All AAI audio cables are based on a unified approach to sound, which presents the natural sound of acoustic instruments or the human voices as faithfully as possible. As musicians, we are primarily interested in what distinguishes "artistic" sound from other sounds, and that is primarily its "musical" character. Each instrument is unique not only in its frequency, but also in its coloration. Thanks to its unique composition, the violin from Stradivari sounds different from the violin made by the average violin made of not perfectly dried or structured wood, which can be clearly heard in the outcome. AAI cables – as a tuning agent – are manufactured with the aim to give the color of acoustic instruments as faithfully as possible.
It doesn't matter if you listen to a chamber jazz quintet represented by drums, brass and wooden instruments, or a large Mahlerian orchestra with eighty great performers, AAI brings a balanced spatial presentation. During reproduction the classic stereo recedes and you stop perceiving playing speakers. Instead, a holographically accurate and continuous spatial scenery opens up in front of you – a particular stage or a jazz club, in which you clearly distinguish not only the space, but also the placement of dozens of instruments that do not change positions; there are no frequent spatial confusions, which are characteristic of many recordings. With AAI cables, you get into the perfect Euclidean audio space, which in stereo reinterprets the original 3D placement of musicians.
The high-end world, even though this label sounds nobly, is waging a relentless trench warfare between analytical and musical expression, between analogue and digital recording, with front lines not being unambiguous and customers are often unaware of the arguments swirl in which they are carried away by this or that side. As if the high-end was permanently divided by a compromise “quid pro quo”. However, AAI dispels these myths when it can not only bring an authentic musical experience, but performs it without any loss of accuracy or detail. Details are not lost from the audio recording, but thanks to the cables from AAI, the entire recording can capture even the finest sound nuances. The listener does not lose any musically interesting and important information. Quite the opposite; and regardless of the analogue or digital way of reading music information.
A common mistake of audio components is a kind of reproduction hyperbola, when too much emphasis is placed, say, on the authoritative bass, which, with its authoritarianism, attracts undeservedly a lot of attention. Not only can it be egocentrically noisy, but it likes to suppress mid- and higher-pitched sound frequencies. The result is a non-transparent stage, which does not lack dynamics and solid bass, but the other frequency base ceases to be sufficiently and evenly informative, and yet the substantial lyrics, epics and drama take place in the widest, middle band. Here, too, the AAI confirms the irreproducibility and, in particular, the wonderful feeling for the crystal-clear depiction of all frequencies, when the timpani sound like real timpani and the triangle does not flaunt more than the human ear catches in the concert hall. In addition, with AAI cables, it never happens to the listener that the sound acquires a hazy, rasterized, blurred character in the manner of a "blanket" effect.
