Anti-cables Performance Series Level 2
I have owned the classic anti-cables from time to time in the past. I liked much of what they did, but I did think they were just a little too forward in the upper mids. While this may have been system dependant or my personal hearing traits, I haven't used them in quite a while.
My days of super expensive cables (and gear) have been over for some time. I have a modest (by high end standards) system and I am always looking for inexpensive ways to make noticable improvements to the sound.
I recently switched to a set of Sunfire CRM2 monitor speakers with ribbon tweeters. They are very detailed yet very very smooth. Actually, I thought they were a little too smooth, so I thought I would give the new L2 anti-cables a try; obviously, there is nothing to lose with a money back guarantee.
Wow. I had been using a set of Supra 3/4S which are very nice sounding. But the Level2 anticables are significantly better in my system. I was looking for a more lively sound, what I got was a 'you are there' presentation, literally more detail from recording with no hardness or etch. And this performance with the cables coming straight out of the box. I was able to move the speakers further apart and yet have a stronger center fill and a bigger soundstage. Ambience cues are now easily heard.
I can't report on the deep bass response as the Sunfire's are crossed over to powered subs at 100Hz (by design).
I'll report back after a week or two of break-in.
