Stage III Concepts Cerberus
From AUD $70,000.00
Ultimate Statement Silver/Palladium Cables
When Stage III Concepts introduced the ground-breaking A.S.P. MEDUSA speaker cables, they did not expect such an immediate uptake by the market due to the cost of the cable. However, the Medusa was such a revelation, that it set a new benchmark for what people can expect from an ultimate performance cable. In time, some clients posed the question ‘Can it get any better than this?’
Stage III decided to answer that question by creating a design with no possible limitations, no compromises in any area and a design that takes speaker cable engineering to an unprecedented level.
The A.S.P. ULTIMATE REFERENCE CERBERUS is quite simply, the most advanced and highest performing speaker cable available. Period. It has been designed for audiophiles who are aspiring to that level of quality where even the miniscule details matter.
There are a myriad of features incorporated into the design that are simply not possible to achieve outside of the Stage III Cerberus & Medusa models. The most distinguishing and effective being their exclusive “floating” ribbon conductors, proprietary alloys plus the use of vacuum as primary dielectric. The combined dual-size palladium/silver conductors deliver all the weight and air of the audible frequency spectrum for an emotional, visceral experience. These attributes are unique to Stage III’s reference speaker cable designs, delivering unmatched signal purity among its many sonic virtues.
Great emphasis was placed into deflecting or absorbing the effects of any external interferences of any kind. Layers of H.D.A. (High Density Alloy) granules and solid foil, silver braids and their ASPIS™ woven outer shield add additional layers of EMI/RF protection for a noise floor that could never be achieved with any other cable design. A.S.P. CERBERUS’ multi-layer array of EMI/RF shielding and mechanical, anti-resonance damping stands alone in the industry.
Like all of their reference series designs for the last 25 years, CERBERUS speaker cables are assembled entirely by hand in the U.S. with absolutely no off-the-shelf or commercially available components. The combined elements make the cables extremely heavy, so equipment height and placement must be considered.
The pure transparency and astonishing realism makes CERBERUS a defining revelation in audio speaker interface technology. It represents a culmination of merged proprietary components, custom materials and forefront technologies; unequivocally placing the CERBERUS far ahead of competing audio products in every regard. Clients who have made the investment into Cerberus cables have expressed that they are ‘paradigm-shifting’ and have transformed very capable hi-fi systems into a pure musical experience. The absolute best available.
