A respected contributor on another site recommended Supra USB cables as a good quality option at a reasonable price. After some pondering I bought the coax version for my office system (Audioengine 2, Wyred 4 Sound uDAC, Raspberry Pi 3 with Digi+ running piCorePlayer 3.10, Audioquest mid-grade ICs).
The Trico took the place of a Stereovox HDXV. After a run in on my FryBaby2, the Trico sounds great -- nice imaging, extended highs, engaging mid bass, and fully fleshed out mid range.
Any other thoughts about this cable?
Doesn't surprise me a bit. As others have noted, Supra is real budget sleeper. A few friends and I have had great success with both the Ply 3.4 and 2.5 speaker cables. I've also heard that Louis at Omega uses the 2.5 for the internal wiring of his speakers. Another friend has built up 3 power cables using Supra cable. It appears Supra has an excellent track record on all fronts.
For a Swedish made cable shipped to the US for around $79 delivered, it's a reasonably priced alternative. The RCA pin plugs look well made and fit securely. The ice blue color is kind of funky but, hey, it's Swedish.
I'm feeling good about it since I'm half Swedish. Great bang for da buck wire regardless. The Supra 3.4 and 2.5 are white FWIW.
I'm sorry to say, but my beloved Supra 3|4S are sky blue. Yet I've been noticing several pairs of terminated 2.5s of late.
And having replaced both a $700 and $1.600 pair of speaker cables with these a little over a year ago, I've never felt the need to second guess myself upon not so much what these aren't doing right......., in sound much as what they're doing correctly when it comes to relating the emotional aspects within the recordings, I'm beginning to understand just why a lot of foreign music lovers aren't into so-called audiophile cabling looms, and have always mentioned brands for pro studio usage.
In truth........, while these cables are a tad laid-back in nature......, my ears and senses are telling me they do tone which merely feels and sounds right, there's no other way to put it.
It's refreshing to think outside of the box, as one never knows what lies beyond coloring outside the lines......,,if you catch my drift?.
In this sense..., diversity in components and cabling can be a blessing in itself.
The Supra Ethernet cable is outstanding. It features bare solid core copper conductors with foamed PE dielectric, not tinned copper like some of their other products.
Supra makes pretty good cables. I use the USB 3 meters.
Their speaker cables are supposed to be good.
Alan is right tinned copper cables similar to the WE 16GA we have.
I think the Supra is very good. What is funny is that all Supra cables use Tinned copper which audiophiles always say never use. Of course most of those people have never heard a tinned copper cable. Supra is good stuff and reasonably priced
Agreed on the Supra cable line, I think it is a fine product, reasonably priced, sounds good, no hype. I have enjoyed Classic 6 speaker cable now for about 4 years, gets the job done just fine. The Ply 3/4 too is another good cable. Then again, maybe it is that synergy thing with my Swedish-built Larsen speakers!
