Diago PF01 Patch Factory Solderless Patch Cable System design does not use loose parts or additional screws to make the all-important electrical connections - that's something else to go wrong. Instead, our positive signal/tip connection is made by a sharp pin at the centre of the plug, which makes contact with the central multi-strand wires of the cable. The ground/earth connection is made by a sharp edge on the inside of the cap, which cuts through the polyurethane sheath and makes contact with the cable's 96-strand shield.
Don't worry, it cannot cut too much or too little - this cable was designed in-house at Diago, and so fits perfectly with our solderless plugs. As long as you follow the assembly instructions, a reliable connection will be made.
The Diago Patchfactory system uses our own cable, designed in-house in the UK. It has a super-low capacitance of 30pF/ft (approx. 100pF/m) to prevent the treble roll-off caused by the high capacitance of poor quality cables.
