    Ending 2002 on a winning note, The Maestro MA2 was awarded one of Hi-Fi News and Record Review (the UK's most prestigious Hi-End Hi-Fi Magazine) highest accolades-the 2002-03 'Editors Choice Award'-to add to its already numerous awards.

    Indeed, as a multi award winner and garner of numerous 5-star awards this cable has got to be on your 'must have' list. 'The Maestro MA2' has met with spectacular success in critical comparison between it and other interconnects which claim similar price/performance characteristics.

    One review (among so many) stated:" sonically they amaze, high-end system owners take note." WHAT HI-FI? SOUND AND VISION

    Not surprising really when you consider the enviable construction quality and technically unsurpassed (at anything approaching its price point) conductor material that goes to make The Maestro.

    Not only is the 'going' and 'return' conductor multistrand ultra-pure grain-free proprietary Monocrystal™ Copper, (each single crystal of copper is a massive 1700m long-go figure!) the tight braiding of the latter offers-together with the addition screen of Conductive polymer - 100% protection from environmental 'noise' pollution.

    Superior low-loss Polyethylene and ultra low loss low-density Foamed Polyethylene Dielectrics ensures absolutely minimal signal energy loss down its length.

    There unique Monocrystal™ Copper MACH2Cu RCA phono plug terminations are non-compressing, and involve conjugate bracket all-Monocrystal™ Cu contacts.

    A word about there unique terminations: The terminations at the ends of cables are part of the transmission path and therefore vital to it. They must not impede the delicate audio signal as inappropriate termination on a cable changes the so called characteristic impedance (and other electrical attributes) of the cable.

    To maintain the quality of the all-important interface between interconnect and component and compatibility between wire material and plug, Ecosse has developed there unique non-compressing constant impedance MACH2Cu RCA plug.

    This audiophile quality RCA plug consists of a centre pin and conjugate bracket shield* which together offer going and return paths for the audio signal. To maintain continuity and optimum conductivity, these contact points are made from Monocrystal ™ copper - same as the conductor wire itself. The plug casing is precision machined from highest quality copper alloy and is deep-plated. This thick casing offers further shielding - effectively a second 'Faraday Cage' - and reduces the ingress and radiation of EMI, ESI and RFI 'noise' even further, to virtually zero.

    The interface of shield* and casing is one of high mechanical impedance, dissipating energy and rendering microphonic effects negligible. The full assembly represents Ecosse's Audiophile Grade RCA termination for smaller diameter cables and we believe the Ecosse MACH2Ag RCA to be the best available price wise, electrically, mechanically and aesthetically - anywhere!

    To maintain the quality of the all-important interface between interconnect and component and compatibility between wire material and plug, Ecosse has developed there unique non-compressing constant impedance MACH2Cu deep copper plated RCA plug. This high quality RCA plug consists of a centre pin and conjugate bracket shield* which together offer going and return paths for the audio signal. To maintain continuity and optimum conductivity, these contact points are made from Monocrystal™ copper - same as the conductor wire itself- which are then direct hard silver plated.

    *These shells/ shields are designed to perform a 5-fold function:

    1) They provide a terminal to which the return/screen conductors can be firmly crimped and Super-soldered.
    2) They incorporate tiny teeth that grip the cable firmly and evenly around its circumference without compressing the cable and thereby maintain the cable's characteristic impedance right up to the solder joint.
    3)When assembled, they form a Faraday cage, screening the signal right up to and including the RCA socket.
    4) They form a union of high mechanical impedance with the outer casing, dissipating energy and therefore rendering the plug immune to the effects of microphony.
    5) They firmly locate and clamp the centre pin's polypropylene dielectric, which, in conjunction with the outer casing, results in a strong, stable and extremely durable structure.

    If you are ready to upgrade your hi-fi or AV system to experience the audible benefits of Monocrystal™ technology, The Maestro MA2 is a necessity. The Maestro is not a cheap cable, but it may well be the least expensive upgrade you will ever make. Its ability to bring you ever closer to the music as the artist who performed it intended it to be heard - in terms of sound stage, clarity, detail, focus, high and low frequency extension and above all realism - is unparalleled at this price point!

    We sincerely recommend you to match this cable with one of our Monocrystal™ 'speaker' cables. Thus, for the ultimate audio experience, try it with our MS2.3, MS2.15solidcore, or MS4.45 pre-terminated biwire combination. Alternately, where price dictates, our ES2.3/CS2.15 biwire loudSpeaker cable will also synergise well with this interconnect.

    FREE CABLE BURN-IN SERVICE OPTION USING THE NORDOST VIDAR MACHINE WHEN YOU PURCHASE THIS CABLE FROM FUTURESHOP.CO.UK


    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.

    Submitted By: on
    I used to connect my Z114 CD Myryad and Myryad 2080 power amplifier, The Maestro Ma2 is better than the QED Performance Audio 2 , but the difference is not very obvious. But Maestro MA2 ' production is very rough, and the joint is very loose, will lead to poor contact. From the price, QED is a good choice.
