Stealth Hybrid JR speaker cables


Has anyone tried these or currently using them? I'm considering a pair for the mid/tweet in a biwire setup and am wondering what I might expect. Thanks for your thoughts.

I'll try to give you something of an answer. First, I haven't heard the Hybrid JR but I do own the Hybrid MLT so I'm going on the premise that they sound similar.

I changed from Audience AU24 to Stealth Hybrid MLT's recently and the major differences I would comment on between those cables are:

1. The Stealth's are more detailed, I can make out vocal passages that I couldn't quite understand before. I can hear things going on that I wasn't able to make out before. Also, attack's are sharper and decays are longer.

2. The Stealth's are more transparent. What I mean by this, (I hate all these reviewer like terms :-) ), is that the instruments stand out on their own more, they're separated in space better and the "absence of sound" between them is more noticeable. I guess this is what people mean when they say that they have blacker backgrounds.

3. A friend who was over a couple of days ago who has good ears felt that they sounded fuller than the Audience cables.

4. Finally I find that they do a more realistic portrayal of the timbre of instruments than the Audience cables. Maybe this is why my friend felt they sounded fuller.

Basically, I bought the Stealth cables because when I first added the Hyperphono and then the Metacarbon to the system, I liked that they provided nice detail, did not sound bright and had a very relaxed and natural quality to them.

When my wife and I go to Symphony for example, I always notice how the violins are high pitched but there is no grating whatsoever and everything has a relaxed natural quality. These cables move my system towards that ideal. They help my system sound more like real music I suppose.

The AU24's are very nice cables but the Stealth are simply better, (which they should be for the cost difference). I hope this helps.
>>but the Stealth are simply better, (which they should be for the cost difference)<<

You might enjoy one cable more than another and that's a subjective issue.

However, a more expensive cable doesn't always sound better than a less expensive cable. Actually the correlation between cost and performance is marginal IMO.

I've experienced dozens of situations in which a cheaper cable has outperformed far more costly products.

Cables are system and listener dependent.
Bhoage, Thanks for all of that information. That does give me a general idea.

AudioFeil, Certainly a good point. I have gone ahead and bought the stealth to try them in my system.

I have been using mit avt1 biwire speaker cables and recently started wondering if I could improve upon them with seperate high and low runs with no network in the mix. To this end I will try using the stealth for the mid/tweeter and kimbers new version 8tc for the bass section.

Of course this may not be better and could be worse but that's my strange condition.
"You might enjoy one cable more than another and that's a subjective issue."

Of course it is, I didn't imply any different, I was merely offering my personal observations based on my preferences and system, (as per the original request).

"However, a more expensive cable doesn't always sound better than a less expensive cable."

Never said it did. I said it should, and I still think it should but like you're saying, that isn't always the case. With my system, ears, preferences, etc... it is in this case, not in all cases.

Cheers.
Geared4me, congrat's on your purchase. I hope you like them. Once you try them, please let us know what you think. Cheers.
