Audiomica Laboratory of Poland’s Gorlice township are a well-established cable manufacturer and household name in their country and for good reason. Plowing the audio fields where probably the most of all hifi controversy resides, the men and women of Audiomica are not afraid of kicking sacred cows. Take active filtration in cables. This raises the blood pressure of most devout audiophiles. Thou shallst not tamper with the signal is their cherished belief. But what if that very tampering helps to get far better results? Isn’t every component in an audio system a form of filter? Whenever we introduce a new cable, the sound changes. Sometimes we praise the workings of that cable as being the ultimate revelation. Sometimes we simply dislike the results.

The simple fact is that we start with a signal which is what it is – the result of musicians playing, recording engineers recording, mixing engineers mixing, producers adding their flavour and the mastering engineer finalizing the product. That product is what we must deal with. Alas everything which now follows in the process called playback becomes a form of filtering.

If not we’d have attained to the mythical straight wire with gain, the squaring of the circle for everything. But that’s plainly impossible as decades of audio development prove painfully. No medium has been best. Shellac, vinyl, tape, optical disc or magnetic storage… the optimum has not been found.

On the playback side there are tubes. Transistors. Ribbons. AMTs. Electrostats. Dynamics. Passive preamps. Active preamps. PCM or DSD processing. Whatever you could possibly come up with, none of it has no effect. That's simply the hifi reality all of us face.
