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

Audience Au24 SE powerChord
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.

Audience aR2p Power Conditioner
Used with a CD player, the aR2p-Audience’s compact, dual-outlet power conditioner and isolation device-enhanced soundstaging dimensionality, and depth.

Audio Video Revolution Review of aR2p Power Conditioner

avrev_logo
“Audiophile power conditioning products are generally categorized as accessories, but when they are as well designed and executed as Audience products, I believe they become integral parts of a high-end system. From my experience with Audience power products, they provide immediately identifiable benefits with absolutely no down side.”

Review aR6-TSS: Robert Harley once said to me “You need a power conditioner.”

absolutesoundNewRed
“Like TAS editor Robert Harley once said to me “You need a power conditioner.” I have one now. It’s the Audience aR6-TSS.

With all my components plugged into the Audience conditioner, violins were unfailingly silkier, voices and instruments emerged from a blacker sonic background with more nuance and dimension to them, soundstaging was grander, and imaging and spatial cues startling. The aR6-TSS contributed a remarkable refinement and brought real precision to my system.”

SoundStage! HIFI Online Reviews aR12-TS

soundstagehifi
“As I continued listening, it became clear that the Audience’s levels of midrange and lower-treble resolution were standard-setting — again, that vanishing noise floor paid big dividends in the listening chair.

The upper midrange and lower treble were nuanced, finely shaded, and highly resolved, presenting harmonic decay and inner detail that I’d never heard with any other conditioner.

The decays of the piano’s upper registers, previously obscured by a fine layer of glare, were more fully illuminated and harmonically developed with the aR12-TS in the system. I felt I could see into the lowest, previously obscured levels of harmonics of pianos, guitars, cymbals, and even voices. Piano lovers will love what the Audience does. ”
