Middleton, WI - In the fall of 2006, Vu purchased the trademark and remaining inventory of Cable-up brand cables from the Teac Corporation. During the ensuing months, research was conducted to determine the most effective method of manufacturing. Officials at Vu determined the only way quality can be assured is by inspecting on-site and making the cables by hand in America.
At the AES convention in New York, Oct. 5-8, 2007, Vu reintroduced Cable-Up to the world. Features of the new Cable-Up cables include maximum flexibility at low temperatures, ruggedness with maximum flex life and abrasion resistance, high purity OFC copper with a high strand count, low capacitance for extended high frequency response and enhanced stability for power amplifiers and active microphones. The line includes:
- MIC-DP: AES/EBU-capable high-speed microphone cable rugged enough for touring sound yet refined enough for day-to-day studio applications.
- MIC-D: Digital AES/EUB high-speed microphone and studio cable.
- MIC-AN: Neoprene-jacketed, low-capacitance, ultra flexible and rugged microphone cable.
- SPK-NEO: Speaker cables that combine the ruggedness of a vulcanized rubber Neoprene jacket, and 12 AWG OFC copper for maximum flexibility.
