for the Spectrum

I recently added the VH Audio Copper Spectrum interconnects to my HT system. These run between an Arcam AV8 and a pair of Ming Da 845C tube monoblocks. The short version is that these interconnects knocked my socks off. I am a long-time audiophile with four systems in my house. I have used tons of different high-end interconnects over the years: Siltech, Harmonic Technologies, Cardas, etc. I have to say that these were the most neutral, revealing, yet pleasing interconnect that I have found. There are a number of products out there that have a great sense of immediacy, but I have found that many of them sacrifice a sense of roundness in return for a finer degree of analysis. The Copper Spectrums seem to "lift the veil" and provide that sense of nothing between you and the music, without sounding harsh or overly-analytical in any way. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a neutral sound.

Product Weakness: Be careful handling these, they are delicate.
Product Strengths: Immediacy, tight bass, effortless highs, great "air", neutral, 3D
