Crystal Cables have launched The Art Series of cables that claim to offer “much better realism, more sophistication, and refinement than any other cables do: When a great musician shapes a note, a phrase, or a movement, it’s all about time and place, amplitude, and attack. CrystalConnect high-quality materials and construction preserve not just pitch and harmonics, but the purpose and intent in the playing, the human element that engages and communicates with the soul.”
The new flagship series offers three levels of performance – Monet, van Gogh, and da Vinci – each named after an artist who fathered a revolution and set new artistic expression standards. It consists of a full range of interconnects, speaker cables, power cords, and digital cables. The entire Art Series uses solid, Infinite Crystal Silver conductors and the same advanced construction and insulation materials found elsewhere in the Crystal range.
