The Old-world Interconnection Audio Cable
The humble interconnection cable has not changed for nearly one hundred years. And why should it? It is designed simply to transfer analogue audio signal from the source component to the audio amplifier. Until today, the only difference between various brands of interconnection cables is the materials used in those cables. copper vs silver, multi-strain vs single strain, normal plugs vs fancy plugs.
This old design was ok from 1940 to 2000 when 90% of audiophiles use these three items as their source component; Turntable, CD Player, DAC. And only a handful of brands are considered as serious high-end. As such, the chance of having well-matched components in an audiophile system was good.
A New World of Audio System Mismatch
Since then, there is an explosion in the number of source components manufacturer by countless brands big and small. Source components include DAP, smartphone, tablet, laptop, computer soundcard, media streamer, smart TV and more. These devices have very different output designs. Furthermore, even CD Player and DAC designs now come in much greater varieties. Battery vs linear vs switching power supply, tube vs solid-state, discrete vs IC. Each of these again have very different output designs. Learn More [+]
This varieties makes matching two components confusing and frustrating. Most audiophiles rely on reading countless online reviews. In another word, they rely on luck to find the perfect match. When mismatch exist, there is listening fatigue, a lack of defined bass, a digital sounding midrange with missing texture and emotion and a top end that is not crisp and sweet.
A New World of Snake-oil Audio Cables
Instead of addressing system mismatch, audiophile cable brands want you to think that their overpriced cables can magically improve the situation. They often create myths about the materials used in their cables and how these exotic materials can improve signal flow and system performance. The fact of the matter is that those so call exotic materials are not really exotic and certainly do not deserve their asking price. At best, they make a slightly auditable difference, but in situations where there is system mismatch, there is nothing these cables can do regardless of materials used.
The Ultimate System Interconnection Cable
The Burson Cable+ is the world’s first active interconnection cable and we use engineering, not magical material to ensure system matching. The Cable+ does not colour the sound, but actively ensures that you are hearing 100% of your system. Regardless of their brand, circuitry design and power supply types, a perfectly matched audio system is always guaranteed. This is the freedom audiophiles have been wishing for!
Once the Cable+ is in place, sonic details once lost, will be fully reproduced to create a complete experience. Play familiar – very familiar – material, and you will hear the finest details fully resolved, while the fundamentals take on a new level of life and solidity. That “harsh digital sound” replaced by a wider and more three-dimensional soundstage.
