Home Cable Asylum

Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

Good to know..

The other quality pair of ICs I have here are some demo, Ensemble Dynaflux cables. Pretty pricey stuff, at least back in the day.

The Ensemble's construction is not real different. Low capacitance, six (6) conductors, I beleive also an air dialectric and teflon insulation (though not positive), gold plated, very high quality connectors. I'm sure i've bungled the comparison, but they likely shouldn't be "night & day" difference between them.

Granted the Ensembles are good cables. So the Neotech based cables may not outdo them really.

The Ensembles, while really solid sounding and revealing of lots of subtle niceties, are pretty dry sounding in the upper midrange and treble.

The 3001 are conversely, supposed to be more of a liquid sounding wire.

Hey, as per Duster, it could wind up simply being a case of incompatibility with my gear. I honestly think that either they haven't broken in yet, for some reason.. or something is amiss with them.

It really is a case of "they shouldn't sound this bad."

So thanks for the little push to try to break on through!
I'll post back with how it all goes. I just needed to gauge others who have tried it and vent a touch.

Regards, Marc
