Positive Feedback Review of Au24 SX Interconnect, Phono and Speaker Cables 06/2018


“The Audience cable interconnect didn’t disappoint. The cable’s rich and liquid nature and luscious midrange came through loud and clear. These cables really allowed the system to paint a realistic picture of the Maya McCraven’s quartet of cello, bass, drums and vibes performing in your listening room. That’s coupled with the Audience’s remarkable ability to dig deep down into the mix and capture inner detail such as instruments playing ever-so-softly in the background”

HIFIQC Review of Au24 SX Cables 06/2018


“You won’t find me endorsing many cable designs, simply because I have rarely heard such an improvement and balance to the presentation. With the Audience Au 24 SX, I have found a new friend in reproducing the magic of the original recording. It has been my pleasure to finally find a cable design that I can truly live with. The team at Audience has delivered a easily manageable cable system that extracts the whole performance from your recordings/stereo equipment with balance and grace.”

Audience Introduces Its Hidden Treasure
High-Performance In-Wall AC Power Cable

San Marcos, CA, June 26, 2018Audience today announced the introduction of of its Hidden Treasure in-wall power cable, designed to provide the highest level of AC power delivery in custom-installation audio, home theater, multiroom, architectural and other in-wall applications.

Audience’s Hidden Treasure connects from a home’s circuit breaker box to the user’s audio or home theater system. It is UL CL2-approved for use in 120-volt and 220-volt AC in-wall applications. Hidden Treasure is engineered for maximum signal conductivity, durability and shielding from electrical interference.

“Our new Hidden Treasure power cable is an all-out effort to provide a truly high-performance AC power wire for in-wall systems,” said John McDonald, president of Audience. “It’s the result of extensive testing and evaluation and what we’ve learned from our team’s more than 20 years of combined experience in designing our world-renowned AC powerChords.”

Hidden Treasure features three 10 AWG stranded 99.9999 percent pure oxygen-free copper (OFC) conductors. The wire is cryogenically treated to relieve stresses that can be imparted to the wire during manufacturing and to re-align the microstructure in the copper for improved conductivity. The conductors are foil-shielded to provide rejection from external electrical noise. The dielectric (insulation) is made from XLPE cross-linked polyethylene insulation with a PVC sleeve for unmatched durability.

Hidden Treasure is flexible and easy to install and has a diameter of approximately 0.75 inches (18 mm).

McDonald concluded, “We are extremely happy with what we’ve achieved and with the benefits that Hidden Treasure can provide to an in-wall audio or A/V system.”

Audience Hidden Treasure AC power cable is currently available at a suggested retail price of $22 per foot.

Speaker, $3290/2.5m;
Interconnect RCA, $1800/1m

Audience’s Latest flagship wire offers midrange weight and sweetness, vivid dynamic contrasts, excellent transient speed, sensitivity to delicate volume gradations, and a brilliance that casts light into the deepest corners of the soundstage, restoring air and lift to harmonics. A particular strength for all Audience cables is an often hard-to-achieve blend of tactile presence and back-of-the-hall reverberation. The Au24 SX strikes a fluid and natural balance of ease, articulation, and immersiveness. Flexible and easy to handle, too.
