“The Prodigy is the mid level analogue interconnect in the Neutralis line up. The design philosophy and the standards in manufacturing that are part of the top-line product (The Proto) are maintained. Closer in performance and philosophy to The Proto than The Prodigy results in a superb sounding product of true reference quality. As with all Neutralis products it competes with products way beyond its asking price."
Designed to have minimal influence on the transmission of the audio signal. Totally handmade; from the first step of polishing the high purity copper conductors to finished product. Can be made to specified lengths.
Ultra low capacitance.
Three things determine capacitance in a cable. They are length, geometry and dielectric material.
Neutralis interconnects have ultra low capacitance for the following reasons;
Literal air dielectric is used between the two conductors in the vast majority of the design (Over 90% in this particular design). In the minute areas where air dielectric is not feasible, low dielectric constant materials are used. Even the outer body of the interconnect uses low dielectric constant material.
Spacing between the conductors.
Skin-effect occurs since the high-frequency currents tend to flow on the outer "skin" of the conductors whereas lower frequencies are more uniform in current distribution across the conductor cross-section. Correct gauge of conductors result in all frequencies flowing more evenly in the conductors, thus minimising skin-effect. Neutralis carefully selects conductor gauge to facilitate optimum frequency response across the spectrum.
