San Marcos, CA, May 4, 2021 – Audience today announced the introduction of its Studio ONE and Studio TWO Series interconnects and speaker cables, designed to offer exceptional high-end sound quality. The Studio ONE and Studio Two are available as RCA and XLR (balanced) interconnects, and speaker cable. In addition, the Studio ONE lineup includes phono and headphone cables and a new powerChord.
The Studio ONE Series replaces the previous Au24SE cable line and offers upgraded performance at no increase in price, through the use of high-purity OFC (oxygen-free copper) wire and an improved XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) dielectric material. In addition, Studio ONE cables receive Audience’s proprietary EHVP Extreme High-Voltage Process, which applies high voltages in specific combinations in order to align the crystalline structure of the various metals used in the cables and facilitate more efficient signal transfer – and better sound.
Audience’s Studio TWO cables are the successor to the previously-available Conductor SE lineup. They utilize the same core wire as the Studio ONE without the EHVP treatment, and feature different connectors. Like the Studio ONE, these cables deliver significantly better performance than the models they replace, with improved dynamics, coherence and realism and without an increase in price.
John McDonald, president of Audience noted, “Thanks to advances in our manufacturing processes and ability to obtain better materials, our new Studio ONE and Studio TWO products offer even better value to discerning audiophiles. They deliver the exceptional quality of sound that Audience has become acclaimed for, offering a rich, detailed and natural presentation with wide dynamics, spaciousness and an accurate tonal balance. They deliver superb transient response and a wealth of musical information without ever sounding ‘hard’ or ‘etched,’ and are ideal for a wide range of high-end audio components and systems.”
Like all Audience products, Studio ONE and Studio TWO interconnects, speaker cables and power cords are made in the USA from premium materials, to the highest standards of manufacturing quality. Audience Studio ONE cables are available now at suggested retail prices starting at $1,199 for a meter pair of RCA interconnects. Studio TWO cables are also available now with suggested retail prices starting at $699 for a meter pair of RCA interconnects. Please consult an authorized Audience dealer for pricing on additional lengths and configurations.

I wanted to compliment you on the your Hidden Treasure (HT) V2 wall outlet I purchased from you in December. I recently got around to installing it and the effect was extremely noticeable, maybe close the impact your power conditioner had when I introduced it into my system. I was amazed at just how dramatically better the sound of my system became with the new wall outlet (and it was already good in my view). Everything expanded; and what sounded good before was flat by comparison. The HT unpacked and expanded things and allowed me to hear sounds I never heard before; and more clearly. The sound of my system became instantly more impactful and three dimensional. I can’t say enough good things about the HT – every aspect of my system sounds much better.
It’s a great product and the best $200 I ever spent on my system.

“Clarity and improved imaging were there in spades throughout, but it was the fact that the full frequency spectrum was presented in ways previously unheard that was riveting. Equally, the Audience combo impressively lifted the lid on dynamic prowess and presence. Resulting instrumental personalities – both individual and collective – seemed to be placed perfectly within the listening room.”

“The frontRow suite achieves the implicit goal of every serious high-end review—fidelity to the source. It is uncanny how they make the footprint of electrical devices almost undetectable, bringing you closer to the source. To a very large extent the frontRow speaker cables and interconnects step aside. (The powerChords do it, too, but have more color and personality.) The frontRow suite completely satisfies the primary Golden Rule.”
