 Transparent Audio “The Wave” Speaker Cable and “The Link” Interconnect Review
Transparent Audio, based in Saco, Maine, has enjoyed its position among the most respected audio cable makers for decades now. In an area with fierce competition, their power products and cables have been favored by those with state of the art systems. Their upper echelon products are amazingly expensive, in the tens of thousands. I happen to enjoy mid-tier offerings from Transparent, which serve my system very well.  Transparent also supplies cabling to high-end audio manufacturers, most notably, Wilson Audio, which uses Transparent wire internally in their speaker systems. A good number of speaker designers use Transparent speaker cables to voice their products as well. On top of that, many in the professional audio world, including some Grammy winning record producers and engineers, endorse Transparent. Transparent cables are unique in that all of their analog cables use bandwidth-limiting technology with ...

Wireworld Ultraviolet & AudioQuest Forest USB Cable Reviews
USB audio has been either all the rage, or a passing fad, depending on your perspective for the past few years in high end audio. Outputting audio from a computer via one of its USB ports to either an S/PDIF converter like the Musical Fidelity V-Link 192, or to a DAC with a buzzword friendly “asynchronous” USB input has become an officially approved audiophile connection. Many argued USB took a long time to come to the forefront as a high quality audio connection since it was designed for computer to peripheral (hard drives, printers, etc.) rather than for audio. But things have changed. Heaven forbid a manufacturer releases a source component, AV receiver, or DAC without USB connectivity. Can you say DOA?Since USB audio has gained wide acceptance, it was only a matter of time before "audiophile" grade USB cables ...

Stager Silver Solids Interconnects REVIEW
Very few categories in high end, perfectionist audio are as controversial as cables. There are endless debates about silver or copper,shielded or not, soldered or crimped, cryo’d or not, and probably dozens more age old arguments. Only one aspect of the whole topic of cables is not up for debate, and that is you need them to connect your components and speakers, like it or not. One design choice that I myself have never thought too much about it is stranded wire vs. solid core wire. As a matter of fact, I purchased all the cables in my system based on listening evaluations rather than design features.  I chose interconnect cables with silver conductors because I thought they sounded better. Same goes for my speaker cables, which have a network attached box to reduce bandwidth, and with it, supposedly noise. ...

 DH Labs White Lightning, Odyssey, & Encore Cables Review
DH Labs is one of my favorite audio cable makers. As a matter of fact, their digital cables and the silver Revelation interconnect are two of my references. They have been at the top of my list for a number of reasons. First, they actually design and build their cables based on solid engineering and scientific principles. Second, they do not engage is absurd hyperbole to prmote their products. Lastly, they are among the highest value products available to audiophiles today. Oh, and they just happen to be built to a very high standard and sound terrific across the board.I recently reviewed a set of DH Labs digital cables and found them to be reference quality performers.  Darren Hovsepian, head honcho at DH Labs, understands that cables can be very intimidating to new entrants into the audiophile world, and that ...

DH Labs Digital Cables Review
DH Labs, out of Alachua, Florida, has been in the cable business for a number of years, slowly and steadily building a base of very loyal customers and dealers. They also have a catalog of great reviews that seem to have a common theme, which is attractive, great sounding cables, offered at very fair prices. I evaluated the silver Revelation interconnect in part 2 of my silver cable overview here. It has since become part of my reference system after I purchased a 1 meter pair.  I found the clarity, resolution, and overall coherence of the Revelation very impressive.DH Labs also makes very impressive power cords and speaker cables, including the Q-10 Signature, which has been in production for over ten years. They have also recently added HDMI cables, and there are plans for a state of the art USB ...
