An "Utterly Clear" Transmission Line
True to their name, Analysis Plus Solo Crystal Oval interconnect cables "always sound like utterly clear conduits between your components and music," reports Marc Mickelson in the October 2002 issue of SoundStage!. "I was able to hear into the recordings in new ways, which elevated these CDs so close to SACDs that telling the difference between the two would be very difficult at best in a blind test."
Patented hollow oval geometry controls current bunching and frequency effects for the truest possible sound. Premium Continuous Cast Copper braids produce the smoothest possible transmission medium, eliminating grainy sound, while proprietary Teflon dielectrics resist energy storage.
The 100-percent shield coverage goes way beyond the level of shielding that lesser cables provide. The Solo Crystal copper shield provides the ultimate barrier against airborne RF and EMI interference. A special conductive sheath eliminates microphonic movement noise.
"These Are Fabulous Cables"
SoundStage!fairly froths at the mouth over the virtues of Solo Crystal Oval. "These are fabulous cables that won't act as filters or tone controls for your equipment, putting forth sound that's as direct and vivid as that of any cables I've used," raves Mickelson.
"A Bracing, High Resolution View"
Hand-crafted Solo Crystal Oval cables comes standard terminated with locking RCA connectors. Even this 'unbalanced' cable takes advantage of a balanced configuration offering symmetry between signal and return, using 'hot' and 'cold' current paths along with a shield for an extremely quiet noise floor.
"If you are looking for cables that offer a bracing, high-resolution view of your equipment and music, you've found them in the Solo Crystal Oval cables," concludes SoundStage!.
