Many nice gents in this site, highly reputable common folks audiophiles like @lalitk @wig and others have mentioned these, so it’s probably time to create a specific thread on Zavfino, a direct sales cables company based in Canada with presence ‘ distributors in US, also direct:

I took the advice of these folks with a power cord, the Prima MK2

I could not be happier with this cord, something that would easily cost $2,000 or even $3,000 from other better known cable makers. It’s outstanding, for about $500. Absolutely amazing build, and packaging too. It sounds great, very quiet. I am sure the cheaper PC, the Majestic at $390 is very good too: 
I now have the Prima speaker cables on my way. Call me “sold”.

No BS, truly top quality cables company that flies under the radar. Very affordable too. Take a look. No relation to the company, just a happy first time customer, thanks to my Audiogon friends here

@juanmanuelfangioii i just logged on to ask these very questions but @audphile1  beat me to it! I am also curious to know your amp and speakers. I’m ready to pull the trigger on some Prima MKII SCs and thinking these will decimate my AQ CV-8 SCs. Imagining and soundstage are my top priorities. 

Wow did not think I would be writing a review for PTA...LOL

Okay lets start with gear.

I rotate amplification in and out of my system but for the most part this review will revolve around the Norma Audio Revo IPA-140. a fine Italian beauty and it is very neutral. 

Speakers are Sonner Audio Legato Unum on the factory Sonner stands, these are driver aligned 2 ways. I also have 2 REL T Zero Subs love compact subs.

Digital is a Moon by Simaudio 680D Streaming DAC with the Mind2 player.  CD Transport is my Bel Canto CD3T transport.

Analog is Clearaudio Performance DC Turntable with an MP200 cart. Phono section is a SPL Phonos Voltair.

So over the years I have used a lot of cables, Signal Cable, AQ, Nordost, Transparent (do still like them) and Cardas. 

So the Zavfino cables had been ordered on a lark and because of the good reviews here at Agon and at WBF. I had Cardas Clear Cygnus Interconnect Cables in RCA and XLR. Digital cables were Cardas Clear AES/EBU Cable (still is) and may change this later. Speaker are terminated with Cardas Clear Cygnus Speaker Cables. Power cored in my system are all Signal Cable Silver Resolution on the analog side and the Magicpower Digital Reference on the 680D and CD3T. Have no plans to change PC at this time.

 So I ordered the Zavfino Prima MKII Speaker cables and 2 of the Arcadia OCC Interconnects for my analog side. 

So now after 200 + hours on my system here are my impressions. No coloration at all, clear and very neutral, imaging/soundstage is wide, depth of sound imaging is perfect not forward or to far back  (as it was with the Cardas) These cables quite simply do not get in the way of the music in any way at all. Tonality is excellent bass is bass and no loss of speed, midrange is perfect and they are not bright at all. 

These cables are a bargain at  twice the price and I am glad I bought my Cardas cables used. If I bought them at full pop I would be really angry (not really).

Okay this is good as it gets for reviews from me and I have real work to do.

Hope this helps @audphile1 ​​​​@treebeard1

Have a great week. 


@juanmanuelfangioii nice system and a good write up! Thanks for this!

Funny…I was looking at the Arcadia for the analog portion of my system as well, a link between my Sutherland KC Vibe MkII phono stage and the Pass XP-12 where BlueJeans RCAs are currently handling that signal chain. 
I’m looking for a neutral interconnects and was worried the Arcadia may be a bit forward sounding. I might have to give ‘em a shot now. 

Was also considering giving Transparent cables a try but they aren’t cheap(Transparent Super are nearly 4 times the cost), a bit more than what I wanted to spend. 

Scored some prima speaker cables today...hole in head filled for a little while.My wife will be happy bout that too.On the other hand looking forward to getting them finally.
