Stage III Concepts A.S.P. Ckahron
From AUD $23,500.00
Ultimate Statement Silver/Palladium Interconnects
In 2022, Stage III Concepts celebrated its 25th anniversary milestone by introducing a trifecta of ultimate level products, the likes of which the world has never seen. This line of products is a cost-no-object assault on what is possible to achieve if there are no compromises or restrictions placed on a design. These three lines are the Cerberus speaker cables, the Poseidon power cords and finally, the Ckahron analog interconnects, easily contenders for the most advanced audio cables available anywhere as well as being unique, technological works of art.
The Ckahron interconnects incorporate Stage III Concepts newest and most advanced technologies and are fine-tuned for optimal transmission of line-level signals. Conductor optimisation is the key to their astounding performance. Designed from the ground up, every possible detail has been painstakingly addressed to extract everything their critically acclaimed conductors are capable of achieving. The attention to detail from an engineering perspective is unprecedented and frankly mind-boggling to consider with extreme emphasis placed on mechanical and electromagnetic damping. Even with multiple layers of proprietary dielectrics, inner and outer radiation shielding and industry leading damping, maintaining flexibility was a major priority, and considering their size and features, CKAHRON interconnects are surprisingly flexible and easy to install. Ckahron interconnects are terminated with the newly developed HYPERION advanced RCA or XLR silver alloy connectors. As with all our cables, all signal carrying elements are cryo-treated, and are assembled completely by hand using 100% proprietary elements with absolutely no commercial, mass-produced components.
All of this unprecedented technology and effort has yielded astonishing results. The sound has a vitality & energy, completely free of any distortions, or sonic artifacts. If you’ve ever had the good fortune to experience this level of cable quality, it can really destroy your existing paradigms. Introducing this into a system sounds like the source electronics, amplifiers and speakers have all been upgraded a few levels above! You then can actually witness the effect that cables have on a system and once you hear it, you cannot ‘unhear’ it!
Naturally, most audiophiles would consider allocating this sort of a budget to cables to be quite extreme, however in the right system, the Stage III Concept A.S.P. range of cables can be a transformative, transcendent experience. For those who harbour these types of ‘ultimate’ sonic objectives, the Ckahron, along with it’s siblings, is a no-brainer. Cables with no peers!
