Oehlbach has many customers, all of whom have different demands on the connections and components of their systems, and there are those who simply want above-average technology at a very good price-performance ratio and want to spend less time on the details. Others are already demanding a bit more - for example, even better materials for even better signal transmissions that are already almost reaching the limits of what is technically possible. And some even want us to realize this technically possible maximum for them and create unique products that define perfection and state-of-the-art in their field. You know what you want. We have created the Oehlbach quality promise so that you can always find the right product quickly online or in stores. In one word, it defines the class of all Oehlbach products and at the same time allows you an easier selection of suitable Oehlbach solutions for your home entertainment. Decide for Performance, Excellence or State of the Art.


The performance series marks the entry into the world of Oehlbach. At the same time, however, our performance products are anything but entry-level solutions, but offer you already outstanding performance with high-quality materials at an excellent price-performance ratio. What is otherwise regarded as premium is for us a standard for the performance label: for example, 24 carat gold-plated contact plugs or inner conductors made of OFC copper, which is elaborately produced without oxygen in order to make loss-free signal transmission possible due to its purity.


The Excellence class goes a long way further. Cable connections, for example, are built around an even higher quality silver-plated inner conductor, which can increase the transmission quality close to the optimum. We also equip these cables with a further increased shielding made of oxygen-free copper braiding and additionally shielded solid metal plugs or other strictly controlled components. Oehlbach Excellence products thus easily meet higher to very high demands for top-class home entertainment quality. They definitely play in the Champions League. But the favorite role there belongs to others:

State of the Art

Under the State of the Art label, Oehlbach shows everything that is technically possible at the moment. For automobiles, this performance class is called super sports car. Oehlbach calls it State of the Art. These products represent the latest state of technical development with all new innovations in connection technology for home entertainment. Inner conductors are made from high-purity, absolutely oxygen-free HPOCC copper. It is not drawn like other copper conductors, but cast in a special process. As a result, the last crystalline structures that could impair signal transmission disappear and monocrystalline copper is created as a perfect conductor. We manufacture suitable plug connections from solid metal and gild them with 24 carat gold to reduce losses or interference at the interfaces to an absolute minimum. At Oehlbach State of the Art there is one thing you can always rely on: More is impossible.
