line of connectors is unlike any other. Featuring unrivaled
engineering and design principles.
connectors have been designed and refined for trouble-free
reliability and superior sonic performance. The formula
is simple: develop innovative designs and build them
with the finest materials. Oxygen Free Copper Alloy,
Teflon™, and 24K gold are employed to produce
connectors like none other.
patented nextgen principle
has taken the design of the RCA connection one step
further with the introduction of the "nextgen"
WBT's nextgen plug and socket offer the following 'on
the top' features:
- ultra rapid signal transfer
- no more interferences (especially Eddy current)
- to perform as a true wide band connector (for digital
- to be the first true RCA type connector of 75 ohms
characteristic impedance offered to the Audio industry
(the perfect solution for digital!).
current exclusion as well as the 75 ohms setting are
impossible to obtain with a standard RCA construction
where the center pin (plus) is built as a massive part
and the outer contact (minus) is also massive and furthermore
formed out of the plug's metal body. Logically, the
nextgen plugs would have to break with today's most
essential RCA design habits. But it was worthwhile!
the nextgen plug and socket feature a characteristic
impedance of 75 ohms, a long awaited piece for all matched
digital audio connections.
Now you have the chance to get the necessary total match
of 75 ohms on your system!
You can't do better than exchanging your (standard)
RCA type plug of your digital entries against nextgen
nextgen RCA type plug
core of the nextgen plug design is the central contact
unit built from the plus and the minus conductor piece
and their respective surrounding plastic holders. The
conductors' daintiness insure the properties and performances
mentioned before. Intelligently designed, the whole
unit can be taken off for more comfortable soldering
and clipped back into the central body easily.
All material used is whether pure copper or fine silver
(conductor elements) or highest grade materials like
Ultramid and magnesium for their strength and Dyneon
for its remarkably high heat resistance.
course, the nextgen plug also offers the widely known
'classics' of a WBT RCA:
the patented clamping device effected by the two-piece
outer sleeve (this time working on the thoroughly designed
three teeth construction of the outer contact elements)
- the perfect cable strain relief by means of WBT's
classic Torx screw
is proud to present now their next generation of RCA
type connections based on the 'reduced but pure' principle.
The nextgen RCA socket features a fabulous wave-formed
outer contact embracing the socket's solid Ultramid
It perfectly corresponds to the double prism inner contact,
both conductors then made of highly ductile pure copper
or fine silver. The intelligent wave form insures that
a reliable contact is made any time with any standard
RCA type plug and, of course, with the new nextgen WBT
RCA connector. A perfect solution for digital entries
due to its true 75 Ohm characteristic impedance!
