The Audience Au24e Low Z MC Phono Cable is designed for low output Moving Coil Cartridges with LESS than 30 ohms internal resistance. The Au24e Low Z MC Phono Cable offers vinyl lovers an optimized signal path to the phono stage without compromising the delivate phono level signal.
"Theres a level of cleanliness now available that wasnt present before, and its easy enough to go back to the control table and hear enough of a difference to justify the expense. Remember, a great analog front end is a work in progress and always a cumulative proposition. Ive found precious few things that are truly transformative, but every step in the right direction adds resolution without sacrificing in other areas. The Audience Au24e tonearm cable belongs in the latter category... While this cable is not inexpensive, at $1,100, its not crazy money, either. Im keeping it as a reference... its that spectacular!" - Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio, No. 46, May 2012
Audience believes that their Au24 Cables attain the elusive goal of combining Exquisite Sonic Detail with the Beauty of True Musicality. This is due in large part to the Au24s Incredible Time Domain Performance. One look will tell you these are not "me too" products. The materials, design and construction techniques utilized in the Au24 Cable line reflect the latest thinking in State-of-the-Art, High-Resolution Technology.
Given the extremely fragile nature of the phono signal, every effort must be pursued in order to preserve the integrity of that signal throughout the signal path. One area where the signal can suffer significant damage and loss is in the Phono Cable. Cartridge output levels are quite low, typically in the 3-5 millivolt range and often as low as 100 mircovolts. Audience's use of continuous cast High-Purity Copper as well as Low Loss Cable Geometry preserves the purity of this low level signal. Consumers often choose a Phono Cable based upon brand recognition alone. However, such a choice can inadvertently compromise a phono playback system due to mismatched impedance characteristics between Cartridge and Cable.
Audience has conducted considerable research into the electrical characteristics of Phono Cables and has concluded that a single Cable cannot possibly serve as an optimal Tonearm Phono Stage interface. The different internal electrical characteristics of Phono Cartridges make choosing a Cable designed to preserve and enhance those characteristics an all important issue. By choosing the wrong Cable you can lose precious low level detail information that is essential to overall sonic presentation.
For these reasons, Audience offers Vinyl Lovers a choice of three impedance-matched Phono Cables. Each model is designed to carefully optimize the electrical characteristics of the Cartridge to the Cable and to preserve signal flow to the Phono Stage without detrimental influences as follows:
Au24e Low Z MC Phono Cable - for Moving Coil Cartridges with internal resistance up to 30 ohms.
Au24e High Z MC Phono Cable - for Moving Coil Cartridges with internal resistance between 30 and 100 ohms.
Au24e MC/MI/MM Phono Cable - for all cartridges with internal resistance above 100 ohms which includes Moving Coil Cartridges rated at 47k ohms and most Moving Magnet or Moving Iron models.
Additionally, the thousands of crystalline barriers present in all conventional Copper Wire requires energy to pass from one barrier to the next. This energy, which is part of the signal becomes lost in this process. When dealing with ultra low level signals, particularly in Phono Cables, these harmful crystal barriers are significant impediments to the transmittion of critical musical information. For this reason all Audience Phono Cables are constructed using the Highest Purity Oxygen Free Continuous Cast Copper!
