Who out there wants to, or has, validated an amazing cable find?

I own a very decent audio system and have slowly been moving up over the last several decades weeding out less-natural sounding equipment and focusing on best sound for my money (what I can afford). My current gear is a collect of Quad, Pass, Klyne, VPI, soekris and a fairly large collection of Kimber, audio quest, Furutech, Cardas, Straightwire, DH Labs cables built up over time.

I have come across lots of high-priced gear that isn't faithful to the music. My reference has always been unamplified voice and instruments and attend such concerts regularly though they are hard to find (but still easy if you live near a major city).

It always a pleasure to come across gear that is low priced and exceeds higher priced gear when it comes to faithful reproduction of music holding to the live unamplifed sound standard.


I have recently purchased some ATAUDIO cables from Aliexpress that have left me stunned due to low price and performance. Recommended by another audiophile who seemed credible and owned good equipment so decided to give them a try.

A $26 1 meter ATAUDIO copper interconnect cables is running neck and neck my Cardas Clear interconnects and beaten my Cardas clear Cygnus interconnect cables when it comes to clarity, lack of edge and sibilance, warm open holographic sound reproduction. 

Would someone here with a good resolving audio system give one of the ATAUDIO cables a try? The price is noise for us who have invested in decent (high-end) audio system.

ATAUDIO power cords and Interconnects have proved amazing. About to try their speaker cables. I would not recommend their silver cables. I tried them and while they sound more robust and full than their copper cables the silver cables have the a high frequency edge similar to other silver cables I have heard.

Just looking for couple of regular posters here to give the ATAUDIO cables a try.
Can't resist passing along an audio bargain.

If you don't believe in cables making differences please don't post here and go do something else as you have already found your happiness. 


You're using Fyne speakers. That's your problem right there.

They can sound uncouth at the top, the cable you are raving about is acting as a tone control and reducing clarity, definition, plus glare, and sibilance.


The best cables i have used are Entreq and Dalby Audio Design.

Nothing else comes close ime.

I bought a used 7’ pair of Anticables 4.2 speaker cables for $212 to my door and they are shockingly good. I also have 16awg solid core wire (of another brand) insulated w/ polyethylene. I’m going to try all solid core wire and am in the process of ordering bulk wire from Paul at Anticables to make my own XLR cables. In the past, I’ve taken @atmasphere Ralph Karsten’s (much appreciated) advice to try Mogami for XLR... and that any quality wire in an XLR implementation is going to get the job done. I’ve been using Mogami 2549 (22awg) for XLR into my Ayre VX-5 Twenty. When I tried 25 year old Vampire OCC Unbalanced / RCA cables into the amp, I found them soft compared to the Mogami 2549 via XLR. Could have been the wire... could have been the input... could have been both.

So...been using and like...
1) Quality, Solid Core wire in Polyethylene insulation... not Teflon or PVC.

2) Mogami 2549. The Mogami has polyethylene insulation with a PVC outer jacket.

As mentioned, I am going to make XLR cables out of 17awg Anticable bulk wire. The same wire that is used to make the 4.2 Anticable speaker cables. They will be combined with Anticable 4.2 speaker cables for "all solid core wire" for XLR interconnects and speaker cables in the system.

By the way... the wire linked to earlier in this thread... the green jacketed cable... that looks much like my Vampire Wire AI-II OCC interconnects... even size of the text on them.  This is what they look like at 25yrs old... I bought these directly from Stuart at Vampire Wire in Lutz, FL.
