I have not personally auditioned the "Appassion" cables, but I did audition the "Hyacinths". I have, however, auditioned myriad other cables both high and low cost over many years. One can end up chasing their tail searching for tiny differences and then wondering if they're "really sure" one cable was better than the last, let alone five cables ago. In the end, I found that the Ridge Street Cables ("Poeima!" in my case) were just so damn "real" to the music that I settled on those. Oh, I suppose there MIGHT be a cable or three out there that MIGHT provide some scintilla of performance improvement or that might "go" better with a given system. I will say that after using the RSA cables, I thoroughly enjoy the music and really never find myself wondering what some other cable might sound like in my system. To me, that is an invaluable piece of mind in this hobby.
