The ETI Research Nexus XLR Connector offers the outstanding quality you would expect from ETI Research. Both the male and female connectors are made from machined Copper. Many XLR Connectors on the market are a brass type that offers poor conductivity and will impede the quality of the audio carried through the cable and eventually to your ears.

Other brands will state they are made with Copper, and while this may be true, it’s likely only on the male External Line Return as machining female connectors from Copper is expensive.
ETI Research’s premium technique is to CNC machine the female connector not roll from flat copper like many other XLR connectors on the market. This allows the precision needed for sufficient surface area contact between the male and female connector pins, guaranteeing you nothing but the best possible audio quality, whether recording music or running a long balanced audio cable for versatility.
The NEXUS XLR Connector was made for the ease of updating your existing audio, video, or stage lighting cable. Simply cut off the old connector and screw on the NEXUS XLR, as all three wires can be screwed if needed. A versatile product, the capability of soldering is still available for those who would prefer to utilise this method.
The ETI Research Nexus RCA Connector has taken a new direction for us in the premium RCA Connector market. While we are the originators of the Minimum Mass Star grounding philosophy, we believe we can make more conventional RCA Connectors that offer many of the same attributes, which so many have come to depend on for absolute sound quality.

In theory, an RCA Connector should allow audio signal to transmit with little interference or effect. However, so many RCA Connectors are made from poor conductive metals such as Brass, which can alter and degrade the signal to cause a brittle and harsh sound.
The Nexus RCA Connector is a premium RCA product that does not fall into this lower-grade category. ETI Research insists on the use of OCC Copper for the Signal Pin, which has an IAC Rating of 102%.
To ensure the durability needed for constantly plugging this premium RCA Connector in and out, the smooth, classy body of the Nexus is made from Tellurium Copper. This guarantees the integrity of the plug for years and years of use, with no drop in audio quality transmitted or the durability of the product’s exterior.
