In Reply to: RE: Mark Tunis Cables...anybody have any experience with them? posted by Mark Man on April 18, 2017 at 11:37:34
I tried the Silver Ghost IC and it didn't work for me. A little thin and bleached in my system. Also, unless his policy has changed, he doesn't offer an audition period. You buy it, you own it and in my case, I sold it.....for about 60% of what I paid for it. I took a chance and lost, but learned an important lesson. I think it's a red flag when an audition period isn't offered.

That has been my experience with silver clad copper.
I find pure silver much smoother sounding.
I wish Mark Tunis would advertise his wares more honestly. He calls many of his products Silver ___, when in fact, none of his stuff is pure silver.
On silver clad copper, I've had a good experience with Morrow IC's. My current MA 5 IC( with Eichmann's) is a well balanced cable with a nice open/ lifelike presentation. The Tunis was thin and fatiguing by comparison. And of course as a special bonus, no audition period with a return option.
You might approach the ELF cables.
I like the Super Silver Helix (silver-plated copper) and his ALL silver prototype was also extremely good-very balanced through out its' range.Helix 1M:$100,not sure where he priced the silver IC.
Does offer a return policy.
Tom.....after recently discovering the TEO Game Changer, myself and a few of my audio buddies are done exploring the IC frontier for the foreseeable future. Just a superb IC that lets me kick back and simply enjoy the music a little more than I'd previously experienced.
Good to hear/see, Mick.
I just purchased the 1.5 meter TEO Game Changer last evening. I hope to report back, once I receive it and find the proper place for it.
I use the TEO IC between pre amp and amp. Feel free to experiment with location and report back. Not sure it's suitable for anything phono related though....not sure if it's shielded.
