Aurealis Audio's R3 series of interconnects have been upgraded. The upgraded series will be known as the R3i.
The new ETI Research Kryo RCA will now be standard on R3i silver cables. This is a superb RCA with thick pure silver plating over tellurium copper. The body is made from coated solid brass which superior shielding. The result is that the noise floor is even lower than previously and the background is truly blacker. The ETi Link RCA will be standard on the copper cables. This is another new offering from ETI Research and has a gold-plated pure copper centre pin and aluminium body. Both RCAs use the single star grounding on the negative pin to keep capacitance to a minimum.
The cables have been further upgraded by the addition of two conductor wires per channel. This adds signal strength and some extra detail and enhanced sound stage presentation. Shielding on short lengths (under 1 metre) will continue to be done in copper foil and bare silver wire. For interconnects longer than 1 metre, a tinned copper braid will be used to provide effective shielding over the longer length.
As with the previous R3 series, four cables are available in the R3i series. Copper and silver solid core, and copper and silver Litz. Two new cables cable are under-development. These will combined silver and copper wire in a single cable.
The R3i series of interconnects can be used anywhere in the system with excellent results, but unlike the R1 interconnects, they can also be used:
This is a very smooth and rich sounding cable with very good transparency and detail. Because of the high purity of the Neotech UPOCC copper it is tonally a touch on the warm side. Good separation across the sound stage with a depth of presentation.

Compared to the solid core copper version of this cable, the R3i AgS:

The R3i CuL is a tonally warm and fully detailed cable. The Litz wire carries a very broad frequency range which results in more detail, better sound staging and and improved bass end compared to the solid core version of this cable.
This is a diabolical cable that requires a very well-balanced system to work with, one that is capable of resolving the wonderful detail it delivers. It is incredibly transparent. It's sound staging is immaculate. Bass is precise and deep, and the high end has remarkable clarity. But unlike many other cables it does not filter anything. For example, if you are worried about noise floor in your system then it is possible that this cable will reveal the existing noise floor in more detail.
