KIMBER KABLE is one of the world's most respected cable manufacturers. Since Kimber's start in 1979, all of its products are U.S. made. The money you pay for Kimber-Kable is for superior design, engineering, construction & materials. Some of Kimber's competitors' spend far more for packagingf & advertising than for the actual product.

12TC $32.50/ft, SPEAKER CABLE of the YEAR, ABSOLUTE SOUND 1/2011; EDITOR'S CHOICE 3/11 "It's not easy surpassing a legend like the Kimber Kable 8TC - one of the most cost-effective, sonically assured & commercially successful wires in audio history. But Kimber has come up with a suitable encore in the 12TC. Not only does it retain the 8TC's characteristic balance of detail, liveliness, tonal neutrality & dynamic contrasts, but the 12TC also expands dynamics & breathes a bit more in all dimensions, auguring well for this legend-in-the-making."

VIBRAPODS - U.S. MADE
Soloist, $199, PRODUCT of the YEAR, "Significantly reduces both differential & common mode noise. Protection is exceptional. Innovative & highly recommended." ABSOLUTE SOUND 1/09
ABSOLUTE SOUND EDITOR'S CHOICE 9/09
Power Port Classic AC Receptacle, $49 ea, "Stronger music & blacker silence; far more midrange detail & delicacy. Improved dynamic range staggering. Noise floor lowered significantly; high-level dynamic slam seemed effortless. Lower bass extended another half-octave. Lowering of electrical noise is addictive." STEREOPHILE RECOMMENDED 4/11
DIGILINK III, $799, "More earthy & meaty sound than $1500 Musical Fidelity. Delves deep into bass & lets you know it. Keenly dynamic
enjoyable sound on CD & computer. If you find digital audio characterless & bland, this is the
antidote." Compared to Musical Fidelity, PS is 9db quieter, 50% less jitter, 3db more separation & over twice the output voltage. HI-FI NEWS 8/08
"Remarkably versatile - displays a sweetness & warmth which consistently locks into the heart of a musical performance. In addition to the sonic virtues, the versatility, ease of use & plug & play PC compatibility make this a winner. Its flexibility & performance make it a remarkably future-proof purchase." HI-FI+ #62
"Fantastic buy; well-built, elegant design & super simple to use. Without a doubt, improves the sound of most digital sources, adding life & excitement. Compared to $2000 CD players, it definitely held its own. With older CD player, you get a big improvement. Even if you're a vinyl lover, using this as a digital hub is great because you can now switch between digital sources, giving your preamp a few extra inputs. A winner. TONE #19, 2008
THE LEAST EXPENSIVE RECOMMENDED DAC. "Its upsampling feature takes standard CD playback into the high-resolution realm: it made standard-issue CDs sound similar to SACDs." ABSOLUTE SOUND 10/08
"Vibrapods are small, flexible vinyl pucks that can transform a system. Put them under speakers & electronics & hear bass extension & smoother highs. Vibrapod Cones - use them as stand alone footers or combine with Vibrapods to get even more out of your system." ABSOLUTE SOUND 11/12; EDITOR'S CHOICE 9/09
"PIaced under CD players, DACs & preamps, 1x3" dia. Vibrapods isolate & enhance performance. Five different models, rated for 2 - 28 lbs. loads
each; match the quantity to the component. I keep a box of them so no component goes without. A favorite." STEREOPHILE RECOMMENDED 4/11
