Cables are a fundamental part of any high-end hi-fi system. The audio signal chain is only as strong as its weakest link and in many cases that ‘weak link’ is the cable. At Crystal Cable, we believe that a cable should be essentially transparent and neutral and that the signal should arrive completely intact so that the music is as complete and realistic as it is in a live listening situation.
To this end, we have designed a manufacturing process that takes into account the subtleties that come into play when manufacturing audio cables to ensure excellence in all aspects of the creation and fabrication of our cables. Whatever we do in our manufacturing process, it has consequences for the musical performance of the cables we produce. With this in mind, the pursuit of musical perfection through superior construction is at the heart of every cable we manufacture.
Given the importance of cables for audio systems, our cables are hand-made by our production engineers in the Netherlands. However advanced technologies may become, they cannot parallel the skills of an expert craftsman. Hand-crafting audio cables is very intricate work that is extremely labor-intensive. Over time, the delicate skill of hand-crafting products has become an endangered one. But not at Crystal Cable. At Crystal Cable, this skill has not only been preserved and nurtured, but also further developed and innovated over time in order to deliver consistent and unparalleled quality. Our standard of excellence is embodied in every one of our products.
Naturally, our manufacturing process is significantly based on the human skills of our teams of experts, which are equipped with the most advanced and innovative machinery and equipment to support them. Our production engineers working in our cutting-edge workshop are trained according to strict excellence criteria. They take into account every single detail to achieve the best result, from a musical performance perspective, but also from a durability, reliability and aesthetical perspective. All elements of our cables are hand-finished, involving a series of specialist techniques and crafts that aim to find the ultimate balance between musical performance with aesthetic beauty, making our cables true marvels of engineering.
It goes without saying that every single material we use for the production of our cables is sourced according to the highest standards. As part of our quality assurance and control process, the materials we use are thoroughly hand-tested before they enter our manufacturing process. Additionally, during this process, the materials are tested again by the production engineers before using them for the production of our cables. After a cable is finished, the production engineer performs various tests to ensure the quality of the cable. After this process is finished, an expert quality engineer performs these tests again before the cable leaves our workshop. By doing so, we ensure that our cables function perfectly and their aesthetic appearance is flawless.
We only offer reliable and durable cables. Every cable leaving our workshop is an ambassador for the quality we strive to deliver. The cables are manufactured to function as perfectly as possible today, tomorrow and in the future. As a result, there is no limit to how long our cables keep performing – they can be handed down from one generation to the next, while their performance even improves over time.
