Element Cable Apollo Speaker Cable Review
Evidence of my recent obsession with evaluating high end audio cable with silver conductors can be found in my two part affordable silver cable overview (LINK), and (LINK), and with my Kimber silver overview (LINK). Element Cable's Silver Serenade interconnect was featured in Part One of my overview, and I found it to be an incredible value and a superb performer punching well above its weight class. I also noted that Element also had a Signature line, priced somewhat higher, and meant to compete with flagship offerings from the very best. It is from the Signature line that I will conclude my silver cable evaluations for the foreseeable future.  And it will end with a bit of twist, with silver speaker cables, as opposed to interconnects. This will actually be my first encounter with a pure silver speaker cable, although ...

RS Audio Cables Review
Can there be a more polarizing topic among audiophiles than cables? Audio forums are filled with animated chats, debating the validity and effectiveness of after-market speaker cables, interconnects and power cords. Non-believers affirm there is nothing to gain by paying additional money for cables – “wire is wire.” Others have spent thousands of dollars on cables and swear the improvements are real. And judging by the number of cable manufacturers and different designs offered, there certainly is a market of consumers hungry for – or at least very curious about - wiring upgrades. The skepticism, however, is not surprising, considering the movement toward designing audiophile-grade cables didn't take full flight until the 1980s. Ever since, hobbyists and manufacturers themselves have been engaged in lofty discourse over what cables actually do to the sound of an audio system – if anything. ...

Nuforce A/V Cable Roundup
Nuforce of Milpitas, CA is an established high end audio company now known for a wide variety of products. They make a music server, the MSR-1, a line of mobile audio products, preamplifiers, speakers and most well received, Class D “switching” amplifiers.  They also make a variety of cables. This includes analog interconnects, speaker cables, digital interconnects, Toslink optical cables, and last but not least, HDMI cables.The new Nuforce cable line is the subject of this review.  That includes the Speaker Cable SC-700 ($324 8 foot pair), The IC-700 Interconnect ($199) 1M pair, RCA), Precision 75-Ohm Digital Coaxial Cable (1M, RCA, BNC $99), Toslink Cable ($69 1M), and HDMI Cable ($99, 2M). I must say that it is rather brave of Nuforce to throw their hat into the ring, as the audiophile cable market is quite saturated.  Based on the ...

Camelot Technology Powered S-Video Cable
Introduction Upgrading the picture quality of your home theater is as simple as tossing aside those coax cables and using the S-Video connections you've may have had all along. As always, you should use the best possible cable for any connection, but Camelot Technology takes it a step further with their Powered S-Video Cable. The S-Video (also known as Y/C Video) connection incorporates the comb filters built into Laserdisc players and transmits the luminance (Y) and chrominance (C) portions of the video signal separately. Luminance, the black and white portion of the video signal, provides the brightness information. Chrominance, the color portion of the video signal, carries information about the hue and saturation. By transmitting Y & C on two separate wires, you avoid the compromised picture common to composite video (NTSC) which mingles (and mangles) the two signals together. The Excalibur Powered S-Video Cable provides one S-Video input (from your video source) and one S-Video ...
