My first time posting on Triode's circle. My first time purchased TWL cables. My first impressions...
Let's start with my system setup & go from there.
Power Amps: Odyssey Audio Kismet Mono blocks in Stratos cases
Speakers: Odyssey Audio Liquids
Preamp: Symphonic Line RG3 Reference with separate Turbo Power Supply
Source: Symphonic Line Belcanto MK II current model & VPI Prime Signature mates with VDH Colibri
Accessories: mostly Mapleshade platforms, footers & hats
In the recent months, I started to look into cables & thinking to do some upgrade. Several friends are very kind to lend me their #1 choice of cables such as Nordost, Analysis Plus, Synergistic Research & my own set of Groneberg & Mapleshade for comparison purposes. Before I go on I must say that all of these cables are very good in its own right. I have no intention of making any changes in cables & this is so unfortunate that I have a friend who is such a bad guy, he told me "hey take a look at TWL, there is a pair of 2M RCA IC currently on AC from Pete. I reached out to Pete & made the worst purchase in my audio journey. Upon received the IC, the first hour is not so obvious but after that everything is just "WOW". The next few days I contacted Pete to place an order for more includes speaker cables, Digital American, Seven Plus, Ten Plus, Interconnects, & Phono RCA. My first impression with only the IC & got a WOW, now with complete set of cables, all brand new out of the bags "not boxes" I can only react with a bunch of SSSSS in my head... Shiettt, Speechless, Stunning, Shaking my heads, my hands were Shaking... I immediately wanted to drop that cartridge to spin some vinyls but my hands were shaking so bad that I could NOT drop that needle. I was walking around my garage & trying to find a soft wall to bang my head... I wonder how the heck there is such a company who makes cables that give me the best of everything I've been looking for... no I should say I'm not paying attention to the music, I'm not looking for anything, it is right there & everything presents itself in a perfect ways. No need to look to need to pay any kind of attention, strictly nothing to ask for... black back ground??? no no the background is not black... because it is never exists in the first place... As almost every reviewers stated that TWL cables are very "natural", I actually don't agree with them, in my system, they sound very "ADDICTED" & "OBSESSED", these 2 words will lead me to contact Pete in the near future & maybe very soon or as soon as today or tomorrow... I'm now feeling ADDICTED & wanted more & wonder what would the "OBSESSION" Statement will sound like??? Odyssey is the most natural & neutral sound gears I've ever owned, combine with the TWL, they are not match made in heaven to me because of a simple answer, I'm still loving life & want to stay here in reality world & enjoy the music. My next order... I hope Pete can read this & probably lending me the OBSESSION for a test drive without return... LOL... I'm not going to say go get them & make your purchase or whatever... TWL cables are special in my system...
