Decware silver interconnects: anybody heard them?


Decware makes some highly unusual interconnects using braided silver ribbon around a bees-wax (!) core. Any body heard them?

I have them & use them with Decware amps...I recommend them & feel that they are a high-quality product at a reasonable cost. I find that my system with these interconnects is revealing but smooth, not harsh.
Dia, Can you expand on that? What are their sonic characteristics, positive and negative, and what have you compared them to?
Decware has a 30-day money-back trial policy. Try them on for size.
All well and good, but it's a lot of trouble to go to without having a sense of their sonic character as well as how they compare to other silver ics.
I heard they were the Bee's Knees:)
Pulease! Don't tease.
As Steve Deckert himself says owning these cables I would agree, these are stupidly good without being stupidly expensive!

They are very neutral in my opinion, which is what I look for in cables. After years of experimenting I no longer look at a cables as a tone control. I just want them to pass the signal with as little alteration as possible. The Decware cable fits the bill.
I agree that the sonic ideal of a component should be absolute neutrality, but lets face it, too much good music is poorly recorded, music that a smidgeon of euphonia would make listenable, if not enjoyable. A dollop, soupcon or pinch, mind you. The easiest way to achieve that is with a cable swap or a tube change. Moreover, great neutrality tends to correlate with great cost.
The Decware silver interconnects are ~$200. The question is, How does they compare to other ~$200 silver ics in terms of specific parameters and overall balance? A vote of confidence is virtually meaningless without significant comparisons. I'm asking a specific question here, not debating system building philosophies.
Moreover, great neutrality tends to correlate with great cost.

No it doesn't.
It's the popular "wisdom," though I'm learning differently. In The Cable Wars, the boutique designer seems to be winning.
One thing I'm learning is that the elaborate geometries that drive up the cost may not be necessary. Another thing is that the physics of signal transmission is far from thoroughly understood.

Of course, there is no free lunch.....sadly so.
