Unlike the MU-7R cables, which are all copper, the MU-8RS cables utilize both copper and silver conductors, and both types are solid; there is no plating or coating involved. In addition, we are told that Allnic’s unique EMI/RFI blocking MU-metal shielding on the MU-8RS has been doubled relative to that in the MU-7R. These differences slightly increase the diameter of the MU-8RS relative to the MU-7R cables, but flexibility is essentially the same. Both versions bend well, though can’t be considered “cooked spaghetti”: you do need a few inches behind your gear
All the other elements of Allnic’s ZL Technology are maintained in the MU-8RS, too, including the custom-made beryllium copper connectors with their quartered split pins for tight coupling that won’t work loose, and the use of 1000 degree Centigrade super-hot welding to join the conductors and the connectors.
Standard length is 1m at $3995. Additional lengths are $300/0.5M.
MU-8RS – Silver Interconnects – XLR
The MU-8RS interconnect cables feature silver and copper conductors and heavier Mu-metal shielding among other proprietary features. In addition, all the elements of Allnic’s ZL Technology are employed.
Zero Loss Technology defined: Allnic Audio’s specialty technology for eliminating audio cable signal loss by minimizing three resistances: Linkage Resistance, Contact Resistance, and Wire Resistance.
Linkage Resistance minimized: Allnic uses 1000 °C hot melt welding of cable terminations and wire; no solder, no clamps.
Contact Resistance minimized: three innovative contact improvement methods, one each for our power cables, speaker cables, and interconnect cables. Furthermore, Allnic does proper heat treatment for longer contact pressure and uses Allnic’s patented double-bladed spade speaker terminations. Every termination for XLR, RCA, and banana is split into multi-faces with an inner elastomer core that constantly applies outward pressure to those faces.
Wire Resistance optimized: After incessant technical test and listening sessions, we have found the optimum thickness of wire for each type of cable.
MRCT®. Mid-Range Control Technology: Allnic considers that an exaggerated, protruding mid-range is the most formidable obstacle to harmonious signal transfer. Allnic’s MRCT uses metal platings for slight mid-range “braking” and heavier wire gauges for low frequency transmission, and controls capacitance to ensure usually evasive superbly realistic high frequency reproduction.
Mu-metal shield: All other audio cable manufacturers use copper and/or silver shielding for signal cables. These are effective only for electrically induced noise, not for magnetically caused noise. Allnic uses Mu-metal as its braided shield for all Allnic’s interconnect, digital and phono cables. Mu-metal shielding provides complete protection from all electromagnetic noise, a world-premiere in the audio industry.
