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.

Audience adeptResponse aR12-TSSOX

To Greg Weaver’s ear, Audience’s new aR12-TSSOX power conditioner represents a substantial improvement over its predecessors, so much so that it would be fair to say that it borders on an order of magnitude advance. This is a world-class device, deserving your full attention. Give one a listen– perhaps the 6- or 12-socket variety –but be prepared to buy it. If you are anything like GW, there is no chance it will come out of your system once it is in place! GW, (268)
