Advanced laboratory test and measurement equipment enabled Music Interface Technologies to include Fractional Articulation Technology in the designs of its reference level products. MIT first unveiled this technology in 2010 as “Fractional Articulation Technology” (F.A.T.) in its Oracle MA-X HD Rev. 2 Speaker Interfaces. Thanks to improved manufacturing techniques, MIT is proud to offer this technology in an entirely new product line, including Super High Definition Speaker Interfaces.
What is Fractional Articulation Technology and HD Switching?
Prior to 2007, the thrust of MIT Cables’ engineering focused on optimizing a cable’s ability to transport an audio signal octave-to-octave. In 2007, MIT introduced Maximum Articulation technology which built upon previous Oracle designs to include the optimization of harmonics outside the octave. In 2010, this technology was expanded to allow the user to fine tune system articulation, helping to further optimize the articulation of harmonics that reside outside the octave, preserving pitch and ensuring the consonance or integrity of the musical experience.
Fractional Articulation Technology was born of a test and measurement technique called Fractional Octave Analysis, going another step in optimizing and maintaining the harmonic structure of the audio signal. Instead of concentrating only on harmonics outside the octave, interval optimization within the octave is achieved, improving the natural textures and density of the music. Simply put, by combining both Maximum Articulation and Fractional Articulation technologies, more of the audio signal is properly transported through the interface. Further, the user has more control of his or her entire listening experience as F.A.T. is activated or deactivated by the use of a simple switch.

What is 2C3D® Technology?
In this update, Bruce Brisson has provided the listener with the ability to engage a network not present in the original Oracle MA-X SHD: a Two-Channel Three-Dimensional (“2C3D”) circuit. 2C3D® technology provides listeners with the opportunity to engage a second switch to activate this additional circuit board of tuned networks. Once 2C3D® is engaged, the cables will launch energy into the room creating a more physical and immersive experience, much like recalling the “feel” of a live musical performance.

Oracle SHD 120 Rev.1, Rev.2 - 2015, 2014, 2013 Editor's Choice Award - The Absolute Sound
By means of MIT’s new F.A.T. (Fractional Articulation Technology), Oracle Matrix speaker cables improve transient response and resolution with the turn of a built-in switch that engages more “poles of articulation” within their CNC-milled T6 aluminum “network” boxes…
Oracle HD 90 Rev.1, Rev.2 - 2015, 2014, 2013 Editors' Choice Award - The Absolute Sound
In their “High-Definition” position, the Matrices are, indeed, capable of very high resolution and transparency to sources, while also preserving the colorlessly neutral tonal palette that MIT has long been known for…
Oracle MA-X SHD Interconnects - 2017, 2018 Editors' Choice Award - The Absolute Sound
Oracle MA-X SHD Interconnects - 2017 Writers' Choice Award - Positive Feedback
“The ACC 268’s adjustability takes the form of four knobs on the console’s top panel. Three of the knobs are marked “Low,” “Mid,” and “High,” respectively. The fourth on-off knob is marked “2C3D” (Two- Channel, Three-Dimensional). Rather than interpret the idea of “articulation” in cables, I’ve included an interview with Bruce Brisson so that you get the story straight from the horse’s mouth. “
