At Siltech, we strive for ultimate audio quality, so we evaluate our products in extensive listening tests. But before that, much research, prototyping, designing and measuring are undertaken. Cable research is a costly though exciting endeavour, like the exploration of the Earth was in the 15th century. And there is always the risk of misinterpreting your findings or being led in the wrong way. Columbus called the Native Americans ‘Indians’ for he thought he had landed in India. It proves the importance of checking and double-checking, using the most advanced measuring equipment and the latest insight. If Columbus had a sextant or, even better, a GPS, he would never have made that mistake.
