Melco Audio Launches Noise-Reducing Ethernet Cable

Melco introduces new noise-reducing Ethernet cable  

Melco launches a high-tech yet low cost noise-reducing Ethernet cable for improved networked audio

Tokyo, Japan, 8 December 2022: Melco Audio, the Japanese digital music expert, has launched a high-performance yet low cost Ethernet cable featuring a number of noise-reducing design properties, priced from just £125 (EUR 149) for a 1 m length. 

The new C100 directly replaces Melco’s debut Ethernet cable, the C1AE, and introduces a number of upgrades to reduce noise and improve networked audio sound quality. 

The C100 benefits from asymmetric drain wire grounding, where one end of the cable features a ground point. Unwanted noise, either external or from connected devices, travels in one direction to the ground end, (indicated by a Melco logo on the connector plug), not interfering with delicate signal transmission.

The opposite (non-grounded) end of the cable features an innovative ‘floating’ shield, which is not attached to the connector plug, meaning unwanted noise cannot transfer to connected audio devices downstream.

Further benefits include gold-plated connectors, a smooth cable outer to avoid tangling, plus a double shield for additional protection. The C100’s conductor thickness has also been improved over its predecessor. 

The C100 is a wide bandwidth design rated at 600 MHz, 6x the speed of CAT 5e and 2.4x that of CAT 6. Lengths include: 1 m, 2 m, 3 m, 5 m and 10 m.

Price and availability 

The C100 is available now priced from just £125/EUR 149 (1 m).
