Aural Symphonics Interconnects and Speaker Cables

December 15, 2010

Ray Seda has posted a review of the Review: Aural Symphonics Chrono interconnects ($1995/1m) and Purple v3 speaker cables ($1000/1.5m) at Dagogo. His conclusions:

The cumulative effect of the Aural Symphonics Magic Gem v2t and Cappuccino power cords, Aural Symphonics Chronos interconnects, and Aural Symphonics Purple v3 speaker cables is that of expansive and highly focused images, smooth and liquid midrange performance, clean, powerful, and tuneful bass. The Aural Symphonics cable system proved to take my system to a higher plane of enjoyment and performance when injected into my audio system, most especially with the Pass X350.5 amplifier inserted in lieu of the Sunfire Signature Series II.

With respect to my findings, it is important to consider the fact that my electrostatic speakers are 1 dB down at 20 kHz and continue to diminish in output at frequencies beyond that point. I believe that the largely neutral character of the Aural Symphonics cables bring this deficit to light in certain instances and may indeed contribute to the subjective observation of “soft” high frequency response. That said, the sonic excellence of these cables overall completely overshadow this minor quibble. They receive a solid recommendation from me and I opine that they also represent a solid value at their respective price point.
