The Xhadow Precision XLR is easily the finest XLR in the world, designed with respect for the audiophile perspective: Precision, purity, simplicity and elegance.
The main barrel and rear-nut are lathed from pure aluminum rod-stock and anodized in "Xhadow Gray" for a durable and non-conductive finish. This assembly houses an internal strain relief that is machined from brass.
Into this barrel assembly fits our Gender-Modules - either male or female plugs. Each one has an outer passive shell machined from brass and mirror plated, a machined Teflon dielectric, and pure copper machined contacts that have been silver-plated. Each contact allows the termination of wire to be completed via solder, set-screw, or both. This gives the end-user a tremendous amount of flexibility while also allowing them to guarantee a fantastic contact interface with their wires. Each Gender-Module is engraved with the "XHADOW" name along the top arc of the shell's front border, indicating top-orientation.
The fit of these connectors is smooth but very strong, with a tremendous amount of contact pressure to ensure perfect and consistent signal passage with a minimum of contact resistance.
Finally ... an XLR that meets audiophile standards!
