RE: TEO audio gc interconnects

Well, I've never been one to jump into any audio fray, and all applicable disclaimers, provisos, and caveats apply, including YMMV.

My only recent reference point interconnects have been Wireworld Equinox 7 audio ICs. I have others in my system, but those are not the ones I replaced. I took out the Equinox 7s between my CDP and pre-amp and inserted the TEO Audio GC ICs. They appear to be highly directional, since there are arrows on both ends. I was not absolutely sure that I had paid attention to the directionality when placing them into the system, but when I checked, I had them both right.

I tend to agree with everything written/said by slapshot and - before him - Mike Wolfe. Piano sounds to me like a piano - in real time, with transients, ebb, and decay. (True, that last clause was mine.) Acoustic guitar sounds like (you guessed it) acoustic guitar. The same can be said of wind and brass instruments.

Listening to a handful of redbook CDs or HDCDs indicated some new sounds that were laying back in the mix. There really are no obvious sins of omission in these; whatever I play sounds more right than what I heard in these recordings before. I appreciate the "laid-back and comfortable" remark by slapshot and would ask to adopt it, here. This was true throughout the audio spectrum, including passages where multiple instruments, including electric guitars and keyboards, were played simultaneously, along with vocals. I think it's called rock music, but don't quote me on that. The ICs show no signs of congestion in this music, I heard each instrument in its space, and all of it sounded natural. (Well, for rock music, anyway.)

I promised myself before I started that I would not try very hard not to say anything (like superlatives or comparisons) which would tend to make me second-guess myself later on. Nobody likes hype. I write this with only about 15-20 hours of music listening on them, as I put them in my system only three nights ago. I know that I'm supposed to take them out to do proper aural/audio comparisons, but I just don't wanna right now.
