Semi-balanced terminations require a dual core cable such as the D102 MK III and will work to better effect with regular unbalanced domestic Hi-Fi appliances than unbalanced mono core terminations. Semi-balanced terminations have better isolation from external frequencies than their unbalanced monocore counter parts and will also carry coaxial and video signals.

Audio file”Having used a pair for morethan six months in various systems which included mid-priced sources andamplifications to high-end components, I found the102s to be neutral without emphasis on any specific spectrum of theaudio bandwidth. It provided a fairly honest view of your source components…the 102 prefers to carefully balance both frequencyextremes. In terms of character, it…proved to be friendly withvalve components. Used between pre and power amplifiers, it retained a sense ofair and detail with much confidence while stereo imaging was very well handled.    I recommendit whole-heartedly to audiophiles out there who long for a pretty impressiveand neutral cable …

Hi-Fi Choice
Original Review from Hi-Fi Choice: Van den Hul D – 102III HYBRID: A cable with everything: good bass, treble, imaging andnaturalness.Van den Hul has been instrumental in investigating conductors apart from theusual copper and silver. The whole subject of conductor material is still wideopen to debate, but van den Hul felt that there was a common and undesirablesignature to all metal-conductor cables, so set about constructing cables withcarbon-fibre conductors instead.The D – 102 III HYBRID is one of these;although it is, in fact, a hybrid, mixing carbon fibre with more conventionalsilverplated copper. Construction is pseudo-balanced, with Teflon insulation.Capacitance, dielectric loss and microphony are all low.
This was, by a small but decisive margin, the best cable in the test – a resultall the more creditable given this wire’s relatively modest cost. Whether dueto the carbon fibre or not, its sound was solid, clear and effortless at alltimes, with basically nothing to criticise. Bass was extended as far as any andfully resonant, but at the same time under control. Midrange was uncoloured andnatural, helping voices sound live and unprocessed, while treble was sweet anddetailed, conveying alike the delicate tinkle of small percussion instrumentsand the rasp of muted trumpet. In fact, this is pretty much as good as cablegets, and is therefore a Best Buy.

Summarized Review “Van Den Hul d-102 Mk III is a seemingly unbeatable analogue designthats suitable for anything from a phono stage to a SACD player and all pointsin between. We found it hard to criticise this cable detail is very good andtonality is neutral across the board. Treble extension is exemplary which mightexplain how it manages to create such impressive image depth and width. Allthings considered, this is a first-rate performer and a bargain to boot”

Technical Information

These cables are terminated in a semi-balanced configuration for regular domestic Hi-Fi use.

                                                                

Dual Core

A dual core (two sets of intertwined wires, each their own plastic housing) cable as opposed to the standard mono core Hi-Fi fare,thus affording an opportunity for a variance in wiring.
Van den Hulshow the most effective variant, which is the way these cables arewired.
If both cores are not used then the benefits of a semi-balanced configuration (less noise, better shielding and higher voltage handling capacity) are lost.
Dual core cables support fully balanced XLR connections which require two cores.

ConnectorsYou are buying Van Den Hul D102 MK III Hybrid halogen free cable with gold plated connectors.These connectors have nickel plated bodies (barrels) andgold plated contacts. The business end of a connector is small and standardized to fit into it’s female RCA equivalent in your equipment; the pin and sleeve which you can see on the diagram is what the wires are attatched to.  The rest of what you see (the barrel) is a handle cum dust cover…
To attract you into spending more money than you would possibly need to on a standardized part, manufacturers will give you a big gold plated ‘barrel’.Van den Hul’s over-priced, and over-sized RCA barrels are replaced by Neutrik’s (a world leading German brand) Rean connectors.
Van den Hul use Neutrik’s XLR connectors (a three pin connector used mainly for studio applications) on the XLR versions of all the dual core cables they produce.

Directional

These are directional cables, so one end (the Ground End) is marked with a sticker which has ‘Ground End’ and an arrow printed on it, indicating where the connector on that end goes and in which direction the signal should travel .
The Ground end always goes into your source (CD, gramophone, tape deck etc…) and the other goes into  whatever is next in your chain of equipment (amp, pre amp, external DAC etc…).

‘Burn in’ Time

Being Brand new, it is recommended that these cables be ‘Burned in’ (the passing of a signal through a new cable for a recommended amount of time) for a continuous period for them to reach their maximum potential. I have never done this myself but some of my customers swear by it and a few have been surprised (to say the least) by the results.

The recommended burn in time according to my customers is 100 hours…although some said they were very happy after 50 hours.
Best way to do it…leave a CD to repeat itself all night and while you’re at work and you’ll be there before you know it.
