Van den Hul The First Ultimate Stereo Interconnect MKII

Van den Hul The First Ultimate Stereo Interconnect (MKII) is possibly one of the most, if not the most, advanced audio interconnect on the market today. Its advanced technology is a true milestone in the world of Hi-Fi and Home Cinema. Some argue that ‘a cable is just a cable’; Van den Hul The First is an interconnect that makes that statement to become an understatement in every way.

With sonic accuracy being this interconnect’s strong point, you will notice that delivery of mid-high end audio signals will be more present and detailed, whilst low ends will be smooth, responsive and presented with much more ease than any other interconnect could dream of re-producing. In further detail, it is noticeable that spatial detail is much more noticeable and is much broader than the previous The First interconnect.

With Van den Hul pouring much investment into their research they have finally struck a major chord in terms of technological and sound quality advancements. The First might look like a very ‘swish’ interconnect, but it has lots of sound quality perspectives that are all due to the vast features of this interconnect that are: Linear Structured Carbon (LSC) conductors, Hulliflex 4 for extreme protection from interference, individual strand insulation and a centre core insulation made of polyethylene foam to achieve a low capacitance between the inner and outer group with minimal dielectric absorption.

In simple terms, this is the interconnect that your system deserves! The reason why Van den Hul has been named ‘The First’ is simple. It means that it should be ‘the first’ interconnect that will make its users truly happy, never expecting or wanting more.
