THE Speaker Cable Well, here I can say: Listening is believing. There is all you want: Speed, holographic image, bass ( and how ! ), air ( lots of ) Timing is perfect. Some will say it is analytical. I have two answers for these: 1. Yes it is , but not in the usual way ( cold ), when there is something - you will hear it. 2. Yes, BUT - you will hear with what you feed them. I s your amp cold sounding, you hear it , it is not the cable, warm sounding, airy sounding etc. - you get it back. Some prefer something from cables because they want to compensate something ( you know, cold sounding systems with something warm like the Cardas etc. ). Let me warn you : When you own such a system and you use XLO, they will show you in a way that hurts what you have done with your system ( those of you using Levinson gear - don't use XLO, it is not so funny ....) But now to the serious listeners: When the system is able to sing and you connect this cable I am shure you'll be blown through the wall. No fog, no dust etc. around the notes. One of my best friends owns the biggest Rowland Amps with Martin Logans, he uses Cardas. After listening with my XLO's he really had problems going back ( But he loves the Midrange, and here is the Cardas fuller, but he is like me a fan of the high frequencies , you know the airy high frequencies, and here is the XLO Sign. a complete other world). For the fanatics of you readers: Use them in shot gun mode ( not bi- wire ! ). Real killers, you can't locate the speakers, specially when using one amp per side. But this is another story.
