Pangea Audio is now shipping four new cables — SE Ground Cable, Premier SE MKII HDMI Cable, Premier SE MKII USB Cable, and Premier XL MKII USB Cable. Each cable is designed for maximum performance and overall reliability over the long term, with solid connections that remain free of corrosion and degradation, year after year.
The selection of new high-performance Pangea Audio cables, all of which are currently available, include:
- Premier SE Ground Cable: Featuring American-made Cardas Grade One Copper, the premium copper used by Cardas Audio, the SE Ground Cable can help alleviate the audible hum that sometimes plagues sonic output from turntables. The cables are made from three 23awg Cardas Grade One Copper conductors with 6% silver plating, twisted into a single 18awg cable. The ground cable can close ground loops, leaving only natural-sounding analog audio that represents the artists’ vision. Premium spades fit most lugs and screws. The Premier SE Ground Cable is available in lengths of 0.5m, 1m, 1.5m, 2m, and 3m.
- Premier SE MKII HDMI Cable: Designed to support 4K and 8K video and the new high-speed capabilities of the HDMI 2.1a standard, the SE MKII HDMI Cable relies on 6 percent silver-plated Cardas Grade One Copper for consistently reliable high-speed connections with any component or computer that includes an HDMI port. Designed by audio industry veteran Jay Victor, the SE MKII’s conductors keep the cable flexible, while silver plating ensures maximum audio and video performance. The Premier SE MKII HDMI Cable is available in lengths of 0.6m, 1m, 1.5m, 2m, and 3m.
- Premier SE MKII USB Cable: Representing the ultimate blend of performance and affordability, the Premier SE MKII USB Cable is Pangea Audio’s response to those who believe quality cables must come at an exorbitant price. The Premier SE MKII delivers high-resolution audio via signal conductors that are made from 23awg 6 percent Silver-plated Cardas Grade One Copper. An advanced form of PE polyethylene insulation that is wrapped in a double shield resists electromagnetic and radio frequency noise. The Premier SE MKII USB Cable is available in lengths of 0.5m, 1m, 1.5m, 2m, and 3m.
- Premier XL MKII USB Cable: Created by audio cable designer Jay Victor, the Premier XL MKII USB Cable represents his vision for a USB cable that removes audible anomalies by separating the power-carrying conductors from the signal-carrying conductors. A distinguishing feature of the Premier XL MKII is its “dual-leg” design, which refers to the way in which power-carrying and signal-carrying conductors are separate over the cable run, meeting only at the connectors. Featuring 6 percent silver-plated 23awg Cardas Grade One Copper mined in Arizona, the Premier XL MKII USB Cable is assembled in a New England factory where it is slowly drawn into conductors by heating it and cooling it slowly, removing internal stresses, and creating overall tough but flexible conductors.
