MADE IN GERMANY
THE SOURCE OF OUR SUCCESS
We don’t know where others acquire their cables. For our part, we manufacture our speaker cables here in Germany. And most of our home hi-fi and video cables in the Referenz and Exzellenz quality classes are manufactured by in-house production plants at Company headquarter in Ballrechten-Dottingen. Look for the ‘‘Made in Germany’’-sticker on our packaging.

HISTORY
The designation was originally introduced in the United Kingdom in the Merchandise Marks Act at the end of the 19th century in order to ensure that foreign products were clearly labelled as such. Foreign producers had previously been in the habit of fraudulently attaching the brand names of renowned British manufacturers to inferior goods and importing them into the United Kingdom.
“Made in Germany” was from the outset to be understood as a warning. But, in the course of just a few years, both manufacturing processes and the quality of the products underwent continuous improvements. Views changed. After the Second World War, “Made in Germany” was synonymous with the economic miracle of the 1960s. Nowadays, Germany, with its good infrastructure and its high technical, social and political standards, is the byword for seminal innovations and technological progress. Last but not least, values such as precision, reliability and hard work have transformed “Made in Germany” into a recognised seal of quality.

REFERENZ LS-2404 AIR - MAKING OF....
Just like all speaker and audio cables from the Referenz series, the LS-2404 AIR is entirely made in Germany. The clips are meticulously assembled by hand at the on-site factory and then threaded into the Cross Link Super Speed waveguide. The resulting Air Helix then receives a PE network jacket and rhodium-plated plugs before the finished cable is subject to thorough final inspection.

QUALITY MANAGEMENT
Our quality management system guarantees the highest precision. We make no concessions when it comes to dimensional tolerance, electrical parameters ad the performance of our cables and leads. This gives you absolute fitting precision and the utmost reliability. Certificates from independent institutions and testing laboratories guarantee that the highest standards are maintained.

HIGHEST POSSIBLE PRECISION
In our product design we do everything to ensure excellent quality from the outset. We subject our products to intense scrutiny and continuously carry out quality controls during the production process. For example, we inspect all materials for compliance with the acceptable quality level (AQL), the standard for “imported” materials and finished products. We check the tolerances of each individual part, the print quality, the colours and the construction. We investigate chemical and hazardous substances in accordance with RoHS and REACH. We test the electrics for short circuits and configuration at each production step. We carry out both functional and mechanical tests. And, of course, we test the live performance. This is what we mean by maximum precision.
