For 2012 - All New High Definition Speaker Interfaces
Advanced laboratory test and measurement equipment enabled Music Interface Technologies to include Fractional Articulation Technology in the designs of its reference level products. MIT first unveiled this technology in 2010 as "Fractional Articulation Technology" (F.A.T.) in its Oracle MA-X HD Rev. 2 Speaker Interfaces. Thanks to improved manufacturing techniques, patient MIT is proud to offer this technology in an entirely new product line, including Super High Definition Speaker Interfaces.
What is Fractional Articulation Technology?
Prior to 2006, the thrust of MIT Cables’ engineering focused on optimizing a cable’s ability to transport an audio signal octave-to-octave. In 2006, MIT introduced Maximum Articulation technology which built upon previous Oracle designs to include the optimization of harmonics outside the octave. In 2010, this technology was expanded to allow the user to fine tune system articulation, helping to further optimize the articulation of harmonics that reside outside the octave, preserving pitch and ensuring the consonance or integrity of the musical experience.Fractional Articulation Technology was born of a test and measurement technique called Fractional Octave Analysis, going another step in optimizing and maintaining the harmonic structure of the audio signal. Instead of concentrating only on harmonics outside the octave, interval optimization within the octave is achieved, improving the natural textures and density of the music. Simply put, by combining both Maximum Articulation and Fractional Articulation technologies, more of the audio signal is properly transported through the interface. Further, the user has more control of his or her entire listening experience as F.A.T. is activated or deactivated by the use of a simple switch.
Fractional Articulation Technology can be found in the following High Definition and Super High Definition products:
Oracle MA-X SHD Speaker Interfaces
The Oracle MA-X Super High Definition Speaker Interface includes the ability to choose to enable F.A.T. in either high definition or super high definition with a simple switch selection.
"The MIT MA-X SHD loudspeakr cable and MA-X-C interconnects are simply without peer"
"...over the top. The sense of seeing through the soundstage to instruments at the back of the hall, and hearing them as separate objects rather than just part of the overall sonic tapestry, is alone worth the price of admission."

Oracle Matrix SHD 120 Speaker Interfaces
The Oracle Matrix Super High Definition 120 Speaker Interface allows the user to choose to enable F.A.T. in either high definition or super high definition with a simple switch selection, adding 25 extra Articulation Poles.
Oracle Matrix HD 90 Rev. 1 Speaker Interfaces
The Oracle Matrix High Definition 90 Rev. 1 Speaker Interface, like its big brother, also allows the user to choose to enable F.A.T. in either standard definition or super high definition with a simple switch selection, adding 25 extra Articulation Poles.
Matrix HD 60 Speaker Interfaces
With 60 poles of articulation, the Matrix High Definition 60 Speaker Interface boasts a 39% increase in performance over its predecessor, the Magnum MA, and comes in at a price that is 25% less! Combining the best features of the Magnum MA with its big brother, the Matrix Super HD 90, the Matrix 60 delivers the broadest range of features and performance for the least amount of money.
Rather than the user selectable feature of the Oracle Matrix Super HD 90, F.A.T. has been fixed into the interface’s network boxes. Though this interface does not have the traditional CVT® Coupler at the input, the coupler circuitry has been included in a larger enclosure at the input combined with F.A.T. technology.
Matrix HD 38 Speaker Interfaces
The Matrix High Definition 38 Speaker Interface comes to play with 38 poles of articulation, drastically outperforming everything else in its so called class. Improving over its predecessor, the AVt® MA, you’ll hear:
