5. Some people claims that Heavens Gate Audio copies the design of NBS, what's the truth?

Sorry to say, but this is pure nonsense!

If you regard putting a connector on each side of one or more conductors as a copy, the answer would be yes - but then, all cable manufacturers are copying the design of another one...

This rumour started at the beginning of Heavens Gate Audio back in 1994. Heavens Gate Audio's chief designer Christoph Kraemer worked for a high-end audio distributor before. This company distributes brands like Avalon Acoustics, Grado, MIT, Threshold and NBS.

NBS uses copper conductors and tinned copper shields on all of their products, something that has never been used by Heavens Gate Audio.
