E-SX4:  Gunmetal aluminum with black carbon fiber
The most compact y-split design for portable audio cables, with an extremely compact, ultra light splitter designed to fit a large cross section of 4-wire and 8-wire cables, with superior finish, style, and utility.  Certain very compact 6 and 8 wire cables will fit, with a little ingenuity.
 
The smallest, lightest splitter in its class.  Weighing just a few grams, the SX4 is the tiniest carbon-trimmed split ever marketed in the audio world.  Eidolic has pared its dimensions and internals down to ensure no excesses.  It is hardly heavier than the usual piece of shrink tubing found on cable y-splits.
CNC machined T6061 aluminum.  The solid aluminum body is lathed from rod stock and fused to a recessed carbon fiber ring in the center, with a machined groove near the top.  All openings are radiused for perfectly smooth edges.  The splitter is 10mm in diameter and 20mm long, with 3mm holes in the top, fitting the vast majority of compact headphone and other cables.  Included is a 7mm gray silicone Eidolic grommet to seal the rear opening.
Ultra fine surface treatment.  This piece of audio jewelry is finely sandblasted for a silky yet tough finish. 
Smooth chamfered edges.  The edges on the top and bottom of the splitter are flat cut & polished, similar to your favorite high-end smartphone.  The ring, front/back chamfers, and the chamfers around the carbon fiber ring are machined after anodizing for a contrasting silver color.  
Seamless pressfit assembly.  No screws or visible seams – a hydraulic process permanently compacts the machined aluminum segments together into a single unit that cannot fall apart.
Tinted carbon fiber and more.  The classic gunmetal/black aluminum scheme is an Eidolic mainstay.  Using automotive grade carbon and fiberglass finishes protected by an outer resin that is resistant to scratches or damage.  Eidolic brings the most exotic color combinations and never-before-seen applications of platings, textures, tints, and fibers.

 

 

E-SX1 (12mm scale): Silver Carbon Fiber with clear anodized silver - good for fullsize and 8-wire ciem cables
E-SX2 (12mm scale): Champagne gold anodized with black carbon fiber - good for fullsize and 8-wire ciem cables
E-SX4: (10mm scale):  Silver aluminum with blue-tinted black carbon fiber: 10mm scale - best for ciem cables or small fullsize cables
E-SXT: (10mm scale):  Hand machined titanium splitter: 10mm scale - best for ciem cables or small fullsize cables

Why OCC?

Used throughout the high end audio industry in most flagship cable products, occ provides the superior quality copper and silver possible today.OCC (Ohno Continuous Cast) is the name given to the casting process developed to help defeat annealing issues and virtually eliminate all grain boundaries in copper or silver with a unique patented process. The OCC casting method uses specialized heated moulds in order to draw a single crystal up to 125 meters in length. With only a single crystal in very long lengths, there is an unimpeded free path for the best possible signal transfer. Along with this superior single long crystal structure, OCC provides copper and silver with the least possible oxides and other impurities. 

Why Litz?

With each strand utilizing a razor thin enamel coating, Litz based wire provides a cable that will last a lifetime (will not oxidize).  Further with each strand acting independently until joining at the termination point, the design negates any bad effects typically associated with normal stranded wire (skin effect, proximity effect, etc.).  As another side benefit durability and flexibility are both increased.  

Combining OCC (purest metal) with Litz design you really have an end result that is the ultimate cable possible today.  

Why Pure OCC Copper, Silver and Silver coated Copper are the absolute best

We go by the numbers using science as the guideline.  All metals have a conductivity rating as describe by the International Annealed Copper Standard (IACS).  All metals are compared against Copper at the 100% IACS rating mark.  OCC Copper is rated at 103% IACS and Silver 106% IACS.  Gold is rated at 73% IACS or 27% lower conductivity as compared to standard OFC/ETP copper (given the exact same amount of each metal).  Therefore it would take a significant amount more Gold to achievethe higher conductivity rating of copper.  

We will never release anything less than OCC copper and will never release any alloys. So what is an alloy?  An alloy is defined as a mixture of two or more different metals, making the original metal less pure with worsened electrical performance than the original pure metal.  An alloy of 1% gold with 99% silver would yield around 89% IACS rating or 11% less conductivity than standard OFC/ETP copper.  While cables made of metals/alloys that are inferior to copper may alter the sound in a specific way, that is not our goal.  Norne Audio will always seek to utilize the absolute best materials (going by the numbers) in our pursuit of the absolute best cables possible today.  We believe that the cables with the best specifications yield the best possible sound of ones system.


 

Please watch the above animation if you prefer a quick visual overview.  


IACS (International Annealed Copper Standard)

The IACS rating is the metric used to describe a metals conductivity as compared to the standard of copper.
First take a look below at pure metals conductivity ratings.  

(1) OCC Pure Silver - 107%
(2) OCC Copper - 103%
(3) Copper (common grade) - 100%
(4) Gold - 73%

Silver is the best there is, in pure form, period.

example:  
If you take a 1"x 1"x 1" cube of pure silver and compare its conductivity to an identical 1"x 1"x 1" cube of gold, the gold is considered 32-35% less conductive than the pure silver.  


Alloys

An alloy, by definition, is less pure than the original pure metals it is comprised of.  Alloys are in existence largely for strength / hardness properties and are not meant for high end audio cables.  When you alloy a metal, say gold with silver, you quickly decrease its purity and IACS rating.  Even at just 1% gold alloyed with silver the IACS rating drops down well below plumbing grade copper.  Alloys in the audio world came about purely as competition increased and there was desperation for new ways to try and market a cable to the uneducated masses.

Norne Audio will always utilize the purest form of a metal and will always use pure silver occ litz, pure copper occ litz, spc occ litz or mixes thereof.  Our goal is the design that possesses the absolute top specifications of the highest possible quality.
