Higher Purity OCC Copper | XLPE Jacketing | New Geometry
The Audience AU24 line of interconnects has garnered much recognition and many awards over the years. It has become the reference interconnect for many audiophiles who prefer a copper interconnect that presents a balanced sound, full of dynamics and resolution.
For 2015, the Audience team has focused it's creative energy on developing a line of cables that substantially surpasses the highest level of performance ever achieved by their products. The end result has been the AU24 SX series of audio cables. The AU24 SX cables look similar to the past line of Au24 cables. However, you will easily hear that the new SX cables represent a substantial step forward in the natural, unimpeded and resolute delivery of the original sound field in recordings.
The enhanced performance of the AU24 SX cables is the result of sourcing higher purity OCC copper (6 nines), a higher quality of XLPE (cross linked polyethylene) insulation as well as making adjustments to geometry. Numerous wire samples were produced and tested to achieve the greatest performance possible. Anyone who has been a fan of any Audience Au24, Au24 e or Au24 SE cables should be thrilled when they hear the new SX line.
Audience has conducted considerable research into the electrical characteristics of phono cables and has concluded that a single cable cannot possibly serve as an optimal tone arm to phono stage interface. The different internal electrical characteristics of phono cartridges make choosing a cable designed to preserve and enhance those characteristics an all important issue. By choosing the wrong cable you can lose precious low level detail information that is essential to the overall sonic presentation.
For these reasons, Audience offers users of moving coil cartridges a choice of impedance-matched phono cables. Each model is designed to carefully optimize the electrical characteristics of the cartridge to the cable and to preserve signal flow to the phono stage without detrimental influences as follows:
• Low Z – for moving coil cartridges with internal resistance up to 30 ohms.
• High Z – for moving coil cartridges with internal resistance between 30 and 100 ohms.
1. Au24 SX Low Z Phono Cable - designed for low output moving coil cartridges with less than 30 ohms internal resistance. It offers the vinyl lover an optimized signal path to the phono stage without compromising the delicate phono level signal.
2. Au24 SX High Z Phono Cable - designed for low output moving coil cartridges with more than 30 ohms internal resistance. If offers the vinyl love an optimized signal path to the phono stage without compromising the delicate phono level signal.
