Audio envy - dang!


I usually post on AG when I have an issue or concern, so I’m happy for once it’s to praise a new product, in this case Audio Envy’s IC. 

I use an ARC Classic 60 amp with a Herron 1A preamp. The AE cable went between these two.

I run an ARC Phono pre PH3se from my VPI prime as source.
My speakers are Thiel CS2.4’s

Out of the box a bit bright, But after a few hours that just went to strait up transparent - I mean freaking crystal clear. No tonal aberrations. Smooth, with no etched highs. Voices sound right, Natural. Soundstage opened up, as you might expect when things get clearer.

The best part was how inexpensive they were. They made my Cardas Clear Light interconnects I was using sound clouded by contrast. The Cardas was about x3 the cost of the AE’s.
BTW, this wasn’t “I think I hear differences”, this was “I’ll never use those Cardas in this system again, and where is my IPad, I need to order my next set!”

And that’s just what I did.

My p3 powercords I have 20hrs on them, the improvement is they are more quieter, and cleaner, a bit more open, I will admit they did match well on my system too.Will see after 50 hrs...I have a borrowed cable cooker, but decided to find out their sound transformation every 20hrs, I can honestly say this are excellent cables. 
By the way still waiting for my phono Cable. Looks like AE are filling lots of orders. I put my order on oct 10.Captain told me two weeks.
My system is solid state and on the analytical side, no tubes. Overall  same tonal structure after another 50 hours. I prefer the Cerious Matrix, same level of detail, but more warmth in the mids  providing a nice balance.

Nevertheless for the cost of the AE compared to 6x as expensive Matrix the performance is certainly a good value and not a apples to apples comparison.
Tom2015 are you sending those ic back? 
Ok finally after 13 days my phono Cable are on the way...😀
