The cable just arrived and I put on Dianna Krall on my headphones. I am amazed at the natural timbres and extended and detailed treble. I’ve never heard female vocals this good. Must be already broken in because this is freaking awesome!! John-thank you so much! Best $220 I’ve ever spent on audio. Scott

San Marcos, CA, August 12, 2013 – Audience today announced that its top of the line Au24 SE cables are now available in speaker cables, interconnects and power cords. Delivering a major step forward in musical accuracy, the expanded Au24 SE lineup includes speaker cables with spade lug and banana plug terminations, interconnects with RCA and XLR connectors and power cords with U.S. and European Schuko AC plugs.
Audience Au24 SE cables have been upgraded from previous models with ultra-low-mass, high-purity copper connectors that enable the passage of more low-level information in phono, line-level, speaker and power cord applications.
“The Au24 SE cables are the most significant advancement in cables Audience has ever made, and we don’t say that lightly,” noted John McDonald, president of Audience. “They improve upon the resolution of our already outstanding Au24e to offer an even more compelling and involving musical experience. The Au24 SE cables are something extraordinary and I’m confident that listeners will hear their special qualities immediately.”
“Now that we’re shipping Au24 SE in all speaker cable, interconnect and power cord types, listeners can wire their entire system from source to speaker and enjoy the full benefits Au24 SE provides – greater coherency and transparency, much more decay and subtle reverb cues for instruments and vocals, a greater sense of the room environment and dimensions on a recording, and a richer sound throughout the frequency spectrum.”
The Audience Au24 SE lineup is now available in all new cables. Please consult Audience or an authorized Audience dealer for pricing. Owners of Au24e and Au24 cables can have them upgraded to Au24 SE at prices ranging from $220 to $440; please consult Audience or an authorized Audience dealer for pricing. The Au24e speaker cables, interconnects and power cords will remain available.
“I just wanted to let you know that I received my SE upgraded Au24 interconnects and speaker cables and sat down for an hour of music to see if I could appreciate the difference. I might end up divorced as my wife has barely seen me since. I’m pulling out 40 year old LPs and experiencing them in a whole new way.”
“These upgrades are STUNNING. I’m not a musician and it’s hard to describe what I’m hearing, but everything sounds “organic” and just “right”. The level of detail and the width of the soundstage is remarkable. THANK YOU!!!” Tony Shefferd
“All of the Audience’s sterling qualities were evident right from the outset. The Audience is an extremely quiet and neutral cable. Its whiplash speed and transparency can become addictive, but it will not appeal to those searching for a cable that supplies additional perceived warmth or body. Instead, it exudes a quiet authority that makes it a very promising candidate for anyone searching for a first-rate phono cable”.

“With the Audience cables the music is more dynamic both on the macro and the micro scale. Attacks are sharper. Cymbal crashes are more startling. The music sounds more like what I hear in the concert hall. ”
