I thought I’d give our friend, cable designer, Matthew Barker, some internet love. Matt’s been a good friend and supporter of Audiophilia for many years. I’ve used his inexpensive cables, both speaker and interconnect and can attest to their qualities — open, clear sound, with a natural, relaxed quality that allow micro and macro dynamics, both. They are worth far more than their very reasonable prices.
From Microphonic Audio: ‘The new Microphonic Audio Superior loudspeaker cable uses oxygen free copper wire, with high quality polypropylene insulation, similar to the type used on some of the most expensive and exotic loudspeaker cables in the world.
The cable design is based on the theory that high frequencies travel along the outside of wires and low frequencies travel through the middle of wires. With this in mind, we have tried to create a cable with the perfect balance of surface area and metal content to carry high frequencies and low frequencies equally well
The result is an open and transparent sound with a great bass and sparkling treble clarity.’
