NEWS & REVIEWS
The Emotion ensemble is truly a collection of master reference component links. We have been told many times that audiophiles "did not really hear their systems" until they connected to the performance with cables from the Emotion Ensemble!
The process was always the same. We would listen to the existing system, and then change out the cables. Usually within 30 seconds, the listener would proclaim something like … "Wow! What did you do to get these to sound like this??" We did not have to go back to the original cables to see what was different … they knew immediately.
Imagine that! Performance so outstanding these listeners felt their systems were unleashed to a totally new level! Performance so right, they did not just listen to one 30 second sound byte of one track on each reference disc; rather they listened to song after song, focused on the music. Performance so captivating that they did not want to stop listening at all, no matter how late it got! They were, indeed, connected to the music!

"The Kubala-Sosna Emotion interconnects connected me to the music like no other interconnects I've heard, at anywhere near the price. Their mids and highs are rhythmic and harmonic extensions of their gorgeous bass and mid-bass, with alive, reach-out-and-touch-it definition. Their mid-bass is trend setting and state-of-the-art, forming the basis of an extraordinarily accurate and realistic musical event. It's hard to believe I am just talking about interconnects, but the Emotions are system-transforming, and they involved me in the music like never before. The Emotion loudspeaker cables are equally superb, and even more neutral, with no identifiable sonic fingerprint. I also found the Emotion's ultra-low-impedance design superb when applied to the AES/EBU digital connection. The Emotion power cords are as winning as the interconnects, and consistent top performers.
If you love music as much as I do, and want the very best cables available, I suggest that you listen to the Emotions. Joe Kubala and Howard Sosna are audiophiles and music lovers who have taken connectivity to the next level. The Kubala-Sosna Emotions receive my top recommendation in their price range, where they are THE BEST OF CLASS!" FULL REVIEW

"Joe asked me which interconnect junction was most crucial to my current listening endeavors. He then made the substitution: K-S Emotion in and a very expensive pair of cables out. VOILA!
"Can you repeat that trick?" I mumbled. He nodded in response. We swapped more chunky Emotion braids into place. Same result.
I'll confess that, more than most, I'm devoted to differences that cables provide both sound crafting (recording) and sound reproduction (listening and mastering work). Anyone who's read my reviews over the years recognizes that I'm a sucker for the subtle and not so subtle differences that wire makes—tone control alterations in meter lengths. However, something was afoot here with Kubala-Sosna's Emotion cables that presented an order of magnitude difficult to define.!" FULL REVIEW
"If you love detail in music then you will get tons of it with the Emotion. It is a very resolved interconnect and no surprise that Pepe Romero’s acoustic guitar (This is K2HD sound FIM sampler) was elegantly dissected. I could hear every single string resonance on the guitar neck yet the abundance of the detail was never a trade-off for musical coherence.
In direct comparison with the aforementioned AudioQuest Wild Blue Yonder the Kubala-Sosna Emotion was the one more voluptuous sounding. It was like a Bentley where the WBY had more sporty nature. The Emotion nicely fills the gap between the quite expensive AudioQuest and the quite affordable Cardas Clear.
What to say about the Emotion’s soundstage – it just is. The images were firmly locked in space and the combination of the imaging and the resolution gave wonderful in-room presence to e.g. marimba. The slightest silky veil on Emotion’s highs suppresses recorded ambiance so the interconnects canvas is really dark. The benefit is that all the other sounds stand out with bigger contrast and the cable provides a great sense of dynamism." FULL REVIEW
