Zafvino Silver Dart Graphene vs. ?

Happy Saturday!

Now that I've got my Harbeth 40.3 XDs settled in with the BAT VK3500, I'm considering upgrading my Zavfino Nova's to Silver Dart's. 

My question is for anyone that has experience with the Silver Dart's: Is there something else in the <$3K range I should be looking at, or not.

(and for sure, before I spend $3K I'll audition a few options from The Cable Co.) 


I can't answer your question specifically, but related to many suggestions already given, I am using Acoustic Zen Absolute speaker cables yet Silver Dart power cords. No, I don't have a good answer why it ended up like that, but I am in no hurry to make any changes based on the sound quality I am getting. I imagine the Silver Dart speaker cables and IC's sound just as good, but I haven't compared. 

Question to @ozzy though, I am seeing a large number of used AQ dragon's; not just here but in other classifieds as well- I wonder if all are legit/non-counterfeit? At this price level there must be plenty of incentive for knockoffs to flood the market. Have you/anyone else heard of anyone getting a counterfeit?  

I have been using the Goertz MI-3 Divinity cable and thus far, pretty impressed. Adds a lot of bass and a quietness to the sound. And will fit your budget nicely. Next, I'm going to try the bi-wire version.




I suppose anything is possible when it comes to counterfeiters. If the cables are priced more than about 1/2 off of the retail cost, they might be. However, they are very popular so probably more are sold, therefor more eventually comes up on the used market.

I have purchased several used and all look legit, I think they are. It would take quite an effort to make fake ones look this real, again though, anything is possible. I guess you could ask that question about anything.

BTW, the newer versions are not braided like the older ones.
