EWA Starting Point Interconnect
Introducing the EWA Starting Point Interconnects—available exclusively as single-ended (RCA) interconnects, these audio cables deliver a captivating performance that stands out by any measure.
Characterized by a truly delightful presentation of midrange detail, the Starting Point interconnects offer an admirably stable soundstage and exquisite detail retrieval. The top end is sweet and clear, avoiding stridency with bell-like clarity. The bass performance is remarkable, boasting true texture and impactful speed, making it an interconnect with excellent and well-defined dynamics.
What sets the EWA Starting Point interconnects apart is their remarkable ability to resolve complex musical passages with busy, layered tonality and multiple motifs. Equally adept at conveying less complex pieces, these interconnects bring textural detail and acoustic spaces between performers to the forefront. In all cases, Starting Point places the emphasis squarely on the music and the performer, laying bare their feelings and intentions.
Featuring a twin shield comprising conductive thermoplastic and an extremely tightly lapped copper shield, the cable effectively resists electrical losses and microphony. The shielding is meticulously specified, using very pure, oxygen-free copper. The conductor is crafted from the same multi-stranded material, enhanced with a five percent mix of ultra-pure silver.
As with all EWA products, these interconnects are meticulously handcrafted in the UK at the time of order. Once received, you have thirty days to immerse yourself in the listening experience and evaluate your new acquisition within the context of your own system. If, for any reason, the product falls short of your expectations, it can be returned for a full refund, excluding shipping costs. However, we are confident that the EWA Starting Point Interconnects will captivate your senses and become an integral part of your audio setup.
EWA Starting Point analogue interconnect (measured per metre):
L (inductance) signal: 1.0 µH
L (inductance) ground: 1.3 µH
C: (capacitance): 100 pF
R (resistance) signal: 2.5mΩ

Neutrik Rean gold plated RCA plugs.
Over 5000 mating cycles (5 - 20N mating force)
Contact resistance: ≤10mΩ
Insulation resistance: ≥2,000MΩ
Dielectric strength: 50Hz 0.5KVdc
Electrical damping mechanism tuned to the resonant (ringing) frequency of the cable (something all cables inherently have, although well above the hearing range), with the result that deleterious harmonics from that resonance are suppressed effectively.
