  • Van Den Hul MC-One Special

    In a range that includes models costing thousands of pounds, the MC One Special is a relatively affordable example. It's a 'selected' version of the MC10 Special, a hand-built cartridge using silver wire coils and a boron cantilever (the tube that connects the stylus to the coils). Because of the relatively wide sample variations with cartridges, it's not unusual for makers to charge a bit more for selected samples of a particular model - ones that are found to perform better than the rest. Grado is another manufacturer that does this - the Prestige Gold on page 46 is a 'selected' version of the Prestige Silver, for which an additional £20 is charged

  • Van Den Hull THE WAVE (HALOGEN FREE) RCA

    By introducing The WAVE we celebrate 25 years of GreenCare; van den Hul’s own green program that warrants that from the first till the last day of existence, each cable will not harm the environment at all. This has been one of our important design criteria in the past quarter of a century.

    The WAVE is a coaxial, triple shielded interconnect designed to simply outperform its price class with superior qualities.

    Being not just any other "coax cable", The WAVE's finely balanced design and materials inside comprise more than 25 years of experience and material knowledge, resulting into impeccable transmission quality.

    Another strong aspect of The WAVE is that its high natural bandwidth and excellent noise rejection properties make it applicable in a wide variation of audio as well as 75 Ohm video interconnect situations.

    The WAVE is ideal for use as an audio interconnect in wiring your home theatre setup, in going from CD or DVD player to amplifier or in any other hi-fi line level wiring application.

    Due to the fact that it's also a highly accurate 75 Ohm cable, The WAVE is equally perfect in AV applications like antenna/cable TV, video, surround and S/PDIF digital audio connections.

    The WAVE features:

    • A robust and massive 0.9 mm Ø central conductor made of dense silver coated, high purity, matched crystal oxygen free copper provides optimal signal transparency and fidelity.
    • A specially foamed dielectric insulation material minimizes high frequency signal attenuation.
    • Not less than three shielding layers: With the outer and inner layer made of the same high quality conductor material as the central conductor, this unique combination achieves first-rate interference suppression and highly linear conductance.Often overlooked is the fact that a coaxial cable shield needs to both carry the return signal as well as to keep noise out. The WAVE's triple shield design separates these functions, yielding great gain in performance.
    • -ts HULLIFLEX ® cable jacket provides maximum ruggedness and optimal lifespan protection.


    All materials are environmentally friendly and contain no halogens.

  • Van Den Hul Colibri Signature Stradivarius

    van den Hul has a new flagship for its range of phono cartridges, the van den Hul Colibri XGW Signature Stradivarius (pictured above).

    A.J. van den Hul’s original Colibri cartridge first appeared in the mid-1990s and was named after a hummingbird native to the Americas. A.J. says this latest version of that original cartridge, the XGW Signature Stradivarius edition, is based on everything he’s learned over the past 40 years, and is the best phono cartridge he’s ever built.

    The body of the van den Hul Colibri XGW Signature Stradivarius is made from cross-grained Brazilian Pau wood, a high density wood that is often used in the bows of stringed instruments. It’s coated with what van den Hul calls a ‘Stradivarius’ lacquer, named after the famous violin maker, Antonio Stradivari. ‘van den Hul applies three separate layers of this secret formula lacquer and each layer takes several weeks to fully cure and harden, meaning that every cartridge body undergoes months of work before any further construction can even begin,’

  • Van Den Hul The Black Beauty Special X

    Our top model custom handbuilt phono cartridge, featuring matched crystal gold coils and 0.50 mV/channel output. On special request medium and high output versions are available; (Their variations in other parameters are minor to those described here for the 0.50 mV/channel standard version). The BLACK BEAUTY Special-X is a resolution improved version of the GRASSHOPPER IV GLA, which refinements were only possible to be created after having switched to the entirely metal free and extremely revealing The THIRD ® loudspeaker cable in Mr. van den Hul’s audio system. The BLACK BEAUTY Special-X’s refined body is made of black PolyCarbonate with about the same construction as the GRASSHOPPER IV GLA. The BLACK BEAUTY Special-X sets new sonic standards in analog reproduction. Listening impressions are like being in the concert hall with a very precise projection of the instruments, the acoustics and even the conductor in space. The music as a whole sounds extremely realistic and very convincing with a lot of authority, especially in the bass and lower midrange; the high frequencies are very pure and extremely nice structured. The differences with the GRASSHOPPER IV GLA are: -Improved magnetic layout, -construction and -properties. -A reduced cantilever length. Due to points 1 and 2 the resolution is higher. The suspension uses a very special damping rubber. There is more “space” between the musical instruments and vocals. The output is reduced from 0.65 mV/ch. to 0.50 mV/ch. by using double layer Matched Crystal Gold coils on a cross-shaped armature, both producing a higher channel separation. Learn More

  • Van Den Hul The First ultimate MK II RCA

    THE FIRST ® ULTIMATE (METAL FREE AND HALOGEN FREE) 

    The FIRST ® Ultimate is a threefold heavier shielded version of our highly praised classic The FIRST ® (world’s first METAL FREE interlink) and has been designed for highest quality (unbalanced / asymmetric) line level audio and SPDIF digital audio connections.

    With The FIRST ® Ultimate the sonic results are so different and also so much better than found with any metal product we know of, that we think this is a complete breakthrough in cable technology.
    Besides the many highly innovative technical aspects of this product, its sonic aspects are even more attractive:
    Especially the lack of dynamic compression on higher signal levels, the extended low level information and the total lack of any harshness make this cable so different from any other product known so far.
    And for critical listeners with high demands on spatial reproduction, this is your final choice; no other product so far produced, renders so much spatial information as The FIRST ® Ultimate.

    The basic conductor material is Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC).

    • The coaxial constructed The FIRST ® Ultimate has a LSC centre conductor with 12,000 individually insulated 7 micron strands with a total diameter of 1 mm. The individual strand insulation prevents electrons to cross from fibre to fibre. The direct result is that electrons exclusively move trough the 7 micron strands in one dimension. Side movements are virtually impossible. This prevents a lot of audio problems.

    Sonic result: a much cleaner sound reproduction.

    The center core insulation is made of polyethylene foam to achieve a low capacitance between the inner and outer group with minimal dielectric absorption.

    • In difference to our The FIRST ®, The FIRST ® Ultimate’s outer braiding, functioning as screen and signal return, is made of 6 (instead of 2) layers of braided LSC fibres. Together 114,000 individually insulated fibres.

    The jacket is made of light yellow coloured HULLIFLEX ® 4 with black type printing.
    HULLIFLEX ® 4 provides a superb mechanical protection and exhibits a very high chemical stability.

    The result of all this innovative work is a product without any defects. Thus far in any combination of equipment, the improvements were very clearly detectable, and this not just for experienced listeners.

    The FIRST ® Ultimate performs equipment independently. All owners will be really happy with their sound reproduction for the first time in their life. Also as a digital interlink, The FIRST ® Ultimate performs unsurpassed. The typical interface induced jitter-distortion is definitively finished.

  • Van Den Hul THE D - 102 III Hybrid (Halogen Free) XLR

    With our ever continuing technical improvements, it is logical to replace the already since 1982 available D - 102 Series (after 24 upgrades in the meantime) by an actual HYBRID version. Together with our Linear Structured Carbon ® technology, we have therefore applied some number of strands from our highly acclaimed 3T-technology into the new D-102 III Hybrid.

    The D - 102 III HYBRID is a warm yellow-orange colored very flexible balanced interconnect with a 3 layer shielding.

    • The 2 centre conductors are made of 40 dense and very pure silver coated strands made of a very high grade Matched Crystal (MC) OFC. Over each centre conductor an extra Linear Structured Carbon ® (LSC) saturated layer is applied.
      This extra layer of LSC highly improves the quality of the signal transmission by performing electrical bridging on micro-scale and by converting the external magnetic field close to the conductors into an electrical signal again.
    • 4 strands of 3T have been applied into the design. 3T: True Transmission Technology offers a much higher resolution and detail compared to any other metal technology used so far.
    • The resistance of each centre conductor is 5.5 Ohm/100 meter.
    • The capacitance between the 2 internal conductors is a very low 37 pF/meter; so in balanced operation, even in rather high impedant circuitry, the overall losses and/or phase-shift remain very low.

    In unbalanced operation the two internal conductors can simply be taken together with the shield acting as the signal return, though the better and preferred layout (which we apply) has the shield only connected to signal ground at the signal source side (marked by a ground-end marking sticker) and one of the internal conductors functions as signal return.

    • The insulation of the two centre conductors is made of polyethylene foam; one in white, the other in brown.
    • Surrounding the centre conductors, special treated artificial filler fibres provide a perfect protection against losses caused by increased humidity over a longer period.
    • The triple shielding consists of 2 helical layers with a total of 180 dense and very pure silver coated strands made of a very high grade of Matched Crystal (MC) OFC with an extra layer of LSC saturated tape in between.

    The warm yellow-orange colored jacket is made of our HULLIFLEX ®.
    The external diameter of the D - 102 III HYBRID is 7.25 mm.; a size which perfectly matches our C - 7.3 RCA type connectors.

  • Van Den Hul 3T The River Hybrid RCA

    3T THE RIVER HYBRID (HALOGEN FREE)

    Our coaxial entry level interconnect model with both center core and shielding made of 3T conductors

    • The two center conductors are made of a 900 micron 3T single stranded conductor and individually coated with an extra L. S. C. layer. 
    • Reduced capacitive load due to the enlarged distance between the center conductors and the shield (screen) 
    • The shielding (screening) consists of four even layers: two made of heavy silver coated high quality copper multi-strand conductors and the other two are made of L. S. C. 
    • After a run-in (brake-in, burn-in) time of three to five hours you’ll be travelling through the dramatic improvement of the sound transmission. Destination: there where the music was first performed and registered.
