JEWEL CableLifter Review by Newstips


Newstips Review 4: “Audience AV Jewel cable lifter Audience AV caters to extreme audiophiles who are intolerant of the least little bit of extraneous noise or impurity in their listening, and in what may be their least-complicated, least-tech product ever, they sent us their new Jewel cable lifters. Those extreme audiophiles tend to be uncompromising in their cabling, using power cables and speaker wires that are of a considerably larger diameter than what less-demanding listeners employ and, as a result, they’re heavy. Over the years, there have been several offerings of cable lifters that raise those cables off the ground and, when placed near their point of connection (power outlet or speaker terminals), help reduce the strain on those connections that result from the weight of those cables. In this realm, spousal approval is a factor of continuing significance, so these are glass cubes, roughly 2 inches on a side, and with a gently grooved top; at a distance, they look like crystal, making them less disruptive to décor. To the uneducated, they look like uppity cigar holders. Bottom line: Jewel cable lifters from Audience AV were born to reduce noise, both from connections and from significant others.”

Audience Introduces its JEWEL CableLifter

San Marcos, CA, August 26, 2020 – Audience today announced the introduction of its JEWEL CableLifter, designed to raise cables off floors, and distance the cables from each other.

 The new JEWEL CableLifter is ideal for use underneath power cords, speaker cables and interconnects. Elegant and understated in appearance and made from an attractive clear material, the CableLifters are created with the goal of improving sound quality in high-end audio systems by reducing proximity to interference like conductive concrete slabs and to other electrical cables.

In addition, Audience’s JEWEL CableLifter is perfect for use under AC power cords, especially heavier ones, to keep them from sagging in the AC outlet and to ensure maximum electrical contact. CableLifters also give a system a neat, “finished” appearance.

“Many audiophiles recognize the use of cable lifters as a useful refinement in extracting the last bit of performance from their systems,” said John McDonald, president of Audience. “By raising the cables off the floor and keeping them away from each other, improvements in detail, resolution and spatiality can be obtained, for a more satisfying listening experience.”

The Audience JEWEL CableLifter is currently available at a suggested retail price of $60 each.

Audiotechnique Review of frontRow powerChord July 2020


“the frontRow powerChord retains the signature sound of Audience cables, which has a super neutral tonal balance and yet reproduces a wide and deep sound stage. The bass performance is equally outstanding with deep bass response but never exaggerated.”
