John is definitely one of the good guys!! Pleasure to deal with and makes an outstanding product; I'm happy with everything I've purchased from him.
The Sparrow had a good flight from the States to the UK and landed in good time. Plugged them in and couldn't believe what I heard. Quite different from the Silkworm yet in some ways the 'house sound' emerged from my Vandersteen 1c's. Huge, very open/transparent soundstage with width well outside the speaker parameters. The depth is even better with a truly eerie feel to it. Instruments/singers are easily placed within that soundstage. The bass is very natural but not punchy (which suits my style of listening and musical taste. Top end is silky smooth and quite delicate. The best however is the midrange. Truly believable. One is enveloped in the sound. That feeling often goes with a sound that is very engaging and easy to listen to but after a while becomes TOO easy and quite boring. Not with the Sparrow as they are also supremely 'interesting'. The other plus is the cables have been in a week and have hardly changed in sound. The Silkworm was a acrobat for about a month but well worth the wait.I have ordered another Sparrow with the Xhadow connectors and wonder if they may be even better
RobinI have almost all Sparrows in my system at present (2 channel and multi), excepting a couple of Reality XLRS amp to pre and the KCI Pegasus digital. I have both single ended and balanced Sparrows.The Sparrow is close in it's overall presentation to the Silkworm, almost all of the flavor of the Silkworm but not quite. It is smooth across the board, but not like the silkworm...there is a silkiness to the silkworm that puts it in a different league.I have A/B'd both and will eventually go Silkworm for source input, but... the Sparrow is a great cable and is a steal at it's selling point.All IMHO, etc.Mark
