in-akustik: Not a Voodoo Child

Karma-AV says in-akustik its new audiophile cable line harnesses the best application of physics to achieve its singular objective.

Karma-AV is delighted to be introducing in-akustik cables to the UK. Guided by a belief that only ‘physics not voodoo’ can deliver the brand’s single-minded ambition to minimise signal loss within the cable, in-akustik’s high-performance product range has been designed and hand-built in Germany since 1977.

By optimising proven electromagnetic relationships with the best materials and meticulous engineering, the company says its line-up has evolved across four quality levels, from ‘Star’ through ‘Premium’ and ‘Excellence’ to its flagship ‘Reference’ class cables.

The proposition for system builders is simply that while all cables will connect A to B, their susceptibility to interference, inadequate material properties and small cross-sections mean that signals will suffer losses during transmission.

The brand’s singular focus on minimising signal loss involves the use of pure silver (in the flagship Reference Air Series) and the purest OFC for highest conductivity; the application of multi-layer shielding to counteract electromagnetic interference and the adoption of high-quality polyethelene (PE) insulation preventing corrosion and damage while reducing energy storage (capacitance) by a factor of two over PVC.

In addition, the design of larger cross-sections reduces conductor resistance across the range and accommodates the brand’s innovative and flexible ‘air-helix’ structure, available on its ‘Reference’ cables, which separates the conductors in the air within the cable for the lowest dialectric losses.                                                 

Karma’s in-akustik profile includes the brand’s esoteric Reference Air speaker cables and interconnects, its Excellence digital, XLR and speaker cables, Premium optical and phono leads and a range of specialised subwoofer cables. Search for in-akustik at
