I'm writing this review to target Spectron Musician III Mk2 owners since this speaker cable is made mainly to be used with this amplifier. It extends the feedback loop out of the amp through the speaker cables and to the speakers, or in my case, to the outboard crossovers.
I'm writing this review because of the shock that I experienced when I auditioned them. I ordered my own set after only three days of listening, and I think that I just figured out why these speaker cables are so different.
First of all, I have been using the Duelund 2.0 speaker cables for well over two years and I am very pleased with them. I have a 2.0 meter run from the Spectron amp to the crossovers, and I have 1.5 meter runs from the crossovers to the tweeter and woofer in each speaker.
When I replaced the Duelund 2.0 2 meter set with the Spectron RS Signature speaker cables between the amp and crossover, the difference the next morning after everything warmed up and settled in was simply amazing. Besides being a bit more detailed in my already very detailed system and a bit faster, I had so much bass that you'd think that my monitors had magically been tranformed into full range speakers!
The bass was low, it was full, and it was tight. I now had a bass foundation that made the music more realistic. I initially worried that I was going to blow up something, but since I'd spent about $10k on upgrading my monitors and having the outboard crossoves made, I figured that they whould handle everything with no problem.
Here was my source of puzzlement: Why was I now getting this very welcomed powerful bass foundation???
Could it be the fact that the RS Signature's are 7 gauge and my Duelund 2.0's are 16 gauge? I don't think so, after all, I still had the Duelund 2.0's running out of the crossovers and to the woofers. That tells me that the Duelund 2.0's are fully capable of carrying the beefier signal.
I may be completely wrong in my conclusion here, but it seems like it has more to do with the extension of the feedback loop.
I would really encourage anyone who has a Musician III Mk2 to call Simon and request a set to audition. See if these speaker cables do to your system what they did to mine. At the price of $1895.00, the benefit is way beyond anything that I hoped for or imagined possible.
