Excellent cables at an amazing price
November 23, 2019
To start, I wanted to buy some cables for a couple of uses, short haul studio connections and also for my office listening setup. Both of these benefit from great, well made, consistent cables. What I mean by consistent is that two six feet cables are as close as possible to being the same in regards to its electrical characteristics. I test and measure (not size, distance, but for resistance and flow of voltage/current and also RFI/EMI) cables before they are introduced to any of my gear so the cables don’t introduce artifacts that alters the audio in a negative way.
Here is what I found. The cables are very consistent so I did not get any channel imbalance in stereo (L/R) applications with 2 of their cables, did not pickup any external noise, and was very clear with minimal resistance.
The build quality is excellent, but my use case is install it and use for the office, and the studio use is patch, use until sessions are complete, then disconnect for future session. So I hope the ends will last a while.
The cable is very rigid so as you unravel for the first time, make sure it is straightened, then shape into angles of choice while still avoiding hard 90 degree angles.
Does it improve the audio over some very expensive cables that run a minimum of $10-$100 per foot? In some cases, yes. Some of my expensive cables are thinner, more sensitive to pick up EMI/RFI noise and the dreaded cell phone modem like noise. I have filters for that through shielded conduits but that adds another $5 or more per foot of shielding at bulk.
To conclude, you can’t go wrong with these cables. They are built well, have not had problems with either termination connectors, and the sound is excellent with minimal to no noise added to the audio chain.
I’ll continue to buy these as needed, as long as they keep manufacturing them.
Hope this helps.
