The flagship product Lacorde Statement Speaker sets the ultimate benchmark for loudspeaker cables

After a research time of over 10 years with thousands of listening hours of countless carefully evaluated variations and combinations of different conductor materials, conductor alloy materials, dielectric isolation materials, specific geometries, specific resonance control devices, cable treatments (cryogenic processing, heat processing, …), connectors, connection methods, … we developed our world wide unique benchmark cable series Lacorde Statement which we think is the best you will ever hear!

Our top notch supreme reference cables of the Lacorde Statement series provides staggering, unprecedented levels of performance in any aspects and have the ability to connect you to the real recording place like no other cable in the world.

These new heights of realistic listening experiences are only possible through our own proprietary technologies which are explained below. Of course we also developed additional technologies on which all our cables of the Lacorde Statement series are based. Only to name a few: The ideal conductor geometry, The ideal conductor dielectric, The prevention of electrostatic charging and the effects hereby, the ideal connector types, the ideal contact between the connector part and the conductor, …

One thing is without any doubt:
The most coherent and natural cables could only be developed and produced by a company that developed and produce the most coherent and natural loudspeaker - the Göbel Carbon Excellence Bending Wave loudspeaker!

Reviewer Statements


I have not previously experienced such a coherent, completely seamless coverage of the entire frequency range!

Dirk Sommer “Hifistatement”

"The saxophone on a jazz recording was larger than life!"

Jim Clements "hometheaterhifi.com"

"The sound quality was staggering."

Martin Mertens "fairaudio"

"Digital sounded as resolved and easygoing as great analog, the highs remaining pure, the lows resolving to the very depths of the recording -- impressive stuff …"

Marc Mickelson "The Audio Beat"

"I know of no other speaker that plays music with such homogeneity."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"For the first time in show memory I just sat and listened for fun, to cut after cut."

Jonathan Valin "the absolute sound"

"The sound was captivating. The speed and dynamics of this system were mesmerizing."

Steve Marsh "6moons"

"The Lacorde Statement cables are the best cables I have ever heard with my system."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"I was so impressed I went back on Sunday to confirm what I heard, and yes, these just might be the most realistic speakers on the planet!"

"Audiokarma"

The Göbel Epoque with its unique bending wave driver covering a frequency range from 180 Hz to 31.000 Hz sounded detailed and extraordinary coherent."

Peter Breuninger "AVshowrooms"

"Another specialty of the Epoque Fine is its thrilling, yet unspectacular fine dynamics."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"Yet it's a system which sounded remarkably open, natural and even dynamic with a string quartet piece."

Jason Kennedy "dagogo"

"I returned to this setup over and over again surprised each time by the overall ease and coherency of the Göbel Epoque."

Clement Perry "StereoTimes"

"Simply unbelievable that so much resolution can be accompanied by such strong tonality and such a rich foundation!"

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"The German made Göbel Epoque Reference Bending Wave loudspeaker proved to be a show stopper."

Clement Perry "StereoTimes"

"The sound image was incredibly fast, with high resolution and to a certain extent simply effortless so that the awesome amount of technology immediately just faded into the background and let the music take over."

Martin Mertens "fairaudio"

"With the Lacorde Statement, you do not have to choose between a huge imaginary space or melodic, refined, yet rich bass response. Here, you absolutely get both!"

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

Featured Technologies


Our Own Proprietary Conductor Alloy

During our research time we experimented with countless variations of conductor materials and conductor alloy materials in order to find the best conductor material possible. We ended up with our own proprietary perfect conductor alloy which contains the ideal electrical conductivity. This special alloy is always the element of the heart of all our Lacorde Statement cables. You will notice it because you do not notice it. Every detail of your music will become unbelievable easy and naturally with the highest resolution and without any coloration.

Control Of The Skin Effects

Additionally performance relevant factors are the so called skin effects. Through these skin effects the high frequencies flow near surfaces of the conductor, but middle and low frequencies flow oriented toward the center of the conductor. For a time coherent, natural and not artificially accentuated performance of the upper audio spectrum it’s elementarily important, that all frequencies will be transported equably. Additionally it is very important to take care of the signal degradation that will happen because of the direct contact between the dielectric material and the conductor. Especially if you look at the influences that happens because of the skin effects. Through our special geometry of the conductors and the dielectric materials we also get perfectly control over these issues. You will hear every aspect of your music with a coherency and with micro dynamic details that you never heard before.

Multiple Stranded Webbing Design

It is also very important to perfectly control and well balance the relation of the inductance and capacity of a cable construction so the cable is acting completely even over the whole frequency range and also far beyond. That is also a reason why all our cables of the Lacorde Statement series consists out of multiple single isolated conductors out of our proprietary alloy with a proprietary diameter and a proprietary isolation material diameter. These single isolated conductors are arranged in an unique 3D webbing matrix which totally controls and balance these cable parameters. Additionally we herby also get control over numerous of interfering field factors. You will notice it in an absolute natural music experience. No frequency range will be preferred. The music has a resolution, dynamic and speed that you never heard before. But it doesn't gets brighter because of the more dynamic, speed and resolution. It only gets natural!

Resonance Control

Furthermore it is very important to get control over the numerous resonances that always happen in all materials and material intersections. Our proprietary cable constructions and resonance control devises prevent those resonances right from the beginning. That is also the reason why we mill our own connector housings and strain reliefs out of a certain aluminum alloy and additionally equip them and the cables themselves with specific resonance control devises. We do all these efforts in order to get a controlled, broadband resonance pattern which quickly decay completely even over the entire frequency range. You will notice it in an ultra black and silent background with a perfectly arranged soundstage that is more natural than you ever experienced before. Additionally the localization of all single musical details in the room gets more sharper and more natural.
