@audioman58, sorry I didn’t want to make the thread sound like a Dealer advert since i’m just a happy end user. But fyi, the new Duality cables as I mentioned are about the same price as the old No.2. The below indicative prices are for No.2 cables from The Cable Company;
- SC’s 2.0mtr single wire pair $3850.00
- SC’s 2.0mtr biwire pair $5425.00
- IC’s 1.0mtr pair (xlr/rca) $1750.00
I’m unsure what price the Duality power cable will be, but fyi the next model up in the Jorma line (Unity) is $2k, hence the Unity pc would be less than that.

When the new range of Stage 3 Concepts power cables comes out in 2017, I may be tempted to upgrade 2 of my Prime pc’s, but that’s about it. I’ve got a friend who preferred Jorma Prime and Statement over his previous Siltech Double and Triple Crown cables.
thanks for the info. I shall try these when i have the opportunity. I have used Tellurium Silver Diamond cables on my system actually, excellent cables in my opinion. For power, I recently bought cables i've never seen or heard about on O'gon, they are the Legato Referenza, and they are incredible for the price, just unbeatable. I will also be trying out their signal cable which are apparently just as good.
YW hddg. Jorma are great cables. One thing I really like about them is they're like Boulder amplifiers, in that Jorma spends as long as it takes to fully develop a new cable until he is fully happy before it becomes a new product, then leaves in current production for many years which gives you pride of ownership, gets you off the merry go round & helps maintain resale value.
I don't have direct experience with Tellurium Silver Diamond cables, though from what i've read they sound very good indeed. There is a clear difference in this case (silver vs copper). I know Mihalis here on A'gon compared Nordost Odin to Jorma Prime some time back and preferred Jorma in most applications. Though Tellerium is a different product of course. Ultimately only an audition & your ears will be the judge!
@jafant, Jorma is based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Jorma hand-makes & tests all his cables. Though he sources his copper wire from a very select European supplier who really had to push the limits to produce the wire for their flagship cables.
In the US, you can contact the Distributor Dan Meinwald from Sound Advice in Long Beach, CA. He could point you to a local dealer. The Cable Co also carry Jorma most cables & post prices, though not the new Duality model.
Likewise Happy TG day to you & your family!

I previously owned a full loom of Origo, including biwire sc’s & thought they were a great match with my previous Boulder 1060 & heavily modded Ayon CD-5s (as linestage). With some tubes in the mix, Origo is a good choice due to their neutral tonal balance. The Origo IC’s are great value imho. I found Origo well balanced & resolving, but also smooth, natural & neutral (more neutral than Unity or Prime).
Prime gives you a bit more of everything. It is more resolving and extended, harmonically richer, warmer, smoother & more liquid/flowing. It is the more sophisticated cable. Vocals are wonderful through Prime, and the Prime xlr’s are the best ic’s i’ve ever used. They are staying in my system & I have no desire to sell them. I would say if you’re considering KS Elation, Prime would be the Jorma cables to consider.
@alectiong , I have a response from my friend melbguy1 (David), here it is:
"Hi alectiong, thanks very much for your post. I am unable to respond personally after I previously cancelled my A'gon membership, however I hope to re-join A'gon at some point in the future.
@alectiong , here is another response from David (melbguy1):
"Based on your feedback Alectiong, I think you would prefer Jorma Prime to Statement. In my system, I use a combination of Prime pc's + xlr's & Statement sc's, and I will probably leave it that way as i'm very happy with the overall sound. Also i'm not sure if those cables you have in for audition are fully burnt in, but fyi Jorma cables improve substantially once they're fully run in.. It's not a subtle difference. I guess the bottom line is, cables as we know are a matter of personal preference; KS make some great sounding cables also, but Jorma's top cables have better build quality imho."
Sorry about the late response Alectiong, but I was forced to re-register after it seems I incurred a permanent ban, lol. I think you described the sound signature of the Jorma Statement cables well, however I don’t perceive any leanness paired with my Vitus Signature series gear fyi. Perhaps the Jorma’s resolution and neutrality are revealing some inherant leanness from your amp(s) and/or front end? For sure, there are cables with more prominent bass (eg: Siltech), but I personally prefer Jorma’s sound signature which is neutral (Jorma Origo/Statement) to warm/rich (Prime), natural & delicate. Jorma nails the midrange, so it’s a matter of preference. I don’t believe in using cables as tone controls, but I know plenty of audiophiles who do. There are no wrongs or rights here; many ways to skin a cat as they say!
Cheers Jafant! I answered the earlier part of your question in another thread. I haven’t auditioned the Statement III Concepts pc’s to date, though I have a lot of respect for them. Fyi, Jorma released a new Statement power cable which debuted at Munich this year which features improved shielding, new conductors and Furutech NCF connectors - http://marten.se/blog/category/jorma-design/. That provides an upgrade path from my current re-terminated Prime pc’s, so i’m a happy camper.
YW Alectiong. They are terrific cables. Rule of thumb: Origo matches best with tubes, Unity & Prime with solid state, and Statement with well sorted ultra high end systems, I’m currently using a mix of Prime and Statement cables as I mentioned, however I plan to initially upgrade my re-terminated Prime pc’s to Statement, then review the tonal balance after I’ve upgraded my Vitus amp. Then I may upgrade to Statement xlr’s. It’s all about balance and synergy!
