Neutrik will feature the NP*X Series, a new design for professional phone plugs, at AES 2004 (booth #1318). Previously introduced as the C+ Series, the NP*X meet the most recent requirements for highest packing density: 15.88 mm.
The new design was created by Andreas Batliner, an industrial designer with Messrs Id Connect. The new NP*X Series features an improved chuck-type strain relief, which reportedly offers higher cable-retention force and the same features of Neutrik’s current NP*C phone plug series.
The NP*X phone plug is all-metal and available in mono and stereo versions with nickel or gold-plated contacts and nickel, black or velour chrome housings.
