The Beginning of High-End Audio Cables

The First Purposefully Built High End Audio Cable

Bruce Brisson, Founder and Lead Engineer at MIT Cables discusses the early patents and design of the first high-end audio cable built to address inherent problems of simple cabling. His early designs were licensed to Monster Cable.



What's in the Box?

At MIT, we are often asked, “What’s in the box?” What is more important to understand is what the components inside the box accomplish. Only the engineers at MIT understand the differences between harmonics, inharmonics and overtones and how “just cable” can negatively impact the music’s timbre. Only MIT cables preserve the natural timbre of the music because the natural harmonics of the music are not replaced with overtones.

Learn more about what’s “in the box” and the difference MIT audio interfaces can make in your system.


Multipole Technology Overview

MIT Cables founder Bruce Brisson began purposefully designing audio cables in the 1970’s after encountering the sonic problems inherent in cables typical of the day. He later founded Music Interface Technologies in 1984 after patenting and licensing his early designs to other manufacturers, producing some of the audio industry’s most ground-breaking and seminal products.

MIT Cables core audio cable technology is our exclusive Poles of Articulation, named after the fact that every audio cable has a single point where it is most efficient at storing and transporting energy. At this point in the audio frequency spectrum, the cable will articulate best, and represents the cables’ particular Articulation Pole.


What is Timbre?

the quality given to a sound by its overtones: such as

a : the resonance by which the ear recognizes and identifies a voiced speech sound

b : the quality of tone distinctive of a particular singing voice or musical instrument

MIT Cables provides some insight, explanation, and how and why we develop our products to present the recorded event as close “to being there” as possible…

Predator Series

Predator Series

MIT’s Predator Series Power Noise Traps are a simple and affordable way to increase both audio and video performance in your system and headphones, bringing you more enjoyment from your music, movies and video games. Sources of extraneous noise will affect both your audio and video signals, as well as slowing down the digital data streams on your networks, and can manifest itself as subtle grainy distortions, compressed imaging, and unnatural or harsh timbre. Similarly, video picture quality will suffer in the form of slight graininess or snow, especially in darker pictures. The level of contrast and depth of field are affected, as is the natural detail that comes from accurately passing very high frequencies. In extreme conditions, line noise can create visible hum bars and color shifts.

Predator Power Strip Noise Trap Demo

MIT’s Patented Parallel AC Filterpoles include specially tuned networks for eliminating reflected noise, converting it to harmless thermal hand discharging it to the ground. This is done by creating a very low impedance across the load at a variety of frequencies corresponding to sources of unwanted noise. By using MIT’s Predator Series Power Strip Noise Trap, you will experience better black levels and color saturation as well as a lower noise floor, giving your audio enhanced dimensionality and a more natural timbre. Just plug it in, and let the Predator take your audio and video quality to the next level!

Vero Series

The Vero Headphone Cable

MIT’s latest venture into the Personal Audio market. Our patented Multipole technology used in our speaker interfaces and audio interconnects are successfully integrated in headphone cable replacement cables for several brands of high-end headphones. Learn about the development background and hear the comments from audiophiles  at various shows.
