Echole Cables are arranged in five tiers – from the entry level PASSION through to the OBSESSION and SIGNATURE, right up to the ORIUS and our current flagship line, the OMNIA. Every cable in each tier is specifically designed to meet the uncompromising demands of dedicated high-end systems.
OMNIA is the flagship of Echole Cables. Meticulously designed and painstakingly hand-crafted, it represents the pinnacle of our range. OMNIA is the culmination of thousands of hours of research conducted by our team across many countries, dedicated to extending the boundaries of what has previously been thought possible in cable design. OMNIA achieves a rare life-like performance, beyond the realm of standard audiophile criteria.
Since 2008, Echole has won numerous awards including Best Sound of Show at C.E.S., Munich High-End, and the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF). Recently, Echole SIGNATURE synergy was evaluated by Robert Harley of The Absolute Sound (The Absolute Sound - Issue 234, July / August 2013) where the performance of Echole Cables in combination with Absolare electronics was described as ‘world-class’. Highly respected opinion leaders across 15 countries agree with this description, their collective testimony combined with widespread critical acclaim, confirms Echole’s reputation for excellence. The name Echole, being the ancient form of École (School), harks back to the art of listening that forms the foundation of all of our designs. All of Echole’s cables are designed and crafted according to the principles of naturalness and neutrality – the ultimate reference in the realm of ultra high-end audio cables.
Echole Cables are designed with the mission of attaining the absolute finest performance in every aspect of sound reproduction. Echole Cables are all hand-made by passionate highly skilled artisans and critically tuned to provide a deeply emotional connection to the music. Our clients agree and the world’s reviewers also agree. When a full loom of Echole Cables were in use, Best Sound was awarded more than two dozen times across the world’s most respected international high-end audio shows.
The most notable of Echole Cables’ exclusive features are its unique signal path and resonance control characteristics. The unique signal path is exemplified by:
The resonance control characteristics are embodied in:
OMNIA, ORIUS, SIGNATURE and OBSESSION all utilize Silver, Gold and Palladium alloys but their ratios differ within each tier. OMNIA has the highest level of Palladium and Gold, and the OBSESSION has the lowest. The PASSION model on the other hand, uniquely incorporates Silver/Gold/Palladium alloy plated and polished, 8N purity copper within its topology.
The OMNIA-grade alloy is the thickest solid-core Silver, Gold and Palladium alloy we believe ever manufactured. Apart from the unprecedented cost of the alloys themselves, the precise process of extruding this solid core alloy is also unique. All Echole Cables can be considered the most expensively manufactured cables within their price range with the SIGNATURE, ORIUS and OMNIA models being perhaps the most expensively built cables in the market today – developed from an unprecedented combination of sophisticated metallurgy and mechanical resonance control.
The purity of the signal path is defined by a meticulously crafted combination of three extremely pure, precious metals. Each of these elements contributes its own unique voice to the creation of the perfect alloy. Silver brings transparency, transient impact, decay, and harmonic resolution; Gold brings natural warmth and body and Palladium is the final touch, bringing texture and agility to the bass foundation and a rarely heard palpability to musical performance.
The development of Echole’s proprietary extrusion of this perfect alloy into a single solid core structure, is just the beginning of the exclusive processes required to reach sonic perfection. With a controlled internal resonance approach through the application of Echole-specific composites, unprecedented levels of musical involvement are experienced while all audiophile parameters are perfectly satisfied.
With such a purity and perfectly managed resonance, the speed is lifelike, the size of the instruments appears correct. The positioning of each instrument within any sized ensemble is exceptionally managed within the speaker’s imaging capabilities. All sounds arise in a compelling yet relaxed manner that naturally engages your senses – from the real world textures of the deepest bass to the thunderous crashing of cymbals, and their lingering decay, your mind is engaged at the deepest emotional level of musical performance. Echole does not present superficial sonic shifts. Through the unique design and production process we strive for the rendition of naturalness – as most of our clients refer, such a sonic purity is the starting reference for the audiophile.
