Tributaries Cable
Tributaries was founded in 1991 based on the concept of "High Performance Audio and Video Cable Designs Based in Science." Back then, this was considered extremely radical. Then, as today, many audio and video cable companies, using exotic materials (and sometimes just plain whacky) design configurations, describe their product's performance with marketing hype masquerading as scientific fact. If you know the principles of conductance, capacitance etcetera, sometimes this can make for very amusing reading! This atmosphere of misinformation convinced our founder, Joe Cable that it was time to start a cable company whose products would be designed based on good scientific principles, good service and good sense.
