Van den Hul is a Dutch company producing hi-fi audio cables, founded in 1980 by the homonymous manufacturer. The main objective of the company is to improve the quality of signal transmission in the broadest sense and make the signal fidelity as real as possible. Van Den Hul, since its inception, has adopted unique solutions combined with state-of-the-art technologies based on inventions, discoveries and listening experiences to create its products.
3T - a revolution in the audio cable industry
All galvanic conductors that are used in today's audio industry are made of soft metals. The advantage is that there are many free electrons available. This is advantageous for the conductivity of the cable. A large quantity of free electrons automatically means a low resistance of the conductor. Traditionally, so-called "experts" love to see this.
The disadvantage of this choice is that the conductors can be reshaped rather easily since they do not have a stable internal structure. These metals are also very sensitive to thermal, chemical and mechanical aging. For this reason, the sound changes drastically in a relatively short period of time. The result is that you will have to buy a new pair, the story repeats, etc. etc. Not really a great way to have a lasting implant.
To have a more lasting response to the aforementioned problem, Van Den Hul was the first company that started producing a series of completely metal-free conductors applying Linear Structure Carbon (LSC).
Another ten years of research, starting with Fusion Technology, has finally led to a new revolution in the world of the driver: 3T (True Transmission Technology).
The idea behind the 3T concept is to use as many electrons as possible to bind metal atoms together. The disadvantage of a slightly higher impedance is more than compensated for by the rigid structure of the conductive material. The only way to do this is to, once again, ignore the general point of view and go in a completely new direction.
The basis (and eventually the outcome) of this research is:
1. No mechanical or chemical aging.
2. There are no metal layers in the conductor to prevent any kind of chemical activity between them.
3. Great mechanical flexibility for an extremely small bend radius.
4. Great mechanical strength. At least 150 Kg / mm2.
5. An amorphous structure to have no crystalline margins in the conductive material
6. Completely stable at higher temperatures (up to 250 degrees Celsius).
7. Really stable structure turns out to be possible only in a mixture of various metals in an exact ratio. Eventually it was discovered that five metals and a non-metal were needed.
8. Extremely long life without any change in sound characteristics.
9. A very short break-in period. After about two hours you can expect good results. After only 48 hours, the cables reach their optimal balance.
10. A very high resolution during playback.
11. Thanks to this high resolution, excellent audible acoustics.
12. No dynamic limitation.
13. In particular, the spectrum between 40 Hz-200 Hz and 2 kHz-15 KHz must remain perceptible. A lot of hosts have offered problematic experiences in this area.
14. Last but not least: applicable in industrial situations.
