Jim, simply put, the three lines of cables are all designed similarly, according to modeling and measurements
Though I have not compared in my room all three, just the top of the line, Galen explained it to me as the cables having three levels of refinement/definition. There is not a skewing toward different sonic signatures, as happens when the geometry and construction as well as conductor material are changed.
The sonic signature is similar in all three, but the degree of refinement improves as one goes up the line.
well, that does help out. Thank you.
would you say it is likely the aspect of diminishing returns is applicable as well to the presumably good, beter, best levels of refinement inherent in each modle?
Perhaps I misunderstood Blindjim's question, I assume d he was asking about new model cables introduced in 2021.
my bad. sorry. lookibng back I see how things might be misconstrued.
if I wanted to ask about current wires being considered SOTA I would have said:
Which 2021 cable looms are you using in your system? instead.
i figured the topic here asks for a wider set of feedback. input then might be on what is new, but the thrust as I inquired is on current systems using perhaps new or older means to loom an audio outfit.
in my brain it seemed ‘crystaline’.
up there too.but at times I have blind squirrels juggling knives
@blindjim - you asked...
who makes your fav cable loom in 2021?
I like my DIY designs the best - see link :-)
Exact ah mundo! what are you using now. that’s all. thanks.
Can attest to quality of DiY Helix design. I now exclusively use this design for all my power cords, and I've owned or demoed top of line or near top of line from Purist, Synergistic, Shunyata, Elrod, VH Audio,
Ditto on the brands you named having been in one of my rigs or another thru the years.
the aspect of their actual design revolving around the ‘helix’ configuration however, did escape me… then. but no longer.
a Taipan helix Alpha PC and an Elrod statement III PC remain my favs. albeit there is the occasional Virtual Dynamics, some VooDoos, and lately a pair of audio Envy I alluded to earlier. I wish I had never sold off my other Taipan Helix Alpha’s.
