Kubala-Sosna Achieves Realization
Seen here holding the cables is their usually unseen chief designer, Howard Sosna. Howard is an oral maxillofacial surgeon who performs his "day job" 65 hours per week, and designs cables at 2am and on Sundays. Someone who's been involved in audio all his life, he started Kubala-Sosna with Joe Kubala in 20022003.
"We changed the recipe slightly," Howard said of the cable's change of geometry, material, shielding, and stranding. "What is more significant than the materials themselves is what you do with them. Each of our cables has a similar tonal response. Performance expands as we go up the line. That means more extension and delicacy on top, and a wider and deeper soundstage. Our Elation line was so good that it took us eight years to come up with Realization. I had to do a lot of rethinking of what we do."
