TMC White Label

Due to family illness, I need to return to Hong Kong to look after my mum.

I have decided to take TMC off-line temporarily.

Customers, old and new, are welcome to keep in touch,

and I will answer their emails promptly,

and will let you all know when we re-open again in the near future.

Thankyou for all the supports over the years, and your understanding for the moment.

Enjoy the music with TMC!!

Welcome


Our name says it all:   TMC = the-music-cable = Truly Musical cable

Our company is new (we just turned 7 years old), but our passion and obsession with music is not.

We are a small company, and will remain so, as we have no intention of going into the mass market.

Our cables are designed to carry your music signal while preserving the signal integrity, hence the musical quality. Unlike most other commercial Hi Fi cables that are designed for the "market", our cables are designed for our musical enjoyments which we would like to share with you.

There is no "Entry level", then up-grade, then further up-grade with our cable system.

We offer only the best reference cables for your modern day Hi Fi, Home Audio, and theater system  applications.



TMC Truly balanced XLR/XLR interconnects


TMC Gold Label Reference Speaker Cable


We believe and understand that our ears are very sensitive to and very easily fatigued by musical distortions due to "skin-effects",  and distortions due to "intermodulation".

We eliminate these distortions by sound fundamental cable designs, instead of coming up with new snake oils (new models, new break throughs...you name it) from time to time.

With solid copper shielding, our cables also offer the best shielding from nowadays intensifying storms of EMI and RFI interferences. This has become especially a more and more important consideration for systems in the densely populated busy cities.

By design, we offer one of the best (if not the best) Hi Fi cable system for modern day use.

With our cables in your system, noises that you don't even notice before, together with some of the distortions that you used to blame your amps or your speakers for, will be gone.


As much as we want to share distortions free music
with you from your system, at the same time we promise that there will be  No gimmicks, no consumer psychology... here in this site to color your judgment and choice of cables for your system - for we refuse to engage (employ!) professionals to write reviews for our cables, not even in the name of sales!!

Instead we choose, from our day one, to rely only on feedbacks from our paying customers to promote and improve our products.

Patiently, we have built up a good archive of testimonials and reviews over the years.

We hope you will find these testimonials and reviews interesting and helpful as one of our customers put it"Its really refreshing to have people talking about the quality of the music rather than the technical aspects of the sound.."

More importantly, together with our 45 days full money back guarantee, we hope that you will take up our invitation to enjoy our cables?(with music of course!!) in the comfort of your own home and with your own system, and let your own ears and heart be the critics.

TMC Gold Label with optional Eichmann Bayonet Plugs


TMC gold plated, teflon insulated quality locking RCA plugs
                          < and TMC speaker jumper




Be warned:
the use of our cables to listen to music can be addictive.


And if you do not have the time, please do not switch these cables on as you will be late for your next appointment!!

 

We believe with the modern day huge increase in the use of telecommunications and electronic equipments, we need the best shielding to protect our music signals from these intensifying storms of EMI and RFI interferences. Older designs of Hi Fi cable shielding method may fast become inadequate in providing the kind of protection needed nowadays, especially in the densely populated busy cities. 

We need the best shielding than ever before, for all our interconnects and speaker cables.

Solid copper shielding offers the best EMI and RFI shielding. Precision made locking type plug offers the best grounding - together these designs protect the music from outside interferences and provide a solid "ground" for the music to dance on (instead of a "ground" that dances along with the music which spells distortions to your music and your ears!!).

We also believe and understand that our ears are very sensitive to and very easily fatigued by musical distortions due to "skin-effects",  and distortions due to "intermodulation".

We eliminate these distortions by sound fundamental cable designs, instead of coming up with new snake oils (new models, new break throughs...you name it) from time to time.

To eliminate musical distortion due to "skin-effects":

TMC Cables use a single thin copper tubing riding on an aluminum rod as the center conductor.

The aluminum is used mainly as a support, and is relatively non-conductive to the musical signal in this application.

This design forces most, if not all, of the music signal to flow along the thin layer of copper tubing, thereby eliminates distortion due to "skin-effects" to your music signal.

To eliminate distortions due to "intermodulation":

TMC  Cables use a corrugated solid copper tubing (not mesh) as the outer conductor.

The outer conductor is bonded to the center conductor by quality foam-air dielectric to eliminate relative movements between conductors.

And no part of the conductor is exposed (except for soldering for termination) for degradation by oxidation.

These designs eliminate musical distortions due to intermodulation and degradation by oxidation associated with mesh shielding.

With this "Concentric twin- tubes conductors design", TMC offers one of the best (if not the best) Hi Fi cable system for modern day use.

Noises that you don't even notice before, together with distortions that you used to blame your amp or your speaker for, will be gone.

Please go to our products pages for details. You will find these cables very quiet, very precise, very neutral, with extremely detailed and real sound stage.

With our 45-days full money back guarantee, we invite you to experience the joy of using our cables in the comfort of your own home and with your own system. And let your ears and hearts be the critics.

Please also note that our cables are considered a bit "stiff" compared to most other commercial Hi Fi cables. Please click here for details and facts about handling and installation of "stiff" Hi Fi cables.

Our cables put the life back into the music. 

They impart no listening fatigue, that is why we say this from our own experience....... 

 “If you don’t have the time, don’t switch these cables on , or you will be late for your next appointment.” 

Please see what our customers say about our cables....

Is the cable directional?
The design of the cable is not directional. But to keep the beneficial effects of burn-in, the cable is marked with an arrow (see the lightening strike under the TMC logo) indicating the flow of the music signal.
 

·         Is the cable stiff?
The cable can be considered stiff when compared to most other commercially available Hi Fi cables, but the cable is very manageable.

"Stiffness" in Hi Fi cable is only a psychological problem.

At worst it takes about 5 extra minutes to get used to during installation at some tight spots.

Please click here for more information on how to bend, handle and install "stiff" cable.

Follow the simple steps below; take a little time to connect the cable, then sit back and enjoy the music with TMC like you have never before.

Please note:  “Remember to remove the cable before you shift the equipment around.”
 

  • How do you install the cables with locking type RCA plugs?
     
    1. Out of the box, gently straighten the cable into a more manageable general shape to work with. 
       
    2. Bend and shape the cable into position, with the RCA plugs pointing square and straight at the RCA sockets. 
       
    3. Please click here for more information on how to bend "stiff" cable.
       
    4. Turn the barrels (with color code rings) of the plugs anti-clockwise to loosen and un-lock the plugs just enough that the plugs can be pushed fully into the socket. 
       
    5. Plug in one side of the cable. Make sure the plug is pushed all the way into the socket.
       
    6. Now carefully re-shape the cable so that the other RCA plug can go straight into the other socket without much strain from the cable.
       
    7. Turn the barrels (one by one) clockwise to lock the plugs onto the socket.

      Push the plug further into the socket, every 1/2 turn of the barrel while locking down, or as soon as you can see a gap between the tip of the barrel and the socket, before further tightening. 

      The final lock down should not take more than 1/4 turn of the barrel, and the tip of the barrel should be almost touching the socket.

             8.    Please do not hesitate to contact us should you still have question and problem with installation of our cables.


Important:    Remember to remove the cable before you shift the equipment around.

                   Always remember to loosen the barrel to unlock the plug before trying to remove the cable.
