NEW Cerious Technologies Upgrade - Graphene Matrix Cables

CT Graphene Matrix Cables:

I have been using the CT GE cables for almost two years.
I recently traded up for a full loom of CT Graphene Matrix cables, including speaker, interconnect and PCs, and I wanted to share my experience. I started by replacing only the ICs to try and hear the differences.

The new Matrix interconnects sounded better than the GE immediately after install. I found the original Graphene Extreme ICs to be good but not on the same level as the outstanding GE speaker cables. As break-in started to clear things up, I can hear more clarity and detail not heard before. The ICs are incredible on their own and at the 30 hour mark, I can hear a clear superiority over the GE ICs. I recently started using the Teo Game Changer ICs and preferred them over GE but the Teo has now fallen to the new Graphene Matrix ICs. My Teo’s were and are great, and it is stunning to experience Cerious Technologies commitment to making great technology better.

On the third day of listening to the GM ICs. I couldn’t wait anymore, Having too much fun. I then installed the speaker cables and power cords once I had a pretty good feel for the sound of the GM ICs.

With the full loom of GM cables running in they are going through some strange changes and definitely need time to settle down before realizing what they can really do and very important Bob says to not move them. Since I have a home office I can let them run in all day. I’m at around 120 hours now and they are still improving. Here’s what I’m hearing:

Extended highs and tighter lows.
More detail and better low level listening
Drums are tighter, more clearly defined. So real is the snap of the snare drum. The bass has more depth, seemingly goes deeper, lower. This aspect stands out the most.

I am not in the industry, I’m not an engineer, I don’t work for Cerious Technologies, but I am a fan of the cables and am enjoying what my system is capable of.

I’m closer to my own pinnacle of sound reproduction than ever before.


I'm not going to go into a lot of detail here as I've done that before on other Audiogon Forums regarding power cords and quite frankly I need a break from comparing and contrasting.
I've heard the 5' Matrix (Rhodium) power cord on my Plinius SA Reference amp and it sounded very good, I have no complaints.
I received my 12' Matrix power cord (Gold connections) Thursday and instead of putting it on my Audiodharma cable cooker as I usually do, I put it directly into my system. The Matrix is plugged into a Furutech GTX-D Rhodium Duplex outlet feed by cryogenically treated 10 gauge wire and a 20 amp dedicated circuit breaker. The Matrix power cord feeds my HFC MC-6 Hemisphere that powers my Preamp, Phono amp, FM Tuner, Transport and Dac. Out of the box, the Matrix Power Cord sounded very good. I'm awestruck at the level of improvement I hear compared to other power cords in the same price range. I must also note that it's not a direct comparison since I had previously used a much closer Furutech GTX-D Rhodium Duplex outlet feed by 10 gauge wire and a 20 amp dedicated circuit breaker. I don't think you can go wrong with the Matrix Power Cord, I'm very happy with it.
Glad to hear you are a happy customer. It makes the job of making a 12 foot Matrix power cord worth it! Hint...making a 12 footer is not a simple task. I know...WAH...WAH...Wah...It will get way better as it settles, too.
Welcome back Robert!  Hope you had a nice vacation, you definitely deserve it.
Has anyone tried the new Audioquest Storm series power cords?   I just ordered a Hurricane and will be trying it out.  Just curious to know if anyone has compared the AQ's to the Matrix cords?
