“I felt I had to note the sound in this room. Cabling was all-MIT, with MIT Oracle MA-X balanced connections between preamp and power amplifier and with MIT’s new Heritage series 2C3D Level 1 speaker cables and MIT’s Z-Strip providing clean AC power.”

CES 2018 - Stereophile - John Atkinson

“I have been attending CES since 1979 and music-rich experiences like this are what keeps the show real for me.”
“…every detail of the complex, tone cluster-rich scoring was clearly revealed, yet without any unnatural spotlighting, and with superbly natural tone colors.” John Atkinson

Munich High End 2017 - Jonathan Valin on the Heritage Series - The Absolute Sound

“I was able to finally get a seat in the Magico room featuring the company’s S3 MkII loudspeakers, Spectral electronics, and MIT’s MI-2C3D Level ONE speaker cables and impedance-matching line-level interfaces from its new Heritage series. According to MIT, the Heritage series incorporates significant cost reductions, such as smaller capacitors and inductors from those in MIT’s reference Oracle and Matrix products, but with similar circuit topologies. This is the kind of trickle-down I’ve been waiting to see! The sound of the system was lifelike and present, with terrific clarity and immediacy, broad soundstaging, and very good transparency.” Jonathan Valin

MIT Heritage - MI-2C3D

The Challenge:

The challenge – Two years ago another manufacturer from High End Audio suggested to Bruce Brisson C.E.O MIT Cables, “The industry needs a great sounding $10k Speaker Cable without switches or exotic enclosure materials and finishes”. Further, he challenged Bruce to deliver $30k in performance for $10k at the point of sale. He took the challenge. High on Bruce’s list was to maintain the lineage of the “Heritage sound” combined with the “Heritage look”

This feat would require extreme cuts in parts, labor and materials. Machined aluminum enclosures were eliminated and switching options removed. While his circuit topologies remained similar or the same, capacitor and inductor sizes were reduced by using more “through hole” technology along with printed circuit boards. To put it simply; Bruce took Oracle and Matrix topologies, used smaller capacitors and inductors and ‘stuffed’ them into the original Shotgun and Magnum (AKA Heritage enclosures).

The Heritage MI-2C3D Series: The answer

The Heritage MI-2C3D Series: The answer – The cable Bruce created to answer the challenge became the MI-2C3D Level 2. Complete 30K performance at a 10K price point. Challenge met. Not one to quit there, Bruce continued to “bracket” this design with another offering even better performance and one with a little less technology, offered at an even lower price point. These interfaces are the new MIT MI-2C3D Series and available at three levels and three price points; Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.

MIT Heritage - EVO - less than 4K for High End Performance

MIT Heritage - EVO

The Heritage EVO Series - The Evolution of performance interfaces below $4K

Over the last 35 years MIT has introduced many successful products that garnered a large following based (in part) on excellent reviews published by the absolute sound “Music Interface Technologies AVt1”,  6  “MIT Cables Shotgun S1 Loom” , and Stereophile recommended components “MIT CVT Terminator 2”.

This After completion of the 2C3D project, Bruce decided to look into keeping these three special models alive by enhancing them with improved parts and miniaturizing techniques inside other “Heritage Enclosures”. This would allow him to resurrect and perpetuate them as the EVO One, EVO Two and EVO Three models. Bruce regards this project as a ”homage” to these highly regarded products and reviews. With the inclusion of three EVO versions, MIT will introduce the complete Heritage Series for 2017.

 Over the past three decades and through to 2017, the technology used in these speaker interfaces and interconnects have received multiple industry awards including; Product of the Year, Editor’s Choice, Blue Moon, Best Sound, Best of Show, and many more.
