Audience Introduces Its Au24 SE USB Cable for Improved Sound from Digital Audio

San Marcos, CA, April 13, 2015 –Audience today announced the introduction of its Au24 SE USB cable, a premium-quality USB interconnect designed to deliver superior sound quality from digital music files and source components with USB connectivity.

The new Audience Au24 SE USB is engineered for ultimate timing conveyance of digital signals and highly effective shielding against EMI and RFI. It employs a “dual-cable” construction, with separated conductors for the data (signal) path and for the power path, a configuration that ensures the best-possible signal integrity and isolation.

Audience Wins Multiple 2015 Editors’ Choice Awards from The Absolute Sound!

absolute_editors_choice_2015_reviewBelow are quotes from The Absolute Sound 2015 Editors’ Choice Product Awards:

 

 


The ONE, as you might infer from its name, is a single full-range driver shoehorned into a small box. The driver itself is the same unit, the A3S, that Audience uses in its flagship $72,000 16+16 speaker. According to Audience, the A3S has exceptionally flat response, claimed to be +/-3db from 40Hz to 22kHz. Be that as it may, properly set up The ONE is the best desktop speaker reviewer Steven Stone has heard (after the Audience 1+1). SS, 236

 

 

 

 

 

 


 


Audience 1+1
When SS reviewed the single-full-range-driver Audience “The ONE” speakers, he was convinced that they were the best nearfield monitors he’d ever heard. His time with the larger Audience 1+1 speakers has led him to place the 1+1 above the “The ONE” at the top of his own personal “best” nearfield loudspeaker list. Just like “The ONE” speakers, the Audience 1+1 creates a three-dimensional soundstage that allows you to listen deeply into the nuances of a mix or a live performance. SS,246

Audience Au24 SE Cables
Audience has long insisted that mammoth wires are not only superfluous but can be a hindrance to good sound. Its slender Au24 SE cables and interconnects make a strong case that size does not always matter. While they do not appear to deliver as full a sound as some of their competitors, the Audience Au24 SE assemblage offers some of everything- a wide and deep soundstage, a goodly amount of detail, and superb transparency. When their relatively modest price is factored in, the Audience line only becomes even more impressive for its ability to compete with much pricier top-end cables. JHb, 249

Audience Au24 SE USB
This new USB cable is simply sensational in every way. The Au24 SE 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. RH, review forthcoming.

Audience powerChord SE
The Audience powerChords offer bass clarity, weight, and pitch resolution that place them at or near the top of the affordable-power-cord pack. Except for a slight treble congestion and somewhat laid-back overall presentation, there is little deviation from tonal neutrality, NG, 208

The SE brings to the table new connectors with higher quality metallurgy and lower mass terminations making for an across-the-board sonic improvement to an already excellent line of products. Offered in three versions: low-power for DACs, preamps, and phonostages; medium-power for lower-powered integrated amplifiers; and high-power for power amplifiers.

Au24 SE Cables Review by Doug Blackburn, SoundStage ULTRA

ultraaudio_101614
“Audience’s Au24 SE powerChords, interconnects, and speaker cables are the most satisfying wiring products I’ve used in the last 39 years. They sit at the pinnacle of cable performance, and provide an attractive combination of big spaces, a very neutral sound and marvelously balanced performance, from the deepest bass to the highest treble”.

Positive Feedback Review of Au24 SE Phono Cables

positive_feedback_logo
“Audience has clearly broken the price/performance barrier with their newest Au24 SE phono cables. No matter which cartridge is mounted in the 3D arm—the Lyra, Transfiguration or Koetsu—the Audience brings out the best attributes of each. The dynamics, solidity and resolution of the Atlas: the imaging, preciseness and low level resolution of the Transfiguration; and the realism and sense of space of the Koetsu. Without doubt, these phono cables are clearly at home in any analog system and really bring the music to life.”

Testimonial for SE Cables and PowerChords

John,
The Au24 SE power cords I purchased last month from Audience, including the SE upgrade I made on my standard AU24 power cord that came with my Audience TSS power conditioner are arguably the most important upgrade I’ve ever made to my system.The SE’s also raise the performance of your TSS power conditioners to a whole new level of performance. A real synergy there. These SE power cords are simply unflappable. No matter how dynamic, complex or brash the music, the SE’s never lose their composure or become strident. They’re masterful at capturing the natural timbres of brass, stringed and woodwind instruments and the human voice. Very important attributes for those of us who love Jazz, Classical, Opera and acoustic music etc. Excuse my rambling , but I was just listening to the Mahler’s incredible 9th symphony and felt inspired to share my thoughts with you!!

Thanks John,
Drew

Audience Products Testimonial

JAW DROPPING!!!…I had to collect myself and come back to real time – I was floored! This is the reaction I had when I first became introduced to an Audience AV product. I can still remember the moment as if it’d occurred minutes ago – the experience was that profound! I’m speaking of the Audience AU24 e speaker wire I’d auditioned in my home for the very first time. I’d heard that buying a better speaker wire could make a world of difference in my system. I’d asked my dealer to send me his top choices for speaker wire from 4 high end manufacturers. While all were quite nice NOTHING came close to the Audience AU24 e. And here’s the best part…they only sounded better and better as time passed. I immediately ordered the AU24 SE speaker wire and never looked back. Today, I own Audience AdeptResponse power conditioners, AU24 SE speaker wire, interconnects, digital cables and power cords. And the best part? Well let’s just say this… the window cleaner was cleaning windows in my home the other day while I had music playing on my hi- fi. He remarked “your wife has a strikingly beautiful voice!”. He did not realize it was the hi fi. It sounded so lifelike and real he was convinced the singing was live. Bottom line: Audience plays an integral role in bringing the music to life…making it real!
