Pangea Audio's New Flagship Audio Interconnect with Advanced Multi-Gauge Conductor Design
Pangea Audio's Premier SE audio interconnect has been a bestseller since the day it was introduced. Our customers have considered it to be the number one unbeatable affordable analog audio interconnect on the market, thanks to Jay Victor's design and his use of high-grade materials. Now there's a brand new flagship Pangea Audio Premier analog cable that brings even higher performance and musical enjoyment, while still keeping the price highly affordable. Wait until you hear the Premier XL cable in your system.

In creating the Pangea Audio Premier XL audio interconnect, Jay Victor applied all the knowledge to the task that he had gained in over forty years of designing high-end audio cables. From the conductors to the overall design, the Premier XL is a significant upgrade from the popular Premier SE interconnect cable. And its performance-to-price ratio is off the charts.

Multi-Gauge Conductor Design
Just like the Premier SE audio interconnect, the new Premier XL features Cardas Grade One Copper conductors – the purest and best-sounding copper on the market. This time, however, Jay upgraded the conductors using a Multi-Gauge Conductor Design. After years of experimentation, Jay discovered that this particular Multi-Gauge Conductor Design produced better sound than using a traditional single conductor.

What’s Jay's formula? He won’t reveal his secret. He says he’s using one conductor for the higher frequency and another for the lower, but that is an oversimplification. The proof is in the listening, and here the Premier XL performs better than any other cable in its price class, offering greater transparency and more detail, especially in the highs and lows.

Premium PE Air Tube Insulation
Both the signal and the return conductors are insulated with PE air tubes, which, until very recently, were previously found only on much more expensive audio cables. This manufacturing technology has improved, and Pangea Audio is now able to use these advanced insulators, while keeping the price tag affordable.

The PE air tube manufacture is far more difficult than standard PE insulation. The cable must be processed more slowly to prevent the air tube from collapsing during this process – which is why this type of insulator is otherwise only used on the most expensive audio cables on the market. This type of insulator is far superior to other types because air is the ideal insulator.

Superior Triple-Layer Shielding
Premier XL cables feature three layers of shielding from RFI and EMI noise. These layers consist of a silver-plated copper braided shield, an aluminum/mylar foil shield, and finally a carbon-filled PE shield. This last item, the carbon-filled PE shield, is a recent innovation and provides another layer of shielding for an even quieter cable without compromising cable flexibility.

While more is not always better, triple-layer shielding is far superior to dual-layer shielding, because the middle layer provides the ideal pathway to drain unwanted radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic (EM) noise – thus maintaining the purity of the audio signal.

Premium Prime 750 RCA
The premium Prime 750 RCA connector used with Premier XL features a special ultra-low mass design that takes best advantage of the fine properties of exotic metals, while avoiding technical problems like eddy currents that are caused by using higher mass metal contacts.

Prime 750 has an ultra-low-mass, hollow, direct-gold plated Tellurium Copper center pin and ultra-low-mass direct-gold plated beryllium copper spring-type ground contacts. Instead of a heavier metal ring, Prime 750 uses an advanced polymer insulator to hold the connector together – further reducing the amount of metal required in the connector. The outer shell or cover is made from non-magnetic brass treated with a tough-as-nails scratch-and-chip-resistant black chrome plating.

Factoring in these connectors along with the Multi-Gauge Cardas Grade One Copper conductors, the PE Air Tube Insulation, and the triple layer shielding, Premier XL audio interconnects feature more advanced technology than other cables selling for as much as twice the price.
