I bought this phono cable about a year and a half ago. They said the cable was burned in at the factory before shipping. So I would expect good sound right out of the box. The sound was just so so. I A/B it with my beloved Graham IC-70. The Graham blew it away. Actually the Revelation was a bit rough sounding to my ears. I ended up returning it back for refund which took a while and many phone calls. The write up on the website was very convincing; however, one listen reveals the truth.
I am using the Revelation Audio cable in my Helikon/Phantom/Oracle Delphi MKV/ARC PH2 setup. In my system a fully broken-in Revelation tonearm cable is superior to the Graham IC-70 in virtually all performance categories. It is especially more robust and fuller in the mid-range compared to the IC-70. Additionally, it has a lower noise background and allows more detail retrieval. As usual, my caveat is that cable preferences are system and personal preference dependent
I am very happy with the cable. Most of the persons with negative statements may not have actually auditioned the cable in their systems. The bad rap on the company in terms of customer service is not shared by me based on my own personal experience. But in terms of performance, it is an excellent cable. At $400/used it is a very good deal for a cable that if it were sold by a "Name" company would probably go for at least $1500.
I have auditioned two RAL power cords and a pair of RAL interconnects, and my statements are based on personal dealings with RAL as well as first hand knowledge of the experience of at least one other RAL customer.
I have not auditioned the tonearm cable, but my comments in this thread are not specifically about the product, but are rather about the service.
In general, I found the products to be excellent.
I am glad you like the cable. I guess Revelation Audio might have improved the cable since I tried it almost two years ago. You are right. Cable is very system dependent. I didn't have good experience with them though in terms of service. The refund process was extremely slow. Who knows. They could have improved their customer service as well.
