Masterpiece of Sound
Through the merging of ingenuity and tireless dedication, a group of accomplished craftsmen and audio enthusiasts have unveiled a sonic masterpiece dubbed "Hera".
Inspired by the respected goddess Hera, known for her royal presence and dominating influence in Greek mythology, this creation represents an embodiment of divine sound that transcends the boundaries of conventional audio experiences.
The emergence of Hera represents a significant leap forward in audio, primarily due to a breakthrough advance - the introduction of palladium-plated silver-gold OCC material.
The harmonious fusion of palladium, silver and gold reveals a symphonic world that will captivate even the most discerning audiophile.
At the heart of Hera's narrative is the meticulous composition of materials that reads like a testament to innovation and mastery. The ensemble of materials in this thread includes Palladium Plated Silver-Gold OCC, Superior Pure OCC Silver, SP-OCC Silver-Gold Alloy and Palladium Plated Silver.
These ingredients form the core of Hera, with each element carefully selected to ensure a harmonious acoustic masterpiece.
At the heart of Hera is the ionic splitter - a true work of art meticulously forged from CNC anodized aluminum. This masterpiece pays homage to the iconic Ionic column of Greek architecture, whose 12 sides symbolize the 12 gods of Olympus. A testament to our relentless commitment to improving every facet of the listening experience, this splitter embodies the fusion of craftsmanship and innovation.
The Hera is made using SP-OCC (Superior Pure OCC) technology to create the purest silver. This is the purest silver cable ever released.
The extraordinary Satin Special Structure II, which has always been exclusive to the flagship - the Zeus - is now officially used on the Hera together with Satin Special Structures. It was developed from Satin Special Structures and Type 4 strands. The result is that the new structure not only has properties similar to Type 4 strand, but was also developed into a strand layer - Geōmetria:
- The outer layer consists of stranded bundles of SP-OCC material.
- The next layer is the combination of stands that cover the Kevlar cushioning core. These strands inside have larger dimensions than those in the outer layer.
Therefore we can refer to them as Geōmetria Multi-sized Stranded - Satin Special Structures II. Each inner and outer strand is covered with insulation to protect it from oxidation. Finally, this structure brings the better efficiency for signal transmission, better attenuation.
Another remarkable highlight is that in addition to the normal 26AWG cable, we also use the refurbished 26AWG+ structure, which is larger with the same cross-section and offers better signal transmission. The 26AWG+ has a significantly larger conductor cross-section than its predecessor and offers even better signal quality for audiophile setups.
The best conductive plugs
As a high-end product line focused on optimizing signal transmission, each Hera is equipped with the best quality plugs and connectors. For the connectors we use our proprietary Satin 2-Pin TeCu/PEEK and MMCX TeCu/Teflon with a very high transmission index, with an IACS of up to 93% compared to normal 27% brass IACS connectors from other brands.
When it comes to the connectors, Satin also carefully selects the best connectors on the market, including the 2.5mm/3.5mm Satin palladized ULTIMATE copper (99.9% pure copper) receptacle for a excellent transmission efficiency.
Copper is normally softer than brass, but ULTIMATE COPPER offers the same durability as brass despite its high purity. We also use the 4.4mm plug from the famous Pentaconn brand, which is made of OFC copper.
All 3 types of these 2.5mm/3.5mm/4.4mm jacks are made in Japan and achieve excellent transmission index up to 100%-101% IACS compared to normal ones 27% IACS brass connectors from other brands.
