Welcome to Joe Abrams' Equus Audio
You can't make this stuff up:
Over the past 40 years, I have held executive positions with
- Monster Cable
- Tara Labs
...and consulted to a half-dozen more.
Why does this matter? At Equus Audio, my job is to give you good advice about how to match your components with the cables that will make your system sound its best. This requires an overview; an understanding of how sources, amplification, speakers, cables, and power conditioning all work together. When an audio system is matched optimally...
MIT Matrix REV 2020 Products from Equus Audio
Matrix Rev 2020 Product Overview
by Bruce Brisson
Ordinary cables try to influence the sound by simply fiddling with the gauge of wire, the purity of the copper conductor, or quality of the dielectric. MIT’s cables are “Engineered Audio Interfacing Solutions”; High Performance Audio Interfaces which use precisely engineered networks, which are much more accurate in transporting complex music signals.
However, depending on the sophistication of the networks we use, the properties of the copper and dielectrics that comprise the cable, as well as the type of enclosures we house the networks in, MIT Audio Interfaces can become highly expensive to manufacture.
Our goal in introducing the Matrix REV series is to meet the demands of Audiophiles who desire performance that exceeds simple audio cable, albeit at a more down-to-earth price point than something like our ACC-268 Console.
Sometime back, I had begun an engineering project that would improve the performance of the MIT Matrix Line, introduced back around 2012. But I had to shelve the project as other demands took priority. About six months ago, in the fall of 2019, I decided to revisit that project.
It turns out this became a benefit to the Audiophile sector I was designing this product for; as I decided to add more sophisticated networks than I had originally intended. This would, of course, result in an increase in the Articulation Pole count, which in turn would also increase the performance of this new MIT Matrix REV product line.
While I am not releasing the actual articulation pole count for this new Matrix REV product line, I can guarantee that we have increased the number of Articulation Poles, ranging in scale from 20% to 40% over the original MIT Matrix products, that this new Matrix REV product line is replacing.
However, while the articulation pole count is quantitative, the real question of the Audiophile always is; how has MIT improved the new Matrix REV products, audibly?
The advanced technologies we added to the Matrix Rev series have helped to optimize Harmonic structure. This in turn improves Timbre, which in turn improves Textures, which some refer to as Density, analogous to increasing the amount of pixels within a digital picture.
- 2C3D Hologram -- Our proprietary 2C3D technology is part of all of these products, resulting in a more life-like soundstage with improved imaging. With 2C3D the size and dimensions of the sound stage are much more life-like and the stereo imaging both between the speakers, as well as the left, versus right, out of phase information has been greatly improved over the earlier Matrix products.
MIT invented the ‘Two Channel Three Dimensional’ (2C3D) technology back in the 1990’s.
Over the years, we have improved the 2C3D technology many times. MIT uses the Basic 2C3D technologies in REV 25.
We are using the 2C3D technologies ranging from the years 2000 to 2010 for all the other Matrix REV interconnects and speaker cables.
- Fractional Articulation Technology – Developed using a test and measurement technique called “Fractional Octave Analysis,” F.A.T. reveals all the music that exists inter-octave. The listener will hear improved detail and clarity, surrounding each musical note. (REV 50, and REV 60 only)
The audible performance differences in every system in which we have tested these new products, have confirmed that the performance of each and every new Matrix Rev product, is easily heard in terms of improved Timbre, Textures, as well as Transient Response, and Imaging, versus the original Matrix products.
More Good News
Following this release of these new Matrix REV Interfaces, I will be releasing a highly improved Matrix REV AC Power cable. This new cable line will include improvements resulting from additional noise filtration, and will still use the parallel, or shunt filtering that MIT invented and patented circa the early 1990’s. However, these power cables will also include a new technology I have recently invented, which I call Energy Management or (EM). Energy Management is a ‘Trickle Down’ technology from the highly regarded, but very expensive MIT Power Management Console (PMC).
This new Matrix Rev 2020 product line has been designed by me for you, the Audiophile community, which – with our sincere thanks -- has supported MIT dating back to 1984.
