George Cardas worked in the sixties with the company GTE or General Telephone & Electronics Corporation, the current Verizon Communications Inc. He was already busy with transmission cables for the telephone system and later responsible for the transition from analogue to digital use of the telephony infrastructure.
With all his experience at the above telecommunications company he founded the company Cardas Audio in 1980 to put his insights in the field of audio cables into practice.
The company's logo refers to the Golden Ratio, which is a natural mathematical relationship in nature, illustrated in this case by the Cardas logo with a drawing of a cochlea.
This ratio would also be of importance, according to Cardas, for the transmission of an audio signal in which is prevented by having the layers of the litz wires in the cable relate to the Gulde Snede in order to prevent resonances in the cable due to current fluctuations.
