this made a big difference

I had been using bulk speaker cables that I had terminated myself, but I knew it was time to try some better cables. I like the idea of getting these no-frills type 4 in different lengths as one speaker needed more cable the other did. All my music sounds so much better now. Especially all my Vinyl and SACDs. Ive been slowly going through my system and changing out all my cables and interconnects with better cabling and these cables really have been a great upgrade to my system.

Fantastic Value

Conclusion: This is an incredibly musical wire, offering tons of detail and grain free performance at a bargain basement price. Previous speaker cable: MiT Terminator 6. I really like my MIT 6 wire! I tried quite a few wires before deciding on some second hand MIT wire. However, the bass was just a tad muddy and the top sounded a bit less substantial having body than real instruments. I wanted to see if the speaker wire was holding things back. I decided to try the AC4. In comparison, the AC4 has tighter, cleaner bass. I can hear the bass lines as distinct and clear musical lines now. I can also hear the leading edge better, as well as more of the character of the bass, tone, pitch comes through much better. Mids are smoother and more grain free. It is true that the human voice is less forward than with the MIT. Im not sure if this is more true and accurate than the MIT in this regard, or if the voice is slightly, and I mean slightly, attenuated from where it should be. Still, the female voice is clear I can make out lyrics more easily, and vocals are still nicely centered in the field. Highs are unquestionably not only more present, not just louder - but they have more body - a cymbal sounds more real and in the room, not tinny or fabricated. Seriously, the highs are shear pleasure. None of this extra detail comes at the cost of brightness, at least in my system. The soundstage is wider, deeper, and more 3D. This may be a function of the greater treble and mid micro details Im hearing. The noise floor seems even lower than the MITs, and Im hearing micro details much more clearly. Overall, right out of the package there is no box!, this wire, in my system at least, sounds at once more detailed and distortion free, and more honest than even the well regarded MIT 6 wire which was much more expensive, even used. The slightly less fwd voices may be seen as a deficit by some, but it seems more true, and allows much more of the instrumental information to shine through. I cant recommend this inexpensive wire highly enough. Give it a try in your system. My system: Oppo BD83 modified, PS Audio DAC III, Nuforce P9 Preamp, Nuforce Ref 9 V2 SE monoblock amps, PS Audio Power Plant Premier conditioner, MIT interconnects. VMPS RM-30 hybrid ribbon floorstanding speakers, with upgraded wiring, capacitors.
