model S201 ― Loudspeaker Cable

Specifications

Caution for Use

Wire the speaker cable terminal according to the polarity of the stereo amplifier or the speaker and tighten it securely. Please note that if the wiring is not correct, the left and right sides will be in opposite phase and the sound image will not be localized near the center of the left and right speakers. Also, if the speaker cable terminal is accidentally short-circuited while the power is on, excessive current will flow to the output of the power supply, leading to a serious failure. Make sure to turn off the power before wiring. At that time, by wiring from the speaker side, such troubles can be avoided.

model S202 ― Power Line Cable

This original power cable is a soft cable that is easy to wrap around, even when it is cold, and the outlet side plug is brass without plating. It is bundled to our products, and we have started selling even with the power cable alone with popularity. The salient point of this power cable is that it has a double spiral (twisted pair) structure, making it less susceptible to external inductive noise and less radiate. The polarity is white in the neutral (cold side, earth) and the other in the line (hot side). The third chassis ground terminal is not connected, which is not normal to Japanese outlets. We recommend that you have the power cable in the correct length with the optimal length for your audio system.

Specifications

For European Countries

For European countries, this power cable uses German plug (Kaiser 616/Schuko plug 16A type, Made in Germany) with 3 wires soft cable.

Caution for Use

Household outlets are decided to have long holes as neutral (white cable) and short holes as lines (black cable). However, wiring in the wall may be incorrect, and the wiring inside the audio equipment may not match polarity. Just to be sure, change the polarity, please use it with less noise or better sound quality.

model S203 ― RCA Pin Line Cable (for analog signal)

Specifications

Caution for Use

Due to the structure of the RCA pin plug, the hot side (core wire) comes in contact first, so if it is removed while the device is energized, a large noise may be generated, which may cause problems with the device. Be sure to unplug the plug while the power is off.

As for the length (measured from the center of the plug at both ends),you can request and it is manufactured in the range of 0.5 m - 2.0 m. You need two cable for stereo, and it is marked right as red and left as white. The price per cable is as follows.
~0.5m 6,000 JPY
~1.0m 7,000 JPY
~1.5m 8,000 JPY
~2.0m 9,000 JPY (+ shipping charge)

model S205u ― USB/Digital to Analog Signal Converter


Features

This adapter converts digital music signal from PC via USB to analog current-mode signal. Although this function is the DAC itself, it has a powerful buffer amplifier for current-mode signaling. Power is supplied by USB bus power, external power supply such as AC adapter is unnecessary. Therefore, We dared to develop it as "conversion adapter" in the position. We, Sparkler Audio never neglects of sound quality even with this tiny DAC. If you have a CD/DVD drive connected to a PC and this conversion adapter, you can construct a high-quality CD player with excellent cost performance. The sound quality is also imperative to our product model S503.

model S205d ― USB to S/PDIF (coaxial) Digital Signal Converter

Features

This adapter converts digital music signal from PC via USB to S/PDIF coaxial digital signal. Same as our S503 "spiral" CD Transport, it has two isolated signal. So that it can be also utilized as a high-end CD transport has been provided same signals but an completely independent coaxial output of the left and right two systems (75Ω, S/PDIF format). In order to avoid the interference of the left and right of the cross talk and ground, use an independent buffer amplifier to output, it is also ground side by further adopt a separate pulse transformer complete isolation (separation). As a result, if you make the two external DAC left and right independent, complete dual monaural configurations are possible. If you have only one external DAC, you just plug in either output.

model S206u ― Current-mode to Voltage-mode Signal Converter

This product is a current/voltage conversion adapter developed for current-mode signaling in order to reduce cable loss and external noise. It is a passive adapter (power supply unnecessary) necessary when connecting our products (model S504i etc.) corresponding to the current-mode output and the equipment corresponding to the conventional voltage-mode input. It is effective to install the adapter as close as possible to the voltage input device on the receiving side and connect it with the shortest distance. On the other hand, since the current-mode (impedance 0 Ω) is made between the current output device of the sending side and the adapter, the cable can be lengthened.

model S207 ― Phono Input Cable

Born in our company model S508 phono amplifier development, it is a phono input dedicated cable used in the work bench. When using separate cables on the left and right, the area of the ground-loop is always formed in the ground part, which causes picked up noise induced from high frequencies and power lines due to it. There is almost no noise when stranding of the left and right cables together. Then we thought that it would be better to further shield it with a single cable. Unfortunately, such phono dedicated cables were not on the market.
Hot and cold of the signal line are mutually stranded (twisted pair) for the left and right channel, furthermore, the left and right bundle are mutually stranded of, and the outer conductor (shield) is overlaid on it to form the frame ground. Because of such a double structure, the signal does not pass through the mesh wire that deteriorates the sound quality, and it also serves as a ground wire connecting the phono stage amplifier (ground terminal of the chassis) and the analog player (tone arm metal part). As a result, due to the induction noise decrease and record disc playback is truly quiet, delicate musical expression stands out.

About Warming Up

These original cables gradually show their original performance gradually by aging over a certain period of time after purchase. The reason is not clear yet. Perhaps it is thought that "change" similar to the aging of snowy roads and audio equipment is occurring, but this also does not go out of speculation. It is advisable to ring for at least 1 to 2 days and check the "change" of sound quality.
