Most Wanted Components

Entreq was founded 1999 and are today , a truly Swedish company, we are one of the very few companies that develop,manufacture and produce our own products. Because of this approach you will never see us immitate other brands or their technical solutions. Consequently our products are not only distinctive in their constructive materials & design but also in their connective processes.

This control over each and every aspect, in conjunction with our unique philosophy and design brief, means we are able to focus purely, with no compromise, on performance.

Performance first !

This may sound like a natural aspiration in the field of audio but in our opinion this is rarely the case!

As a company we are continually searching for new factors that influence as well as improve the performance of our products. We will always use the listening experience as the true measure of musical success. If we can then calculate the reasons as to what and why, so much the better, but that is actually far less important.

“ What you can measure is not important, and the important cannot always be measured ”

There is quite a lot of truth in that sentence, even if it is not completely correct. 
We at Entreq trust more what we hear and experience than what the gauges tell us. If this sounds better than anything else, then it is. It is that simple, even if you perhaps cannot explain it scientifically with measurements.

We remember back in 70, when all should be measure in lab. At that time it was DIN  45 500 that tell us everything. It was DIN Watt, IM dist, HM dist etc,etc.If it not measure good enough, it been solved with negative feedback and all good .
Many times the stuff sounds bad, but if the measurement was so good, it must be good, that´s it.
It was a sensation when Matti Otaala from Uleaborg university explain why some amps that only give 20 W by Din 45500 sound so much more powerfull than amps that give 200w by same norm.
What we mean is that we sometimes dont know what to meassure and what make sence.
And for you who say everything can be messured, could you kindly inform us of how you exactly measure the speed of an object in motion ? 

Over the years Entreq has consistently recieved plaudits from around the world for its innovative products. The quality of design, craftmanship and most importantly, musicality, have been recognised as the heart beat of every product.

We are proud and delighted to say that the editors and writers of " The Stereo Times " have awarded the accolade " Most Wanted Component 2012 " to not only our entire line of Apollo cable products, but in addition, our current top of the line Silver Tellus Ground Station. In 2015 we get the same fine award for our whole Power managment system, included Apollo Powerus, Cleanus and Olympus Tellus These awards are reserved solely for exceptional products that offer only the highest standards of performance.

We also are extremly proud for get the AV Magazine award
Super AV Awards Outstanding Overall performance award 2014 for
Silver Tellus.  
2015 we get the same fine award for our Powercord Konstantin 3V and also for Olympus Tellus.


We hope you take the time to listen and appreciate what many reviewers and music lovers have came to recognized about our extensive range of products.

Ten years of knowledge
 

Ertha Apollo Infinity Line Ertha Apollo Infinity Line















Eartha Infinity line.
The new link to a solid music experience.
When we worked with develop our RG 45 line we find many new details that have effect on sound quality who we have missed before
During that work we learned that the drain conductors have far more impact on the final result then we ever even could imagine before. The knowledge we get from this project we now use in our new Eartha cable line and the result are stunning.
In the production process we expose the conductors for a very high pressure. This process seems to reduce the resistance in the Eartha cables and the result is in our opinion absolutely stunning. You get far better flow and musicality. We mean that already the new Eartha Discover Infinity beat the old Eartha Apollo in many ways when come to musicality.
And how do the new Eartha Apollo Infinity and Atlantis Infinity perform comparing to the old line?
Well, sometimes it´s only stupid to try find the words. Especially when you, like me, not  are so familiar with the language.  
You better try yourself.
All of you who already use Eartha cables today should know that we are working on a solution that will make it possible for us to offer all of you who use Eartha  cable a possibility to upgrade your existing Eartha cable to the same level of the new Eartha Infinity for a reasonable price.
More info and price for upgrade will be published the nearest weeks on our web site.

We at Entreq are extremely proud to ten years after our introduction of Tellus, release Olympus Ten.
         This little groundbox really state that

                     “old is the oldest”  

Olympus Ten are the result of more than ten years of experience from groundboxes and the result is stunning. The leap in performance compared with Silver Minimus is tremendous. Of cource the bigger brothers Olympus Mini and Olympus Tellus have more solid effect, but we hardly believe you ever will find any other box in this size that give you so high performance for so reasonable price. 
Olympus Ten is the smallest box in the Olympus line. We think it will be a pattern for many years when it comes to size, performance and price.

RG45 Apollo RG45 Apollo


2017-05-22












All of you who use our groundboxes, cables, racks and tweaks, you know what it means. 
You who don´t, why not discover it?


For more than three years I have worked with streaming and RG45 cables trying to get same quality as from CD transport. I knew it should be possible and also understand that the RG45 cable was the bottleneck. You can´t compare a RG45 cable with a FW, USB or normal digital cable. It´s something totally different.
The two first years I could not get any grab about it. The problems only foul around with me and it was a total mess. I tested a lot of the standard Cat5, Cat6 and Cat7 cables on the market. No matter how good the Router, DAC, other hardware and software I used, the result was kindly said bad or even worse. In my opinion it sounded lifeless, dead, sticky and without any flow. As my wife say “ a wall of sound, but definitive not music”.
Finally, I found a standard Cat 6a cable that sounded better than the others. I investigated that cable in every detail and compared it with the other cable I have tested. Specially against the worst sounding. I began to understand the influence of the construction of the cables. 
The conductor area, how they should be twisted, pressure against conductors, how the drain wire should be designed etc. To make a long story short, I slowly understand which parameters that are important for good sound and which are important for good data transfer. Two totally different things.
Now, nearly one year and endless of listening tests later we can present a complete line of RG45 cables. From entry level to real High End. All of them with our EEDS.
With this RG45 cables, a good router, a PC with Windows 10 and one of our Serie II USB cable you will be able to stream with a sound quality you only thought good CD or Vinyl could present. In my opinion you get close to the same natural sound from Spotify as you get from the best CD transports on market. 
 
Some facts.
We at Entreq always use electronics that have the best reputation on market for our tests.
We use many different brands, dCS, Tidal Audio, Wilson, Technics, Marten, etc. 
Whit the knowledge from using so many different systems we know and want you to be aware that it´s not always the most expensive cable that will be the one that fit you and your system best. You need to test by your self and let your dealer guide you.
 
Remember that everything start with the access point to internet, no matter if you have fiber or wireless. The Router need a good (Entreq cable) to the access point if you use fiber and also take care how you place the Router. Think of it as a source. There will be difference in sound depending on what material you place the Router on. I have also found that it seems that Routers with high voltage in the power supply generally works best. Change the Power supply to a dedicated improved supply. We have good experience from using Sbooster for an example.
  
At the end, I must declare that I never tested any of the dedicated audiophile cables on market, and there are three reasons for that. If you look at others solutions, it´s so easy be blind and not see the real problem. Also, it´s not fair play try copy other cohort’s and finally if you want to get first to a point, you simply need to find new paths. If you go where some other already walked, you never be first. So I only used standard cables in our development.
