This was obtained with much help from Linsoul, for the purpose of a review. This was NOT FREE... I paid for this.
Nothing spectacular to note from the sound, more or less sounds as a predominately silver cable should more or less sound. Albeit with a tinge more warmth.. or sweetness to the fringes of the audio. I hypothesize this is due in part to the gold, being a less than stellar conductor over high grade copper/silver. Although it doesn't sound bad by any measure, so a pass there I suppose.
The build is quite lovely though. It's an 8 core cable, with a gold AND silver set of strands in their own shielding PER CORE! Talk about fancy, right?
It's supple to the touch, little to no micro-phonics, and it emanates slightly affordable luxury. From the fit, finish, start to end of this well made cable. I would've said something more bombastic. Although the 2pin, the split, and jack housing being a metal (aluminum?) covered plastic it feels like they skimped a little.
The pro to this is that it's very light, extremely so. If you like a very light cable, this is one of the lighter ones I have had the pleasure of using.
The con could also be said that it's, almost too light of a cable. Losing the tactility of the substantial presence and hedonism that a certain level of heft inevitably brings to our primal senses to determine "quality," is instead stopping just short at "ooh shiny." Maybe that's just me?
