A Proud Tradition
Since 1976 the Gotham name has been associated with a superior range of professional audio cable for the recording, production and broadcast industries. The simple goal: Minimize noise and interference. Meet the demand for worry-free transport of audio signals in today's challenging electromagnetic environment.
Gotham Audio Cables reflect the proud heritage of German broadcast engineering. Much of the range features "Double Reussen Shielding." Two layers of 100% coverage, bare copper wires, wound in opposite directions over the conductors provide the maximum RF-rejection. This design, with its finely stranded copper wire and supple jacketing, assures superb flexibility, easy and fast handling, low memory and reliable, long life.
Manufacturers of some of the world's most prestigious and costly microphones have made Gotham their cable of choice. Yet for all their noise-free, neutral sonic quality and superior feel and finish, Gotham Audio Cables are modestly priced!!
A Major Step Forward
Gotham Audio Cables were originally imported from Austria by the Gotham Audio Corporation in New York City. In 1983, Gotham Audio established a subsidiary, Gotham AG, in Regensdorf, Switzerland. WhenGotham Audio founder Stephen Temmer retired in 1985, he transferred the sales rights for Gotham Audio Cables to the Swiss company, headed by Franz Ammann. Gotham AG established an international distribution network for the cables, while developing a wide range of new products, including the first cable specifically designed for AES/EBU digital audio.
Gotham Audio Cables achieved great popularity in North American audio markets during the 1980’s when they were distributed by the Gotham companies in New York City and Canada. After the untimely demise of the New York Gotham in the early 1990’s, distribution passed to a new company, DGS, associated with Mouser Electronics in Mansfield, Texas. After considerable initial success, DGS ceased operations in the late 1990’s and a Canadian cable assembly company was appointed as the new distributor for both the US and Canada.
Independent distribution continued to prove troublesome. In some cases, American clients found it difficult to obtain Gotham cables and a few came to the unfounded conclusion that the cables were no longer available in the US. Gotham AG owners Franz and Manuela Ammann knew that the American market deserved more focused professional distribution and support. In 2004, they began working with industry veteran Lewis Frisch to improve visibility and distribution in the US.
Inspired by the legacy of Stephen Temmer and his Gotham Audio Corporation, Franz and Lewis formed a new company, Gotham Audio LLC, to insure product availability, excellent pricing and the highest level of personal service. Since 2005, the famed Gotham Audio name and distinctive Gotham logo have regained a position of prominence in the American audio market, continuing a 50 year tradition of professionalism and excellence.
