Philex engineers were asked to apply
their knowledge of interconnect design in the development
of a complete range of high-end AV interconnects that reflected
their latest engineering techniques, and would allow the
end-user the freedom to combine components regardless of
the type of connectors utilized by the various manufacturers.
Most importantly they had to maintain state of the art quality
while remaining cost effective.
The starting point was to design high performance interconnects
for superior connections between high resolution DVD, DVD
players, S-VHS, DV and Hi8 video recorders and normal/widescreen
TV's, plasma displays, video monitors and projectors.
a feat, considering the our original Q Series audio, video
and digital interconnects didn't leave much room for improvement.
But Philex is not the kind of company to rest on its considerable
laurels. So, befitting our reputation as trend setters in
innovative advancements in audio/visual technology, we set
about the difficult task of fine-tuning some of our most
advanced interconnects to offer the ultimate performance
on today's high-end audio and video systems.
The first task was to select the finest materials that could
accurately reproduce the various signals across the required
operating frequency spectrum, within the average audiophile
budget, but respectable enough to compete against leads
many times more expensive. The next step was to incorporate
the features that makes up a reliable interconnect, and
to design out the features that have been proven to give
quality problems over a period of time.
this section of this site, you can learn about the inherent
behaviour of all interconnects, the principles behind the
design of our THOR AV Interconnects, and some of the factors
that influence how we build our products. Here is our formula
for building the perfect audio and video interconnectWe
have observed that complex "theoretical" interconnect designs
often measure and sound poorly. Our design methods reflect
our own research, aided by extensive customers feedback.
