Kimber pbj and Tonik Interlink – Mini Review
Excellent neutral performers
Very detailed, highly neutral and fast/rhythmic but arguably slightly dry and thin, lacking the body/fullness that you do get with most thicker cables. The benefit, however, is that the pbj is highly uncolored and neutral and compared with other cables at this price it performs admirably and is the natural choice as a first step-up interlink. Sounds the same used in a cinch or balanced XLR configuration.
This is (sort of) the affordable follow-up of the well-liked pbj. Its sound is somewhat comparable but different in some areas. The bass is less tight, the highs more fluid and resolution is a notch down but the entire presentation is more relaxed, making this cable potentially the better choice in more open or analytical systems.
