Heavens Gate Audio
After five years of intense research & development Heavens Gate Audio introduced a new series of highquality audio cables in August 2010.
Christoph Kraemer, Chief Designer and President of Heavens Gate Audio said:
Heavens Gate Audio uses various conductor materials to manufacture their new products:
Pure 4N-Silver, Silver-Gold-Alloys and Silver-Copper-Alloys. These conductors are aligned in a special way to optimize impedance characteristics, capacitive and inductive behaviour as well as electrmomagnetic resonances. All conductor materials are cryogenic treated at a temperature of -196C° and for the higher lines ‘demagnetized’.
Up to six pure-silver shields are used in an unconventional way to reject any source of high-frequency noice by adopting a passive filter network. Additional silk-fiber damping and a proprietary granulate material that fills the spaces of the plugs used on the cables are additional feature.
All connectors are choosen for best performance in combination with the conductor material used - Cardas, Oyaide and Neutrik.
The A/C power cords are terminated with Oyaide P-079 & C-079. Other Oyaide plugs are available to fine-tune the sonic character of the audio component it is connected to.
All Heavens Gate Audio cables are handcrafted in Germany in small batches and feature an excellent build quality. Heavens Gate Audio offers a life-time AND transferrable warranty to the registered owner. In addition, a 30-Day-Money-Back-Guarantee for all products purchased through selected dealers and distributors is offered.
The current Series include six ranges including a pending one specialized on digital audio (USB, HDMI 1.4 and LAN).
Prices currently range from € 280 for a 1-meter digital link to € 3.980 for a 4-foot analog interconnect pair.
