This Premier+ Grade cable has almost 800 copper strands (400 per conductor) of our UF-UHP-OFC -we call this Ultrafine™-Copper™- delicately woven wire-each just 0.07mm diameter. Never before has a cable comprising so many strands been packed into just 3 sq mm of cross-sectional conductor area, and offered at such a cost effective price.
Structurally, the ES2.23+ consists of twisted copper strands, low dielectric loss polypropylene insulation, cotton damping and soft PVC sheathing. The Ultrafine™copper strands, in 7 concentric parallel bundles per conductor, are woven in a precision rope lay. The cotton damping is particular effective at eliminating the deleterious effects of 'microphony vibrations' (resonances) - a consideration ignored by many of our established competitors.
Ecosse, Setting new standards
With the ES2.23+, we at Ecosse Reference are proud to have produced yet another cable that sets new standards in the performance/price arena.
May be terminated in z/x copper bananas or spades.

We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through us. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three different functions all in one operation:
- It neutralises charges that build up around the cables and the insulation
- It provides a very wide band and deep conditioning into the conductor core, which produces changes in the way signals pass through the metal.
- It ultrasonically conditions the surface of the conductors.
The VIDAR uses a proprietary combination of composite and complex signals to condition the cables. Parts of the signal oscillate at ultra-low frequencies, while other parts are in ultra-high ranges which extend beyond the range of video frequencies. The signal bounces in a ping-ping ball-like fashion from one end of the cable to the other. During the burn-in process, ultra-low frequencies penetrate deep into the core of the cable. The ultra-high frequencies zip along the surface. This method of signal transmission a set up beat harmonics, or heterodynes, between the two complex waveforms. In the digital domain, this would be referred to as aliasing products. These beat frequencies penetrate all layers of the cable.
The design of the circuitry also has a unique feature which drives electrons above the conductor into the dielectric (or insulation) area. The VIDAR not only sends ping pong signals along the cable, it also sends a similar signal from the centre core to the outer shield in the case of interconnect cables. This function neutralises the electrical charges discussed above.
So what does that all mean to me?
The end result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation.

About Ecosse Cable
Ecosse is the name on the worlds finest cables. In terms of price versus performance, musicality and fidelity, Ecosse Cables are without peer.
All Ecosse Cables are painstakingly researched and developed - then hyper evaluated to destruction on the very best 2-channel music system used by ANY cable company in the UK.
Ecosse are proud to have introduced single crystal grain free Monocrystal™ copper (and silver) to the mainstream UK audiophile market back in 1997 and we continued this tradition with our unique Super Monocrystal™ loudspeaker cables in the mid 2000s.
Ecosse Cables are handcrafted in our factory in Scotland by the finest technicians who between them have decades of experience in cable termination. It should come as no surprise then that since the year 2000 Ecosse Cables are the most celebrated cable company in terms of awards, reviews and reputation in the UK.
