I echo what Calloway has said above. I have quite a few of the Echole Signature line - power cords, balanced IC's and speaker cables. When I listen to my analog front end I am using an all Echole Signature cabling loom straight through to the speakers. Previously I was using an all Purist Audio Anniversary cabling loom, which were, at the time, the top of the line Purist cable line. I didn't think any cabling would make me change from the Purist until I tried the Echole Signature line. I haven't heard the Stealth cables so I cannot comment on those.
You both think very highly of them. I will certainly try Echole one day; a bit expensive for me right now even used. And if they are indeed at least equal to the best Purist..
But it seems that not many know let alone use them.
Where are they made? I read that the designer is an Armenian man from Istanbul, Turkey.
Man what beautiful cables. I saw Fidelis AV in NH is a dealer for them and checked out Echole's site. One thing that I found was headscratching to me was that the Echole Power cables look to have Schuko IEC Connectors that I've seen on other sites for not too much money. I realize there is more to a power cable than just the ends but you would think that for such a luxurious cable they would have more expensive connectors.
Thanks for the clarification. Looks definitely can be deceiving. If those Oyaide connectors are custom made for Echole IMO Oyaide should make them look different so one isn't confused. The Echole Obsession Signature power cable on the Echole website just shows the power cable and ends with no other details.
Here was some old info I found about Echole for those who may be interested.
