 The Absolute Sound - Robert Harley Reviews the ACC 268 - "Stratospheric"

What the heck is an Articulation Control Console?
To a cynic, it’s nothing more than a fancy name for a speaker cable. To others, the Articulation Control Console represents the culmination of everything MIT founder Bruce Brisson has learned over his 35-plus-year career designing..."Stratospheric", "..unlike any other differences I’ve heard between components".Read more here: The ACC 268 Review by Robert Harley

"MIT’s ACC 268 Articulation Control Consoles are unique in their conception, design, and, most importantly, performance. I confess to not fully understanding the concept of “articulation” in cables, or how the ACC 268 works, but I can report that no other cable I’ve heard offers the MIT’s foundational virtues or its flexibility in tuning a system’s sound. Yes, the MIT ACC 268 is crazy-expensive, but for those of you well-off enough to afford it, I don’t think that you’ll find a more musically rewarding speaker interface."

 Recipient of the 2017 Editor's Choice Award - The Absolute Sound

"MIT’s ACC268 “Articulation Control Consoles” are undoubtedly the world’s most expensive speaker cables, but they are unlike any cables extant. The control consoles are 45-pound enclosures housing the network along with unique adjustments that allow you to tune the cable to your system. This tuning has nothing to do with tonal balance, but rather with a dynamic verve in different parts of the frequency range. Beyond esoteric and justifiable in only the highest of high-end systems, the ACC268 delivers a sound quality that is unmatched by any other cable in RH’s experience. "

 Recipient of the 2017 Top Pick Award - The Absolute Sound

"The ACC 268’s adjustability takes the form of four knobs on the console’s top panel. Three of the knobs are marked “Low,” “Mid,” and “High,” respectively. The fourth on-off knob is marked “2C3D” (Two- Channel, Three-Dimensional). Rather than interpret the idea of “articulation” in cables, I’ve included an interview with Bruce Brisson so that you get the story straight from the horse’s mouth. "

 Munich High End 2016 - "Best Sound (Cost No Object)"

"At perhaps the best dealer showroom I’ve ever visited, MySound, the Wilson Alexx was paired with Pass Labs electronics, a Sound Devices 744T recorder into a Meitner DAC, and MIT cables and interconnects, including MIT’s new ACC 268 articulation consoles. On a wonderful recording by Peter McGrath of Beethoven’s Pathetique Sonata, the piano sounded very natural and realistic, with concussive impact, great focus, and beautiful timbre. This demonstration in an optimized room showed how good this speaker can be." Jonathan Valin

Munich High End 2016 - "Most Significant Product Introduction"

"MIT’s Articulation Consoles bring one closer to the sound of a live performance." Jonathan Valin

 Positive Feedback 2017 - Gregory Petan Reviews the ACC 169

"The soundstage conjured by the MIT really pushed the limits of the Sonus Faber Lilium loudspeakers, feeling limitless. Recordings and their inherent soundstages are revealed to the fullest."
"Acoustic instruments are extremely well served by the MIT. "Good bye-for My Father" from Brian Bromberg's Wood again, offers up a level of sheer tactile realism, unable to be reached with prior cable looms I've auditioned, with timbre and texture that is spot on"
"With these latest iterations MIT has thrown down a gauntlet for all others to traverse." Read more here: The ACC 169 Review by Gregory Petan

About the Articulation Control Console Series

MIT Articulation Control Consoles: “toward a visceral response” is the new direction MIT is heading with the release of this new line they coined “the Articulation Console Series”. There are three versions in this series, each outfitted with three articulation controls on each channel dashboard, plus a unique “2C3D” switch. Articulation control is now possible over three sections of the bandwidth, which allows the listener to adjust for challenging room conditions, equipment changes and sometimes software choices. The 2C3D switch engages more circuits to produce or “throw” more energy out into the room which helps to continue the suspension of disbelief that a live performance is within reach. Visit for more information on Multipole Technology and 2C3D. Articulation Control Consoles are shipping now.

The moniker Note Perfect was chosen by Bruce Brisson to represent MIT product or products that meet or exceed his best expectations. Look for this symbol of excellence when working on systems that are intended to return performance without peer.

ACC 268 and ACC 272BW are the cost no object, no holds barred, no detail not considered product of Bruce Brisson’s lifetime of engineering and design experience. This project culminates everything he has learned along the way of his 35 years leading our industry to the heights that were once unimaginable. The ACC 268 is his “manifesto” to the others who are seeking the highest ends of audio playback with the ultimate goal of transporting one’s self into the event, into the room and with the people who made some of the most beautiful sounds in the universe.

ACC Design considerations:
working quietly for a lifetime

The stylish CNC milled solid billet aluminum enclosure used for the ACC 268 is the largest MIT has ever produced. This is warranted both by the size of the internal parts as well as “proximity sensitivities” that must be considered as the parts are located. Articulation control consoles include several new anti-resonance schemes, including internal surface alignments and new methods of isolation.

Machined enclosures:
technology and performance

The internal parts of each ACC interface are primarily handmade and require about 200 hours of labor to complete. Each component is meticulously matched, piece by piece. every part is positioned and hand soldered in place. The complexity and number of networks involved require more internal space and insulation from vibration. This is managed by mounting and isolating the network assemblies on an internal plinth, eliminating sympathetic resonances that can affect playback. The result is imaging of unprecedented clarity and dimension.
