Studio ONE powerChord
At the best recording studios in the world, Studio ONE is the biggest and best sounding room in the building. Studio ONE is where musicians go to create magic, to dig deep and bring forth their dreams. For those who dream of getting closer to their music, we proudly offer you Studio ONE. Built with high quality materials and premium geometry, Studio ONE digs deeper into every recording, allowing you to hear more of what the artist intended.
Studio ONE delivers near holographic focus, with imaging that is deep, wide and well-defined. Rhythm and pacing are superb, with noticeably superior transient capabilities. What truly sets Studio ONE apart from its lesser siblings is its tonal purity and dynamics; Studio ONE has a realism and clarity that’s much more in-line with our higher-end models. Much of this has to do with the way Studio ONE is built.
Studio ONE receives our Extreme High Voltage Process (EHVP), a proprietary process which drives very high voltages, in the range of 800,000v, through the cables doing a more thorough and complete job of burn-in than would otherwise be achievable. The largest benefits of the EHVP process are improved dynamics, coherence, tonal purity, and smoothness.
Like all Audience cables, Studio ONE is a low-mass design. We avoid using heavy jacketing materials and heavy connectors on our cables as mass tends to absorb energy and dulls the sound. This lack of extra weight gives Studio ONE their refreshingly open and honest tonal character.
All Audience cables are directional, we pay specific attention to the direction of our conductors and geometry to enhance conductivity and preserve maximum musical information. To ensure optimum performance, look for the gold arrow on all our cables which indicates direction of signal travel.
No other component engenders more controversy than aftermarket power cords. Traditionalists will often wonder what difference a power cord can make when the electricity has traveled through miles of electric lines to get to your wall outlet. The real question to be asked is, “what kind of damage does your audio component sustain by using a standard small gauge power cord?” The answer to that question is, “plenty”.
By their very design, stock power cords impede transients, radiate electromagnetic noise and resist the smooth flow of electricity between the component and the electrical source. More often than not, they are “reactive” meaning that their design introduces capacitance, inductance and resistance into the electron flow which will compromise the interface between the component and the power source. In addition, they often act as antennas in their ability to attract radio frequencies. As one can see, the innocuous looking power cord can introduce major distortion in an audio system.
Audience Studio ONE, SE-i, Au24 SE-i and Au24 SX powerChord products effectively deal with all of the sources of distortion which are endemic to a stock power cord. Instead of obstructing the smooth flow of electricity to your components, Audience power cords offer a highly conductive and effective way to provide your component with clean, undistorted, and noise free power.
Another way to look at the power cord is to reverse the traditional view. Rather than the last few feet in a long line of power delivery, the power cord is the first few feet of your component’s primary transformer winding. Viewed this way, the power cord assumes an all-important and essential part in preserving the performance or your system. Audience power cords eliminate the damaging choke point that is represented by the stock power cord.
Not all electronic phenomena are understood by conventional science or revealed through existing test procedures. The superior sonic enhancement of a good high performance audio/video power cord is no exception. While aftermarket power cords are a most controversial subject, the improvements they offer are also the most easily demonstrated. In many systems going from a stock power cord to a high quality cord designed for audio/video playback can be nothing short of transformational.
