van den Hul The Second XLR interlink – Mini Review
This cable is special because it doesn’t use any metal such as silver, copper or gold as conductors. Instead, it employs individually coated carbon fiber. Indeed the resulting sound is anything but metallic, showing no signs of edginess or other defects often associated with metal conductors. In fact, it has little sound of its own, making for a bland presentation in some setups as it can lack color or attack. Its highs are very nice though: open, airy and silky. Mids are unforced and natural but dynamically maybe a tad restrained and the least well-developed part of this cable is the bass which however deep, is a bit woolly and lacking power.
