STEREOPHILE RECOMMENDED COMPONENT

2014-2015-2016

 

Our high performance IC-3 has established quite a following of satisfied customers, and genuinely impressed hi-end audio reviewers. This cable offers audiophile quality sonics in every aspect, at an entry-level price. Its performance translates to a simply stunning sonic experience. When we introduced the IC-3, it was our intention to provide the discriminating audio enthusiast with a new high performance, yet high value alternative.

The IC-3 is an extraordinarily transparent and detailed cable that will transport the listener to an experience simply not found at this price level. It also makes a fabulous choice for high end home theater systems.

Revealing every sonic nuance, the IC-3 is smooth, full-bodied, holographic, BIG and dynamic, with tight, extended bass. This cable will involve you in your musical experience like no other cable at or NEAR this price point! We guarantee it.

Features include silver-coated OFC stranded copper conductors insulated in an ultra-low loss foamed Polyethylene dielectric, which provides very low capacitance. The cable is also 100% shielded with aluminum mylar for complete immunity to noise. The IC-3 is DEAD quiet! Each cable is carefully terminated with our custom Audio Art XLR plugs, gold plated and machined from solid brass.

Writer's Choice Award 2006, Positive Feedback Online, Exceptional Value Award 2006, Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio Publisher. Its unanimous. Consumers around the world, and review publications agree. IC-3 is a new "budget reference" interconnect, and has taken up permanent residence in the systems of hi-end audio enthusiasts everywhere! And for all this, we say thank you. Dave Clark, editor of Positive Feedback Online says: "At the price, [the IC-3] is a real giant killer. Rich and tonally right, we were stunned as to how difficult it was to tell which cable was which in switching back and forth between the two [while comparing IC-3 to a $2,500 interconnect!]". And to quote Soundstage.com Has [Audio Art Cable owner] Robert Fritz achieved the goal of offering a product with reference-quality audiophile sonic properties at an affordable price? The answer is a resounding YES!"

Customers comments from Audio Art Cables

IC-3 Classic XLR, SC-5 Classic:
"I just wanted to let you know that I'm very happy with my balanced [IC-3] interconnects and [SC-5] speaker wire. I bought the 'classic' series. I could tell a noticeable improvement immediately. It was a bargain and I have to give you kudos one more time on your great communication and personalized service. A very pleasant experience." -Ron R., Belmont, NC

Power 1 Classic, SC-5 Classic, IC-3 Classic
"The power cables, interconnects, and speaker wire are all fantastic. Great build quality, great performance. Got rid of a few hums I had and my noise floor is basically nothing now. Thanks again and I'll be in touch if I need anything else! Your attentive responses and overall customer service are top notch!" -Ty M., San Diego, CA

SC-5 Classic, IC-3 Classic
"I've been listening to the cables for the past couple of weeks, and I couldn't be happier. Everything that bothered me in my system is now vastly reduced, and everything I liked is now there in greater degree. One of the things that I find particularly impressive is how very different each recording sounds from the other. In the past I would certainly notice an outstanding recording and hear how it rose above ordinary ones, but there was nowhere near the degree of difference I now hear among all recordings. It's a little alarming to think how much fog there must have been in the system before and how little of it I noticed. Happily, this new degree of clarity does not mean that things are leaner or sharper; on the contrary, one of the things I like best about the cables is how they have made everything smoother and more musical. The bass is more solid and tuneful, voices are more natural and present, details are clear without emphasis or strain, the soundstage is broad and deep and continuous, and everything is beautifully integrated in service to the musical flow. All in all I'm delighted with your work, and I'm enjoying music now more than ever (and to think that break-in is still going on!). Thanks so much for making that happen." - Mark C., Pelham, MA

 

"Stereophile 2014 Recommended Components"

Audio Art Classic IC-3:
The IC-3—available with Audio Art's own gold-plated brass RCA plugs or, for $10 more, DH Labs' Ultimate XLR plugs—uses conductors of silver-coated, oxygen-free copper, a foam polyethylene dielectric, aluminum-Mylar shielding, and a PVC jacket. Compared to AudioQuest's Big Sur, the IC-3 lacked some midrange body and warmth but produced a pleasantly forward, detailed sound with an unusually wide soundstage, said SM. Sold direct with a 30-day, money-back guarantee. (Vol.37 No.2 WWW)
