Do High Fidelity Cables make an audible measurable difference?



Fact: All audio cables make a difference in stereo's and are measurably different regardless of design and cost.

This is an age-old argument in Audio that cables do not make a difference and it is sometimes backed with technical challenges explained in what seems like intelligent technical details or supposed science explaining just why.

Here is the problem with that approach: science is the explanation of an observation... Here's what we know can easily be observed about cables: they have measurable differences that should easily be assumed even could be audible even if you didn't attempt to listen; these have been established for 200 years and are the basic measurements they include resistance, impedance, and even capacitance. To be honest there's probably a lot established by now but these are so simple and so clear that why would we go further? They prove that everyone is well aware all cables have measurable differences.

So what's actually being argued is whether or not people should be able to hear differences in audio systems by making change and potentially that if it was possible to hear any change by making a change of componentry or cabling or anything else in your audio system how sizable would it have to be for the human ear to perceive it. This is actually an argument that's more closely related to faith let me explain. No one is arguing that cables make a difference. We all know that what's being argued from a scientific approach is science itself and the lack of understanding for what science is.

So let's define science: Science as a body of study is best explained as: The explanation for an observation. We've observed that there are many stars in this sky, the first conclusions to this we're visual-only those people can simply see them science then starts to begin to explain why we can see those little dots up there that's the purpose of science.

So arguing scientifically that cables don't make a difference is nonsense, and the fact that this argument exists is extremely perplexing to most of the body of science. We're not alone in Audio having these kinds of arguments but we also not truly a part of the scientific community so it's our lack of understanding that is really the problem.

We have reported repeatable observations that people have heard differences. We have obvious measurable changes that explain why already and anyone interested in science in the argument is responsible only for the study of why we can hear them. To argue that there is an observation at all and that observation of any type cannot take place has never been accepted in the scientific community and has no place in science. So what a real scientist would actually do if one were to take up this topic is to study and spend however much energy time money and resources they could get to give us a better understanding of why and what we're observing. Scientists always start with observation and they will continue to use observation as their main tool to research.

To use science intelligently and properly in this conversation there is only one strategy: it should start with observation until an observation is fully complete. A dedicated approach to trying to simulate this observation must be made in science there are sometimes failed attempts but scientists don't give up; this is the hard part. That observation is key. You have to have it, you've got to find it because you can't apply any science until you have the observation. Science can never be used to explain why someone else's observation couldn't have been valid; that's simply arguing belief.

So this argument is actually not about sites as we've discussed yet it's still an argument that will carry-on because there are still people who are not wanting to invest in this idea and being challenged to do so by other people that are saying cables make a difference because they have found observation... This can challenge people that are partly scientific-minded. They believe that it's a goal for science to be applied but unfortunately use the wrong approach and they take the energy instead of applying science and trying to have the observation until they actually had success, they start arguing that observation cannot be had. This becomes extremely futile and there are people who will argue there are no stars in the sky as well, you have to decide how much time you want to invest arguing this kind of debate and understand that it's not a scientific debate. There's no foundation for the argument that we can see and no reason for this conversation to be still being had. We would not enter into such an argument understanding that anybody arguing it is saying I won't try to hear the difference and here are my reasons for why I'm not going to put effort into this or apply science. It's usually because it takes too much time, it takes a bit of talent, takes a bit of money and it takes learning. Anyone of these reasons is valid for why somebody may not want to study to pick up on something but certainly isn't the foundation for an Argumentative case about whether cables make a difference of course I do. Cables made a difference before you and I ever came along and they will be making them long after I assume... When this conversation is brought up to us we do not enter into it realizing how little it is we wholeheartedly pray for whoever is trying to have this conversation that they've got a great counselor and are willing to use them about the topic because that's the only help they're going to get.

Expansion on why?

We believe that it's extremely easy to observe this technology through these basic devices and have complete reassurance that any purchase will yield incredible results.

There are other benefits we offer like the ability to trade it to a different product if it does not work out as expected. We have never had to use this as they always do and if not at first with something very rare we help troubleshoot and make sure it does. We have not missed so far in our 9 years in this approach but with one customer.

That customers wanted a tone control and tone cannot be controlled without a distortion based product, that is done in the original recording only. You can not change it; you can only make it more transparent and accurate by removing distortion.

Not offering a refund also lowers retail margins by 20-25% as well. They are never free as retail cannot work like that any loss has to be paid for by someone buying a product. The risk is simply spread across the client base though pricing and disrupts the value proposition. I did not feel that was fair considering our products performance level as it is extremely high for audio and the highest in audio cabling.

I will always look at a case by case and have made some exceptions.

Which one should I pick?



Well, the reason we offer so many different cables is that there are many customers with different goals as well as budgets. My main objective was to introduce people to the technology. Our entry-level products are designed for introduction to our technology and offer a nice taste of the clarity, musicality, and precision that only our brand delivers. High Fidelity Cables are uniquely different from all other cables. They simply remove distortions that are caused by the way energy moves through traditional high-end cable and wire. Magnetic Conduction is fundamentally different and it offers a truly unique sound that audiophiles crave.

Due to the fact that our technology itself is uniquely different the sound is also different. Magnetic Technology Cables are cleaner, quieter, smoother, and more musical. It is not a subtle difference. Additional benefits that our Reveal line offer would be greater dynamics, soundstage separation, better imaging, and more accurate tonal control, cleaner bass, and a more extended top end. Literally, every aspect of music reproduction is improved.

Our entry-level Reveal product line is more than capable of giving large sonic benefits even over extremely expensive competitor cables. It is not necessary to go to a higher-priced cable in our line to achieve a truly breathtaking result. We offer an extremely high value not represented in conventional cables.

It Is important to note that when purchasing audio cables from us, each model line of cables simply removes more and more distortion. Fundamentally, all of our cable offerings are capable of simply removing distortion to reveal better sound as you move up the model lines. Distortion is always problematic and our cables specifically target this issue in the most effective way possible, “Magnets”!

When you do move up the line there are significant sonic improvements. Although these may not be needed just to get better sound than traditional audio cables, it is intriguing to most to see how much distortion can be removed and how much better the sound quality can be through the implementation of Magnetic Conduction.

Because this technology is the first and only alternative to audio cables in 200 years, we like to show just exactly what this technology can do. You may think of our upper product lines as us simply showing off just how incredible this technology is. We cover the range of the most value-driven affordable cables in audio to the most expensive and exotic cables in the industry. Who better to offer it all then the industry’s highest technology company?

When moving to any of our upper-end products, it can be as amazing as being introduced to our product for the first time. When you step up with High Fidelity Cables you get a real bang for your buck. Imagine being able to lower more distortion making the system play even more realistic. From the step-up of CT-2 to the true cost no object Professional Elite, we offer performance that can only be had with High Fidelity Cables!

It is likely a good idea to cable a system holistically over buying one or two more expensive premium products as getting the technology throughout really offers an advantage.

That said, the absolute thrill ride of the upper-end products cannot be overlooked. What does your audio budget allow?

Why do you not offer bi-wire speaker cables?



What are the main reasons we do not offer bi-wire speaker cables is because we use single solid core conductors and it would actually take two sets of cables attached together at one end in order for them to be bi-wired. This adds a lot to expense, basically doubling the cost of the cables. Anybody that would like to do this can purchase two sets of cables and apply it shotgun style. FOR SURE bi-wire shotgun-style is the optimal way to accomplish it.

Doesn’t Bi-wire sound better?

There are some advantages to bi-wire they do tend to sound a little more robust but not all bi-wires do. When Bi-wiring, if you’re actually increasing the gauge by using more than one cable, there’s benefit in lower resistance for sure but you can get more linear phase distortion.

Because we cater mostly to extremely high-end audio systems, we have not offered bi-wire because of potential time delays between the two sets of cables or conductors.

No parts in the length of cable could be “exactly” the same. Although they may vary slightly, time delay differences can still occur.

This can also be referred to as non-linear distortion. A single solid run of cable will not introduce nearly as much of this non-linear distortion. For ultra-resolving systems, there is more air and fine detail in a “non-bi wired” system.

Because our technology is extremely efficient at moving audio signals without the amount of time in phase distortion found in traditional cables. We feel it’s optimal to limit conductors to one or a single set.

Would you simply not recommend bi-wiring at all?

Well, I do think that the money could be put to better use. The amount of potential gain someone may get by bi-wiring is not likely to give the same kind of sonic upgrade as using a much cleaner low distortion power cord on transport for example. Therefore, I would recommend that a user consider spending the money on a different upgrade that would yield greater results. Ask us for help with this choice.

That said, I have no problem with bi-wiring as well. It really is up to the individuals’ personal taste just because I typically do not bi-wire. This does not mean you may not want to; it does offer some advantage and maybe you’ll find those outweigh the disadvantages. That has not been my discovery so far at least with this new technology of High Fidelity Cables.

Bi-amping, would you recommend Bi-amping?

Typically, not. This is a matter of time in phase distortion and having two amplifiers that are identical enough is difficult to find. It is also going to require extra components including crossover parts. When you’re bi-amping, you really should have a crossover that is in line before the amplifiers. This will help to eliminate oscillation within the amplifier of unused frequencies. Although many amplifiers will remain stable with oscillation, some amplifiers will not and it’s typically not a good idea regardless.

With a single amplifier, it is easier to have very coherent time and phase and this is one of the key factors for Xtreme musicality as well as ultra-low-level detail three-dimensionality and sense of space. It is not going to be possible to get the same level of accuracy when bi-amping in these areas as it would be with a single amplifier or set of monoblocks.

Again, if you enjoy bi-amping I don’t have a big problem with it. There is a certain point where a system, “to improve greatly” and if it is already ultra-high. We typically recommend moving backward from bi-amping into a single amplifier for each channel of extremely high-quality.

An amplifier with extremely good current delivery will typically outperform most bi-amp applications with general ease.

Want to bi-amp- up regardless and know what are the best amps to use? In this case, both amplifiers should be as high-quality as possible because you’re going to have two sets to purchase. They should be identical for top and bottom drivers this is very important “don’t mix match amps”. Buying two sets of amps is going to typically cause a person to have to buy a much lower quality amplifier. You will get lower quality sound because of this; a better amp makes a better sound period. If you’re going to do it, purchase two sets of the best amplifiers you possibly can. Even if it’s extremely expensive and it will be, you will not get the benefit otherwise.
