"…The Maestro speaker cables were the only cables fitted with spade lug terminations that truly fit the Paradigms with a minimum of fuss…The Audience Maestro and Conductor cabling was ultimately so satisfying and suited to my needs that I'm very curious about the upscale Au24 line." – Marc Phillips, Tone Audio

The Maestro cables are placed in the middle of the Audience cable lineup between the technically advanced Au24 cables and the high performance/price ratio Conductor cables. Like all cables by Audience, the Maestro are designed for low eddy-current resistance. We have found low eddy-current resistance to be the most important quality in high-resolution audio and video cables. The Maestro cables are of rugged construction, suitable for professional/broadcast environments. To achieve greater sonic purity, the physical design leans towards simplicity. Subjectively, a natural musical timbre is realized. There is a strong similarity to the Au24 cables but perhaps without the ultimate degree of resolution achieved by the Au24. Still, the similarities far outweigh the differences.
Maestro cables are an excellent choice when high resolution combined with rugged construction and moderate price are called for.
