Unsurpassed control of articulation and imaging
MIT Cables' Oracle MA-X Speaker Cable, with Adjustable Articulation Response Module (A.A.R.M), gives you total control of articulation between your amplifier and loudspeaker. It is engineered to optimally transport the harmonic structure of a musical piece between the source and the load throughout the entire audio bandwidth.
What does it do?
In order to understand the new MA-X technology inside the Oracle MA-X Speaker cable, we need to understand music theory.
Before any performance, members of an ensemble fine tune their instruments in a specific key, eliminating dissonance. When completed, one notices that each instrument resonates perfectly in pitch with the other instruments in the group, creating consonance, or a pleasing listening experience. It is the goal of these musicians to find instruments which possess the ability to vibrate with sets of harmonic frequencies which are musically sounding pleasing, (i.e. mathematically related).
Harmonics are always separated by whole numbers; inharmonics and overtones are not, and are therefore not equally spaced from one another. Additionally, harmonics, inharmonics and overtones are all ascending in nature. Mathematically the harmonic series is an arithmetic series (2xf, 3xf, 4xf, etc.), while the octave series is a geometric progression (2xf, 4xf, 8xf, etc.), and where f is the fundamental frequency given in Hertz, e.g., 1 Hertz = 1 vibration per second.
Application of Harmonics
MA Technology, released in 2007, was the first cable that was engineered around the criteria of maintaining harmonic integrity when transporting music between the input and output of a system's components. The new Oracle MA-X speaker cable with A.A.R.M. now takes this another step further. The MA-X Bi-wire not only contains 109 poles of articulation, but also gives the audiophile a means of "fine tuning" articulation, thereby helping to maintain equidistance between the music's harmonics, preserving pitch, and insuring the consonance of the music.
articulation (ar·tic·u·la·tion )
Pronunciation: (") är-"ti-ky&-'lA-sh&n
1: the action or manner of jointing or interrelating.
In Speech, articulation deals with (articulatory phonetics), their acoustic properties (acoustic phonetics), and how they combine to make syllables, words, and sentences (linguistic phonetics).
In Music, articulation is a sign, direction, or performance technique which indicates or affects the transition or continuity between notes or sounds.
In the world of Recorded Music and Cinema playback, articulation is the singular objective to audiophiles and videophiles the world over. The Oracle MA-X AARM speaker cable is the world's first fully-adjustable articulation speaker interface. The Oracle MA-X Bi-wire is the industry standard, raising the bar to an unsurpassed 109 poles of articulation. With 109 poles of articulation, the timbre is full, natural and rich, and the textures remain thick and dense, ensuring that voices and instruments will not lose their natural tones. All voices and instruments are "painted" on a noise-free background and portrayed within a large three-dimensional soundstage, remaining rock solid over a greater dynamic range. Perfect for use with Oracle MAX-V audio interconnects.
FAQs about MIT Interfaces
What's in the box? For over 20 years Bruce Brisson has been researching precisely what the function of a cable is. Simply put, a cable's job is to deliver the signal with frequency, amplitude and phase intact with no distortions of these critical relationships. After years of experimentation and receiving patents on sophisticated cable geometries, he concluded that only after applying network technology would he be able to accomplish that goal.
Inside the box is a series of complex networks comprised of passive components aimed at improving the cable's linearity. The result is easily heard as better bass, improved imaging and focus and more open highs.
Is it a crossover? No. The networks are designed to store and release current and voltage in proper relationships, but do not function as a filter. The cable networks are wired in parallel and do not impair any signal flow; thus, your components are directly connected with high quality materials.
