PA-02 V2

The versatile interconnect cable with 102SSC conductor


The PA-02 V2 is a 2 core shielded traditional design designed not only for audiophiles but also for professional use.

The conductor is made of 102SSC, a precision conductor that Oyaide Electric is proud of. and it is used not only for the 2-core signal line but also for the braided shield.

The PA-02 V2 is synonymous with ultimate cost performance, with quality and philosophy that transcend the realm of entry-level models.


102SSC - Oyaide Electric Precision Conductor

  • To avoid impurities as much as possible, only virgin copper that does not contain any recycled copper is used in accordance with JIS C1011.
  • Peeling process is applied to remove 100% of impurities attached to the surface.
  • In order to facilitate the flow of electrical signals through the surface layer of the conductor, the strand is made finer using a natural diamond die to improve the surface smoothness of the strand.
  • The stranded wire is processed with a processing accuracy of ±1μm, far exceeding the standard error tolerance of ±8μm.
  • Two annealing processes are used to eliminate mechanical stress distortions in the strands.
  • Thorough product control of manufacturing control values, maintenance, shipping days, etc. Achieved the highest conductivity of 102.3% IACS.

Patented "3E Stranded" Technology for Twisting Three Different Sizes of Wires Together


The 3E stranded structure is a concentric stranding arrangement of stranded wires in a lump-sum twisted wire conductor, and by arranging three different strand diameters, the stranding arrangement is made denser. By arranging three different strand diameters, the strand arrangement is made denser, enabling a finer conductor structure and improving conductor characteristics.

The strands of these three different conductor diameters are arranged geometrically to minimize the gaps between strands and improve strand density.

Furthermore, the outer diameter of the strands has been downsized to maintain a stable and highly accurate outer diameter, and the cross section after twisting is a perfect circle, an unprecedented conductor structure in the world. This ensures uniform adhesion between the insulator and conductor, eliminating random thickness of the insulation material and making it uniform.

Traditional 2 Core Shielded Cable Construction

A traditional design of 2-core shielded type is adopted for not only audiophiles but also for professional use.

The two conductors arranged at a uniform pitch are set at 120Ω impedance and can be used not only for analog signals but also for digital (AES/EBU) signals.

Shield is also made of 102SSC, a precision conductor, and braided shield is made of 24 pairs of 8 conductors of 0.12mm to achieve a braid ratio of 80%.

Halogen-free PE Sheath for Audio

The halogen-free PE (Polyethylene) sheath, which is specially designed for audio and complies with the European RoHS Directive, has extremely high vibration damping properties due to its material composition ratio, enabling clear signal transmission.

Furthermore, it also exhibits excellent potential in electrical characteristics, suppressing the increase in relative permittivity in the low frequency range due to the outer packaging and controlling the increase in attenuation. This allows for the reproduction of a fuller low frequency range.

Foamed polypropylene with low dielectric constant is used as the insulation material. The superior vibration control and electrical characteristics of the sheath and insulation material ensure loss-free music reproduction. The sheath is marked "PA-02 V2" and "102SSC.
