The guys at Mains Cable R Us got in touch to tell us about SLIC Innovations, a new specialist British SLIChi-fi manufacturer which has launched its first audiophile interconnect cable – the Eclipse ‘C’. “It uses radical new technology unique to SLIC Innovations, and sounds like no other cable on the market as a result”. says the company press release.

Continuint “SLIC stands for Super Low Interference Cable, which is the philosophy that informs the design of Eclipse ‘C’. Focusing on the susceptibility of conventional audio cables to the ingress of electrical noise, Eclipse was designed to eliminate this”.

Eclipse ‘C’ costs £492.00 for a 1m stereo cable terminated in premium quality RCA phono plugs. Other terminations and lengths are available.
