German high performance Hi-Fi interconnect company In-akustik is now available via Karma-AV. Guided by a ‘physics not voodoo’ philosophy, the company offers a four strong line-up, with ‘Star,’ ‘Premium,’ ‘Excellence’ and ‘Reference’ class cables.

The proposition for system builders is that while all cables will connect A to B, their susceptibility to interference, inadequate material properties and small cross-sections mean that signals will suffer losses during transmission.

The brand’s focus on minimising signal loss involves the use of pure silver, in the flagship Reference Air Series, and the purest OFC for highest conductivity; the application of multi-layer shielding to counteract electromagnetic interference, and the adoption of high-quality polyethelene (PE) insulation to prevent corrosion and damage while reducing energy storage (capacitance) by a factor of two over PVC.

In addition, the design of larger cross-sections is said to conduct resistance across the range and accommodates the brand’s flexible ‘air-helix’ structure that reduces dialectric losses, available on its ‘Reference’ cables.

Karma’s in-akustik offering includes the brand’s esoteric Reference Air speaker cables and interconnects, its Excellence digital, XLR and speaker cables, Premium optical and phono leads and a range of specialised subwoofer cables.

Price range from £40 to £27,000
