VOVOX Debuts the the Sonorus XL Cable

VOVOX Debuts the the Sonorus XL Cable

The cables feature an unusually large, solid-core copper conductor.

Frankfurt, Germany (April 13, 2018) -- VOVOX is debuting its newest range of cables, "sonorus XL." This top-of-the-line cable series is designed for both musicians and studios that demand only the best possible sound, without compromise.

Since the Swiss company was founded 15 years ago, their sound conductors have gained an excellent reputation worldwide. For some users, the 'sonorus' series cables are the reference in fidelity and audio quality. With the new 'sonorus XL' range of cables, VOVOX proves that there is still room for improvement-even with such a high level of quality already attained.

The main technological advance from 'sonorus' to 'sonorus XL' is hidden in the crystalline structure of the unusually large, solid-core copper conductors. "As a consequence of their exceptional construction, the 'sonorus XL' cables are not for everyone," founder and VOVOX mastermind Jurg Vogt admits. "The unusual stiffness of these sound conductors is a challenge. On the other hand, 'sonorus XL' has a lot to offer. The sonority, resolution, and dynamic range exceed what we had achieved in our previous 'sonorus' range of cables."

This novel series of cables is perfect for ambitious session musicians, as well as mastering studios. The cable's rigidity makes it often unsuitable for live use on stage. These cables were initially reserved exclusively for selected VOVOX endorsers. Two years of testing with world-class artists such as Melvin Lee Davis, Jesse Milliner and Lillo Scrimali has led the Swiss specialists at VOVOX to make the XL cable range available to all sound aficionados.

"The feedback we received was so enthusiastic that it was simply a must to offer the cables to a wider audience. We are obviously not the only sound-nerds around!" exclaims Vogt. Session bass player Melvin Lee Davis (Chaka Khan, George Duke, Lee Ritenour) added with enthusiasm, "This cable absolutely floored me, it has no equal! The construction, the sound quality-there is nothing like it in the industry. The 'sonorus XL' is a life-changer for the professional musician who cares about true sound reproduction."

VOVOX 'sonorus XL' instrument cables are available in the standard length of 3.0 m (10 ft). Custom lengths are available upon request. The balanced VOVOX 'sonorus XL' direct S are available in various lengths ranging from 1.0 m (3 ft.), to 5.0 m (15 ft.).

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
