The aristocratic (sToa 8 evolution technology)

The aristocratic is the result of a long research considering all factors based on the principles of science for a really unique cable to be manufactured. It constitutes the evolution of our the uranus interconnect cable in our program eventually becoming the new banner of our products. In order to achieve the best possible quality at a reasonable price, for this cable we mobilized every manufacturing detail, the best possible raw materials and our limit skills, creating a product simple yet very effective in accordance with our philosophy.
The aristocratic will lower the noise floor of your beloved high fidelity system in order to hear significant improvements in dynamics and harmonic nuances along with a natural balance of music's fundamental tones to harmonic frequencies. You will also notice significant improvements in sound staging and ambience, a better low-level resolution and the clearest high frequencies you could ever imagine.


These primary characteristics of the aristocratic interconnect are being achieved as a result of applying sToa 8 evolution technology to it. Our sToa 8 evolution technology is a combination of our sToa 8 and our self-shielded technologies plus some improvements giving a lower cable resistance without increasing the capacitance. In contrast we achieved an even lower capacitance along with high thermal, chemical and mechanical stability. The result is an extremely efficient cable, easy to drive and almost "not there" that takes you closer to the music than ever before.

The aristocratic is a light flexible shielded twin-core interconnect cable in a luxury black-gold color. It is composed of two heavy signal conductors that are specially made of 99.999% (5N) extra soft temper pure fine silver, which has the best conductivity of all metals.
By using individually insulated solid core conductors we eliminate strand interactions multi-stranded cables suffer from.
The manufacturing process eliminates the conductors surface mechanical anomalies improving the electrical signal transmission properties, thus giving extremely low distortion, especially in high frequencies.
In addition, each one of them is perfectly cleaned in a two-stage cleaning procedure. In the first stage a strong cleaning process eliminates corrosion, and polishes the surface in order to increase conductivity. In the second stage, by using a special liquid we make a deep final cleaning of the subtraction remains from the first stage, preparing the conductor surface treatment.
To eliminate the problem of silver corrosion in the course of time, a thick liquid treatment oil is being used, specially designed for this purpose. The same oil is standardly applied to all our extra soft temper pure fine silver conductors. The result is a time-lasting stable product capable of avoiding chemical attacks, protected from atmospheric pollutants. This liquid treatment also works:

  • As a metal to dielectric suspension, reducing the vibrations coming from the current running through the audio cables and the loudspeakers themselves, rendering any microphonic effects (time-related distortion) insignificant.
  • As a lubricant, reducing dramatically the friction between the silver conductor and the dielectric tube avoiding the static electricity (conveyance of electrons) distortion.


By using a specific process, each end of our silver conductors is perfectly polished, thus becoming elliptical to avoid electric evacuations.
The insulation tubing of the two conductors is made of PTFE, which is the original TeflonŽ formulation and has the lowest dielectric constant of all plastics, specially treated for better cushioning.
A very flexible PVC layer is applied over the two separately TeflonŽ insulated extra soft temper pure fine silver conductors stabilizing the entire system and providing excellent flexibility, electric insulation, and durability. This layer is independently hanging to the connectors using our patented Elastic hanging mechanism, offering significant advantages thus rendering aristocratic cable practically uninfluenced by any alteration in the wires metal structure

The shield screen consists of metallized braided mylar sleeves reducing and practically eliminating the external Electromagnetic (EMI) and the Radio Frequency Interferences (RFI) signals, grounded only at one end of the cable in order to avoid the creation of a parallel circuit (ground loop). This screen drains away all unwanted noises to the ground of the signal source.

Total cable capacitance (tendency to 'swallow up' the alternating changing voltage) including metal shield and connectors, one of the most important electrical properties of an analogue interconnect cable, remains remarkably low for a shielded cable at 39 pF/meter!
Our patented Natural Flow Cooling System keeps the conductors temperature stable and quite low, increasing conductivity and eliminating farther corrosion as any chemical activity.
Moreover, this cable is airproofed using our recently patented Cables airproof mode. A suitable cylindrical elastic o-ring is properly placed near each cable connector covering and tightening the external jacket, thus isolating the sensitive silver conductors from the atmosphere and the penetration of humidity, keeping the capacitance stable and low.

The signal direction is indicated by an arrow printed in the outer label of the aristocratic cable. The printed arrow indicates the direction of the signal flow.
Total cable weight remains remarkably low (38 gram/m) in order to protect your delicate equipment sockets.

Combining superior transmission quality, a very high screening factor and a significant flexibility along with high durability, low weight, very low capacitance and stable operation temperature level, the aristocratic is also excellently suited for use as a perfect tonearm to preamp cable as well as a superior microphone cable in critical professional recordings.
Providing a superior digital signal transmission quality aristocratic is also recommended for use as an excellent digital interconnect.

The aristocratic interconnect cable is available with our minimal metal content, gold plated RCA high quality connectors. These superb conductivity connectors are designed to present significant low capacitance.
Before lead-free and halogen-free soldering, using high purity, 4% silver solder, we apply pressure to stabilize the conductors and ensure a suitable low resistance contact. The process of melting and solidifying takes place within narrow temperature ranges so that the surface of the solder joint remains smooth and corrosion protected. This connecting method seems to provide the best signal transfer results.

A thick liquid treatment oil is applied on the solder surface as well as on all our RCA connectors to eliminate corrosion increasing contact electrical stability. In addition, each connector is protected from dust and corrosion by a red plastic heavy duty cover cup. After unpacked we recommend not disposing the plastic cover cups. Use them in order to protect the unused RCA sockets to your amplifier from moisture, dust, corrosion and any accidental insert.
Before packing we use our Cables Demagnetizing Method neutralizing all metal and non-metal parts on them in a three-stage procedure.

Finally, as with all our cables, aristocratic is being carefully checked and separately measured and test it by a highly skilled master technician in our laboratory to ensure a reliable product, offering a remarkable upgrade to your beloved system.
Aristocratic is carefully packed in a luxury real wooden box specially designed to protect this cable and prevent any damage. Each of our wooden boxes has a unique serial number same as the cable. Inside you will find all documents and instructions manual required plus a bottle of our pastra advanced antistatic cleaner as a gift.

The aristocratic, if registered, comes with a 6-year warranty against manufacturing defects. We also offer a 30-day trial period and a money-back guarantee by refunding the purchase price minus a 5% restocking fee. However, buyer is responsible for the return shipping costs. Please contact your local distributor-dealer for more information.
