    The FIRST ® Metal Screen is an extension to our “The FIRST ®” series of coaxial Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) interconnects designed for highest quality audio and SPDIF digital signal transport.

    The FIRST ® Metal Screen is a special version of our The FIRST ® with the same basic construction, however, as its name already indicates, a dense braided high quality metal (*) screen covering its Linear Structured Carbon ® shield has been added. As such The FIRST ® Metal Screen can be looked upon as the coaxial (unbalanced) version of our The SECOND ® balanced Linear Structured Carbon ® interconnect which is also metal screened.

    *: High purity dense Silver coated high purity Matched Crystal OFC.

    The major difference between the members of our “The FIRST ®” series is their shield series resistance; Our The FIRST ®, The FIRST ® Ultimate and The FIRST ® Metal Screen progressively exhibit a lower shield resistance. (Respectively: ~14, ~4.8 and 0.0049 Ohm/m.).

    Although both first mentioned 100% metal free versions perform hum and noise free in more than 95% of all line level interconnect applications, The FIRST ® Metal Screen with its lowest shield resistance has been specially designed for those situations where excessive ground currents flowing through the cable shield are present (e.g. with some tube equipment), in complex grounding situations and/or where extra shielding against strong external electrical interference is required (e.g. in highly electrical noise polluted areas).
