Note: As an added bonus for Black Friday the new Solvine series has free premium metal splitter options.
- Silver occ litz pure & Copper occ litz pure - fusion / hybrid mix
- More than twice the amount of silver occ litz as in our Solv X hybrid series.
- Equivalent of 18.5 awg x 4
- 16 total occ litz wires
- Half is tri-conductor geometry - 12-cores
- Half is multi-core - 40-cores - carbon infused center cor
- 52 total textile cores, 4 carbon infused cores
- Each polarity utilizes one tri-conductor and one multi-core conductor with a precise mix of pure silver strands to copper occ litz strands. This brings the ultimate
in transparency, while elevating in detail and micro-detail. A benefit of the larger
amount of silver occ litz.
Is this cable right for you?
If you are seeking hands down an extremely transparent window into your system beyond that of only pure copper occ litz, the Solvine is the right choice for you. A fusion or hybrid of silver occ litz and copper occ litz which is able to bring a lower price point and still reap the benefit with the capabilities of the purest silver.
How it's made
Another example of a complex and long labor process, the Solvine is a very difficult and intensive build. All assembly and braiding is done entirely by hand (no machines).
Shown above is the Silver beadblast aluminum splitter with silver carbon fiber inlay.
Currently the Solvine is available in one choice, clear showing copper and silver strands. Stay tuned in the future for other color choices.
You have a 30-day money back policy with your cable, giving a safety net to try the Draug 3 in your system and experience the improvement for yourself. You also have a lifetime transferable warranty. We stand behind every cable that is shipped out.
Every headphone cable ships in our magnetic retail box and custom headphone cable pouch with magnetic snap.

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.
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.
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.
