Basis Audio is proud and excited to introduce their state of the art Basis Cable System.  The first audio cables to use the true science of wide-band constant phase signal transmission theory, Basis signal cables achieve levels of naturalness, imaging, musicality, detail, dynamics, and bass response never before heard in any cables at any price.  Featured in the Basis Cable System are their “Perfect Signal Transmission Technology” Interconnect and Speaker Cables and “Hy-Per Shield Technology” Power Cable. 
 
 
THE BEGINNING 
 
Cable research began at Basis in 1998 when designer A.J. Conti began investigating signal cable theory related to the design of the Vector tonearm.  In 2003 Basis launched the Vector Model 3, incorporating the first Basis cable.  Owners who upgraded their original Vectors to the Model 3 using Basis wiring were the first to hear the incredible gains in transparency, bass delivery, and imaging that would be the hallmarks of the sound of the future Basis Cable System.  Many of these Vector owners requested Basis Vector cable for use as interconnects in their systems.  Knowing that the requirements of interconnect cables are different than those of low-level phono cables, Basis refused all except one of the requests.  In this system the Vector cable, though not optimized for higher level signals, displaced $5,000 interconnects as the best sounding cable. 
 
 
PURE PHYSICS AND PROVEN ELECTROMAGNETIC THEORY  
 
Basis started with the fundamentals of physics and electromagnetic theory in their research toward designing the most truthful audio cables available.  Those familiar with Basis will notice that this approach, using a “clean slate” with no predetermined design biases, has been the Basis approach with all products from the original Debut through the revolutionary Vector tonearm and the amazing Work of Art turntable.  No “audio industry dogma”, theory, or standard practice regarding materials or configuration was allowed to intrude upon 
their research and the development of the Basis Cable System. 
 
 
SIGNAL CABLES 
 
The Basis “Perfect Signal Transmission Technology” Interconnect and Speaker Cables are the ultimate links for your components, offering you the lowest distortion and most phase correct signal transfer independent of frequency range and type of equipment used.  No matter what cable you have been using, the Basis cables will redefine your system’s coherence, smoothness, detail, and bass response to levels you would have 
never imagined possible.        
 
Designed to achieve the ultimate standard in the signal transmission field, known in physics and electromagnetic theory as the “Distortionless Transmission Line”, Basis signal cables eliminate time distortion which is present in other cables.  The elimination of this phase error results in perfect timing of all frequencies: the high frequency content of a kick-drum arrives at the same time as the fundamental low frequency.   Some cables emphasize the initial kick (and are known as cables with good “attack”).  Some cables emphasize decay.  Basis “Perfect Signal Transmission” cables convincingly convey the attack, overall tonal quality, and decay: the entire event of a simple kick-drum strike does indeed become a startling event.      
Such purity of phase results in greater focus, wider and deeper soundstage, more impactful, articulate, and palpable bass, greater resolution of low-level detail, and more natural, effortless presentation of musical content.  Instruments and voices are portrayed with vivid reality.  Gone is instrument or vocal “wander” across the soundstage as the pitch changes up and down.  Vocals, for the first time, are perfectly integrated with natural sibilance and voice coming from exactly the same position in the soundfield.  Due to correct arrival times and extremely low distortion in both frequency response and time domains, sounds familiar to the human ear, such as voices, will startle your ear and memory as being truthful in ways that you have never heard before from any audio system.
