Newsletter 1/15/19: Introducing frontRow Cable Series

Dear Audio Enthusiast,

Audience set the bar high when we imagined a cable line superior to our award winning SX series. Building upon what we’ve learned through our years of research and refinement we are proud to announce the all new frontRow Flagship line of Audience cables; shattering what we thought was possible.

frontRow represents the highest level of performance in audio cable products available today. With attention to detail and with the introduction of MORRE, the umbrella name under which we have placed all of Audience’s new and most powerful technologies, every part and portion of frontRow is meticulously and painstakingly designed in our unabating pursuit of signal integrity.

MORREMusically Optimized Reduction of Resistive Energies, is the culmination of our proven technologies integrated into the frontRow series. From cable geometries, to connectors, metallurgy, contact points, to shielding, bend radius, dielectric, jacketing materials, interactions between conductors and types of conductors, material resonant frequencies even the smallest design aspects are carefully considered within the MORRE process; refined and strenuously tested in order to produce this unrivaled cable line.

All of this advancement in frontRow cable design and development opens up a musical performance that is startling in its life-like presentation; removing veils that obscure the essence of the artist’s intention and bringing you into the center of the experience.

Each and every frontRow cable added to your system will reveal just what you have been missing. With the removal of layers of distortion and a dramatic lowering of the noise floor; frontRow will allow you to hear increased dynamics and more low-level information retrieval; with air, space and 3-dimensional holographic imaging unlike you have experienced before.

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.”

Audience Introduces Its Hidden Treasure High-Performance In-Wall AC Power Cable

San Marcos, CA, June 26, 2018 – Audience today announced the introduction 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.

Audienceís Hidden Treasure connects from a homeís circuit breaker box to the userís 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 weíve learned from our teamís 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 weíve 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.

2018, 2017 TAS Editors’ Choice Award for Au24 SX Cables

Audience Au24 SX
Speaker, $3290/2.5m;
Interconnect RCA, $1800/1m
($2375/2m)

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 casts 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.

Audience Au24 SE Phono Cable
$1290/1m

The Audience phono cable, in a crowded field of contenders, soars above many of them with its alacrity and transparency.
