Sommer Cable has been known in Europe for many years and has just come to North American with Sommer Cable America in 2015. The Sommer SC-Corona has the dual application of being both a Phono cable and a high-end guitar cable. The tightly stranded CU litz wires allow for a clean and precise sound image with an extremely fast transient response. The Corona’s transparent jacket allows the silver OFC braided shielding to be visible and with the added G&H Nickel connectors it’s a gorgeous compliment to an already beautiful cable. With a similar feel to the SC-Spirit XXL, the SC-Corona has a slightly smaller diameter and slightly more flexible. And did I say light. No! Well, it’s light. And Quiet. The Corona achieves 100% shielding through a combination of an OFC outer braided shield and inner carbon screen. This dual shielding keeps interference at bay.
