Re: VH Pulsar vs Spectrum Cu

Hi mattybumpkin,

To my ear, the Spectrum Cu presents a greater sense of refinement as compared to the Pulsar. It presents an even quicker and more transparent sonic signature, an even better sense of PRAT, a lowered noise floor, and is an overall more “musical” sounding cable. It’s sonic signature is more organic, has a better fleshed out tonality (without sounding euphonic), and offers higher resolution timbral information (it’s tonal shadings are far more apparent), and the delineation of spatial cues is also superior. The Spectrum Cu sounds even more dynamic and detailed (both macro and micro). While bass articulation/pitch definition is one of the Pulsar’s strong points, the Spectrum Cu's bottom end is even better and goes deeper (the Spectrum Cu is a real bass champ). While also being a very nimble sounding cable, the Pulsar presents a somewhat more diffuse sound in comparison. The Spectrum Cu's performance level is in the same "AirLok family league” as the AirSine power cord and CHeLA speaker cable, so it should please those who appreciate that sonic signature, or lack of sonic signature being a better description, IMO.

Cheers, Duster
