Effect Audio Launch Signature Series Cables

One of the hottest brands for premium cables, Effect Audio, is looking to bring in the summer with a new line of products. What they are calling the “Signature Series” is brand new updated versions of their previous named cables, such as the Ares, Cadmus, and Eros. These three entry-level cables have received the signature treatment, with new sounds and designs that aim to go beyond the boundaries of their respective prices.

For this particular line of cables, Effect Audio has developed a custom Y-Split and termination. Made special for the Signature Series, the intricacy of multi-sides polished/brushed aluminum mix to the raw beauty of the Forged Carbon Fibre, which also adds to their more stylish nature.

Ares S

According to Effect Audio, vocals are going to be the main highlights of the AERS S. Energetic and smooth with a hypnotic pull to them. Instruments are also said to be more lifelike with the ARES S, with natural guitar tones and strong, impactful drums. With an improved frequency response compared to the ARES II, ARES S presents itself as a lush and emotive cable that is cleaner and more detailed. The Ares S will be priced at $179.

Cadmus

With all great greek heroes, Cadmus presents itself as an accomplished all-rounder. Here, Effect Audio hopes to go for an overall smoother and crispier tone, fine-tuning the roughness of the original sound. The low end is said to be bold but controlled while the mids have an airy quality to them. Vocal heavy tracks get a mention here due to the smoother laid back and airy vocals that are not harsh to listen to. Treble’s response is improved without affecting the tonality. It will be priced at $199.

This cable will be priced at $299.
