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.

@arafiq,

Glad to hear you’re enjoying AE speaker and PC cables. When cables are this good, the low cost of admission is simply icing on the cake. As I said before, they are truly end game cables in my system, I no longer wonder or care what else is out there 😊

Any updates yet? Very curious the difference between the AE power cord and the TWL Obsession power cord. I’ve been thinking about these two PCs.
After 45 hrs burn in of my AE pc it continues to open up more , tone is more balance sweeter and smooth, 100hrs  is when they are maximize in their performance, this is according to Waltersalas (agon member) very knowledgeable audiophile,   Iwas tempted to use cable cooker, decided not .
@pokey77 my items are still in the mail!

I appreciate the update. I know your predicament. I waited two full months for a Paul Hynes SR4T linear power supply to power my EtherREGEN - it arrived a week ago. It was worth the wait!
