Prion4 & C15: Extreme solutions for Benchmark AHB2, Raal, Susvara, Electrostats, Speaker-amped headphones, and more
Our personal systems have evolved heavily of the course of the past year as new ways of powering difficult headphones to their limits have come to the fore. Many, like Raal, Abyss, and Susvara, require high current transfer to reach their potential, making Prion4 and Complement C15 ideal. The lines between speaker and headphone systems, speaker and headphone amplifiers, are currently blurred and a special subset of our cables can make the most of this unprecedented opportunity.
The following gallery is a demonstration of our capabilities in building the most extreme, uncompromising solutions to connecting flagship headphones to amplifiers and sources. These cables will be customized during an after-sales chat via email to make sure they look and feel their best. Special ultra-soft sleeves with metallic threads, legacy connector styles currently out of stock, and 3D-printed precious metal accent decorations are available to craft one of a kind cables.
4 pin male XLR to quad bananas or spades: Speaker amplifier to Raal transformer interface Ti-1A Ti-1B
Raal reaches new heights with its transformer interface; with male XLR input it can be driven by both traditional headphone amplifiers and speaker amplifiers.
4 pin male XLR to 4 pin male XLR or 6.3mm: Balanced or single-ended headphone amplifier to Raal transformer interface Ti-1A Ti-1B
With optional right-angled 4 pin XLR housings from Neutrik, and optional Peerless pure silver pin/rhodium/Teflon XLR contacts, we can create a low-profile interconnect between the Raal interface and the balanced headphone amplifier.
4 pin female XLR to Speakon stereo 4 pole: Benchmark AHB2 power amplifier to 4 pin XLR headphone
Drive Susvara and friends to their limits, directly from the AHB2’s low resistance Speakon outputs, which provide a measurably better connection reflected in actual SINAD measurements.
Spades or bananas to 4 pin female XLR: Speaker amplifier to 4 pin XLR headphone
Power current-hungry headphones with top speaker amplifiers like AIC-10 or WA234.
4 pin female XLR to dual Speakon mono 2 pole: Dual mono Benchmark AHB2s to 4 pin XLR headphone
Stereo speakon to Stereo speakon: Benchmark AHB2 power amplifier to switch box or other input
4 pin female XLR to 4 pin female XLR: Raal ribbon jack output (Ti interface, Raal direct drive amplifiers) to 4 pin balanced headphone
Raal gear uses male XLRs for output instead of the female 4 pin jacks used on most balanced amps. This cable — an ultra high grade version of the interconnect that comes with Raal amplifiers — allows Raals to be used with standard balanced headphone cables.
Spade or banana speaker cable to Speakon stereo 4 pole: Benchmark AHB2 to speakers with optimal connection
The DHC Peptide speaker cable, with 1260 strands/43 cores/type 6 OCC copper litz, is the most extreme speaker cable on the market and can now be directly connected to AHB2’s speakon outputs. For more on this formidable cable, go here.
LTA Z10E dual 6.3mm output to dual 4 pin XLR output: 3D printed case with rhodium 6.3mm and 19awg OCC silver wiring
A special project for converting the front headphone outputs of this superb amplifier to more convenient 4 pin XLR with no compromises. While the amp is still single ended, this sleek 3D printed case is the best way to use this amplifier with existing balanced cables.
Benchmark AHB2 switchbox – switch between speaker output and headphone output with no compromises.
Many hours of hand work and our best wire and parts. Connect to the AHB2 with an XLR to speakon or speakon to speakon interconnect.
