Nordost Odin 2 analog interconnect, $19,999.99/0.6m pair

Read Here

“Lest this sound like a dithyrambic paean to Nordost, I feel obliged to mention that there are pluses and minuses to the level of resolution provided by the Odin 2. For one thing, it will prove ruthlessly revealing of equipment upstream. This cable deserves to be allied with top-drawer equipment to really strut its stuff. It’s also the case that some listeners may prefer a more sumptuous cable. I don’t mean to imply that the Odin 2 is in any way sonically anemic. Nordost has handsomely overcome some of the deficiencies that constituted a kind of penalty for the speed of its earlier versions. It is emphatically the case that there is no hint of stridency with the Odin 2. In the crowded world of high-end cables, however, there are indubitably other competitors that will deliver more overtones around each note, a more overtly silky background and a grander bass.”

EFFECT AUDIO THOR SILVER II+ : CLARITY – REVIEW

Read Here

“It’s a shame that my original Thor Silver is terminated for use with Audeze headphones, that makes it kind of hard to compare the sound signature of both cables. What I like most about this cable is that it almost disappears when you’re using it, the cable is so comfortably and light (for an aftermarket cable) that it never bothers you when you’re on the go. Sonically, its major strength is the incredible clarity, precision and cleanness. In contrast to most of the silver cables that just increase treble presence (which this cable also does), this cable does a bit of everything. Without influencing the bass, mids or treble “body-wise” it makes everything more precise, tight and clear”

Nordost Tyr 2 cable system $2,509 for a meter pair Review

” The bass notes of instruments were highlighted to such extent that made the ensemble seem more energetic than ever. Barber’s vocalization as rendered by the Nordost Tyr 2 cable system had appreciable ambience and warmth.”

NORDOST FREY 2 SPEAKER CABLE AND INTERCONNECTS REVIEW

Read Here

“In comparison to the pricier WyWires Platinum or a personal reference like the Synergistic Research Atmosphere Level 4—cables that closely resemble each other in terms of mellower timing, rounder edges, and greater ambience—Nordost Frey 2 conveyed a slightly cooler, more modern take, and seemed a bit faster but dimensionally just a bit shallower.”

TRANSPARENT AUDIO XL GENERATION 5 INTERCONNECTS AND CABLES t $17,000 for an 8′ PAIR REVIEW

Read Here

” If you do not own Transparent Audio cables, be aware that the Transparent Audio XL Generation 5 is not the most expensive set of cables that Transparent Audio sells—those would be the Magnum Opus models, and I did not audition any of those. One real problem with reviewing cables from even a single manufacturer is the sheer number of options, and about all I can say is that the various models I’ve tried over the years have been consistently good.”

LessLoss Homage To Time XLR balanced interconnects review $640 a pair

READ HERE

“With a good cable, details in harmonic structure can be more easily recognised. At the point of conversion to acoustical vibration, the electrical vibrations materialise more believably and naturally into sound which is more recognisable. Thus, it becomes easier and more interesting to listen. Enjoyment of the experience is enhanced. ”
