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 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. NG, 269

Audience Sets a New Standard in Audio Cable Performance with Debut of Its frontRow Interconnects, Loudspeaker and Power Cables


San Marcos, CA, January 30, 2019 – Audience today announced it is now shipping its new top of the line frontRow audio cables, a complete range of balanced and unbalanced interconnect, phono, digital, speaker and power cables that incorporate the company’s newest MORRE (Musically Optimized Reduction of Resistive Energies) technologies to deliver extraordinary new levels of musical accuracy.

“Our new frontRow cables build upon the performance of our previous award-winning Au24 SX models and are a major advance in what we thought was sonically possible,” said John McDonald, president of Audience.

Audience’s MORRE technologies are the result of more than 22 years of experience in cable design. Every aspect of frontRow cables has been considered and refined, including cable geometries, metallurgy, connectors, shielding, dielectric and jacketing materials and the interaction between conductors – even details like the mechanical resonant frequencies of the materials used.

MORRE provides a dramatic lowering of the noise floor and distortion artifacts. The sonic result is improved low-level resolution and wider dynamic contrasts, and a remarkably lifelike musical presentation with more realistic “3-D” imaging and soundstaging.

To ensure maximum signal integrity, frontRow cables utilize conductive material made from modified 99.9999% Ohno Continuous Cast (OCC) copper, 99.9999% pure silver or high-purity silver-plated copper using the optimum material for each frontRow cable model. The cables use XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) dielectric material, chosen for its superior insulating properties and low microphonics, as well as Teflon and other materials. Depending on the model and application, MORRE can use

twinaxial, coaxial, proprietary Perfect Lay, Double Cylindrical, Double Helix or other custom-stranded multi-conductor wire geometries. All configurations are designed to maintain maximum signal purity and reduce noise.

Careful attention is paid to connector design and construction. Every point of contact between the connectors and the conductors has been optimized to avoid the introduction of noise, interference, signal loss and other unwanted effects, employing metals including tellurium and beryllium copper, rhodium, gold and silver. frontRow cables utilize either proprietary solderless connections or state-of-the-art soldering materials and techniques.

frontRow cables are treated with Audience’s EHVP Extreme High-Voltage Process, which applies high voltages in specific combinations. This proprietary technique aligns the crystalline structure of the various metals used in the cables to create more efficient “pathways” for signals to travel through the materials. To further maximize performance, the cables receive Audience’s Deep Cryo II treatment, which relieves stresses that are created in the drawing and manufacturing of the wire, strengthens the conductors and provides additional benefits.

Audience frontRow cables are meticulously manufactured to the highest standards. Every cable is tested and burned in for at least three days.

Audience frontRow cables and interconnects are currently available. A one-meter pair of frontRow cables with RCA terminations has a suggested retail price of $3,300 per pair. Please consult Audience or an authorized Audience dealer for pricing of other lengths and configurations.

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.”
