Lakewood, NJ (March 4, 2005)–Neutrik has introduced its next generation of XLR cable connectors, the NC**XX series. Similar in style to the NP*X series of 1/4-inch phone plugs, the NC**XX series is easy to assemble and simple to use and will be available in 3- to 7-pole configurations.
The compact, die-cast shell has internal threads that mate with the external threads on the boot to eliminate damage sometimes found on exposed threads. Additional features include female cage-type contact that will increase conductivity and reduce wear of the male contacts and a new ground contact that will provide better integrity between the chassis and cable connectors. The NC**XX series is available in nickel housing with silver contacts, black metal housing with silver contacts and black metal housing with gold contacts.
