SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS
Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of distortion. The surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail guide for both the electric fields within a conductor and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, fewer impurities, fewer grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.
