Interesting review, and encouraging for DIY enthusiasts. However, the reviewer kept his comparisions to other internet based cables, River Cable's Flexygy and the (sort of) DIY design Signal cables.
I am running a tri-wire set of Jon Risch's cross connected coax cables (CC89259) or Twisted Pair Speaker Cable, as Element cable calls it. I am actually using a bi-wire set (two pair) of the single twisted pair for MF and HF, and a quad configuration for the LF cables. The reviewer pretty much nailed it, the cable does not draw attention to itself with tizzy highs or boomy bass, but delivers everything in a very musical, neutral manner. Once broken in, the midrange is very pure and musical, and the strength of the cable IMO. I think some cannot believe how good these sound given the somewhat unconventional design and very inexpensive construction of the cables. In my system, I like them better than Cardas Neutral Reference, and Alon's own Black Orpheus. It is to the point where I believe the money I could spend on cables would be better spent on upgrading components. I am about to embark on building the interconnects in balanced version, and will be comparing them to my Cardas Golden Referenced XLR cables.
Finally, I believe there may be a mistake in the review when the reviewer says the Element CC89259 speaker cable "shares the same design pedegree" as the Signal Cable speaker cables. I believe the Signal is simply a terminated (and tech flex covered) Canare 4S11 cable, and not a CC89259 cable like the Element. That might explain why he liked the Element cable better. If I were looking for a very good cable without spending a paycheck, and I did not want the hassle of building them DIY, I would definitely try Element Cable.
