2021 TAS Editors’ Choice Award for Au24SE+ USB Cables


Audience Au24SE+ USB
$895/1m

This USB cable is simply sensational in every way. The Au24SE+ USB’s clarity, dimensionality, and gorgeous timbre put it in a class by itself. It seems to have no signature of its own, but rather more transparently conveys what’s coming from your computer. The dual-cable design separates the signal-carrying and power-carrying conductors.

2021 TAS Editors’ Choice Award for Au24 SX Cables


Audience Au24 SX
$1999/1m pr. RCA interconnect; $2460/1m pr. balanced; $3616/2.5m speaker

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 cast 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 black-of-the-hall reverberation. The Au24 SX strikes a fluid and natural balance of ease, articulation, and immersiveness. Flexible and easy to handle, too. NG, 269

2021 TAS Editors’ Choice Award for OHNO Speaker Cables


Audience OHNO
$220/1m (+$68/m) interconnect; $395/1m (+$152/m) OHNO III Speaker

Audience’s value line of OHNO cables runs counter to the idea that great wire always requires heavy jacketing and complex conductor geometries. Sonically these featherweights were quick and extended with well-focused imaging and dimensionality. Most significantly they were not additive, nor did they crimp dynamics. They were also easy to position for desktop use, offering an unerring sense of musicality without busting the budget. NG, 264

Positive Feedback Review of frontRow Loudspeaker Cables


“The frontRow suite achieves the implicit goal of every serious high-end review—fidelity to the source. It is uncanny how they make the footprint of electrical devices almost undetectable, bringing you closer to the source. To a very large extent the frontRow speaker cables and interconnects step aside. (The powerChords do it, too, but have more color and personality.) The frontRow suite completely satisfies the primary Golden Rule.”
