Anticables Reference Level Cables Review

By | February 16th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , , , |

Let’s get my bias against higher gauge speaker cables out in the open from the start. I am not a fan of higher AWG (thinner conductor) speaker cables. Nor am I impressed with higher AWG power cords. Audiophiles have their preferences, and mine is toward lower AWG (heavier conductor) speaker cables and power cables.

Bill O’Connell of Morningstar Audio many years ago sent me some old Bell Wire 12 Ga. solid copper, cotton cloth dielectric wiring to try as speaker cable.

Cardas Audio is one of our industry’s most respected high-end audio cable companies, with a 30-year history of developing and manufacturing cables for audio, music production, and recording applications.

JIB Boaacoustic Digital Cables

Wolfgang Kemper, guest contributor from HiFi Statement

The Boaacoustic cables’ colorful unique design quickly catches your eye. This is an advantage when you want to stand out in the wide selection of cables on the market. Just what qualities are hidden beneath the colorful exteriors?

Oh no! No more cables! That was my first reaction as a former sales colleague introduced me to the JIB-Boaacoustic cable assortment while I was visiting the 2018 High-End trade show in Munich. I had already taken notice of their impressive booth.… Read the full article

Wireworld Eclipse 8 Loudspeaker Cables

By | December 31st, 2018|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , |

When I have conversations with my friends about Wireworld, the level of recognition is almost universal as this is one of the early companies that pioneered the field of high-performance component cabling. Yet if you dig a bit deeper and ask what they know, you often find that many hobbyists do not have an in-depth understanding of the company, or what their products offer. You might get the response of “well, they make cables,” or perhaps you will hear, “they make pretty expensive cables,” and variations of those answers.… Read the full article

Furutech NanoFlux and LineFlux Cables and Power Products

By | December 31st, 2018|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , , , , , |

When I first spoke with Scot Markwell, US Distributor of Furutech products, at Elite Audio Video Distribution in LA, and a longtime colleague of, and setup man for, the late Harry Pearson, about the opportunity to review a full loom of Furutech flagship cables and passive power devices, I admit to being more than a little interested.

I can’t imagine anyone motivated to read this evaluation could be unfamiliar with the name. The widespread acceptance and use of the Furutech brand of terminations by so many of the most recognized cable and speaker manufactures has made the name almost ubiquitous in today’s high-end cable game.… Read the full article

Listening #193: Nordost Flatline cables

By | December 31st, 2018|Categories: Stereophile|

Among the many bits of audio lore that never have and probably never will be aired in public is the story of the amp that ignited the reviewer’s curtains. (I assume that at least some of you hoped I was going to say “pants.”) I can’t tell it in any great detail, partly because the reviewer in question is a friend (though not a Stereophile colleague), and I’m not sure how much of the story he wants out there. In any event, my object here is to offer a long-overdue apology, to all concerned, for having laughed at that story over the years, because it has now happened to me—not the part about the curtains, but definitely the part about the burning amp.… Read the full article

Cables & consistency

By | December 11th, 2018|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , |

Tell the Average Joe not versed in the double trouble of electrical noise and jitter that you dropped US$350 on a USB cable and s/he’ll likely question your sanity. Audiophiles know what Joe does not: that not all USB connections are born equal.

For this commentator, there’s no doubting the Curious USB cable’s audible superiority to vanilla wire – some of which doesn’t even meet the USB spec. The Curious also knocks out other audiophile-aimed offerings like AudioQuest’s Carbon. Old Yella lends music more pep, more detail and a better sense of space but without straying into the Carbon’s occasional brightness — a handful of reasons why the Curious has been my goto USB wire for the past three years.… Read the full article
