Audience Ohno cables are designed to achieve the very highest level of performance at an entry level price. Ohno cables are named after Dr. Atsumi Ohno who invented the method of manufacturing mono-crystal wire, a highly sophisticated process of producing wire without the crystalline barriers found in all conventional wire. Whereas copper typically exhibits thousands of crystals per meter, as audio signals move through this maze, energy is lost at every crystalline juncture. Ohno copper is a single crystal providing an unobstructed path for transmission of the purest audio signal. Ohno cables are made with XLPE (cross linked polyethylene), one of the very best insulations for high end audio cables. The price/performance provided by Ohno cables is second to no other in the world.
"Sonically the Audience Ohno achieved a level of balance and midrange tonal weight and density that seemed almost contradictory to its skinny contours. It was quiet, quick, and extended with well-focused and pleasingly dimensional imaging. Characterized by a slightly warmer, rounder balance, vocals were full-bodied adn expressive, and midrange dynamics spirited. Importantly, Ohno's sibilance range was nicely kept in check. Transient behavior was clean and naturalistic." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2016
"Audience Ohno wires are ideal partners for smaller systems, especially so for those of the desktop persuasion. Easy to position, and so light that they won't tug a loudspeaker off its stands, Ohno offered an unerring sense of musicality at a blu-collar price that might have one of your snoby audio buddies gagging on his Perrier. Maybe the best performance per dollar cable that I've heard in some time." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2016
"Audience's new value line of Ohno interconnects and speaker cables runs counter to the perceived wisdom that high-performance wires always require thick, heavy, unyielding jacketing and confoundingly complex conductor geometries. Employing the same 6-nines, 21 AWG, OCC-stranded copper that it uses in its tony Au24 SE powerChords, these whip-thin featherweights are nicely built and very pliable, making them ideal partners for smaller systems. Sonically they are quick and extended with well-focused and dimensioinal imaging. Most significantly, they have no additive colorations and don't crimp dynamics. They're not the last words in resolution, but given their entry-level mission they're right on the money in every other respect. Easy to postition and so light they won't tug a compact loudspeaker off its stands, the Ohnos offer an unerring sense of musicality at a price that won't bust the budget." - The Absolute Sound 2015 Product Of The Year, Accessories Of The Year Award Winner!
