KBL Sound is a result of decades of experience gained while being involved professionally in music production in studio recording, or during a real gig live or just experimenting with audio equipment at home. Lying behind this was always a passion for a deeper knowledge and understanding about how to reproduce the original sound as close as possible.
Through many years of individual research, experimentation and constant improvements for the best music playback we have managed to complete our offer, always with a single goal in mind; whatever the price tag – to provide the best it can be. We hope that our customer’s feedback, audio magazines reviews and the various awards received speak for themselves.
Our products are also used as components of the reference systems by reviewers and in recording studios. At the same time our products in every price segment are compared with several times more expensive, so we suggest that assemble them with devices of higher quality than would indicate the price.
KBL Sound addresses offer to these sensitive listeners who seek uncompromising, realistic presentation of recordings and want to enjoy its effects for many years to come. The confirmation of our achievements is a phrase from a recent review of our cables: "With them music becomes a complete event." That is what we are constantly striving and what all music lovers want.
The greater part of our products is hi-end audio cables. To complete this offer we have created a cost-no-object power strip and equally excellent vibration-damping absorbers indispensable in every hi-end system.
Proudly and with great pleasure we can announce that the whole series of cables Zodiac was honored with the Award Best Product of the Year 2016 by the magazine High Fidelity. This series includes interconnects, speaker cables and power cables.

In order to meet the needs of even the most radical purists in hi-end audio, KBL Sound has expanded its offer with a new version of their flagship cable: Himalaya PRO. Our company took in our hands the distribution of products well-known American brand Bybee Technologies. Under this name they hide unusual products on the borderline of quantum physics and nanotechnology. The small size of passive components included in the signal path, regulate the flow of electrons, reducing noise and disturbance. Thus significantly improve the performance and make it more sophisticated. Some of these products will be applied to our own cables. On the basis of this a new version of the flagship cables was created: Himalaya PRO. This option applies to all types of cable offered so far in this series, with the exception of the power cables.
Best Buy for the series Red Eye Ultimate
Quantum Power Enhancer (seria Crystal)
Based on the original Quantum Bybee Purifiers KBL Sound has developed its own product - Quantum Power Enhancer - a device which is de facto a small passive power conditioner. You can use it to any audio device or video, or power strip.

New KBL Sound products:
October 2016: Himalaya interconnects and Power Cable
"In the reference system Himalaya AC proved to be a hit. Without it would be incomplete, so it has stay. [...] The sound became fulfilled, and gained more than before bass solidity. It retained contours, but gained freedom, so in bass and in space. It became more abundant, more saturated, but not greasy. It became more weighty, while maintaining flawless sculpture." Hi-Fi i Muzyka
September 2016: Himalaya PRO Digital Cable
"It is detailed and accurate. By including it in a top system, we retain good presentation, rhythmicity and details. There is no chaos or disorder. At the same time, the cable produces smooth and nice sound, focusing our attention on direct sounds, and frees us from the necessity to constantly analyze what we hear." High Fidelity
August 2016: Fluid Power Cable
"Fluid sounds balanced, organic and analogue, but does not neglect those aspects of the presentation like transparency, space and dynamics. It is characterized by a slight warming sound, which can show itself in many systems - especially those whose sound too much twisted toward the technical correctness and accuracy. Very pleasant to listen." StereoLife
July 2016: Red Eye Ultimate series (interconnects, speaker cable, power cable)
"Those who would like to have: A - excellent cables that can push their systems to the last limits, B - who are not afraid, but rather want to have a great Polish products, should be tested as soon as possible (preferably set) Red Eye Ultimate at home. And after buying forget about the topic of cables possibly forever." Hi-Fi Choice 7-8 /2016
May 2016: Zodiac Series
"Zodiac line offers certain qualities, certain sonic character. What they have to offer is highly sought by experienced audiophiles." High Fidelity
Speaker cable Zodiac
"Zodiac is indeed great, really enjoyable speaker cable. It offers a very high quality of the extremes of the frequency spectrum, especially the tweeter. It also does not lacks dynamism and tonal bloom. In the field of stereo image is almost a champion. The Zodiac is a must for the listening sessions, if you are looking for a speaker cable in a similar or even higher price." Audio Video
"In my opinion KBL Himalaya are remarkable products! I believe that these could go toe-to-toe with best cables made by renown competitors and probably win at least some of such contests proving that one doesn’t have to spend a (big) fortune on cables for ultimate performance, but that a much smaller one could be enough." Hifi Knights
March 2016: Red Eye Ultimate Interconnects
"These are excellent cables and should certainly be auditioned if you are spending this sort of cash (£1750)." Hifi Pig
"I can honestly tell you, that it is a remarkable product […] Since that's the least expensive model in KBL Sound's line up, imagine how the others sound like?! Anyway, you can just go ahead and buy Fluid, I can't image it being a wrong move..." Audio Video
January 2016: Himalaya Power Cable
" It's a really well balanced cable offering great performance you can rely on." High Fidelity
October 2015: Zodiac interconnects
"This is very genuine interconnect for well seasoned aficionados." StereoLife
"Exceptionally musical and sophisticated. Superb stereophony with impressive depth and size of individual virtual sources. Tonally balanced."
November 2015: Signature Series Himalaya (IC + speaker cables)
"Performance of Polish cables is excellent, refined. It reminded me of the most expensive models of Siltech—from both Double and Triple Crown lines. With them music becomes a complete event. [...] These are excellent cables. The simple fact that I had to use a few times more expensive cables as my reference to describe how they work, speaks for itself. Positive Feedback Issue 81
September 2015: Signature Series Himalaya (IC + speaker cable)
These are one of the best cables I've ever heard - only Siltech (interconnects and speaker cables) and Tara Labs (speaker cables only) are capable to bring a bit more to the table. Except those, all other, no matter how good they are, have simply no go."
July 2015: Series Red Eye Ultimate (IC, speaker and power cables)
"In comparison to world market prices, these speaker cables and interconnects are bargains in relation to performance. Well-known brands at this level of performance often seem to count for more while many of their offers do not reach the quality of The Ultimate." Hi-Fi & Music
July 2015: Zodiac power cable
"The Zodiac Model can be included among the group of power cables that have only a subtle influence on the quality of the sound system, while simultaneously enabling the system to reach its full potential." Hi-Fi Choice
June 2015: FLUID power cable
"KBL Sound Fluid is a power cord that has it all. And the best is that its superior performance ratio comes with equally great market price. I would recommend to anyone to listen to it !" stereo i kolorowo
"I conducted an intense, whole day test of these top of the line cables Himalaya. I have to admit that I am impressed. In my ultra-resolving system most of them provided great performance. An interesting fact – while comparing these cables with other high quality ones, the digital Himalaya stood particularly out. It delivered better (more all-round) performance than top Acrolink 7N-AD6100 or second from the top Siltech. It didn't fall behind Audio Note cables either despite the fact that Peter Q's black Pallas or PDA Luminist are damn good cables. Himalaya interconnects also didn't let my own cables (Tara Labs Zero Gold, PAD Luminist) to outperform them."
"I have a pleasure to own Hologram interconnects and Spectre power cord from KBL Sound. I have to confess that when I asked for a loan it was more an intention to fulfil my curiosity than to make a purchase, why not if you having a chance of doing it ;) However things turned upside down – these cables are really fantastic. Hologram sounds in fact very similar to Harmonics 101gp, and that puts a bar really high given competitor’s well established reputation.""KBL’s Red Eye cables is a range of products, which are very difficult to make a decision to return once removed from your system. They work equally well in the company of tube as well as a solid state gear. Their main skill is that they are presenting entire frequency range in the most unforced way I heard and without any coloration."
"I have no idea what are manufacturing these cables from, but there is some magic there :) After connecting your Red Eye power cable between my Oyaide power bar (with Oyaide cable to the wall) bass became nice and crisp – what a spectacular difference ! Speaker cables didn’t make significant different on bass, but it is not needed in my system. What they did however, they somehow managed to filter this transistor harsh feeling, making music more... musical. All became more natural, without any loss or compromise ;) The changes are not subtle, they are evident. There is no need for further listening tests, it remains only to listen :)"
"The Red Eye is an outstanding cable and can be compared with the best rivals on the market, even those more expensive. Overall impression is that the sound has been cleaned from the distortion. The calm down and the culture, black background. Very high resolution of the cable translates into deep spatial presentation with great micro-details. The reverb aura is rich and tonally multitude. As a result after a week of listening I decided that the cable is here to stay with me and I bought it :) Red Eye replaced AudioQuest SKY in my system.
Out of curiosity I also took a loan of the Red Eye power cord and bar [Reference Power Distributor]. Overall impressions were very positive. Power cable represents exactly the same very high level of precision, culture sound with multitude of colours and beautifully rendered micro details. Even if my MIT Oracle AC3 with the Furutech plugs didn’t come from no where it’s clearly not in the same league as KBLs ;)."
