Innovations, Refinements, Specifications, and Comparisons are as follows…

 KLEInnovations(KLEI)… Classic Harmony

  • The Signal/Ground pins utilise KLEI™PureCopper (not Tellurium Copper (92%~95% IACS) or Brass (28% IACS) (please refer to the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug Architecture, above).
  • The Signal/Ground pin optimization has been utilised to enhance electron flow, and designed in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Classic Signal/Ground formula.
  • The Signal/Ground pins finish utilises an ultra high purity Silver finish which is formed, in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Classic Signal/Ground formula, as an integral part of the pins construction, and also helps protect the pins from oxidization.
  • Our testing, and reports received, show that the KLEI™Classic Harmony has excellent PRAT, Decay, Timbre and Texture, Edge Control and Extension, Resolution, and Stage.

 KLEInnovations(KLEI)… Copper®Harmony

  • The Signal/Ground pins utilise KLEI™PureCopper (please refer to the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug Architecture, above).
  • The Signal/Ground pin optimization has been utilised to enhance electron flow, and designed in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Copper Signal/Ground formula.
  • The Signal/Ground pins finish utilises an ultra high purity Silver finish which is formed, in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Copper Signal/Ground formula, as an integral part of the pins construction, and also helps protect the pins from oxidization.
  • Our testing, and reports received, show that the KLEI Copper®Harmony when compared to the Silver Bullet RCA plugs, has noticeably better PRAT, Decay, Timbre and Texture, Edge Control and Extension, Resolution, and Stage.

 KLEInnovations(KLEI)… Silver®Harmony

  • The Ground pin utilises KLEI™PureSilver and the Signal pin utilises KLEI™PureCopper (please refer to the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug Architecture, above).
  • The Signal/Ground pin optimization has been utilised to enhance electron flow, and designed in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Silver Signal/Ground formula.
  • The Signal/Ground pins finish utilises an ultra high purity Silver finish which is formed, in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Silver Signal/Ground formula, as an integral part of the pins construction, and also helps protect the pins from oxidization.
  • Our testing, and reports received, show that the KLEI Silver®Harmony when compared to the KLEI Copper®Harmony has noticeably better PRAT, Decay, Timbre and Texture, Edge Control and Extension, Resolution, and Stage.

 KLEInnovations(KLEI)… Pure®Harmony

  • The Signal/Ground pins utilise KLEI™PureSilver (please refer to the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug Architecture, above).
  • The Signal/Ground pin optimization has been utilised to enhance electron flow, and designed in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Pure Signal/Ground formula.
  • The Signal/Ground pins finish utilises an ultra high purity Silver finish which is formed, in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Pure Signal/Ground formula, as an integral part of the pins construction, and also helps protect the pins from oxidization.
  • Our testing, and reports received, show that the KLEI Pure®Harmony when compared to the KLEI Silver®Harmony is Simply… Faster, Quieter/Noiseless/Blacker Background, and more transparent, and has noticeably better PRAT, Decay, Timbre and Texture, Edge Control and Extension, Resolution, and Stage.

 KLEInnovations(KLEI)… Absolute®Harmony

  • The Signal/Ground pins utilise KLEI™PureSilver (please refer to the KLEI™Harmony Phono/RCA Plug Architecture, above).
  • The Signal/Ground pin optimization has been utilised to enhance electron flow, and designed in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Absolute Signal/Ground formula.
  • The Signal/Ground pins finish utilises an ultra high purity Silver finish which is formed, in accordance with KL’s (proprietary) Absolute Signal/Ground formula, as an integral part of the pins construction, and also helps protect the pins from oxidization.
  • Our testing, and reports received, show that the KLEI Absolute®Harmony when compared to the KLEI Pure®Harmony is Simply… even Faster, even Quieter/Noiseless/Blacker Background, and more transparent, and has noticeably better PRAT, Decay, Timbre and Texture, Edge Control and Extension, Resolution, and Stage.
  • Further optimization of mass and thickness of the Signal/Ground pins, in accordance to KL’s Copper, Silver, Pure, Absolute, and Perfect Signal/Ground formulas, to enhance electron/energy flow.
  • Although the Copper®Harmony is capable of transferring extremely detailed Musical information with very high Resolution, further analysis of Electron Transmission theories (eg. skin effect, to name one of many aspects) revealed that even better/higher performance can/could be attained utilising even higher conductivity alloys.
  • The Signal and Ground must be in harmony with each other, hence the name (Harmony), and this is why KL’s (proprietary) Signal/Ground formula is very important, re each Harmony model.
  • Further rejection of the idea of using a formed metal collar Ground to encircle the centre Signal pin, which KL has replaced with a new Ground pin.
  • The Ground pin creates single point star earthing/grounding which eliminates eddy current distortions, capacitive and inductive reactance, and micro-arcing.
  • The Ground pin includes thread teeth to ensure that if a conductive Housing, ie metal/carbon fibre/etc, is utilised it is star-point grounded.
  • The Signal/Ground pins are now much stronger and now shaped like tags, which makes soldering small/large/multiple conductor wires to them… very easy.
  • A Signal/Ground Anti-Short shield has been added between the Signal/Ground pins.
  • The Signal/Ground pins are now arranged to maintain a consistent maximum distance from each other, using foil technology, which further improves capacitive and inductive reactance effects and minimizes the cross-talk EMF effects that occurs in all other Phono/RCA plugs.
  • The Head Assembly jaw structure has been redesigned, and mechanically improved, to allow an easy snap-like connection to a Phono/RCA socket, ensuring an ultimate connection without damage to the Phono/RCA socket.
  • The Housing now uses 2 screws to secure the cable sheath to the Harmony®Plug housing.
  • Extremely high temperature melting point thermoplastic polymer is used, with excellent electrical and mechanical characteristics, which easily adjusts to your Phono/RCA socket to provide a secure snap-like fit that is easy to disconnect.
  • Having a significantly higher characteristic impedance than conventional RCA plugs makes the Harmony®Plug an ideal connector for Digital Interconnects requiring RCA connectivity in either 50, 75 or 110 ohm applications. Due to the high conductivity rating of the materials used for the conductors in the Copper Harmony, JITTER may/will be significantly reduced.
