The Company

Heavens Gate Audio is regarded as one of the finest manufacturer for high-performance audio cables. That reputation did not come easily – it took more than 20 years of research and attention to even the smallest details.
The company was founded back in 1994 in Dusseldorf and moved to Krefeld in 2001 – a beautiful city close to the river Rhine in the western part of Germany.
From the beginning our focus was always on researching the effects of different conductor materials, insulations and construction alignments.
Most of the existing measurement techniques are still unable to explain the audible differences, so our design process is accompanied by countless hours of critical listening.

Today Heavens Gate Audio is one of the leading companies in the world when it comes to high technology cable systems for accurate music recordings.
Heavens Gate Audio also offers a series of audio cables for the most demanding music lovers.

Connecting two audio components using one of our products is always a step into the right direction:
Performance without limitations.

Our Philosophy

Heavens Gate Audio was founded on the simple philosophy that cables should deliver the full resolution of recorded music.
Noise, in a cable, can and will affect the audio frequency range and interfere with the original signal. The most common noise, Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), affects a cable directly in the audio range. RFI presents itself as hiss, commercial radio broadcasts, intercom broadcasts, or any other radio signal broadcast in the audible range.
Another source of noise is Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). Whenever electricity passes through a wire, it produces inductance that creates an electromagnetic field. Because EMI manifests itself at a high frequency, it is commonly believed not to interfere with the audible range of frequencies.
However, all frequencies demonstrate harmonic structures. Even if the cause of EMI is outside the audible range, the upper and lower harmonics of a given frequency often present themselves within the audible range. At the very least, EMI causes degradation of audio frequencies.
Our unique shielding technologies create the renown Heavens Gate Audio performance.
Every Heavens Gate Audio cable employs the circuitry of a Passive Frequency Inductance Network combined with hand-made construction and unconventional use of different shielding materials.
The higher the series of the product, the more sophisticated the network circuitry becomes.
Unique wire-weave patterns and the use of the finest materials available contribute further to the world-renowned Heavens Gate Audio sound.



Q: Is it possible to change the length of a Heavens Gate Audio cable if needed?
A: Unfortunately not. Each cable is made by hand for the length that was ordered. It is not possible to make a cable shorter without loosing its performance values.

Q: Is it possible to change the termination of a cable - i.e. from RCA to XLR
A: As for Digital Links the impedance matching of the cable is very important. We can change from RCA to BNC because both versions are for 75 Ohm applications. But NOT to XLR as the cable's impedance characteristic is set for 110 Ohm.
