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 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.

While I don’t have first-hand experience with the Silver Dart I’m currently using Zavfino speaker (Prima Mk. 2) and power (Prima Mk. 2 and Fina) cables in my system--and I really enjoy the them. If you have questions about the Silver Dart cables, you should email Ray (the owner of Zavfino), he responds quickly, is a straight shooter and very nice guy. He gave me objective advice when I was purchasing.

As others have suggested, Acoustic Zen Absolute are a fantastic match for Harbeth. I’ve owned the Absolute (which I used with SHL5+), they had such an organic and welcoming sound. To my ears, I find the AZ and Zavfino to have a lot of similar sonic characteristics.
