Review: the music cable yellow interconnect Interconnect
great product -
i use these cables for movie sounndtracks as well as music across the board from jazz to rock, connecting my receiver (which is used only as a pre-pro) to my stratos stereo amp and carver multichannel amp (5 channels total). detail and clarity are important to me, as well as imaging. these cables improved my sound across the board, especially in those 2 categories. i've used top of the line monster cable, straightwire chorus, and cheap radioshack interconnects, so it isn't much of a surprise that these cables improved my sound to the extent they did. they brought much improved detail, especially at low volumes. i noticed that when there was no sound, my system was dead silent, possibly b/c these are well shielded cables. these cables are well broken in - been using for 3-4 months. they also have excellent locking rca plugs - very tightly locking, which once set up properly are great. however....
the only weakness to this cable is its rigidity. it is not a floppy cable, as it has a solid aluminum core. getting these puppies set up is tough. they must be configured into place before locking the plugs. without exactly the right length, you need to figure out what to do with the extra cable. it does NOT just hang - it remains where ever you bend it. other than setup, they have no other weaknesses.
i can't really say that if money was no object i'd still own these, b/c money is an issue, and i haven't truly audtioned any cost no object cables in my system. but for the money - excellent value.
