Audioquest LeoPard Phono Cable

We do not have dozens of phono cables available from which to choose, as we do interconnect cables. It seems that only a few of the top manufacturers offer cables specifically designed and configured for the critical tonearm-to-phono preamplifier connection. One of these is Audioquest, one of the oldest high-end cable manufacturers.

Five Balanced Interconnect Cables

I was just sitting there listening to music. I was enjoying the apparent sound stage created between the loudspeakers and wondered how my system would sound without the equipment rack sitting between the speakers and then the trouble began. My “rack” is 750 pounds of sandstone from a local quarry. There are four shelves, each 48” x 18” x 1.25” and weighing about 90 pounds each.

Graham IC70 vs. Hovland MG2 Phono Cables

Ladies and Gentlemen! In this corner, the world renowned Graham IC-70 tonearm cable. And in the other corner, the equally famous Hovland Music Groove 2 tonearm cable. Yes, folks, here are the two best tonearm cables in the world, fighting DIN and RCA to win your hearts as the new World Champion! This is a fight to the death; winner takes all. The bell is about to ring, so take your seats and get ready for… The Fight of the Titans!

Harmonic Technology Pro-Silway mk. II interconnects

Point. Counterpoint. This was a difficult review to kick off, not because these interconnect cables are hard to describe, but because any component review needs to place the item in some sort of context.

Nordost Valkyrja & Valhalla Interconnect Cables

The Valhalla review follows the Valkyrja review. Please see below for Valhalla.

Oritek X-1 Interconnect Cables

Audiophiles are a lucky group in many ways. We get the obvious pleasure from listening to our preferred forms of music.

PS Audio xStream Resolution Reference and Transcendent Interconnect Cables

Things are getting very interesting in the high-end audio arena, and you and I are the beneficiaries. We have seen new technologies introduced over the years with their high initial prices. We have watched as these state-of-the-art parts and manufacturing processes become more common and make their way into lower cost products.

Slinkylinks Interconnect & Speaker Cables

Slinkylinks. Sounds like a child’s toy, doesn’t it? These cables do not sound like toys, but they do have a “slinky” look and feel:  smooth and shiny, and packaged in small metal cans.

Window Cable Special Interconnect & Special Phono Cables

The shortness of this review is not an indication that my reviews are regressing to their earlier style of  “short and sweet”. It just happens to fit the product under review. Window Cable™ is a landmark product. It does the job of passing information better than any other cable ever auditioned in my systems.
