The Mahone 2 Straight 1.5m
by Zavfino 1877
The Mahone tonearm cable was carefully designed and manufactured using fine strand OCC copper coated in a PE dielectric. All 4 cores are evenly matched with an identical conductor count and size. Cores are tightly twisted followed by a mylar/copper drain for excellent EMI/RFI rejection.
The Mahone comes standard with our ZV88 straight DIN, or TAD-2R DIN for right angle terminations.
New to the 1877 lineup the Mahone provides crystal clear transfer, portraying Jazz vocals controlled but natural and presenting classical performances with all the depth and diversity the composer intended.
The Mahone like all of our cables goes through our new Ultra Sonic cleaning process where we run the raw copper through a water bath that is super charged to burn away dirt, oil, particles and impurities on the surface of the wire. This Ultra Sonic Bath also has the added unique effect of giving our cables a pre-burn sound that could take hundreds of hours to achieve through normal use.
