MIT Cables - Message from VP Kent Loughlin

A MESSAGE FROM KENT LOUGHLIN - VP, MIT CABLES
 
Today, I held in my hands the first production version of the Vero HCA 29 Circuit board. It looked both beautiful and purposeful, with the battery packs mounted firmly in place. This is the heart of the device and looks like a product that is built to last a lifetime. This week and next, we will go on to build a few pre-production units to listen to as we finish the front end control board with the mounting of the outputs. The faceplate is coming along nicely as we figure the best ways to carry the connection points. First samples are proving to be excellent choices so no time is being lost.

 

We've come a long way! 

 

  

Bruce listening to the first HCA20 Circuit Board (Pre-Campaign)                        Prototypes ranging from 29 poles to 50 poles 

 

 
As we move forward in our R&D, and take into consideration that the Vero HCA 29 may be more in line as a higher performance amp and more suitable for a high-end user, we decided to build a prototype that is considered our “reference” version of the original, housing 50 poles of articulation. This would be inline with the actual product we would release to market, and it is blowing our socks off!
 
As we included a reference version of our Vero Full Range Headphone cable in our last campaign, we can also do the same with the Vero HCA headphone amp, and are definitely considering it. Providing the Vero HCA 50 or Vero HCA 60 model for three or four hundred dollars more would be offering MORE PERFORMANCE THAN EVER. If this is of interest to you, we want to know about it. 

We also realize that the product may be out of your current budget, and have been approached by a few interested individuals to offer installment payments. We have now added three additional perks that are "Deposits" on our three original Secret Perks.

Are there any long range plans to make a "balanced" amp?

I may jump in on this since I am intrigued by the thought of a reference version plus I want a reference cable for my HD800.
