Multipole Technology Explained
Discover what many recording and film studios have known for the past 25 Years— MIT Audio Interfaces deliver the highest degree of signal integrity!
Every audio cable, no matter the manufacturer, has a point along the audio bandwidth where the relationship of capacitance and inductance is most efficient at storing energy. We refer to this point of efficiency as an Articulation Pole. Electrically, articulation is a measure of the efficiency of a cable or network to store energy and transport power. This transportable power is used to move the speaker and produce sound. The more efficiently the energy is stored and then transported, the more natural the sound will be.
A cable that has its Articulation Pole tuned to a high frequency is described by audiophiles as “bright” or “fast.” Conversely, a cable that has its Articulation Pole tuned to a lower frequency would be described by audiophiles as “muddy” or “veiled.” MIT Cables’ interfaces are engineered to have multiple Articulation Poles.
Theoretically, if you could use three different cables at the same time, each with a different Articulation Pole, to interconnect two audio components together, you would have an interface with three Articulation Poles; one for the highs, one for the mids, and one for the lows. Together, they would work to transport the audio signal from component to component with more articulation. This is what MIT Cables accomplishes with its patented technology, to a much greater extent, within each engineered interface. We call this Multipole Technology. The benefit is more lifelike vocals and instruments, mid and high frequencies become less bright or tiring, voices are clear and understandable, and bass frequencies become tight and deep.
Graph A: Represents the bandwidth of an 88-key piano, highlighted in blue, as it compares to the audible range of the human ear.
Graph B: Standard (single pole) cables have a relatively narrow region (yellow arch) where the cable is articulating ideally. Note that the blue area remaining is considered less than ideal in terms of articulation.
Graph C: Using MIT’s Patented Multipole™ Technology, MIT engineers add additional Articulation Poles to further extend the articulation bandwidth of your audio system. This example shows 8 Articulation Poles
When choosing cables, look for the Multipole Technology logo with the performance rating. There, you will see how many articulation poles are in each MIT design. This simple feature will help you select the correct performance level for any system, with complete confidence and accuracy.
It’s like having multiple cables in one!TM
