There’s no connection implied between their position on the floor in the photo above and their status as Stage III Concepts’ new entry-level offerings: The Stage III Concepts Kyros interconnect ($1800/1m RCA pair, $1900/1m balanced pair) and speaker cable ($4400/2m pair) feature proprietary cryogenically treated Hyperion connectors with silver contacts and ceramic-infused polymer insulators. Also boasting four cryogenically treated continuous-cast pure-silver “Aerostrand” ribbon conductors and proprietary shielding, the Kyros products are scaled-down versions of the company’s more expensive cabling.
