Acoustic Zen Silver Reference IC


I recently acquired an Acoustic Zen Silver Reference balanced interconnect, (Acoustic Zen was formed by cable designer Robert Lee who used to be the designer of Harmonic Tech.)since I always wanted to try out new interconnects anyway.

I initially expected this cables to be just another cable since I have Nordost Quattro Fil as a reference on my all solid state system (EMC1,Krell KRC3 and FPB200,Thiel CS3.6). Much to my surprise without even breaking it in as I placed it on my system the sound just change to the best sound I heard coming from my speakers. I was shaking my head as this is really happening without the quattro fil in line. I'm not the best guy to write about audiophile sound but I can tell you that this cable just blew the all other cables I had in my system. This cable simply brought my system to another level. Resolution and transparancy increased three fold allowing details to emanate from the music naturally w/o being analytic, or "in your face". Anybody looking for a new cable, this one really is worth an audition.

Morasp...I have the 47 labs flatfish w/progrssion dac, Lamm L-1, Lamm ML-1's, Kharma Ceramique 2's. I use AZ cables from dac to pre and pre to amps(i used the Nirvana sx from cd to pre and sl from pre to amp). My speaker cables are Purist Dominus rev B. Digital cable is NBS model 1. FIM gold cords on amps and shunyata KC's on cd power supply and pre-amp. All front end gear is plugged intp PS audio p-300 w/multiwave and bybee upgrade.
I have recently replaced Analysis Plus Silver and Nirvana SX with similar good results. Give it a try you may really like it.
Rmml....I do enjoy listening and I listen alot. I have an anolog front end as well and spend quite a bit of time with the big black discs. The 47 labs comes as close to the qualities I admire in anolog of any digital I've heard in my system.
