Nice dealers' event in Linz, Austria.
Two stars more in detail
Outstanding, limited Chisto Das Klang Vintage-DNA cables used for RCA connections, speaker cables (Bi-Wiring) and power cords. There was also a nice comparison with very noble, Japanese cables.
Italian Cammino Power Harmonizer H3.1 helped for a perfect, clean electricity. As a clever passive device it does not limit the dynamics. Sonus Faber i was told use the Cammino since several years for their setups.
Chisto made it. First USB cable based on “Vintage DNA inside" technology.
We never wanted to do it as we are pure analog guys. Our Austrian dealer Walter Kircher who is diehard Das Klang addict asked several times. We used to say no. It was for us a heresy of mixing XO cognac with Cola, a heresy of adding ice cubes to 25 years old single malt whiskey. It was Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci drama of old husband and young wife. We resisted also as soon as have a very limited and treasured stock of vintage materials.
But one day after a morning meditation Yuri Zamazeev, Chisto CEO, ceased to be an analog racist and agreed to do it for Walter. We checked USB specification and realized it was made to make cable really cheap for computer applications. No way for high performance audio. We checked other audio vendors and wondered what esoteric and ridiculous approaches they used. Our approach was simple - no swag as soon a nobody will see the cable in your setup, best vintage aged materials of 60s and military signal approach.
After first introduction at Klangbilder Show 2014 in beautiful Vienna this cable easily outperformed nearest competitors. Instant fluid and organic sound, rich texture. Why? Maybe because USB cables is the weakest point in computer audio.
Only 99 made. #01 is secured for our mentor Mark Levinson. Do not ask for this serial number.
Available only at selected dealers at 1799 Euro (1,5 m version).
Chisto, a worldwide leader in audio/video cosmetics broadens its accessories line DAS KLANG with new power cord made of aged materials.
DAS KLANG by Chisto® follows the paradigm of using vintage cables in audio products. Why? Good question. Actually we were aware that any vintage cable easily outperform modern ones, but did not know why. History of metallurgy showed the answer. The technology of refining copper changed. Also most of modern cables use chinese copper that is actually a recycled one. It is absolutely ok for common electrical applications, but we at chisto do not want to sacrifice the pleasure of music to modern business processes.
Comes in standard and Plus version with upgraded connectors.
