Coils

Coils (also referred to as inductors) are inductive, i.e. they influence the current flowing through them by their own magnetic field. The physical unit of measure for inductivity [L] (Latin term: inductio = induce) is Henry [H] (in honour of the US-American physicist Joseph Henry). Coils consist of a wire wound around a core (ideally air).

Similar to capacitors, coils are frequency-dependent resistors. Their filter effect increases with increasing frequency allowing for the elimination of high frequencies (= high tones), i.e. the higher the inductivity, the lower the separating frequency.

Stereophony

Lowest tolerances of components used in the left and right signal path are fundamental for realistic and stereophonic (Greek stereos = spatial) music reproduction. Only if the characteristics of both channels are close to identical, each musician can be exactly allocated and an according spatial reproduction is possible.

Richness of detail

The conversion of mechanical into electrical vibrations is referred to as microphonic effect. This effect results in vibrations added to the electric music signal thus overlaying and alienating it. On the one hand, the transparency and stereophony of reproduction decreases, and on the other hand, distortions and tonal irritations increase significantly. Therefore, mechanically solid and vibration-damping components are a vital prerequisite for audiophile music reproduction.

Raw materials & processing

Lowest tolerances and highest mechanical stability can only be guarantied by using raw materials of highest quality and pureness, maximum accuracy regarding to controls as well as utmost precision and continuity in production. Furthermore, these characteristics which apply for all products made by MUNDORF ensure highest audio pleasure.
