I did a search for these cables and couldn't find the web site can you kindly provide it. I am curious about these products and am researching the newer cables. I just bought a Triode Wire power cable, which I like because of the connector options.
Amadi cables can be reached through one of his Agon ads. He does not have a website as Philip is a one man deal and just makes great cables for a song! He really flies well under the radar. He is a very nice man and will get back very quickly.
Also, he offers a trial period and Philip will send you whatever you want to listen to. He is so easy to deal with. Have fun and listen!
Grannyring, Would you like to compare with a pair of Tempo Electric ICs?
I would very happily send them to you. These do not have the WBTs (to make it fair) You can also PM me
I would love to.....feel free to contact me.
I got one pr of the 'maddies'. They have enabled my system to sound more real. By that I mean more of everything AND in a more realistic way. Many times you get one or the other, more sound with some artifacts that you don't like that come along also. I can't tell any negatives that came along with the clearer window and a fuller natural presentation. Thanks Grannyring for the review. And Phil of Amadi is a very good guy to deal with.
Grannyring, Glad to hear you're enjoying your silver anniversary, so to speak. I'm enjoying mine as well since I've gone all silver with my cabling as well. What you're experiencing is similar to what I'm going through, though with a different brand (Darwin and Tempo Electric). And yes, one needn't spend a fortune to get this high quality of sound. In fact, most spend way too much and end up with no where near as rewarding a result.
All the best,
Nonoise, I did compare the Amadi Maddie Signature ic's to the Tempo and
found the Amadi had all the same resolution and smoothness of the
Tempo, but the Amadi has far better tone, body, weight, bass response and
Grannyring, Considering that I have the Tempo Electric Speaker Cables and use the Darwin Silver ICs, have you compared the Amadi ICs to the Darwins ICs? I only ask this as what you describe you hear with the Amadi ICs is what I'd describe I hear with the Darwins. I haven't heard the Tempo ICs and have no urge to try them as the Darwins sound fantastic.
All the best,
I have not. All I know is these Amadi cables are the best I have heard regardless of price. All my wire is now Amadi....all of it! To good to be true, but it is! So unassuming and under the radar that one will quickly dismiss what I say. Very special.
Hi,I'm interested in the Amandi cables.How long to break them in,and how did they sound when first installed? What's a 1 mtr.pr. of balanced xlr's sell for? Have you tried the Phil Ref,and Barb Masters in comparison?Currently trying the Signal Cable Silvers.They're quite good,and less costly than the Amadi's,but can't help but wonder how much better the Amadi's might be.Thanks for your reply.
Just email Phil thru the Agon system as he has several ads. The Maddie Signature cables are the silver and the best. He can quote you prices for what you want.
are you still using these cables? I notice that you recommend the Fusion Audio Romance in one of the threads. What caught my eye in your review is your disdain for any hardness in the sound, I can't stand it either. Along with the other attributes and lack of hardness has me curious about give the Maddies and I may give them a try.
Maddies are smooth, detailed, open and a steal for the money. I just sold my sets after enjoying them for some time. I went with ribbon cables from MG Audio Design. They are much, much more expensive and don't embarrass the Amadi cables at all. I consider the Amadi IC's and speaker cables the very best value in wire in high end audio.
I replaced my MG Audio Planus III copper speaker cables with the Amadi Maddie Signature and liked the sound even more plus the Amadis are much easier to live with--not fragile.
I just receive a pair of Maddie signature RCA and it's a very good surprise for my ears. They replace Zu Mission and LAT ic300 signature.
The Maddie is really by the first listening a step up.
The only way where the Maddie is step down is on the level of silence reached by Zu Mission.
I'll let you know more after 20 hours of listening.
After 20 hours, the sound is sweet. Everything take the good place in the space. It's really a good and quick cable, easy to listen.
The only regret is the fact that the level of quiet achieved by Zu mission is exceptional and that Maddie is very far.
I continue my plays with a lot of fun because everything else is better with Maddie. It's beautiful and good work. Bravo
Are any of you using Solid State equipment with the Maggies? If so what equipment are you using?
Grannyring has a tube setup and I have this theory that solid silver interconnects sound better with Tubes than Solid State.
Someone told me that the Barb Masters have a slightly warmer sound to them which I think would be a better match with Solid State.
This this is reply to an old post but if anyone is long for information on Amadi cables this might be helpful. I am using Phil Reference between a tube preamp (Rogue RP-5) and a BAT VK-500 amp. I am also using silver speaker cable. I do not find the sound to be thin, cold, hard or any of the usual adjectives that seem to be attached to "silver". What I am hearing is much resolution, a wide and deep soundstage, and just an enchanting, engaging presentation of the music. I have used many cables, AudioQuest, Nordost, Kimber, Shunyata, WireWorld, Wywire and none of those gave me what I am getting with the Amadi cables. I am trying some Maddie Signatures soon but frankly, I could easily live with the Phil Reference and be happy (if any of us can really be happy with our systems for a long period)...
