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.



let us know how that Audioquest Cable holds up against the Matrix. I haven’t had an AQ Cable in my system in years. I would bet the farm it won’t beat the Matrix.

   I too am curious how The AQ Storm series compares to the Matrix power cords? Hopefully soon will compare soon.

I've been wishing for a while to try a Matrix with gold connections (I've found that I don't like rhodium), so I don't think I'll be able to compare, which is why I was asking.  I will let everyone know what I think.  I currently have a Cardas Clear Beyond (rhodium ends), Krell Vector HC (rhodium ends), and a custom Wireworld Silver Electra 7 with silver ends (just like the Platinum version).  I've also previously had the Kubala Sosna Elation and Emotion PC's.  The PC  I'm using now is a PC that was custom made by Marcelino Lopez at Celestial Audio/Video in Phoenix, AZ (no longer in business).

Ok I just installed 2 sets of single ended Matrix IC. What improvement can I expect in the next 100 hrs?

These are some comments from Bob:

”I wanted to let you know that they have a very sophisticated reactive jacket which takes a while to calm down and lock in. This along with break in will result in the first week being wildly varying with regard to sound. Just do not move them around and they will jump leaps virtually every night. After a couple of days "Massed vocals" will start to come to clear and distinct individual voices and layers of detail will become scary”

They will continue to break in for a period of 200 hours, of course maybe thats because I kept moving things.
