Stealth Indra vs Purist Proteus Provectus

Hi, I am looking for a pair of interconnect had anyone comparing these two interconnect? Also looking at the kubala sosna emotion, thanks
I compared the Stealth tonearm cable to the Purist Proteus Provectus tonearm cable. Honestly, they were more similar than different. The Purist did reject RFI better and had a more quiet background (I guess it's the fluid).

I kept my Proteus Provectus (which I already had).

They are both great cables.
The conductor used in Hyperphono is not the same conductor used in Indra so I fail to see the merit in Jfrech's comparison.

Hi Goone,

I demo'ed both Indra and Proteus Provectus at the same time in my system for approximately three weeks - thus, while I cannot comment on the basis of being a long term owner of each, I do have some comparative experience (I also still own a pair of Indra Betas, so do have some longer term experience with that cable). Thus, please take the following review with that in mind.

The Indras do some things fantastically well - better than any other cable I have heard. Its imaging, particular in the expansiveness of soundstage, as well as the dimensionality of images within the soundstage (i.e., the extent to which individual images within the stage have depth and volume), is pretty special. Resolution of low level detail is also outstanding, as is transient attack and decay. It is also a very neutral cable - no rising top end, no midbass emphasis.

However, if you are looking for something that adds some "richness" to your system, a la Siltech cables (which I also own, so I do not mean to criticize), then this is probably not the right cable for you. I have also heard from other owners that too many Indras in a system might be too much of a good thing, but have no personal experience with that.

The Proteus Provectus disappointed me to a certain extent. I do not mean to say it is a bad cable; in fact, it has no glaring weaknesses. It did everything reasonably well, and no individual charateristic called attention to itself. However, from a tonality perspective, it had a very different presentation that the other Purist cables I have used (e.g., the old Colossus back in the day, Aqueous Anniversary, and Dominus / Dominus RLS). Provectus was a neutral cable, but lacked the midbass to lower midrange magic that especially Dominus had in my system. It images reasonably well, but no where near the Indras. Dynamics were OK, but again, fell short of the Indras, Dominus, and other cables I have had in my system.

Surprisingly, the cable of which the Provectus most reminded me was the Silversmith IC cable. While the Silversmith might lack a touch of bass weight compared to the Provectus, they were quite similar in other characteristics. However, given that the Silversmith is less than half the price of the Provectus, I found it to be a better bargain.

To summarize, if I had to pick between the two, I would go with the Indras - however, if you upped in the Purist line to Dominus (or, from what I have heard, the new Anniversary), you really could go either way, depending on what your listening priorities are.

Unfortunately, I have no experience with Kubala Sosna Emotions. I have some Fascination speaker cables I use in a second system, but don't think that gives me enough basis to offer an opinion in terms of what you might be looking for.
Thank you for a detais explanation, I have a question how you describe between the indra and the dominus, I know the character from purist cable are from neutral to warm, musical and dead quiet background, but have no idea how the stealth indra sound like (is it neutral and less warm full bodies than the purist dominus.
thanks again
Also, comparing between the dominus and provectus which one are warmer?
I have directly compared the Stealth Indra with the Purist Audio Design 20th anniversary interconnects. Both cables are very good but to my ears and system the Indra is much closer to sounding like no cable compared to any purist.

Just my 2 cents.

Audiofiel is right. I confused the two cables. Sorry
Goone, I have owned/own both Dominus and Proteus Provectus. Dominus has more warth, Proteus is more nuetral, transparent, with better clarity.
Hi Goone,

I think we have a lot of consensus on this thread. I agree with Mike (Argyro) that the Indras, to me, are more neutral and transparent than Dominus, but also as you put it, "less warm" than Dominus. It is hard to characterize their sound - as I said, they are uncolored, transparent, outstanding imaging, excellent resolution of detail. If I had to point out a weakness, I would say that it might be density.

For example, when you hear a cello play, you hear the bow scratch against the strings, but you also hear the cavity of the instrument resonate. Cables that do a good job at presenting density really capture the body of the instrument, the chest of the singer - there is a real "weight" to the sound. The Indras are good, but fall short of the best in this regard (e.g., this is one area where Dominus and Siltech Compass Lake beat out the Indras in my system).

I also agree with Jfrech, Dominus is definitely warmer and, I would also say, more colored than Provectus; however, it has slightly better resolution of detail, better imaging, and vastly better dynamics (macro and micro) than Provectus.
Thank you gentlemen for all replies
You can try the Stealth Sakras which do what Indra does but are smoother and more liquid..
