International Audio Holding BV (IAH) Product Philosophy

IAH Systems Engineering is best known for its ground-breaking cable designs. After all, the company pretty much invented high-end cables with the original Siltech line – and then redefined high-end cable performance with Crystal Cable. For almost four decades, we have set the performance standards that other cable brands have struggled to match.

But all of that accumulated experience and knowledge is transferable. If designing a cable is about analysing the structure of its system and placing it in the wider system beyond that; if realising that design is about the sourcing and application of materials and technology, then those skills can be applied to other products, especially those products that are an extension of the cable system itself. The performance parameters and concerns are the same – and so is a lot of the technology – whether you are talking about amplification or loudspeakers.

Our unparalleled experience and accumulated knowledge has been applied far beyond the field of audio cables. We have brought the same innovative approach to design, the same introduction of novel technologies, the same exacting engineering approach and the same deft balancing of sonic and musical attributes to achieve the same unprecedented standards of performance when it comes to high-end amplification and loudspeakers .

In fact, our SAGA/Crystal/Arabesque system has been widely recognized by leading audio commentators as one of the best performing, most technically impressive and complete system solutions ever created. us? We are just happy to enjoy the astonishing musical performances it recreates – performances that are only possible because of our holistic, total system, engineering approach.
