“While this cable is not inexpensive, at $1,100, it’s not crazy money, either. I’m keeping it as a reference in my AVID Volvere SP/Funk Firm FX•R/ Denon DL103R combination; it’s that spectacular”.

“The Au24e Low Z distinguished itself with the Dynavector XX2 MKII moving coil cartridge bringing a lot of life to music and an addictive desire to constantly renew the pleasure.”

Received the cables last week. I don’t listen to records (LPs) casually very often. So I was alert from the start picking up as many clues as I could. Initially I was impressed how the music presented all the frequencies not just opening up the top end as was indicated would happen. Yes that happened but I noted that I could hear into the middle ranges with more clarity as well as the bass coming and going quicker and in tune..
Several days were devoted to very pleasant listening until yesterday…… When I put on the remastered Joni Mitchell “Blue” album from Classic Records? Joni Mitchell records can be problematic because her voice in those days went clearly from alto to mezzo frequently within the same phrase. Listening, the mezzo has hither-to come out as shrill. Well, shrillness did not appear yesterday and instead I heard how well controlled her voice actually was during this period. Needless to say, the emotional impact is much stronger when you are not so distracted.
So.. Yeah I like the new phono cables a lot.
“In a system where balance is key, you could easily prefer these over any other cable out there, whatever the cost.”

“But the Audience loom performed beautifully, creating wonderful, evenly balanced sound regardless of whether they were paired with tubed or solid state components, monitors or floor standing speakers, and regardless of program material. “

Hi Dan, Yesterday I got the cables, so this was very quick from Audience to my home address. Sorry for getting on your nerves, but without the cables you cannot run your audio equipment! A big compliment for the upgrading: the difference is stunning! Really world class now! I could hear it within seconds after starting the first piece of music! It was really worth to do the upgrading! Best regards,

“Audience’s Au24e interconnects and speaker cables perform as well as any cables I’ve heard. What’s more, they compare favorably with other reference-quality cables, not only as an overall package of strengths and weaknesses, but line by line, in any sort of audiophile accounting.”

“After two months of listening on four systems, I can say these Au24e interconnects and AC cables are just stunningly neutral and musical.”

“The sound is fast, airy, and punchy. I liked the way it opens up the soundstage, particularly on classical music, where it allows you to hear row after row of an orchestra. Overall, the soundstage seems to be deeper than it is wide. Tonality is beyond reproach. It captures the bore of an instrument with great fidelity. What about bass? Can a diminutive cable create a big sound? Judging by the impact of the Au24, the answer is emphatically yes.”

“My summation of this review is quite simple really, buy them all together as a set and never look back. Working in unison they tended to create a sound I could live with and not want for anything more.”
