Croak Audio Exploration is proud to be the Cardas Audio Distributor for South Africa.

We now offer a professional tonearm re-wiring service using these superb Cardas Audio Products. These Cardas products are also available for DIY and we make a "plug and Play" tonearm interconnect, called The Turntable Tail.

Turn your good arm in to a Super Arm, re wire it with Cardas!
George Cardas only uses the finest materials, litz wires that do not oxidise, ever, with his patented Golden Section Stranding that minimises cable strand interaction.


Croak Audio 'The Turntable Tail'

Croak Audio 'The Turntable Tail'

  • Croak Audio's custom terminated phono cable utilizing a Cardas 4x24 AWG shielded cable and Cardas DIN plug.
  • Like all Cardas cable the TTT uses a golden ratio, constant Q, cross field cable design with use of premium materials. The size and flexibility of this cable is excellent.
  • We build each of these cables to order so any length and a choice of Neutrik RCA or XLR termination is possible. Solder connections are made using Cardas Quad Eutectic solder.
  • The cable is a balanced design so no signal is run on the shield and a dedicated earth wire is connected at the DIN plug at the arm base. The earth cable is terminated in a crocodile clip. This may seem odd but this is the one connection in your audio system that does not need to be torqued with a spanner and the clip gives a freedom of grounding options not restricted to an earth post.


Cardas G Master Reference Line Level Interconnect

Cardas G Master Reference

  • The Cardas G-Master Reference is a studio grade product developed originally by George Cardas for the recording industry.
  • Low capacitance with excellent shielding are the fundamental electrical parameters. Slim and flexible cables with durable jackets are necessary physical properties for studio use. Obviously these properties make them ideal high-end audio line level interconnects. The proven twisted pair design with high quality Teflon dielectric and double shielding makes them an excellent choice for all audio applications. Combined with the signature Cardas Golden Ratio stranding with fully coated high quality copper litz wire (that will never oxidize) and you end up with a fantastic cable at a very reasonable price.
  • We build each of these cables to order so any length and a choice of Neutrik RCA or XLR termination is possible. Solder connections are made using Cardas Quad Eutectic solder. The subjective sound qualities are in line with several of the more expensive products in the Cardas line and their electrical parameters are actually superior to many of the high-end cables on the market.
  • Get Cardas quality, low price and excellent performance all in one package. Cardas 2x24AWG constant Q cable design, very low capacitance at 22pF/ft, and a double shield for superb noise rejection. Incredibly light and flexible design makes for easy routing.
