Musikmesse 2018: VOVOX introduces new sonorous XL cable range

At this year’s Musikmesse show VOVOX has unveiled its newest range of cables. The sonorus XL is a top-of-the-line cable series designed for both musicians and studios.

Since the Swiss company was founded 15 years ago, its sound conductors have been recognised worldwide. The new ‘sonorus XL’ range follows on from the company’s flagship sonorus cables. The main technological advance from ‘sonorus’ to ‘sonorus XL’ is hidden in the crystalline structure of the unusually large, solid-core copper conductors.

“As a consequence of their exceptional construction, the ‘sonorus XL’ cables are not for everyone,” explained VOVOX founder Jurg Vogt. “The unusual stiffness of these sound conductors is a challenge. On the other hand, ‘sonorus XL’ has a lot to offer. The sonority, resolution, and dynamic range exceed what we had achieved in our previous ‘sonorus’ range of cables.”

This novel series of cables is perfect for ambitious session musicians, as well as mastering studios. The cable’s rigidity makes it often unsuitable for live use on stage. These cables were initially reserved exclusively for selected VOVOX endorsers. Two years of testing with world-class artists such as Melvin Lee Davis, Jesse Milliner and Lillo Scrimali has led the Swiss specialists at VOVOX to make the XL cable range available to all sound aficionados.

“The feedback we received was so enthusiastic that it was simply a must to offer the cables to a wider audience. We are obviously not the only sound-nerds around!” exclaimed Vogt.

Session bass player Melvin Lee Davis (Chaka Khan, George Duke, Lee Ritenour) said this about the new range: “This cable absolutely floored me, it has no equal! The construction, the sound quality-there is nothing like it in the industry. The ‘sonorus XL’ is a life-changer for the professional musician who cares about true sound reproduction.”

VOVOX ‘sonorus XL’ instrument cables are available in the standard length of 3.0 m (10 ft). Custom lengths are available upon request. The balanced VOVOX ‘sonorus XL’ direct S are available in various lengths ranging from 1.0 m (3 ft.), to 5.0 m (15 ft.).

VOVOX and the new sonorus XL cables can be found at Hall 4.1, Booth F32.
