MIT Cables at T.H.E. Show Newport 2012



Best Sound by John Atkinson - Stereophile

"...the band was hanging there in space between and behind the speakers. And when the audience started clapping along with the music, they sounded above and to the sides of the speakers, as I had intended. "

"...We listened to Lyle Lovett and Rickie Lee Jones in "North Dakota" — goosebumps all round in the line "And they cross the border to learn the ways of love"—then to a Malcolm Arnold Overture from Reference Recordings. It was all good. I could have sat there all day if it wasn't for the fact that the Show was about to close."



Join MIT Cables in Newport Beach for T.H.E. Show 2012 - The Home Entertainment and High End Audio Show at three different venues.

MIT Cables approaches cabling to properly interface components to operate as a single unit, or “System”. A System approach creates a single voice from many different contributors, similar to an orchestra or chorus made up of many voices. Similar to tuning an orchestra to a single perfect pitch, properly interfaced components can become more than the sum of its parts. We celebrate with our exhibit partners and all that contributed to creating the sonic experience at each of the several rooms.
