Van Den Hul The Waterfall Interconnect


The WATERFALL Hybrid is Van Den Hul’s third interconnect based on their own FUSION Technology. The amorphous alloy of three metals makes for a conductor that is free from inter crystalline boundaries, being the main cause of sonic harshness and harmonic structures in other metal cables.

The Waterfall

The design of this balanced interconnect is based on the award-winning D-102 III Hybrid. The signal is sent through two identical conductor pairs with a braided screening around them. When applied in unbalanced situations (RCA connectors) the big advantage is that we can connect this outer screening on one side (the ground-end) to earth and have it floating on the other side. This was any spurious signals from outside are efficiently blocked without any possibility of interference with the signal path. Together with the already mentioned Fusion Technology. it makes this interconnect very hard to beat in quality as well as in value for money. The Hybrid design and the brown HULLIFLEX jacket further improve the durability of this interconnect for many years to come. Available with RCA or XLR connectors
