Loudspeaker connector

Low Mass and Maximum Contact is a necessity in the development of our cables as is a new design. We are allergic to connectors with high mass because of eddy currents. Our connectors, for example the Flow Copper G and the RCA and XLR plugs, have a minimal conducting mass and a maximum contact surface.

Flow Cables


The music flows uniform, the stage has more depth with more space between the instruments. The bass and the mid-bass are more natural and defined and have slam and attack. The total resolution and information is on a higher level and this without any grain, rough edges or harshness.
We develop superb audio cables by undertaking a unique approach!

A unique Philosophy

The slender silhouette of the Driade loudspeakers belies its sturdiness and structural integrity. Internal bracing and lock-jointed and bonded 20mm both sides veneered MDF panelling make for monolithic strength and rigidity.
The utmost in technically advanced transducers, innovative cross-over circuitry for tight seamless frequency, impulse and phase control, provide for unequalled music reproduction and the ultimate in listening pleasure.

A premium performance indeed!

The shape of sound to come

The art of music reproduction, -transmission and -transcription has changed radically in an astonishing short period of time. Radically, and irreversible. In the past decennium, streaming, Bluetooth and stand-alone wireless have become household names. However, traditional means of music reproduction, such as the record player, have not altogether been dismissed. On the contrary: analogue music reproduction has gained new interest.
