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."

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.

I'm quickly coming around from "pope Trevor" to  " Trevor, the 3 eyed Raven" Andy. You know, the all seeing one from GOT.

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.

      Has anyone compared The Rock, The Hill and/or The Mountain interconnects by Van den Hul? I would be interested to hear your descriptions of the sonic differences between them.

      Item: Graham Slee Lautus interconnects (RCA), 1.5m pair with ground (1.5 is sold) and 4.5m pair.
      Location: Perth 
      Price: $180, free post within Aus. Donation to SNA.
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: no longer needed.
      Payment Method: EFT, PayPal
      Extra Info: I had both of these cables made up for me by Graham Slee in England. The Lautus is an OFC cable with ferrite nodes along the length. The website will tell you more about how they’re built. I don’t know how the magic of the ferrite nodes work, but I like them.
      In my system, I found these cables to be be very open, with a warm mid to lower mid that really suits vox and acoustic instruments, and crisp, light, airy highs. A really deep and wide soundstage. They are a little more relaxed than some of my other cables. Nothing harsh or boomy or in-your-face about them at all IMO.
      The 1.5m was made up for my turntable at the time, and it has a grounding wire, but it can be used in any position in the chain. It’s not a specialty turntable cable. (1.5 is Sold)
      The 4.5m suited a run I needed between a phono stage and amp (but now don’t). The cable suited that long run well.
