Planus AG 1 Silver Ribbon Interconnects - Stunning Low Level Resolution.
MG Audio Planus AG 1
Why MG Audio?
MG Audio is a Colorado company (and darn nice guys) that designs cables focused on minimizing capacitive, inductive and skin effects that color the sound of audio cables. By minimizing these factors with the ulta delicat low-level audio signal you can hear more clearly into the musical performance, catch details you have never heard before, and better capture the emotional intent of the musical production.. MG Audio designs cables based on physics and good engineering practice, not voodoo. In our opinion, MG Audio cables offer an unprecidented, real value in comparison to cables far more expensive. We encourage you to try MG audio cables through our in-home audition program and our 30-day money back guarantee.

The Planus AG's ability to resolve low level detail and musical subtleties is absolutely stunning considering it's price point. You can spend much more money, pay for a cable companies marketing budget, and have bragging rights with your friends. But you won't have better sound...
What you will hear
You can easily hear the bowing and plucking of strings, drum sticks hitting drum-heads, hammers hitting the strings of a piano and the subtle voice inflections of a singer. On well-recorded live venues you hear the ambience of the recording environment and the subtle noises made by the crowd. This interconnect can put you in the performance.
Matching The Planus AG with your system
It’s just startling in its realism. Like most silver wires, it has a hint of brightness in the upper midrange and thus may not be well suited to an already bright system. However, in terms of sheer resolution, Planus AG has no peers. We recommend the Planus AG with tube gear, and warmer sounding systems.
2 Ways To Audition the Planus AG In Your Own System
Audition the Planus AG via our In-Home Audition Program. The In-Home Audition program gives you a weekend plus a few days to experience how the cables will integrate with your own system. If you need more time, the 30 Day money back guarantee allows you to keep the cables for 30 days. Of course, with the 30 day program, you will have to pay for the cables in advance. But in the event that you find the Planus AG interconnects are not a good match for your system, we will refund you the purchase price of the cables after you return them in the same condition in which you received them.
Care of Planus Wires
The Planus line of products is a completely different design than most speaker wires and interconnects. Because we use thin foils and films in their construction, they are somewhat delicate and will not withstand the abuse that more classically constructed cables can be subjected to. The wires should be handled by the terminated ends whenever possible. DO NOT pull on the wires themselves when disconnecting as this could damage the terminations and make the wires inoperable.
Although Planus wires are flat, they should not be run under equipment, carpets, or other objects. The insulation, while tough, is not designed to support foot traffic and will cut or tear if run across a sharp edge. Further, Planus interconnects are intentionally unshielded and should be kept away from sources of electrical noise, such as switching power supplies, radio transmitters, and similar devices. If you experience radio frequency interference (RFI) with Planus interconnect, please contact us. We can install RFI suppression devices on your cables. Finally, while the foils used in the construction of Planus wires is very flexible, continuous or frequent flexing of the wire should be avoided as it could lead to degraded sound and wire failure.
We strongly suggest a periodic cleaning of the terminations and terminals in audio systems. This includes the terminations associated with Planus wires. We prefer to use CAIG Laboratories DeoxIT® products, but any quality contact cleaner/preservative will work. The rhodium spades do not need any significant maintenance, just wipe with a diluted alcohol occasionally.
The Planus wire family is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year. This warranty does not cover abuse of the wire. As a practical matter, we have wire that has been in use for over 20 years with no degradation of performance.
