Nashville, TN (October 15, 2015)—Sommer Cable has become the newest Pro Partner of The METAlliance (Music Engineering & Technology Alliance) organization.
The METAlliance is a group of globally-recognized, award-winning audio engineers and producers who have been deeply involved in establishing techniques and technical standards that are the foundation of modern music recording. The METAlliance founders are Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Elliot Scheiner, Al Schmitt, and the late Phil Ramone. Pro Partner membership is limited to companies that have shown the ability to manufacture and distribute products that meet the organization’s professional audio qualifications.
Cherney commented, “I’ve never seen such quality, such strength of connectors, and such attention to detail with cables before. When I started testing them out, I could tell these guys were really fanatics about their design and manufacture. I appreciate that, because a lot of times the thing that goes bad in the studio is the cable. With Sommer cables, I am confident that that will never happen.”
Filipetti added, “I’ve been using the Sommer AES digital cables for several weeks now. After putting them through my testing boot camp, they ended up replacing my very high-end digital cables, which to be honest, cost nearly three times as much. What freaked me out was not that they were sonically better than anything else I had here at my studio, The Living Room, but how much better. There really was no comparison. Even more surprising was how amazing the digital AES cables sounded carrying analog signals. Finally a “one cable does all.’”
Martin Ucik, CEO of Sommer Cable America, commented, “Sommer Cable is excited to be associated with this legendary group of engineers and producers. The METAlliance Pro Partnership recognition validates the incredible amount of effort we put into our products.”
