Frequently Asked Questions

In this section:

What is the difference between the Classic IV Series and the Omega Extreme Series?

The Omega Extreme Series was designed for professional monitoring and studio use. Its resolution is second to none.

The Classic IV Series—while it has strong resolving capabilities—is a smoother sounding and thus more forgiving cable.

Both Series are hand made to the same exact standards.

What does NBS stand for?

NBS stands for Nothing But Signal. This is the key to the design philosophy behind our cables. At NBS, we do not attempt to "reproduce" sound. Instead, we RETRIEVE what's on the recording.

Most audio cables incorporate devices of one type or another to filter-out undesirable frequencies. While these devices do remove a certain amount of hiss, they also, by their very nature, add to the noise floor. NBS cable does NOT employ any ancillary device. We use a unique weave of solid core copper combined with unconventional applications of silver shielding to achieve true retrieval of the recorded sound.

As a result, NBS cables deliver the lowest noise floor in the industry - reducing Radio Frequency and Electromagnetic Interferences up to 98% - while transmitting the FULL dynamic range of recorded sound. That's why, with NBS cables, you literally hear nothing but signal. This is the primary reason why NBS cables convey such a realistic presence.

You can test this with your own ears by listening to the pauses in recordings. No one delivers silence like NBS. You'll also experience an increased gain (volume boost) as well as significantly greater clarity and recognition with NBS cables.
