Au24 SE Upgrades for Cables
Most existing Audience interconnects, loudspeaker cables, and digital cables can be upgraded to the latest Au24 SE version. Generally speaking, Au24 SE upgrades are the result of lower mass and improved metallurgy of our cable connectors. The outcome of the Au24 SE upgrade is markedly greater resolution. As Greg Weaver states in his 2013 Positive Feedback Writer’s Choice Award, the Au24 SE upgrade allows previous users of Au24 e cables to hear things that before were inaudible. The Au24 SE upgrade simply allows abundantly more low level information to pass through the cable connection.

- DIN > RCA phono cables - $370
- XLR - $500
- S/PDIF - $180
