KBL Sound is a result of decades of experience we did gain during period of being involved professionally in music production in studio recording, or during a real gig live or just experimenting with audio equipment at home. There was always a hunger for knowing and understanding more about it in the background and what to do to achieve more to get as close to the real thing as it is only possible.
Studying the nature of sound and serving technology for the best music playback we managed to complete our offer, always with a single goal in mind; whatever the price tag – to bring the best it can be. We hope that our customer’s feedback and awards received speak for their own, as do our cables.
In our understanding that the most important for creating the feeling of experiencing the live event are: openness and ability to play back down to the bottom whatever had been preserved on the tape. All those low level information which doesn’t create image itself, but contributes hugely to its complexity. Only with all that present the feeling of the real being there and neutrality can be achieved and the music becomes engaging spiritual experience. Often people are looking for different things in the sound not all of them are right or needed. Like obsessive hunting for the huge bass, increased resolution in trebles or unnatural precision. All that kills the realism of music if it is overdone. It is important to have it there in the mix but up to the certain degree. Other way the feeling of rightness is lost and we getting instead the bunch of exaggerated parts of the performance, but not the sense that we are listening to the music, as it all comes as a mechanical manipulation which might be attractive to some ones and even sometimes a fun to hear, but it doesn’t make us feeling we are a part of the real performance. It can also be lost during recording process more or less, depends on the quality of sound engineers, but it shouldn’t prevent us from trying to find it back.
That’s why in our mission for delivery the best playback possible we are always choosing the best components and most advanced western technologies, doesn’t matter as far as that helps us to make the best cables we can.
We can guarantee that using our cables and accessories in entire system, doesn’t matter the level, will bring immediate coherence and improvement. Our products are dedicated to mature music lovers who understand the nature of the sound by heart. This is a life affair, just as the music is itself. Those cables will bring you long lasting and satisfying results uncovering new layers of music fascination.
We are located in Warsaw, Poland.
The greater part of our products is hi-end audio cables. But to complement this offer we created a cost no object power strip and equally excellent vibration damping absorbers indispensable in every hi-end system.

What customers write about our products:
"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."
"Cables melted into the system excellent.[...] We have spotted that the soundstage dimensions grown noticeably as did the sound resolution if compared with previously used power cables. The background became more black as well. Bass became more meaty and better rounded without loosing on speed and control, what made playback more natural. The subjective feeling is that this cables make system sounding more musical and open. The cable alone, without the company’s power bar, focuses a bit more on hi frequencies in my system. Highs are more pronounced, though brighter, slightly more emphasised."
"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 ;)."

Latest review June 2015: FLUID power cable
"Plugging the cable in brings some kind of positive signature to the sound: it comes out more calm and relaxed, but on the top of all it is its organic feeling and sense of authenticity in sound what convinces me most. And this "something" always comes from most reliable designs only. It increases the sound energy, cleans and adds the color to the sound - makes it more complete and more in order. It lightens up details, reveals the tonal depth and makes image more transparent. 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
