Introduction to Audio Cable Reviews
Every system needs them, speaker cables, interconnects, power cords and even digital cables yet it remains the most controversial aspect of the audio/video world. From the DIY group who makes their own from lamp cords purchased at the local hardware store to the high-enders who swear their system couldn’t perform at their best without the cables costing more than most of their components. The big question is; if the quality of the sound cannot be scientifically measured, can it sound better? Investing in a good quality cable is not foolish, beyond the sound or video quality your cables should be well made, using good materials with sturdy connections. All factors count: the length - sleeve material -metals used, copper, silver, and gold – gauge –resistance - capacitance, etc. Is there snake oil out there, you bet! Hopefully a good review will differentiate those from the honest, value-driven cable manufacturers.
