KORDZ® is a relative newcomer to the AV interconnect market. Founded in Australia in 2003 by David Meyer, a lifetime audio and home cinema enthusiast, it embraces what many brands seem to increasingly overlook – the fundamental and unchangeable laws of physics. The principle design of every KORDZ® cable extends to the harnessing of these ‘laws’ for best performance, achievable through intelligent cable geometry and construction, using only the best of materials. The result is unquestionable value for money.
All KORDZ® cables are exclusively designed in Australia. The offshore KORDZ® factory maintains the highest standard of quality control, from material selection to the production process, and final product presentation. For example, all KORDZ® cables go through a process of copper extrusion which ensures a thorough drying of the purified H2O (as used to rinse and fast-cool the extruded OFC) prior to dielectric encasing or silver plating. For more information or to become an authorized dealer, please call Michael Schaller at 408-656-6090 or visit www.kordz.com.
