Nice system you have there Jaymark! I have also found the same to be true for me with the JW speaker cables in my system...Lots of clarity, speed and energy, without tonal colorations that I have found using other speaker cables. The upper highs sounded as extended (or more) as the best pure silver cables I have tried when I removed the spade terminations on both ends in my rig. I purchased a pair of their interconnects recently as well, but have not been able to try them for long due to a pending repair issue with my tube amp. Excellent review, and certainly a "stupid good" product as you stated.
After reading these reviews on Audiogon, I decided to give them a try. Currently using Cardas Clear interconnect an Cardas Clear Speaker Cable, approximately $4500.00 in value. Before the Cardas I was using Kaballa Sosna Emotion interconnect an speaker cable at a $6000.00 value. Both are excellent companies that make great sounding cables. First ordered the speaker cable from John, arrived 4 days later. open the box an thought, you must be kidding. These cables were as plain an ordinary looking as a cable can look. Once placed in the system I could not believe what I was hearing. They are the most coherant an transparent speaker cables in have heard, mind you they cost $70.00. Just got off the phone with John expressing my shock an pleasure of what I just heard, an ordered his new statement interconnects. Kudos John, you are a magician.
I cannot speak highly enough of JW audio.
Because of the above comments which I came upon by accident I tried out the cables and interconnects myself.
Astounding cables comparable to those costing a couple of thou($60 for the pair!!! and thank god they are not washing machines hoses snaking through your living room) and exceptional interconnects for very reasonable prices.
I recently replaced my Lyra Kleos cartridge with an Atlas and John's products were more than up to the challenge. And I saved literally thousands to put towards the crazy stupid priced Atlas. Though that nothing but a phono needle is worth it.(Harry at VPI blew me away with it. I had to pick up my jaw from his living room floor. I would never tell anybody I know how much I spent on that thing. They would think I was mad as a hatter.)
If you don't at least try audition John's stuff well I don't know what to say except that you enjoy throwing money away. And lots of it.
Also his customer service and generosity with advice is second to none. Never have I felt the conversation being rushed like I do with many people in the audio business especially with those who have just scored a sale off of you.
I have had the JW reference interconnects with his new connectors that replaced the Eichmanns which I also had the Harmony are connectors allow for a more precise performance. I did Leeann a good lesson I had a zipper Siltech interconnect 7-9s pure Silver Gold alloy I thought after the dac it had to go first
from the dac it got a hair more detail but not as good a grip on the performance
i had the JW going to the amp end .
after months I gave in it has more body and still airy with the JW reference
I will be ordering another pair for sure. The Speaker cable was very good but my current cable is a bit better in my system .Everything is system dependent .
the Reference interconnect Highly recommended !!
