KLEI Harmony Phono/RCA Plugs - A New Revolution By KL - Keith Louis Eichmann

The KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug is a new revolutionary approach to KL’s (Keith Louis Eichmann) previous Bullet Plug design, which itself was a revolutionary approach to Phono/RCA connection. It represents a wholesale rethinking of something as basic as the venerable Phono/RCA plug; a connector designed over Sixty years ago by The Radio Corporation of America (RCA).

KL’s objectives for improving the humble RCA plug are… improved conductivity, enhanced signal integrity, higher resolution, and improved connection. These objectives are important and significant in critical areas of Electron Charge Flow and Signal Integrity for High Resolution audio performance and requires close attention to all areas of Connector design, as follows…

  • Geometry/Materials/Mass – KL’s (proprietary) Signal/Ground formula/architecture, ensures Optimum mass of Metals and Dielectrics are used to avoid skin effect, maintain structural Strength and Reliability, and minimise Reactive, EF, & EMF effects. Controlling these effects ensures that a complete, full, and extended Signal frequency range, and the harmonics, are transmitted from Component to Component, which further ensures that the listener enjoys a complete, full, extended, detailed, involving, and musical presentation.
  • Metallurgy – we/KLEI do not waste the effort gained in the other aspects of our designs by compromising with metals less conductive than Copper or Silver.

KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug Architecture

The conductive pins of the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA plugs are formed/manufactured using our proprietary high conductivity alloys, we believe having an IACS rating >101%, and even >106%, to ensure the highest levels of conductivity. When compared to a typical gold plated brass connector used in the vast majority of deluxe Phono/RCA plugs, the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA plug range, utilizing our proprietary high conductivity alloys, achieves improvements in conductivity exceeding 320%. Proven metallurgical choices result in improved signal transfer and electron flow, which is consistent with high resolution interconnect/digital cables.

Our proprietary high conductivity alloys vs ‘Pure annealed Copper/Silver’…

    • Our Extrapolation, Testing, and Reports, that we have received are confirming and allowing/permitting further evaluation and extrapolation, as follows…
      • Electrically, the proprietary high conductivity alloys utilised in the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA plugs are equivalent, and even superior, to ‘Pure annealed Copper/Silver’.
        • Pure annealed Copper/Silver (>=99.9999% purity)… >=100% and >=105% IACS conductivity, respectively.
        • KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA plugs proprietary high conductivity alloys… we believe >101%, and even >106%, IACS conductivity.
        • Our evaluation is that our KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA plugs proprietary high conductivity alloys are equivalent, and even superior, to ‘Pure annealed Copper/Silver’…
          • As such, we believe that our proprietary high conductivity alloys can be called PURE and equivalent to 99.9999% pure annealed Copper/Silver.
          • Further, we shall now refer to our proprietary high conductivity alloys, that we believe are IACS >101%, as KLEI PureCopper™ or KLEI™PureCopper or KLEIpureCopper™ or KLEiPureCopper™, and our proprietary high conductivity alloys, that we believe are IACS >106%, as KLEI PureSilver™ or KLEI™PureSilver or KLEIpureSilver™ or KLEiPureSilver™.
      • Mechanically, the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA plugs proprietary high conductivity alloys are much stronger than ‘Pure annealed Copper/Silver’ and nearly as strong as the Brass alternatives.
      • Sonically, we believe that the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA plugs proprietary high conductivity alloys are therefore superior to ‘Pure annealed Copper/Silver’, especially when designed in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Signal/Ground formulae, but ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’, or in this case ‘in your listening’.
      • Your Feedback and Impressions are welcome.

Conventional RCA’s are designed with a Metal Collar, which is prone to electron turbulence called Eddy Currents. In addition to this Capacitive Reactance and Micro-Arcing are additional artifacts of the metal collar architecture.

    • To combat this KL opted for a Single Point Ground contact similar to Star Earthing/Grounding in high-end electronics which in turn eliminates every vestige of Eddy Current Turbulence, Capacitive Reactance, and Micro-Arcing.
    • Further, with the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plugs design, KL has redesigned the Single Point Ground pin with an optimised shape, mass, and thickness.

Our proprietary high purity silver plating (>106% IACS) is applied directly to the conducting surfaces of the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plugs pins, as required. This produces the performance/sound characteristics of 4-nines pure silver (>106% IACS) and no additional plating is required to preserve signal quality.

Summary

KL believes he has, with this new KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug blueprint, solved a series of problems that collectively degrade audio/video performance and that do so in an additive manner. The importance of this innovation and redesign cannot be overstated. Its ramifications extend to every Phono/RCA interface in which high quality signal transfer is an issue. Extensive listening and critical comparisons played a major role in the evolution of the design, confirming at every juncture the audibility of properly applied science in even the area of Phono/RCA connection.

In summary the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug is a further innovation/revolution and totally new approach to Phono/RCA connection.

  • Further optimization of mass and thickness of the Signal/Ground pins, in accordance to KL’s Copper, Silver, Pure, Absolute, and Perfect Signal/Ground formulas, to enhance electron/energy flow.
    • Although the Copper®Harmony is capable of transferring extremely detailed Musical information with very high Resolution, further analysis of Electron Transmission theories (eg. skin effect, to name one of many aspects) revealed that even better/higher performance can/could be attained utilising even higher conductivity alloys.
    • The Signal and Ground must be in harmony with each other, hence the name (Harmony), and this is why KL’s (proprietary) Signal/Ground formula is very important, re each Harmony model.
  • Further rejection of the idea of using a formed metal collar Ground to encircle the centre Signal pin, which KL has replaced with a new Ground pin.
  • The Ground pin creates single point star earthing/grounding which eliminates eddy current distortions, capacitive and inductive reactance, and micro-arcing.
  • The Ground pin includes thread teeth to ensure that if a conductive Housing, ie metal/carbon fibre/etc, is utilised it is star-point grounded.
  • The Signal/Ground pins are now much stronger and now shaped like tags, which makes soldering small/large/multiple conductor wires to them… very easy.
  • A Signal/Ground Anti-Short shield has been added between the Signal/Ground pins.
  • The Signal/Ground pins are now arranged to maintain a consistent maximum distance from each other, using foil technology, which further improves capacitive and inductive reactance effects and minimizes the cross-talk EMF effects that occurs in all other Phono/RCA plugs.
  • The Head Assembly jaw structure has been redesigned, and mechanically improved, to allow an easy snap-like connection to a Phono/RCA socket, ensuring an ultimate connection without damage to the Phono/RCA socket.
  • The Housing now uses 2 screws to secure the cable sheath to the Harmony®Plug housing.
  • Extremely high temperature melting point thermoplastic polymer is used, with excellent electrical and mechanical characteristics, which easily adjusts to your Phono/RCA socket to provide a secure snap-like fit that is easy to disconnect.
  • Having a significantly higher characteristic impedance than conventional RCA plugs makes the Harmony®Plug an ideal connector for Digital Interconnects requiring RCA connectivity in either 50, 75 or 110 ohm applications. Due to the high conductivity rating of the materials used for the conductors in the Copper Harmony, JITTER may/will be significantly reduced.
