Not unlike the Solo Crystal Oval but with a lot more air in the treble, a more forward character and a leaner, better articulated bass.

Driade Flow 405 loudspeaker cable premium
This cable truly is something else. It has a smooth, free-flowing, organic and highly involving delivery that, quite unusually, does not come along with a lack of focus or a reduction in dynamic slam.

FoilFlex sells high-quality state-of-the-art cables exclusively through a family-owned and -operated business with the aim to provide very high performance as well as great value. The perception is that High-End equals High Expense, and often, that holds true but FoilFlex aims to do things differently.

Isotek Premium Powercord – Mini Review premium
This cable was purchased after repeated endorsements of readers of this site. Personally, I always figured that it was simply a Lapp cable with a colored sleeve instead of transparent, with custom printing. But this was just a hunch, and hunches have to be proven.

Thankfully, all this resolution does not come […]
