The audience cables were very good at everything. However I find the anticables more dynamic, voices more well defined and realistic. Imaging is a little better than the Audience cables. Negative, they do not seem to be shielded as well as the Audience cables. Since inserting them I get intermittent crackling sound coming through one of my speakers without any music on, and sometimes hear it with music at low levels. This is the speaker next to the wifi. I may need to move the wifi and router.
