Micro Mono-Filament technology is a proprietory process developed by the Nordost Corporation. This technology reduces the effect of the insulation material. The sonic result is superb detail, sound staging, and musical reproduction. Micro Mono-Filament uses a thread of FEP which is helically wound over each highly polished conductor. A precision FEP jacket is then extruded over the thread and the conductor. A number of proprietory methods are used in this difficult and extremely precise manufacturing technique that reduces dielectric contact by a factor of more than 80%. Extremely mechanically stable, the conductors are effectively suspended in inert air, preventing oxidation and ensuring perfect signal integrity.
