Hi Sonny Are you still building Interconnects I need a price on a 4 foot lead using them between my phono stage and pre amp
I just received one of Sonny's ICs with Neutrik XLR connectors. This is a very preliminary feedback on them but let me say first off that they are VERY well made, with a level of professionalism that makes some of the other cable makers look amateurish. And he does this as a hobby in spare time on the side!After inserting into the system, initially everything sounded really open (I guess that's what this thread title is all about) and seemed to let me hear a LOT of details in things. It did come with a little getting use to a slight harshness in the upper end but I do need to spend more time with the cable. After about 4 hours of casual listening (background music & a movie through them, since my rig doubles as a 2-ch HT system as well), I went back to the system today and started to notice that things sounded a little closed off! Odd and I thought I was imagining things. But some of the same albums I played yesterday sounded different today, there was no mistaking it.My point of comparison was against a Synergistic Research Alpha Sterling X2 Active ICs, with a single Mini Power Coupler providing the power to both cables. The Synergistic cable actually sounded more "round" in the midrange but I definitely attribute that to being a cable that rolls off the highs and the lows, more than anything else. A cable should be fairly neutral in nature and that means everything from top to bottom end should come right through. There'll be some burn-in time required for these cables, after which I'll give a more complete report. No conclusions right now but just wanted to give some initial feedback to keep this thread alive and see what others have experienced with these, whether balanced or unbalanced.Thanks Sonny and lovely system you had at your place!
I ended up asking Tuan to make up a few pairs of cables for me. Tuan lent me some cables to check out in my system while he fabricated the new ones. In my system, which consists of:Bel Canto PL2 > Bel Canto DAC3 > Red Wine Audio Signature 30.2 > Devore Fidelity 9s and Rel Strata IIIDigital cable is Audience AU24 AES/EBU, speaker cables are Auditorium 23, using Rel speakon. I like my system to sound musical. Sound staging is very good, imaging is good, but accuracy of tone and dynamics are far more important to me.Tuan has inspired me to pick up the soldering iron again - give Tuan a holler and check out his cables ? they rock! Thanks Tuan!Wilson
Thanks for the kind words John...Of course the best thing about it is, it's totally customized...I can definitely use any connectors that you or anyone wants, as it'll be your cable. I too never believed in cables until I tried it and well, went from all these exotic cables to just using my own throughout, from TT to Phono / CD sources to Pre to amps. Just a note for passive preamp users, my cables actually works really well as it works great in my system with the Bent Tap-X. I've also made a 12ft single ended cable from phono stage (tube) to Modwright preamp and well, we didn't hear any hums or noises...even for a 12 footer from phono stage to preamp. ThanksTuan
