Neutrik unveiled its next generation of XLR cable connectors —the NC**XX series—during the Winter NAMM 2005 Convention last week.
Similar in style to the NP*X series of quarter inch phone plugs, the NC**XX series will be available in 3 to 7 pole configurations. The compact die cast shell has internal threads that mate with the external threads on the boot to eliminate damage sometimes found on exposed threads. It still incorporates Neutrik’s chuck-type strain relief and will provide stylish color-coding on the boot. Additional features include female cage type contact to increase conductivity and reduce wear of the male contacts, and a new ground contact that will provide better integrity between the chassis and cable connectors. The NC**XX series is available in nickel housing with silver contacts, black metal housing with silver contacts and black metal housing with gold contacts.
