I have shotgunned Freys with matching jumpers along with Frey balanced
ICs in my system. And I experimented with many contenders and
The FREYs bested all comers in MY system ( operative word
"my") and I capped out at the FREYs as best performer limited
only by budget. The Valhallas are indeed the "next" tier up
performance-wise but a helluva cash outlay price ... "Ka-Ching!!! " A budget
cap vs. additional performance tension hit its threshold.
The takeaway is that ALL cable performance, including Nordost, is VERY
system dependent ..... Full stop. One size does not fit all... Full stop again.
