Wireworld Digital Cables Review
Wireworld has been making audiophile grade cables for decades now, and the company’s products have been on my “to investigate” list for several years. This is for a number of reasons.They don’t pack their product line with too many products. They don’t churn their models. They have an online store where you can purchase or price out any cable in the line. They also have an extensive dealer network.Here is another reason I jumped on board the notion of evaluating Wireworld products: They offer an easy to understand product comparison chart for consumers. This allows a potential customer to understand what differentiates each model in the line. They also provide a clear understanding of how the cables are designed and built via cutaway graphics and detailed explanations of the design concepts. Wireworld also owns patents for their cable design, which ...

SVS SoundPath RCA and Ultra Speaker Cables Review
SVS is known for making excellent high-end stereo and home theater speakers that are priced so attractively, most folks do a double take to make sure they got the price right. Their subwoofers are outstanding as well, and their customer service, ease of ordering, and the easy-to-navigate website make doing business with them a very attractive proposition. They sell direct via their web store, and through a select dealer network. I know about SVS’s quality and value because I reviewed both their Ultra Bookshelf speaker, and their SB-2000 subwoofer. Both offered crazy good sonic performance, at a more than fair price, and their build quality and attention to detail was terrific. Their speakers are always at the top of my recommendations list for high performance, high value speakers. Their free shipping, returns, and five-year warranty are serious icing on ...

ZenWave Cables and SurgeX ZenWave Edition Review
Cable manufacturer ZenWave Audio, out of Lafayette, CO, is headed up by Dave Cahoon, a passionate audiophile who has been on a mission to build the highest quality products, at the fairest price, with top shelf parts and materials. Reading on, you will see that he delivers on his promise in many ways. ZenWave products are designed and built stateside, and can be ordered directly from their well-organized web shop.Let’s get one thing out of the way. I tend to avoid cable manufacturers who tout ultra proprietary, pseudo-scientific features coupled with marketing campaigns to appeal directly those who crave exclusivity above sonics. Yes, there are audiophiles who shop for cables based on price (the higher, the “better”), dubious technological claims, and believe it or not, appearance and product name. “The Golden Dragon Silver Moon” interconnect sounds a lot more intimidating ...

Audio Art Cable Reviews
High performance audio cables are often the most controversial element of audiophile industry. This is generally due to the way they are marketed, and questionable claims made by wire manufacturers, and by the price escalation that has recently reached hard to fathom proportions. But one thing is beyond certain, the quality of cables vary just as much as the quality of any audiophile component. Skeptics love to take a stance against audiophile cables, and the amount of venom spewed is sometimes rather surprising. Anyone who has put any effort into assembling a system would know that good cables make a difference.It certainly costs more to design and assemble a high quality cable over mass-produced fare that often is included with electronic components. Better material, high quality copper and silver, and really good connectors don’t come cheap. And then we have ...

DH Labs Mirage USB Cable Review
DH Labs -- run by Darren Hovsepian, hence the initials -- makes excellent analog cables, including interconnects, speaker wire, and power cords. They also make top-notch digital cables. I know this because I own and use every flavor of their digital wire, AES/EBU, TosLink, Coaxial, BNC, and USB as references. I consider them to be tremendous values and stellar performers. I often recommend them to friends looking for digital cables who don’t want to spend a fortune.One admission, though: the cable I use the least is the USB cable. That is because my digital sources, a Simaudio MiND 180D streamer, outputs AES/EBU, and the Simaudio Neo 380D DAC includes the MiND module, which precludes use of a digital cable. USB has not been a big part of my digital landscape.But that has changed a bit. I have a desktop set ...
