunar"
The Lunar offers a highly open and transparent sound signature with a very deep bass, while highs become extremely natural and crystal clear. It allows for a clean, very fast and solid bass region, free from distortion or time smears.
The multi layer shielding produces an extraordinary dynamic range: Exceptionally
low noise enables the perception of even the most delicate nuances apparent in live
music. In Forte passages the music blooms and opens with a huge dynamic range exhibited
by the Interconnect. The musical detailing flows effortlessly, in a natural manner,
without any emphasis on any part of the frequency audio spectrum. The Lunar exhibits
a spectacular sound stage and depth which enables the ear to pinpoint the voices
and instruments in the orchestra. Superb sounding Mid frequencies -
