Van Den Hul C5 Hybrid WBT RCA pairs R730
« on: November 26, 2017, 10:07:54 AM »
I have a few sets of new old stock WBT connectors. 
They are a special kind and only fit certain cables. 

I can make 4 pairs.  Custom lengths if needed. 

1m pair is R730



Add R115 per half metre for longer lengths.

I'm currently using the VDH C5 and I'm very happy with them, tempted to take a 1m pair for my other system, my only question, been a hybrid cable does it not need a special termination or not or what would be the difference between these terminations and the originals?

Both are great connectors, these lock. 

The carbon part making things Hybrid is not actually attached to the connector.  Either via solder or crimp on these or the vdh factory ones.  The carbon connects to the metal conductors by being moulded on them.


I used to terminate lots of 103 and source Hybrid way back when Ambiosonics were the importer. They used to import bulk cable and terminate
Locally.  Just not the first and second with carbon main conductors.

These are selling out quick.  Folks taking multiples at a time even.  Nearly all gone now.
