SIGNATURE LINE

The MasterBuilt Signature Line is the premier audio cable of their class.  Designed and manufactured to aerospace quality levels and technology standards, the Signature line sets the bar for extremely high sonic performance levels.  Based on technology developed to ensure accurate spacecraft signal transmission, the Signature Line has unmeasurable coloration  or reactance caused by improper winding geometry of lesser cables.  The Signature Line utilize U.S. laboratory-grade Single Crystal pure copper, refined to the purest level.  Combined with proprietary counter-helix winding geometry to avoid inductance and capacitance interactions, the Signature Line also offers the world’s finest quality connectors to transmit the musical signal with accuracy.  If your stereo system and music is an important part of your life, the MasterBuilt Signature Line of audio cables should be your only choice.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT POWER CORDS:  Audiophiles should realize that the first component in the system is the power cord.  This “first component” must be distortion-free and able to conduct a very large amount of current and voltage into the component.  It is known that the musical signal consists of voltage and current sourced from the a.c. wall outlet, and the electrical components simply “modulate” that power into a musical waveform.  Even expensive, medium-quality power cords will add distortion or remove quality of the signal.  For that reason, a high quality and non-reactive cable should be used, as once the signal has been corrupted, it is impossible to reverse this damage regardless of the quality of components that follow.


The Signature Line power cords are a significant advancement in signal transmission technology and superior to all other high-end audio power cords.  By utilizing U.S. Laboratory Grade Single Crystal copper and the finest Nano Crystal Formula plugs available with the most advanced insulation and proprietary winding geometry, Signature Line power cords filter out EMI and RFI beyond what was previously possible.  This lowers the noise level and creates a “blackness” in your system which provides enormous levels of dynamic range combined with ultra-high resolution of fine detail.  Combined, these features will enable your system to sound more dynamic, holographic, and enhance the low level background detail.

INTERCONNECTS

MasterBuilt Signature Interconnects offer an extremely high standard of signal transmission between the source components, preamplifier, and power amplifier.  By the elimination of parasitic effects of excess resistance, capacitance, and inductance, the Signature Interconnects can transmit the musical signal so faithfully that their introduction to your system will be as dramatic as any major component upgrade.  Our engineers designed these handcrafted cables to perform at a level higher than was previously thought possible.  If you value holographic image focus, clarity and transparency along with a bold dynamic range, you owe it to yourself and your music to upgrade to the MasterBuilt Signature Line Interconnects.  Available in single ended RCA or balanced XLR formats, these interconnects are U.S. built with laboratory-grade single-crystal copper along with our proprietary manufacture techniques.  Truly one of the world’s finest cable products, you will be thrilled with their performance.

DIGITAL CABLES

The purity of digital transmission is just as critical as analog and even the smallest amount of signal degradation will result in inferior performance, the digital signal from your source is highly critical.  Our digital cables are design to have an optimized impedance as per the type of cables: SPDIF ~ 75ohm; USB ~ 90ohm; AES/EBU ~ 110ohm.Furthermore, the connector and cable design are optimized to achieve the least amount of losses (ie. insertion loss and return loss) for the digital signal transfer between the transport/server and DAC. These interconnect utilize Signature Line technology including U.S. laboratory Single Crystal Copper along with our proprietary manufacturing processes to deliver the highest performing interconnect in its class.  The benefit of our cable design, high grade conductors, and materials translate to a digital cable with low jitter and attenuation loss.

SPEAKER CABLES

Many audiophiles have purchased expensive speaker cables and later became dissatisfied with the sound of their audio systems.  In many cases, cables built to look expensive and marketed with buzz words to impress the potential consumer do not live up to the hype.  Many music lovers are initially impressed with the silver wires beneath the inexpensive clear plastic cover, or the beautifully made “magic boxes” that contain circuitry designed to compensate for some perceived engineering weakness such as time delay or phase shift inherent in that type of cable.  Unfortunately, it is all too common to hear coloration in extremely expensive audiohphile cable brands.

Our engineers at MasterBuilt designed the Signature Line of speaker cables to be as close to sonic perfection as possible without resorting to truly exotic and costly methods as used in the Ultra Line.  The same technology used by spacecraft which require mission critical reliable and accurate signal data transfer.  Signal corruption is not an option for satellites or human fairing craft alike.

These award winning speaker cables transmit a musical signal through long lengths without inducing reactance, which include resistance, capacitance, and inductance.  Truly neutral and with noise level far lower than the competition, the Signature Line of Speaker Cables exceed the performance of top tier lines from the premier “Audiophile” cable companies.
