Spade Retail Pack
Spade retail packs contain 4 spades of either gold or silver plated copper. Also offered is the pure copper spade with no gold or silver plating.
Unplated fine Silver (99.99%) or Tellurium Copper only. No Brass, no Nickel. Clean, unrestrained conductivity for the purest listening experience.
Elegant geometry creates a low mass conductor for reduced capacitive & inductive reactance, while high strength polymer parts minimise EMF, EFI & RFI influences.
Low mass for reduced capacitive & inductive reactance.
A locking mechanism that is independent of the & the perfect single point of contact for transfer of an intact audio signal.
Oxygen-Free High Conductivity Copper (OFHC) with Goldflashing or Silver plating.
Optimized mass, contact area, and thickness for reduced reactance, solid bass, and uninhibited electron flow for smooth detailed music reproduction.
Solder or crimp connection
The ETI Bayonet Plug™ is an elegant solution providing a faster, cleaner signal of high purity and detail. First, we use a conductive pin of ideal thickness and mass to minimise skin effect problems.
The locking mechanism is positive and secure but a separate (and dedicated) part of the design that leaves no room for sonic degradation. Other manufacturers incorporate the signal conductor into the locking system. Immediately sonic performance of competitor connectors is compromised.
The conductor pin is machined from either Tellurium Copper (over 90% IACS) or pure Silver (106% IACS) to ensure maximum conductivity. This provides up to 320% greater conductivity than Gold plated brass plugs, resulting in enhanced electron flow, improved signal integrity, and higher resolution.
Competitor designs, even expensive ‘high-end’ ones, use a composite consisting of brass or Phosphor bronze as the main conductor (at 28% the conductivity of Copper) with Nickel and Gold over plating. These metals can be unacceptably detrimental. The ETI Bayonet Plug™, like the ETI BulletPlug® utilises Gold flashed Tellurium Copper or pure Silver for optimum conductivity.
The spade connectors are the newest connectors to be offered. Quickly proven to be deserving of the ETI brand these spade lugs are available as pure OFHC Copper, Gold or Silver plated.
Geometry – Length and thickness optimised. The full signal is always transferred without loss or addition.
Mass – Optimised thickness and plating ensures seamless, fast signal transfer with no skin effect to be detected.
Metallurgy – The highest conductivity copper available – OFHC Copper. Innovative, industry-leading Silver microplating implemented by global leaders in the science of plating and conductivity.
Material – One, smoothly pressed conductor that will bond to wires with solder and crimp methods.
ETI Bayonet Plugs and Spades provide your loudspeaker cables the best opportunity for high end performance.
