I have had the IC Cardas Clear for a few days
very nice cable, very musical, the music flows and has a logic, it gives a lot of details! yes the definition is very rich, the violin of Carmignola on 4th Mozart's concerto (with Abbado) or from Joshua Bell in Mendelssohn's for example are sounding more detailed than with NBS monitor 1 and 2, the sound is also richer and full. The stage is big and broad, the placement of the musicians very good but NBS monitor 1 is still winning in this aspect, the musicians are better delinated and have more space, the stage is deeper.
Cardas sound is relaxed but also fast when it needs to be, both NBS are more some kind of a wild energy ... as comparaison think at the fingers of Horowitz compared to these of Arau ...
Excellent first impression.
