Recommended Posts

Hello has anyone experience with the cables of Achtung Audio, they make solid silver cables for a reasonable price. And if not do you have experience with pure silver cables? I would like to know more. Cheers

They may be good or they may be crap. You cannot know, because they don't appear to list any specifications on their site.

 

Look at it this way: 

 

Would you buy a car, if the manufacturer failed to list the power/weight, fuel economy, interior space, safety features, etc?

Would you buy a TV if the manufacturer failed to list it's resolution, connectivity, etc?

A fridge?

A washing machine?

 

Of course you wouldn't. Cable manufacturers are no different. Avoid any of them unless they provide full and complete data pertaining to the performance of their product.

 

This is all I could find:

 

"With 12 cores of 22awg pure silver per channel, these blow the competition away."

 

I'm sorry, but that is simply not good enough. Ambit claims are easy. It would be like Farrari saying:

 

"Our cars are the most reliable on the road."

He has pretty good record on Ebay and he offers a month trail. But like you guys say there is not enough information about it.

I bought an Achtung USB cable off Ebay. I found that it compared quite well with the Curious Cable but lacked a tiny bit in detail and sounded a tad "tight" in comparison. However, the Curious is a more expensive cable so comparatively speaking it was very good. Compared to other "big name" USB cables, it sounded quite open and free of grain / brightness.

Geoff from Auraelis Audio has used (and recommends) their spade and banana plugs. Their silver cable looks interesting and is amongst the cheapest out on the market that I can find.

Sorry, g - have never watched 'GoT'!  :(  Although, from reading about it, I probably would like the 'naked walk of shame' that one of the female leads was forced to do.  :lol:

All good Andy, the 3 eyed Raven is the least liked by the fans and the one hoped by most to be bitten in half by a dragon but I'm sure Zaph would survive and indeed thrive if the same dreadful fate should befall our little protected species.  Looking forward to seeing your wall of colour and I may be in Melbourne in the next couple of weeks to show you my shoe box of tricks. Cheers.

I have bought both the rca cables and speaker cables. With the speaker cables I heard improvement there was less distortions on high volumes. The quality is extremely good for the price.

      Item Condition: Very Good
      Reason for selling: My new system uses XLR interconnects 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only

      One of the best value/quality silver RCA cables available for the price. 5N Silver cables (same as OCC silver - OCC copper is 7N).
      Impeccably constructed by Chris Sommovigo who was one of the makers of the still famous Xhadow connector.

      Item: Monitor Audio Gold Reference 20 Rosewood
      Location:Casino
      Price: $2500 firm
      Item Condition:Excellent
      Reason for selling:Downsizing speaker size
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Just seeing if there is anyone out there interested in a pair of Monitor audio GR20 floorstanders. These are the Rosewood version with 2 ceramic mid and bass drivers and their ceramic gold tweeter, in pretty much as new condition complete with boxes, toolkit, and associated bits. These are a very desirable speaker on the second hand market, just look online. Whilst this speaker came with spikes I don't use them in favor of black marble plinth each weighing 30kg that sits underneath each speaker. These cost $200 each and put the speaker at the right height. I will also include two 2.5 metre lengths of the Audio Principe's top of the range cable. I have owned everything from Magneplanar to Duntech and settled on these. I'm only selling them as they will not suit the renovations we are having and had to downsize to Strada 2's. I also have a ProJect Ds2 100wpc power amplifier which I will list seperately. However both the speakers and amplifier can be has as a set for $3000 firm. If there is interest I will post pictures.

      Item: Analysis Plus Silver Oval RCA interconnect cable 1 m pair
      Location: Ascot Vale, Victoria
      Price: $515 including shipping Australia wide (RRP $1,300)
      Item Condition: 9 / 10 (Only because they are not new)
      Reason for selling: I have been experimenting with different interconnects over the last year or so. These have had a run and I am no longer using them.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: I found these cables to be very transparent and crystal clear with precise imaging. If you are considering trying silver in your system these might be worth a try as I found they offered all the benefits of silver, like clarity, whilst being smooth and without any graininess.
