DHC has created the first truly balanced, grounded, & isolated (originally for AK240) balanced cable for connectivity to amplifiers with dual 3-pin XLR inputs.  We also offer this cable in a 3.5mm stereo mini –> dual RCA configuration for use with single-ended amplifiers.

This cable is a special edition of our astounding, neutral, and detailed Chaperone interconnect – for complete information, please click here.


  • Chaperone2 design – our extremely isolated cryo OCC copper type 2 litz interconnect, featuring direct carbon composite secondary insulation on each wire for protection against a wide variety of interference, cotton dampening , and custom foil & copper braid shielding.  
  • Abbatron 3-pin XLRs or Valab RCA.  The Abbatron XLR is our new favorite, an American-made stealth-black masterpiece with the best materials we’ve seen yet – direct gold plated tellurium copper solid machined pins inset in a flawless matte shell.  
  • A&K ground connection – plug the 2.5 balanced plug in, then connect the secondary 3.5mm stereo plug into the A&K’s single ended 3.5mm jack to ground the cable to your balanced amplifier.  We now offer our true flagship interconnect cable…the Chaperone3 is the most advanced interconnect we have ever offered.It features a 22awg “Fusion” design with many unprecedented features adding refinement and detail.  There are seven OCC silver litz bundles and seven OCC copper litz bundles arrayed in a cylinder around a core of semiconductor material, which disperses and drains excess energy and static buildup, converting it to heat.  Each wire has a conductive carbon secondary insulation for wide-bandwidth noise protection and dampening, with additional cotton dampening stabilizing the internal braid.  There are dual foil shields instead of one, around a OFC copper braid shield.  Like the Complement2, each channel is isolated into its own independent cable.  To order just pick Chaperone3 under wire type below, with the corresponding length to the cable length option chosen.
