I bought this cable with all the hype Mapleshade puts on this cable and to upgrade my Audioquest Type 4+. Mapleshade says it's a "gaint killer" and will slay any cables up to $1500. Well, the Mapleshade people might be a little ahead of themsevles. The Clearview Golden Helix, is two 18awg 99.9997% pure copper solid core conductors twisted into a tight helix. There is a thin silver plate and a very thin, thin!, insulator.

The Golden Helix is bright cable, not suited for people with such systems. Mine, Paradigm Mini's and Onkyo TX-DS 575 A/V reciever, this cable was too bright. All thhe hype MapleShade gives this cable is just that to me. The bass was solid with these cables, the only improvement over the Type 4+. Other than that not much improvement. If you have a really laid back and dull system, these might be for you. Overall a good cable, but easily beat.
