RE: Xhadow XLR Clone

Conductivity is not the ultimate aspect of what can make an audio connector sound good from an audiophile POV. Brass is often considered an inferior sounding base metal vs. phosphor bronze. Oyaide implements phosphor bronze as a base metal for their FOCUS 1 XLR connector, which is a much more expensive XLR connector than the Xhadow XLR clone. Many other audio connector manufacturers also feature phosphor bronze as a base metal.
