Niangua cable products are designed and built in the USA. 

Osage Audio Products introduces the Niangua line of high performance audio cables.

An Idea In The Making
A couple of things have been true about audio cables for awhile now.  First, interconnects and loudspeaker cables that truly perform well are expensive, and there are always people popping up making the next “high-end” cables at a “price lower than the big name brands.”  Sometimes one or the other works out just fine for the consumer; sometimes it leaves the consumer with empty pockets and something really good, and sometimes it leaves the consumer with empty pockets and something that is no better than what they already had.

In early 2009 we began researching how we might be able to offer audio cables that perform in the class with what are considered excellent cables without having to charge high prices.  We started at square one with a clean sheet of paper and no preconceived ideas about what was what or how things should be done.

A Good Audio Cable Starts With The Wire
There is a lot of wire out there that has been used for audio cables.  Some of it is specifically designed by people who know what they are doing, and much of this ends up in relatively high-priced cables.  Some other cable builders use everything from extension cord wire to Cat5 computer wire. 

Obviously, our first move had to be to learn what properties and materials and design features should form the recipe for a good audio cable.  Since fudging our way through with something that we found in the electrical isle at the local hardware store was not an option for us, we had to find someone who could teach us what we needed to know.

Not All Wire Is The Same
One of the first things that we found out is that good wire for hi-fi cables is not created by someone in a dark room practicing some black art.  In nearly every instance it is designed, specified, and manufactured by real electrical engineers who work for companies that make all kinds of wire, including wiring harnesses for critical systems on the International Space Station, sensitive medical and life support systems, and lots of other things in our everyday world that have to work properly all the time. 

Come to find out, there’s really not any black art or hocus-pocus to designing electrical wire for specific purposes after all.  It’s science and physics.

Getting It Right
Having gotten that far in our education, we started asking questions – a lot of them.  Throughout the processes of design and manufacturing of the Niangua audio cables product line, we worked with electrical engineers, metallurgists, communications technicians, broadcast engineers, and a host of other specialist in their fields.  What we learned from these exceptional people has provided us with the knowledge that we need to help us reach our goal of building cables for your hi-fi that offer excellent performance and true value. 

Niangua audio cables are designed and built to provide ease of use, many years of service, and great sound.  We have chosen connectors for each product type that are well built and that work like they are supposed to. 

We settled on high purity copper conductors for use in Niangua audio cables.  High purity copper offers excellent performance for the price when utilized properly.  We’re happy to say that this high purity copper wire is made in the USA.

Our choices in other parts are based on value for the money.  The cable sleeves and shrink tubing are chosen for their durability and quality.

Our choices in construction methodology are based on intelligent design that will allow the cable to work properly, dress easily, and do so without the risk of connections and solder joints that crack or fail.

Our Niangua power cords utilize high grade, properly shielded electrical conductors and Wattgate connectors.  The design and execution is based on guidance from electrical engineers and also on exhaustive testing of various variation of power cord construction.  The result is a power cord that is not only effective in rejecting EMI and RFI, but one that also has the effect of “filtering” and removing such interference from the electricity passing through it.  This makes the Niangua power cord an effective upgrade for any audio or video system.

We have chosen simple but effective packaging to help keep costs as low as possible.  Paying $50.00 or more for a jewelry box doesn’t make the cable inside it perform any better.

We invite you to try Niangua by Osage Audio Products cables in your system.  We think that you will like them.

PLEASE NOTE – We can build Niangua audio cable in any length that you need.  The lengths show are our standard lengths.  We can also substitute for the standard connectors with just about anything on the market that you desire, including models from WBT, Kimber Kable, Cardas, and Dayton.  If you would like anything that deviates from our standard models, please call or email us.

“Returning to my opening remarks, what ultimately then makes the Niangua cables exceptional is their price. They cost one-half to one-third of what the comparison cables cost. This makes them an incredible value for cables of their sonic quality.”

“I had some fairly expensive cables in my system before I was convinced to try the Niangua cables.  I tried their interconnect cables, speaker cables, and power cords and I was blown away by how much cleaner and powerful the sound was in my system.  I sold all of my cables in my system and replaced them with the Niangua cables.  I even had enough money left over to buy a new Clearaudio turntable from Osage Audio Products.”

  - Niangua Customer Carl in California

 

“Before I tried the [Niangua] speaker wires I had been using ***** that I paid about $2000.00 for an eight foot pair.  I can’t believe how much better the detail in my system is since I changed over to the Nianguas.”

- Niangua Customer Richard in Texas

 

“So I always thought that you had to spend some money to get some good IC cables.  After going through several different ones I tried out the Niangua cables.  I paid only $225.00 per set of them and they gave my system better resolution, better bass, and just better sound all around than the others I have that cost $500.00 or more for a set.”

- Niangua Customer RWS in Massachusetts

 

“It seems like there are new brands of stereo cables out every week.  I have bought a lot of those that cost from $100.00 to $1000.00 per one meter pair.  The Niangua cables are not the least expensive that I have bought, but they are by all means the best I have bought at any price.”

- Niangua Customer Ben in Pennsylvania

 

“A lot of guys have been talking about ***** cables on [an audio forum].  I tried them out on demo, but they are not nearly as good in my system as the Niangua interconnects.  The Niangua cables cost less too.”

- Niangua Customer Peter in New York

 

“Over the past 20 years I have probably spent over $15,000.00 on cabling for my high end system.  I have changed cables a number of times and I have never been completely satisfied with the results.  On a whim I tried a pair of Niangua interconnects.  I really liked them so I tried a pair of their loudspeaker cables as well.  They handily outperformed the cables that they replaced.  I now have all Niangua cable in my system.  I couldn’t be happier with the results.  They improved the bass and the resolution of my system, and the sound is more satisfying than ever.

Thank you Niangua!”

- Niangua Customer David in Colorado

 

“There sure are a lot of audio cables to choose from out there today.  It gets pretty confusing as to what is what.  Since I was already doing business with Osage Audio Products, when I decided to buy some new interconnects I tried their Niangua interconnects.  They really allowed the clarity and soundstaging that my system is capable of to come through.  I’m so satisfied with the upgrade that I got that I don’t need to try anything else.”

- Niangua Customer AJ in Missouri

 

“These Niangua cables are a screaming bargain!  I don’t see why I would ever try anything else.”

- Niangua Customer Burt in New York

 

“If anyone would have told me that you could get interconnects of this performance level for less than $1000.00 I would have called them a liar.  I’m foolish for not trying them sooner.”

- Niangua Customer Jack in Minnesota

 

“They have learned some special things at Osage Audio about how to design RCA cables to work best.  I decide to take a chance on them and I must say how delighted I am with them.  I plan to buy some more in the future.”

- Niangua Customer Leif in Denmark

 

“Osage Audio is onto something good with their Niangua cables.  I have been replacing the interconnect cables in my system with theirs, and I am amazed at the performance that I get for the price.  I have been able to sell all of my used interconnects so far for more money than I am paying for the Niangua interconnects also.”

- Niangua Customer Terry in California

 

“No snake oil here.  Just good improvement for the money I spent.”

- Niangua Customer Bob in Oregon

 

“This is the best money I’ve spent on improving the performance of my system.  I can recommend the Niangua interconnects and speaker cables without hesitation.”

- Niangua Customer Gary in New York

 

“With all of the information out there it is confusing to know which audio cables to buy.  I say avoid the confusion and buy the Niangua audio cables.  I did and now I am done shopping.”

- Niangua Customer PD in New York

 

“Thank you Osage Audio for bringing the Niangua cables to market.”

- Niangua Customer Gerald in New Jersey

 

“I have tried many different brands of power cords in my system.  I think the Niangua power cords have lowered the noise floor in my system and the retrieval of fine detail has improved.”

- Niangua Customer Ted in New York

 

“If I ever need any more cables for my hi-fi system I won’t need to shop around.  The Niangua cables fill my needs perfectly.”

- Niangua Customer Fernando in California

 

“These are great speaker cables and I can afford them!”

                                                                                                - Niangua Customer Will in Ohio

 

“The service that I get at Osage Audio is great and their advice on cables for my system was right on the mark.  It’s not every day that you can find a company that has such good service.  I really like my Niangua interconnect and I can recommend then to others.”

- Niangua Customer Tim in Tennessee

 

“I was ready to sell off my system and buy a new one that was a step up on performance.  I tried the Niangua cables in my system instead.  I got a big upgrade in performance without spending as much money or going to as much trouble.”

- Niangua Customer Dennis in Michigan

 

“These really are good speaker cables and ICs.  I can recommend them both without reservation.”

- Niangua Customer Jerrold in Pennsylvania

 

“Any audiophile who has not tried the Niangua products is missing out.  They are one of the audiophile bargains.”

- Niangua Customer Richard in California

 

“The Niangua speaker cables really improved the bass performance of my system.  I no longer have just a boomy sound.  Now I have music instead.”

- Niangua Customer Zachary in Florida

 

“These are really great stereo cables at a great price.  Everyone really needs to give them a try to see how they work in their system.”

- Niangua Customer Michael in Wisconsin

 

“I tried two other interconnects through tours on [an audio forum] and I thought they were pretty good, but when I tried the Niangua interconnects I knew which ones I would put in my system.  I can recommend the Niangua interconnects to anyone who wants top performance at a reasonable price.”

- Niangua Customer P in California

 

“A friend loaned me his Niangua power cord.  I’ve always been skeptical of power cords making any difference, but I have to admit that I heard an improvement in resolution and dynamics with the Niangua.  I have since bought one for myself.”

- Niangua Customer Kevin in New Jersey

 

“Everybody, you need to try the Niangua audio cables.  They are the best upgrade that I have made to my system.”

                                                                              - Niangua Customer Guillermo in New York

 

“It was a pleasure working with Osage Audio when it came time to try some new interconnects in my system.  Their knowledge and straightforward answers were refreshing.  I tried their Niangua interconnects and thought that the level of performance was well worth the price.  I am now a satisfied customer.”

- Niangua Customer Leonard in Delaware

 

“I found the honest attitude and helpful nature to be refreshing.  The Niangua cables are winners in my book and I can easily recommend them to anyone in the market.”

- Niangua Customer Mark in Colorado

 

“These speaker cables are much more open and detailed sounding than the ***** speaker cables that I have used for the past few years.  I’ll be telling my friends about Niangua speaker cables.”

- Niangua Customer Sean in California

 

“Finally, some interconnects that I can afford that actually improve the sound of my system.”

- Niangua Customer Roger in New Jersey

 

“I’m the proud owner of a Niangua phono cable and I recommend trying Niangua cables before buying anything else.”

- Niangua Customer Norman in New York

 

“I am now using a Niangua 11 gauge power cord on my Bryston DAC.  The improvement in lowered noise floor is so profound compared to that of the ***** power cord that I was using before that I still shake my head in disbelief.  I recommend Niangua power cords to anyone who is looking for improved performance from their system.”

- Niangua Customer Victor in Michigan

 

“After having chased the audio cable thing for several years, I finally tried some Niangua interconnect cables, and now the chase is over.  I have since rewired my whole system with Niangua cables and I could not be any happier.”

- Niangua Customer Carla in Connecticut

 

“I’ve used the famous ***** phono interconnect for many years in my main system.  I needed a phono cable for a new system in my winter condo, so I thought I would give the Niangua phono cable a try.  I decided to put it in my main system to break it in before taking it south for the winter.  It is so good that I ended up buying another one for my main system.”

- Niangua Customer Charles in Missouri

 

“I’ve tried just about every interconnect on the market that is under $500.00.  The Niangua interconnects are clearly better in every way than all of the rest.”

- Niangua Customer Fred in California

 

“I have to say that the Niangua speaker cables are the best that I have tried in my system.”

- Niangua Customer Jonathan in Utah
