Luminous Audio

Cable sonics explained! Why cables DO make an audible difference.

As a cable designer who possesses a mere AAE in Electricity/Electronics, I have always been inherently dubious about writing a "white paper" or design principles essay regarding Luminous Audio's cable theories. For decades we heard fundamental electrical engineers state that there are no definitive reasons that any audio cables should be "capable" of altering the sound in any way provided they would pass a bandwidth of 20-20k hz (a very easy task btw). After conversing with a recent engineer buddy of mine, Arthur Ball, I realized I had found my man to assist me with such a difficult task. Art...

99.95% of all electrical engineers deny there is any sonic difference in cables. Here is one who believed this for 40+ years until he auditioned ours just recently

Dear Tim, I have to tell you how well the new cables that you sent me are working out. Not only do they sound great, but the RCA Silver Reference cables that are for the link from phono cart to Phono II have solved a problem that I was having. This particular cable is un-shielded and installing them has eliminated a slight ground loop that was occurring with the shielded cables used previously. I am also very surprised to note that there is much less background noise on the phono inputs than with my previous cables. Sincerely, Doug Hurlburt Dynamic...

TALKING HIGH-END AUDIO W/ TIM STINSON

TALKING HIGH-END AUDIO W/ TIM STINSON

Owning the best home stereo system in your circle of friends deserves bragging rights. If this superlative is something you’re going for, we suggest contacting Tim Stinson. What sounds fine to the common person when listening to music through an average home stereo probably sounds like nails on chalkboard for Tim. He has a sharp ear and is a true audiophile in every sense of the word. We were first introduced to Tim through his engineering work on Fern & Roby’s Beam Speakers. When he’s not figuring out a way to make the most aesthetically pleasing looking speakers sound equally...
