WHAT THE HELL?

Seriously serious seriousness.

KrappyKables started as a joke...until it got serious. 

We've spent hours researching materials and cable testing techniques. We spent thousands of dollars on new equipment to ensure accurate testing data. We ran dozens of comparative tests. We tried dozens of materials and topologies. We have an entire trash can full of prototypes that simply were not good enough.  We believe that our Kables represent some of the best available on the market, at any price. Our interconnect designs are Patent Pending, we believe they are THAT good.

ITS JUST A CABLE.

Except it never is.

When utilizing any cable it becomes an integral part of two circuits. Every cable is a resistor, capacitor and inductor… all at once. Incidentally, those are also the major components of a crossover network. These effects are less pronounced in speaker cables where voltage swings are frequently in the dozens of volts. But where it really shows up is in smaller signals on both speaker and line/phono level cables. 


THEY'RE ALL PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.

Dont think so.

The goal of every cable design is to minimize these effects on the intended signal. EVERY cable is a compromise from the ideal, including KrappyKables. KrappyKables has tested hundreds of cables to get a good idea of what and why cables affect sound like they do. Some very expensive cables test very poorly and sound like it too. Some cables are very well thought out and test well and generally sound very transparent.

EVERYTHING IS COMPROMISED

Including our Kables.

The biggest problem every cable manufacturer has is figuring out what compromise will sound the best (or at least different), and make them the most money. KrappyKables had decided to trade off interference rejection and durability for more ideal capacitance, inductance and absolute performance. Yep, our Kables are fragile and prone to RF interference from strong nearby sources. Tough shit, You can't have everything.
