ETI Research Brio Spade Connector

This combination of high-quality materials and Rhodium plating adds up to a superior audio connector designed to accurately transfer an audio signal with crystal clear clarity.

The Brio Spade Connector is available with two different size Brass housings to better fit on all types of speaker cable. ETI-Research’s Brio Spade is designed to satisfy the most discerning eye for audio componentry and quality of workmanship.

In terms of spade connectors, you would be hard pressed to find a higher standard than those offered by ETI-Research. You wouldn’t settle for anything less than superb sound quality being emitted from your audio systems, and you won’t have to with the exemplary standard set by ETI-Research’s plethora of premium connections.

The ETI-Research Brio Spade Connector’s innovations and refinements include:

  • Major components made from Tellurium Copper with Rhodium plating for superior conductivity and long-lasting durability;
  • Excellent current transfer due to thickness of the copper connector;
  • Housings made from Brass for superior vibration damping and high EMI/RF noise rejection; and
  • The choice between two different size housings to fit most speaker cables.

You can rest assured this connector will supply your customers with years of musical enjoyment and no complaints due to degradation of materials.

This combination of high-quality materials and manufacturing from one solid piece of copper offers what we believe is the finest Banana Connector available on the market. Take a look at pricing for the Brio Banana Connector and inquire today to put together a premium-quality audio package to suit your needs.

Please note due to the design to have maximum surface area contact to the Binding Post for the first time please “screw” it in. The tight fit  will mold to the Binding Post and allow maximum surface area contact.

The ETI Research Brio Banana Connector’s innovations and refinements include:

  • The Copper connector is CNC machined from one piece of Copper, with as much material removed to allow for minimal resistance and capacitance yet able to transfer the suitable current;
  • Housings made from Brass for superior vibration damping and high EMI/RF noise rejection;
  • Your choice of two housing sizes; and
  • Rhodium plating for superior conductivity and long-lasting tarnish-free durability.

Brio XLR Connector

The new ETI Research Brio XLR Connector is an advanced step for ETI as it has taken some time for CNC machining to get to the point where the female connection can be machined to the thickness ETI Research knows is optimum for the finest sound quality possible.

ETI Research Brio XLR Connector

For some time, XLR connectors with some type of Copper have been available, but many of the male pins have too much mass, which causes excessive capacitance and subsequently alters the sound. Some of these XLR connectors, while having Copper male connectors, were still formed with brass on the female side. The reason why is the hollow nature of the female pin was difficult to machine and a lot cheaper to make by using the original pins formed in Brass moulds.

ETI Research was still not interested because this defeated the purpose of using Copper for superior sound quality. The next step was to get female connectors made out of Copper. This was achieved by rolling flat Copper to make the female connection. This still resulted in problems when it came to uniformity because the surface contact area for inserting the male was not consistent and could make the connection unstable.

An additional problem was surface thickness. ETI Research has found the best-sounding thickness for low-voltage connectors. Going thicker or thinner negatively influences sound quality. We feel the best connector has the least effect on sound and that is what ETI Research constantly strives to achieve.

So we waited until we could manufacture what we felt was simply the best XLR connector on the market. The ETI Research Brio XLR Connector has both the male and female connectors CNC machined with optimum wall thickness and Rhodium Plated for excellent durability in long-term usage.

The ETI Research Brio XLR Connector’s refinements include:

  • Copper machined connectors (both male and female)
  • Silver Plated without any Nickel
    Teflon Dielectric
  • Brass housing for superior vibration damping and EMI/RF noise rejection.
  • Short housing to help in the XLR cable not extending too much for better cable management

 

Accommodates cables up to 13mm, or with insert installed 9mm.

ETI Research Brio RCA Connector

ETI Research is the originator of the star grounding design and has a lower mass than any of the copies on the market. The hollow design enables walls with a thickness of 0.6mm on the signal pin, giving you the capability to solder the wire at the very top, which eliminates the signal from going through as much mass as on other star grounding designs.

The Brio RCA Connector is made from Tellurium Copper and is Rhodium plated for both superior conductivity and long-lasting durability that will not tarnish even after years on plugging and unplugging the connector. The housing is made from Brass for superior vibration damping and high EMI/RF noise rejection.

This combination of high-quality materials and Rhodium plating adds up to a superior RCA connector designed for use by manufacturers and consumers to enhance the range of audio cables on the market by allowing the signal to pass through with a minimum of alteration. The end result of ETI Research’s hard work and development is pure, unadulterated sound.

Innovations and refinements of the ETI Research Brio RCA Connector include:

  • The signal pin is made from 1100 Series Copper with an IACS rating of 102%;
  • The return pin is made from Tellurium Copper not only for great conductivity but also to handle the pressure and abuse of connecting and disconnecting for years on end;
  • Rhodium plating that will not tarnish and has long-lasting durability;
  • Housings made from Brass for superior vibration damping and high EMI/RF noise rejection; and
  • ETI Research’s innovative star grounding design for the best possible audio signal transfer.
