These interconnects were designed using Analysis Plus' patented hollow oval geometry to control current density, in a form suitable for braiding from pure, oxygen-free copper. The signal lines are then wrapped with a shield to provide protection from EMI/RFI. The result is a super-quiet, extremely neutral cable, priced well within any budget.
Some longer length Copper Oval cables may be special orders. Please allow a few extra days delivery for those items.
"The differences wrought in my system by the addition of the Analysis Plus Silver Oval cables and interconnects are positive, dramatic and immediately apparent -- quite an achievement when you stop to consider that I already use a reference-caliber product ..."
"The AP produced, to my amazement, greater inner detail as a direct result of its more natural, thus superior, dimensionality. The sound of Hargrove's muted trumpet -- rather its intricacies -- the sound of air moving through the horn gave it greater presence and spatial localization. The same is true of Keith Jarrett. Here, with Jack DeJohnette's delicate cymbal work, the initial snap and resonance from Gary Peacock's double bass, could not better illustrate these cables' superiority. I can't recommend the Analysis Plus Silver Oval more highly."
"The Analysis Plus Silver Oval makes my system sound more real. These cables have taken my system closer to the Absolute Sound."- Clement Perry The Stereo Times, May 2000
"The Oval Nine cable is so good and so inexpensive that it really deserves, and gets, a solo review. The big-buck cable boys are going to have a COW over this one."
"Oh, heck, you get the picture -- we seldom get true balance and superb performance in each major category: bass, midrange, treble dynamics, soundstaging. This cable is very good to superb in each of these categories and as is so often the case in audio, the whole exceeds the sum of the parts. Taken as a totality, this is the best cable I have yet auditioned in my system."- Stuart McCreary The Stereo Times, May 2000
"In my humble yet resolute opinion, these cables are a value like no other"…
"Analysis Plus Oval-12 speaker cable."
…"What the Oval-12s did to distinguish themselves, however, was to allow my gear to demonstrate the important aspects of music reproduction in a way that speaker cables before them did not. Listening to the Oval-12, I realized that my system always had the potential to make more realistic, involving, and emotionally powerful music, but other speaker cables were holding it back, so it seems"…
"…"The Analysis Plus Oval-12 is one of the surest and simplest recommendations I can make. If you are interested in value, without compromising any aspect of performance, check these out. Oh, and be sure to hurry before the guys at Analysis Plus wise up and decide to price these cables for the 'real world'."- Paul Knutson, Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity, 3/28/00

|Analysis Plus copper oval|
Ordered a half meter pair. As an upgrade for me from audioquest diamondback pair. Ive been so impressed by the more enjoyed sound of AP black oval speaker cable over my prev fave of audioquest rocket33. The Analysis plus giving better air and detai top to bottom along with larger soundstage front to back. Once isntalled, my first reaction was yes except for weak bass compared the the audioquest. Excellent detail and qaulity just a little weak sounding in comparrison. After about 5 and half to six hrs of playtime this problem started to dissapear. And by 12 hrs burn in time I think their at maximum performance or near it. Little things like rain sounding more like rain. The eire air atmosphere soundbeds in some horror movies and such more palpable. The copper plus interconnect give my cd/dvd player Denon DVD1940CI that little bit better, more detailed and natural sounding advantage Ive come to love from Analysis plus cables. The cable is wired with the braid and inner black jacketed wire to ground and the inner purple jacketed wire to tip positive. Like in better electric guitar wiring for best noise rejection and less possibility of outside electric and magnetic interference. The box audio adviser sent me while marked for half meter pair accidentally had a single 2 meter one. So after talking with the great folks at Audioadviser it was decided Id keep the cable and cut it in half and add my own rca plugs to the cut ends. So I called AP to verify how to wire the two new rcas added top give me a pair isntead of single cable.
