The SWIFT analog interconnect has been in development during 2008, and went into production in early
2009. The main design goal was the correct tonality and good
resolution - combined with a very good price-to-performance ratio.
The result is appropriate: the SWIFT does nothing wrong: while the
technology is different, SWIFT can be considered a simplified
version of Metacarbon, and it sounds as such: about as neutral and
as extended, but not as transparent and not as refined. The V16
version is the latest, up to date, revision of SWIFT
interconnects, and features improved jacketing (optimized
damping), improved and further customized RCA and XLR
connectors. Unlike the previous revisions, each SWIFT V16 pair
is now individually serial numbered.
