OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) Cable with Gold Plated Connectors

In an attempt to get better performance OFC cable is sometimes used instead of standard cable. OFC stands for Oxygen Free Copper which is a type of copper manufactured to specific standards with the intention of improving conductivity.

Both RCA cables and TRS cables can be OFC. Frequently manufacturers will provide gold plated connectors too to further improve performance. OFC cables are a premium product and this is usually reflected in the price.
